On my trip last summer from Oregon to Texas I counted less than 5. It was all highway though. One Airstreamer rubber necked hard when he saw my 76 motorhome. Yeah, they exist!

Well in light of the April Tornado season we had this year where the power was out for a week a CB would have been nice to have. Cell phones were dead as well. Ham radios and CB radios are going to be what is left when everything dies a few hours after the power goes out. That is assuming you have a way to power the thing.

Being an old retired trucker I would not travel without the CB. Always on 19. The newer ones also have the emergency weather bands automatic. Sal.

From a recent experience, people think broken down Airstreams are worth 85k these days.

Broken down ones have that special patina antique lovers like so much. That's why I leave mine outside, hoping to get the patina faster and make some real money on it. Maybe I can speed it up with the pressure washer on high.

On our recent trip we stopped for the night at a State park campground just north of Beaumont, TX. Of the nine units in the park, four were Airstreams. I thought that I had missed a memo about a gathering, but nor so.

Only if you put a borax, salt and diatomaceous earth solution in the pressure washer.

For 85k,having the interior completly ripped to pieces is a big selling point, also. Be sure to back it over something, as that gives "Mr. Fixit" something to do on those long winter nights.

I started Streamin with my parents back in 1962. At that time us kids were always excited to watch for the next AS and quickly look up their number. Every where we went there were AS. Now you are lucky to see a couple in a day of driving and many people don't know about the blinking of your head lights. Of course there are many RV brands out there now.

They are all sitting in storage in Richmond, Ca. Every time I pick ours up for an outing they are all there. Dirty and sad. Too bad. How often do you travel in a year? We do at least 12 trips.
