Airstream and Parrotheads... a connection??

O.K. so following a somewhat successful post regarding Flyboys and the Airstream connection I'll through this one out to you all.
I've noticed a few... well more than a few, Parrotheads lurking around the forum. You can tell some of them by their signatures. Of course you can tell mine right away too. But some of you aren't showing your true colors...yet, so here's your chance to come clean.
For all those who love the Island Sound, the free spirit, the music, the books, the life.... of Jimmy Buffett.
I'll lead us off.... I'm a reformed (sort of) Parrothead. I was a founding member of the Ocala Parrothead Club. They're getting ready to celebrate a 10 year anniversary next month!!
I was the perpetual VP/Master of Cerimonies at our monthly meetings. The battle cry was, "are we having fun yet?" I served one year as President .... then out!!
Moving to SC put a damper on the PH thing as the closest club was in West Columbia and I've grown wiser about heading out onto the road after a few 'Ritas.
I also was the bus master.... renter of the bus to the Orlando concert every year... mixer of the unlimited 'Ritas on the bus included.
So let's hear from all you JB fans. I'm sure there's more than a few stories to be told.

Goin' where the weather suits my clothes...........

Can't say I've been Pres.. of any fan club but sure love his music and laidback style....who wouldn't want to hang with him... he's a cool cat.

Marketing Genius…he was #7 on the Rolling Stones top earners list last year at $44 Million!

That will buy just about any boat (yacht) , plane, an Airstream for each one of your friends and still have a huge pile of mula left to do good for many less fortunate......

So what's your favorite Buffett song?
and how many times have you seen his show?

t of tome in KW

I am not a Parrot Head per se, but I have spent a lot of time in KW. I grew up in Miami in the 50's and 60's. When I was a senior in high school (1965), we were in KW whenever we could come up with enough gas money. It was a great place where nobody ever got carded. In those days, if one was not careful, the blosum of youth could be easily lost.

I guess I'm a closet PH

Haven't been to any of his concerts but keep my Sirius Sat. radio programmed on the Margaritaville channel. Also love the Keys, Carribean and south Florida. Hopefully will get down that way again next year.

Smile "I blew out my flip-flop, stepped on a pop-top..."

We named our Airstream Margaritaville...
Sorry to say no concerts yet, I've only been to the Margaritaville in NOLA, three or four times--it is cool as there's a historic photo of Jimmy and Ed Bradley as altar boys near the front door!

We love his music! Looks like an Air/Parrothead rally might be in order! 'Spose there'd be any margaritas there?

Don Chu Know....

Seen him 5 times.....Oh the stories I could tell! The shows are SO MUCH FUN! Especially the outdoor concerts.

My sister still has a yearly Buffet party that we attend. We're all older now, and there are young'uns running around, so the "fun" isn't quite like it used to be, but putting in his CD can sure bring back some great memories! Wouldn't it be awesome to have a AS rally at a concert! --dave (A pirate look(ing) at 40)

Glad to hear from all of you PH's and PH-maybe's too. Favorite song....man that's a tough one.... Let's see, oh ya! How 'bout "Schoolboy Heart"? Just replace the lyric "novelists eye... with photographers eye" and you've got me to a tee! "I fly, I sail, I throw caution to the wind..."
I've been to seven concerts that I can remember and a few that I can't.
Been to Margarittaville in KW, NOLA (ouch!!!) Orlando, Myrtle Beach.... so far.
I think the ultimate pre-concert tailgate party would be an Airstream Forums Rally in the parking lot. Might even get some mention from the stage too.

I saw Jimmy and Ed Bradley do 60 Minute man at the Jazz Fest here in New Olreans many years ago, what a great time.
