You canna’, not arrive in Little Rock without clearance from the Central Arkansas Airstream Mafia, wadda, you thinkin’?

Seriously, I’m in Little Rock. I would enjoy meeting you. Susan (Alumatube) is not far either. I have enjoyed your journey. I lived in Dalhart in the ’70s and between Wimberley and Driftwood in the ’80s. I still miss the hill country.

And we welcome you!

And Vaughan just recently got a windy west Texas flashback when his newly painted A/C shroud tried to fly away in the breeze. I think it's everywhere - here too! One day 20mph from the south, then 20mph from the north, then 20mph from the south again. I tell you, Austin is making a run at Chicago's nickname, and aims to make it her own!
Hope y'all are having a safe trip! Maybe one day we'll meet you around town!

Little Rock chapter of the Aluminum Mafia-- sounds scary!

Actually I've been to Little Rock and liked it a lot. FayetteNam, not so much. Of course, it probably had something to do with the burnt orange clothing I was wearing at the time!

Chris,

What are you using for an internet/wi-fi connection while you're on the road?

Brad

Arkies love their Razorbacks! It pervades the entire state. One thing I liked about the Hill Country and Austin is that it has its own personality independent of UT. Go into any town in Arkansas any you will see more Razorback stuff than you will see burnt orange or longhorns in Austin itself. Even if that town has another college or university! The sugar packets in the restaurants will probably have a red hog with a knife, fork, and a bib with a capital A at a table.

I spent 9 years between Wimberley and Driftwood. It’s a very nice part of the country. Good luck in your search.

What a GREAT morning!

What fun!!!

Chris & Liz, due to their helpfulness to their fellow 'Streamer at their previous campground, were later than they thought getting through Arkansas and ended up staying at the North Little Rock KOA (time to dump those tanks!). Vaughan and I (as representatives of the Central Arkansas Airstream Mafia) instantly made plans to go meet them for breakfast and (unknown to them) took Brad's and my 310 motorhome. You should have seen their faces when they saw us pull in next to them! I wish I had videoed it.

They are DELIGHTFUL people, and doing something most of us just dream of--fulltiming and working from the road. They are very lucky to both be in situations to be able to do that, and it seems to be working well for them.

We had a very nice breakfast in their "living room" and checked each other's mohos out. Theirs is BEAUTIFUL. After all of the effort they have put into finding one, this is one they will be very proud of for years. They have put a lot of work into cleaning, fixing and sprucing this one up inside, and it looks almost new!

The shiny pretty things:

Chris and I ran around like kids in the candy shop, taking pictures of the mohos together, and we each ran in and turned our spot lights on for the pictures, how fun! Vaughan and Liz talked and watched us shoot. I am sure Vaughan got some good pictures, too--there's a funny one from when we left the campground that he will hopefully post.

The SOB neighbors came over--they saw Chris & Liz pull in last night and thought their rig was cool, but when we pulled in today and there were TWO of us, they were awed and ran back over.

The only sad thing was Brad was not able to be there to meet them as well, but hopefully they will get over to the Pasadena area and he can see them then!

Here's the proud owners:

With all of the traveling they are doing, we need to start a Chris & Liz Sightings thread... !

Rivet More Pics of Liz and Chris

What a pleasure to meet Liz and Chris! Nice people that I hope to remain in contact with.

Got my photos ready for viewing on the forums. I shoot everything in RAW format, convert it to TIFF and then to Photoshop where I do and adjustments and resizing. Then I save as a JPEG. It’s extra work and time consuming, but I hate to give up any available information. Having shot film for years, the “pixels are the grain size of the negative or slide, which is measured in Angstroms. There are a LOT of “pixels” available on film. Digital still has a long way to go. On the other hand, I don’t miss touching up scanned photographs to eliminate every single grain of dust that you don’t even see when holding a print.

Some of these photos are taken at the same time as Susan’s, but standing a few feet away. You can spot them.

There is also a “Hog Sighting” photo that relates well to my previous post about Razorback mania.

The funny photo is the sign at the exit of the North Little Rock KOA. It’s actually a good final checklist before hitting the road anywhere.

I am also glad to report that the North Little Rock KOA is in good condition. I lived there through the fall and winter in 1991 when I moved back to Little Rock. Chris also said that the people were very friendly and helpful, so I don’t hesitate to recommend this KOA as a stopover location in I40.

Rivet One Last Shot

I don’t think I have ever uploaded 10 images at a time before. This time I had 11. Since the other 10 are Landscape format and this one is Portrait, it made the perfect candidate for the final solitary upload. It is Susan and Chris checking out photographs on their cameras while Liz and I were taking shots from the other side of the units during the snapshot fest.

Too bad Brad didn’t get to come. He is a great guy and they would have liked each other. Besides, I rarely have the opportunity to be in a group of 3 guys where I have the most hair. I don’t think that has ever happened.

I laughed out loud, Vaughan!!! But no--you had the most hair at AoA, too (out of you, Gene & Steve).

And speaking of hair, nice shot of the part in mine... !

It was a fun day!

Susan

This was a more flattering shot of either of you than my first one. You had this odd scrunched frown and Chris had his eyes closed. You both owe me for not putting that one up! I wouldn’t do that to friends.

It really was a lot of fun!
