Click on the attachment - then click again. You will most likely have an option to enlarge with a magnifying glass at that point... Or - you could just open a bottle of bubbly anyway?

I'm sure they will gladly mail you a check for 3x the selling price, and you can send them the difference, less shipping, along with the trailer...

The members on the forums page represents "current" members. The members on the members list are "total" members from the beginning - including people that may have had two accounts merged, spammers or people who are no longer members. That's why when you look at the members list, there are gaps in the numbers...

A well run, polite and effective oasis in the middle of an internet desert of rants, spammers, poorly managed and unusable drivel.

Thank you Andy and crew. This is one of the few sane places one can go on the internet today and enjoy the threads in play.

40k and no party?

well kids it's been 18 months since the 30 k milestone which prompted THIS THREAD...

and was SORTA a festive thing.

and 42 months since the big 20 k...

which triggered SEVERAL LONG BIG WELL READ threads like this one...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f48/...end-25785.html

and 54 months since the historic 10k mark...

which had the mods posting LOTS of new threads on the happening that were bigger still...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f48/...0-a-18250.html

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f48/...ers-19500.html

i think there were also threads on 25k member too.

so NOW with only 100+ folks needed to ring the 40k bell...

where are the party favors?

40k should get LOTs of attention, gifts, timeshares and so on....

in CLUB AIR...

looking at the timeline above it's taken progressively LONGER to reach each 10k mark....

projecting forward, 50 k might not happen till 2015, if at all.
__________

so WHERE is the hubbub and hoopla and so on.

someone needs to start the music and turn on the lights...

cheers

2air, I hope for a lot more than a 'meh' reaction here. If 9/10ths of our membership doesn't know that term -- get with it folks! We've got to keep Airstreams growing in the minds o' tha kids.

Fire up! (. . you know it . .) Fire up!!

I think we should celebrate by getting me a new trailer

Seriously, it would be really interesting to know what percentage of airstream owners are registered at AIR. How many more could there be??

Very cool!

One thing to note is that we did a lot of our cleaning in the last 18 months. If you were watching the member count along that time you would have seen many accounts purged (spammers, people who never confirmed their emails, etc). We will do more cleaning up in the future, the idea is quality not quantity). When we reach 50,000 it will be with a highly organized well kept database of Airstream owners and aficionados.
