2008 22' Safari

After a long AS drought, saw 4 yesterday! I was on I-5 from Eugene to Portland and saw three within about a half hour, all going south... a newish 23-25 footer, a big ole' 1970's classic and then a vintage 22 to 25 foot. Geez, I've got to get better at the 65 mph ID! Also saw a newish 23-25 foot safari heading north when I was on my way home.

I was driving my Mustang so no "WINKING" at y'all, but I sure had a big smile on my face

Airstream Sighting-palooza

While Driving to Frankfort, KY today I saw four (count em, four!) airstreams heading west...

The first was on the Wendell Ford Parkway, then I saw three in a row (!!!) on the Bluegrass Parkway just outside of Bardstown. While I was just traveling by car, I still waved and "winked."

Sorry I couldn't get numbers... But just wanted to say, "Hi, I have one too!"

What is this? A Clipper?

Saw this today in Austin parked at someone's house. Anyone know what it is? There was no decal on the unit that I could tell.

16' Bambi Sighted in Johnson County Illinois

Just as we were preparing to leave Dolly's Place in Vienna, IL (IL 146 1.5 miles West of Interstate 24), looked out to the highway to spy a new or late model 16' Bambi (temporary tags on coach) being towed by a late model bright red Ford F150 pickup. I am not certain, but this may have been the same Bambi that I sighted about a week ago headed East through Anna.

It is probably a silver streak- not an Airstream. But I can't say for sure. It is a shame they put an AC unit on it- when you have one that old it should really be modernized. But you did say you saw it in Austin- if they needed an ac unit that bad they could have put one on the floor on sliders with a false panel on the outside.

More airstreams on I-65 southbound

Was driving back and forth to Frankfort again from home...

Saw two airstreams going southbound on I-65. One was a vintage unit (just before the Corvette Museum exit), and the other had a blue stripe and the numbers 61?4 (forgot one of the numbers) on it...it was a bit farther north, closer to Smith's Grove or Cave City.

Could this be a Curtis Wright Clipper?

Saw a 345LE in North Spokane yesterday on our way to Silverwood. They were from Conneticut and had a yellow vw in tow.

Then we saw a newer 22'ish heading south on Hwy 95 towed by a red SUV or Truck.

They are great people and that is a sweet 345. Alumitube and I met them when they stayed at the North Little Rock KOA. I met Susan south of Little Rock and rode in her and Bradís 310. We got to park them side-by-side and compare and take pictures.

Pumpkin,
You ain't kiddin' that is some adventure. I wish I had the guts to do something like that. But I have grown too comforatable knowing where my next paycheck is coming from, and my employer will not allow me to work from the road.

Vaughan,
I remember the thread where you all posted those pictures. And you are right, that is a sweet looking 345. Ever since I saw those two sitting togeter I have had my eye out for one to add to our collection. My wife wants to travel in a mobile home, and who am I to deny her that fantasy.
