I read the article in Airstream Life this weekend about towing with a vintage vehicle. So, I thought I'd share these "On the Road" or maybe, "On the Side of the Road" shots of the trip to and from the West Branch Rally.
I guess I'd add to the article that it's best not to be in a hurry. Note the variety of cooldown locations.

64, I'm just guessing, but I think you could improve you fuel economy if you dropped that hood. Great lookin outfit!

Cover photo.

I took this photo on the sands of Lake San Antonio. We met on the beach with Luminati prior to last October's LSA Rally. Karin (Luminati), LL (doorgunner's squeeze) were posing in our convertible for Mark (Luminati). The AS in the background is Luminati's '78 Trade Wind.

I just got back from the blue ridge last month. beautiful road indeed! We drove the whole thing (minus a few closures). I liked the southern half much better than the parts in VA. Tunnels and viaducts, oh my!

Keep the photos coming! only 5 days left!

Airstreams enhancing nature

Doesn't this AS make the glacier look great!

Not ours but one of the Alesyka caravaners in f/o Valdez Glacier, we happen to be behind #2804 when this photo op occurred. All having a great time with great views.

Or doesn't this AS make this mountain look great!

This is ours in f/o Denali Mt otherwise known as Mt McKinley.

FreshAir,

Great photos and great looking rig. The old Cadillac seems to be vapor locking from the heat. Too bad the "On the Road" Photo Contest wasn't in October, maybe we could keep the hood down for more than 55 miles at a time. I guess that's what they mean when they say, "Experience is what you get, when you don't get what you want." But then, Marie says, "Why don't you just pull it with the truck."
