This was also at the Fiesta. OK, it's not an Airstream, but it is cute...

We went to Ft. Wilderness this past weekend for the Food and Wine Festival and Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and ran into fellow forum member SilverCabin at Ft. Wilderness. We also saw three additional Airstreams and Sunday afternoon when we returned to the campground there was a larger rear bedroom Argosy motor home parked in the parking lot with the door open.

We drove down from Atlanta on Friday and back on Monday and I counted three northbound Airstreams on Friday and four southbound Airstreams on Monday. This was not a holiday weekend or even really a "repositioning" weekend but I saw plenty of SOB travel trailers and motor homes so people are traveling despite the cost of fuel this year or the economic meltdown we are facing.

My wife and I were just watching TV when we saw a 1970's Airstream on "Pushing Daisy's". Also a "red" Spartan. It's sad when such a small hint of aluminum makes your day.

Sighting & Meeting!

We were coming out of the local (west side of Nashville, TN) home depot and our way home, when hubby spied an airstream parked in a strip center perking lot across the road. We made a U-turn and pulled over only to find it was owned by fellow air Forums members, Moosetags!

This was our first time meeting fellow Air Forums folks in person. What a treat!

It was a pleasure to meet y'all. Hope you had safe travels back home.

Coming home from Salisbury Beach, Mass today, I was poking up I-95 somewhere between the Mass border and Portsmouth NH and was passed by an Airstream with Maine plates towed by a green pickup - who tooted as they went by!

I have seen a lot of them at the Land Yacht Harbor in Melbourne Florida. Airstreams are coming in all the time and in no time all 304 sites will be filled. Happy wintering in Florida.

Saw a late model Safari being towed by a really sharp 3/4 ton Dodge, just south of Rochester MN on US 52. Followed them all the way to Inver Grove Heights. We went left and they went right.

Looked in my mirror a few miles further and there they were behind us! Finally separated at the SW corner of I-494. Total tracking distance - 90 miles.

We saw two (2) today in Memphis, both on the I240 Loop. One was a 34' Classic, # 6199, as Wife told me, was East bound. TV unknown. The other, a Class A 'Cutter', # 1667, looked to be heading around I240 to pick up I55 south.
I've never seen two in one day before.

Fully retired now!
Never start anything before noon and always plan on being finished by 5.
I will never HAVE to be anywhere ever again!

Heading south on "the 5" (trying to mimic left-coast speech) from Seattle to Portland and saw 3 rigs - 2 34-footers and and a 20-22 Bambi/Safari/International.

Camped tonight at a KOA near Corvallis and there are 2 others here. Feel like I'm back at JC.

Saw a newer, smallish Airstream on 322nd st headed west, in Joplin about 20 minutes ago. We were going the opposite direction, couldn't tell what it was for sure in the dark and it was gone before we had a good look. Might have been a Bambi. Possibly a newer Safari.
