Thanks, guys/gals for making this a great forum. Hope to see some of you at the Airstream Factory gathering.

Were you and your big orange truck at the Region 9 rally in Harlingen? Seems I saw a beg orange truck there, right on the street where you come in.

hot melt craft glue

we had a throw rug that kept slipping on our wood parquet flooring in the AS MH...my wife added some hot melt craft glue to the underside of the rug and it hasn't slipped since. She used about 1 stick of glue.

I imagine you could use some silicon in strips along the backside also if you had some handy.

forgot to mention

Make sure you let it (the glue or silicon) fully cure before flipping over onto your floor...wouldn't want the doormat or rug permanently attached to the floor...kind of defeats the "throw" aspect!)

I have been using clear 100% silicone on the back of 'throw' rugs for a long time. 5+yrs. I usually spread it thin with a spatula of some kind & have had great success with this. The half-round beads tend to come loose sooner and not provide as much resistance area. I do make sure it is fully cured (dry) before turning it over! ...Come to think of it, if you turn it over while.....never mind, just kidding !

The Flying Boxcar thread

John Irwin & Don in E Texas,

Were either of you ever through the C-119 base at Chateauroux, France? I was finishing 5th grade in spring of 1960 when we got transferred. Charles de Gaulle had put the writing on the wall. My dad spent the next 5 years instructing ROTC at Aggieland.

I landed at Chateauroux and just about every other base in France where a T-33 would fit. I was flying airplane parts, dispatches, VIPs, and just about every other thing that would fit in the airplane.

That was before I flew the C-119 in the Reserves.

... and before going to Chateauroux in 1957 my dad was an instrument flight instructor in T-33s at Wright-Patterson. Now those had the same color and as many rivets as Airstreams. I'm surprised you went through a few SOBs before your 22-footer.

I looked at Airstreams earlier in the sequence, but the local dealer at that time seemed pretty uninterested in selling Airstreams and he didn't stock a model that really turned me on. I didn't really care for the Bambi. He could probably have sold me a 23-footer if he had made a real effort, but I wan't even told they existed.

I should have been looking at used Airstreams, but that was before the internet made them more available.

It was only when the 22' International hit the street that I saw an Airstream that I really wanted.

In a pinch, the clear silicone also works good as a hair gel for styling yourself.

C-119 Flying Airstream?

Okay John -- I had archived some of your handy 22' International modification photos. What did I come across but.... I guess you are being humble about how you got turned on to Airstreams. It looks like you were busy on this before getting your last trailer.

John, Don and all the others -- I tell vets every day -- Thank you!

I love it. I'll save that picture. Come to think about it, about a 28' wide body Airstream and the cargo compartment of a C-119 would be a pretty close match in size. The accommodations in a C-119 were a lot less plush, though, especially the toilet facilities.

For all its awkward look, the C-119 was a real pleasure to fly. Heavy as it looks, it was designed to be flown in formation with one hand on the yoke and one hand on the throttles. Control pressures were so light that a plaque on the instrument panel warned that the aircraft could be overstressed with one hand. Pretty good for 64,000# and 7,000 hp.

John - I know you modified the International to the hilt but that ain't it flying high. Looks more like the CCD.

Hi Mike! This is a surprise and I enjoyed seeing your website. You 'came back' for what? Were you an AF dependent or associated with the Deols airbase? I went to Touvent school across the road from the 410 housing area (grades 3, 4 & 5 for me, from Christmas of '57 until Easter of '60). We actually lived in a local economy apartment about 3 blocks east of Touvent (252 Grand Champs as I remember it, though Mapquest isn't cooperating... ). I enjoyed walking to school along a swamp and farm road. I bet the area is no longer at the fringe of the city. I've got many warm memories of living on the local economy!
