Our welcome to the Airstream family
It was in our first fifty miles of towing that the AC cowling lifted off and reduced itself to white confetti along the interstate. After a frantic hour of calls to AS (on hold), andvisits to roadside RV dealers, etc and we were on our way across the Missouri Bootheel with a 38 MPH crosswind, heading for a Camper World that had a replacement.
At this point we were only mildly hysterical --we had a plan, the Safari was pulling well, and that Huge wall cloud was still 30 miles away.
In the rearview I see a SUV with bike racks pull out to pass. "Cool, fellow biker." When I looked back, the vehicle was alongside and a pretty young woman was pointing to an Airstream sun visor and giving us a big smile and Thumbs Up. We waved and blinked them into the lane ahead of us and then we saw the AIR sticker on the rear. "Welcome to the Airstream family," we thought. "This is going to be OK. "
Thanks to that Air Forum couple and to the many Airstreamers who have pulled alongside at rest areas or visited at campsites. You have all made our first three months a joy.
