In the next zipcode

Found this one parked in the backyard nearby. Looks like they're getting ready to go camping.

airstream sightings

Just returned from sightseeing near Dodgeville, Wisconsin. An early-to-mid-1970s Airstream was parked beside the road with a For Sale sign -- price indicated was $4,500. It appeared to be either a Trade Wind or Overlander. The location was at US 18 a few blocks South of Lands End.

It was not me..

I'm a wimp on this. I was supposed to be on the road from Dallas to Indianapolis yesterday to deliver the Caravel to the new owners. Weather, including hail everywhere, delayed the trip. Again today same thing. The Caravel is tucked away in the barn.
I called the owners who were on the way via Springfield, MO. to St. Louis then to Indy. As I was explaining my delay they hollered that they were coming up on three Airstreams ...a Sovereign, an Excella and ???....all headed east. Wondered if they got hammered last night and if they are on the way to Moraine Rally.

Was out running errands the other day saw 2 A/S. One I see on a regular basis, beauty little super shiney Bambi in a driveway on Northern & 14th in Central Phoenix the other in a storage lot on Northern & Grand Ave in Glendale.
I sure love the Bambi, I drool every time I drive past it, so lucky they get to park their's in the drive...envy.

I saw an interstate and an 80's Excella going north on Hwy 55. Likely going to Moraine View.

Yesterday at 1 pm I was west bound on I-94 just past the Grass Lake Michigan exit. When I passed the rest stop on the west bound side I first saw a HUGE Airstream with three sets of wheels parked in the semi/camper lot.

Grinning I then noticed that there were at least four more Airstreams of various sizes lined up parked at the rest area. A mini-rally? I rarely see any Airstreams on I-94 so seeing five together was a real treat!

Those Airstreams were probably owned by WBCCI members headed to the International Rally in Madison, WI. The official start-date is only a week away.

Met 2 Airstreams going west on I-74 Sunday morning, about 9:00 am near the Indiana-Illinois line. Then met 2 more going north on I-57 south of Champaign, IL, Sunday evening about 7 pm. Probably going to the International.

Bent Airstream

Spotted near Sutton's Bay, MI. More than just a parking lot dent!

Spotted a 1950's something Airstream, couldn't get close enough to tell as it was going away from us. Several front panels, about 24' or so, at the Petro turnoff in Joplin, headed south on 86 highway. Towed by a red pickup.

Saw a smaller vintage A/S northbound on Rt 16 in Ossipee, NH at 5 p.m. on last Thursday. Towed by a blue and white vintage jeep or suburban - red numbers in back window were 10776 - I think. I expect they were headed for the vintage rally in N. Conway which was last weekend. Hope those folks had fun in the rain.
