Angry Where is everyone???????

We have just finished a 3695 mile trip from Richmond, TX to Warren, Ohio to Kansas and back home.

We traveled Interstates
, US highways, state and county roads.

We traveled for 24 days....

and saw ONLY THREE fellow Airstreamers on the road.

Yes, it was hot on the road, but it is summertime.

We logged 5990 miles round trip from MD to MT and back. I would say we saw six or seven Airstreams the entire trip.

I saw one headed south going out of Altus...started to go follow them (like a groupie) and instead went on about my business.

Just did 3 weeks from NM to WA and back. Only saw a couple.

A couple of stops drew crowds. I remember a couple of years ago at Flaming Gorge I had a whole busload of Italian tourists run over to take pictures.

where is everyone?

California's northern coast. We recently went on five day 700 mile camping trip from Sacramento north to Fort Bragg then south along the coast to San Francisco then back home to Sac. and had the pleasure of counting 27 fellow streamers . 6 parked next to homes, 3 at storage facilities, 5 were heading south as we heading north, 10 were heading north as we were heading south, and 3 were heading west as we returned east to home. All of them seem to have been traveling alone.

I've made several trips to the Northern part of Michigan and I have seen over a dozen AS. Maybe going North to try to escape the heat. Last weekend the temp dropped to the mid 40's overnight in Northern Michigan. Pretty hot right now however....Tim

10,250 miles and maybe 10-12 except for the caravan we saw going north in British Columbia on the Alaska Hwy.

The others may be hiding at an undisclosed location.

Airstreams seen

Hi from Ga. . . We went from Atl to Phoenix starting June 23rd, (via Monument Valley) and on to LA beaches and back. Nearly 6k miles and we saw 12 or 13 Airstreams. Enjoyed each one. Regards, Craig

We drove from Eugene, Oregon to Seattle on Friday, then back again on Sunday. We saw 13 airstreams, both new and vintage. Even a couple of beloved 16' bambis.

Apparently you all are hanging out in the pacific northwest.
