and i didn't wanna post a lawrence welk video (gotta save those good ones)

but jeez, now ya got 2 strikes...

1. not in the wb'
2. don't like rocknroll

pretty soon NOONE is gonna wanna sell you a trailer.

i know u'd never take advantage of ne1,

but it might be time to make up some wild story like...

"i've got leukemia so this might be the last trailer i ever buy"

and next time ya go at these people, wait till right AFTER a transfusion...

they may have been scared by your paleness...

i can't fit into the cramped space rally but i hope to see ya camping...

like, for example BEVERLY BEACH (any takers?) ,

or some other coastal geezer hangout.

later bud.

I think this entire post "Beaten down by old people" is a disgrace. I would request it be deleted.

You pride yourselves on being owners of "old Airsteams" often at great monetary cost and you have the audacity to criticize the original owners, who lived the once-in-a-lifetime, Caravan life.

They should be revered, they are living History and we should learn from them and be thankful.

(Remember my comments when you are that age, and someone refers to you, as "old people".)

P.S.
Obviously, will get much flack, don't care. If you want to kick me out of membership...fill your boots. Needed to say it, no respect is terrible.

A lot of us are old too, but we have a sense of humor about ourselves.

Love Vintage, I think if you read all the responses to my original post, you will find that I've defended both parties connected with the trailer. Having lived/worked in Canada and met people from Moncton, I understand the firey response, but I think you overdid it a little. I'm not really the bad guy you make me out to be. Darol

I agree, may have over-reacted, to this posting, on this site.

In our part of the world, this post would never have happened. The public backlash would be never-ending. We were raised to respect our elders and appreciate their knowlege and learn from their life experiences.

We too, encounter seniors who are difficult, and at times rude, crochety etc. But, in our part of the global community, out of respect for "those who came before us" we would never discuss these issues in a public forum.

Canadian, that's who we are...love us or hate us, this our lifestyle.

Love, join the international community of over reactors.

Last time we were in Moncton (2004) it was because we got lost looking for cheap gas. We found the rush hour, no cheap gas. I really want to make a dumb joke about my age and getting lost, but will refrain, just this once. Been to NB three times over a 50 year period and always enjoyed the province.

French Canada

"There's no Canada
like French Canada
It's the best Canada
in the land

There's no Canada
like French Canada
Come visit here,
you'll understand!"

A little song I once heard that I thought was pretty cool....

Respect is not earned by age, but rather by actions.
I give every stranger a healthy dose of respect. They then either warrant it or blow it depending upon what comes out of their mouth. Doesn't matter how old they are.

Go Quebec!

Jim, A fun song but I wouldn't recommend singing it on a street corner in Calgary or Edmonton! How did this thread become an international incident???? Darol

Aw, I was just jokin'! I heard that song on a tv show one time

Seriously though, I do have an uncle from Quebec and he and all his friends up there seem pretty cool. Good thing his English is better than my French: No parleyvoufrancaisbien

Oh, and one of my all time favorite sports heroes is from Calgary; Brett "The Hitman" Hart. yeah, I loved wrestling back in the 80's!

I do try to respect my elders. I do most all of the time. Except when they're driving slow in the fast lane

OK, I'll knock it off. I do hope you get your trailer though. It does sound really nice. I still hope to buy my grandpa's '58 Traveler some day.

Take care and good luck!
