First glimpse

Wow, did we ever have a lot of new beginnings in 2006! We bought our first Airstream, towed a trailer for the first time ever, camped in a trailer for the fist time, and attended our first Airstream Rally.

Here's a picture of the first glimpse of our new silver dream trailer - last June in Colorado.

Here are two photos of our new beginning with our first AS that we purchased last July. We purchased it at Toscano RV in Los Banos, CA and took delivery during the heat wave we had. It was 116 degrees that day. Anyway, the first shot is me goofing around during the inspection. The second shot is the first day in our driveway.

Take Your Airstream to Work Day

On the first day of 2007 the AS got to see where we work, for the first time! We were headed down Pacific Coast Highway and needed air in an inside dual. Luckily there was a LA County Fire Station on the way. I couldn't pass the chance to take this picture.

First attempt at polishing

Here's a couple of pictures from our first polishing attempt over the 2006 Summer. It was stop and go until we got the hang of it. Still have a long ways to go, but it's starting to look like someone loves her!

Hi All-

Well this is off to a great start, here it is only the third day of the month and we are getting some really fun photos. Keep them coming. The more photos there are the harder you make it for me and I love a good task! I also love a great photo!

be connected with a new begining.
It could be a new Airstream for you, it could be a new interior, a new relationship, a new toaster. Use your imaginations and have fun!

I look forward to seeing all you great photos in the month to come! Rick
Happy New Year to all! We had so many 1sts this last year. We moved to Georgia, we added mom and sis to our home, we added Gus, my new job, her retirement. We bought another (larger) AS.

In restrospect, I wish I had gotten out of my truck with my camera when we were bringing our 31' home and got stuck on our driveway. That would have been a pic. At 12:15am, we rounded the curve in the driveway to go up, but I couldn't make it. The tires spun on the gravel, the rear of the AS dragged and we stopped. I surveyed our position, then backed down the hill into the neighbors drive then gunned it back up. Here is the first pic at home in the driveway. It means something to me...after driving from Ocala FL to finally make it home, then get stuck in the driveway after midnight.

Good luck to all, and may everybody enjoy the fun photos.
