The biggest risk I have is providing sharing what I consider to be my vast driving experience to Donna while she is doing the towing. I know from time to time the thought has crossed her mind (maybe more often than I'd like to think) that on the next curve it would be an easy thing to just reach over to the passenger door handle, pop it open, and give me a shove as we travel along some lonely mountainous road with a sheer drop off of several thousand feet. It is a darned good thing she's a pacifist, although I have seen a certain look in her eyes a few times that scares me, after I've made a particularly good suggestion about how I would handle a specific situation if I were behind the wheel at the time. I suspect the thought is that it wouldn't take much to put me under the wheels.......

Oh well, nothing duct tape won't cure...

We wnet to dinner last night and saw a newer three axle classic 30+ feet long and a vintage 20+ maybe in the same lot at the Eastside Market. The vintage A/S was surrounded by chainlink fencing eith some greenery for sale. Have to go back over that way today and will get a pick and visit if there is still anyone there.

Spotted 2 on the road over the last couple of days, one on the 4th at the intersection of hwys 60 and 71 west of Neosho, turning north on 71; ( and older 7 panel? nicely polished), the second one yesterday on I-44 headed west , east of Joplin, (we were going east) towed by a red pickup. Sorry, no details, too fast and far away. Also passed one going east on I-44 from Tulsa, blue SUV, on July 1. Airstreams on the move!

Passed three Airstreams at different times this afternoon. They were all heading west on Hwy 70 west of St. Louis, MO. Most notably was WBCCI 1414 that was nicely polished.

Awesome picture, awesome AS....Love the concept of the Army! Thanks for sharing

I'm not sure of the participant numbers but there were not that many that are going the whole 3,000 miles. Anyone was free to jump in the convoy and go for as many miles as they wanted. They were fed and entertained by various hte VFW, American Legion, AmVets, and other civic groups that like veterans.

The last I checked they group was in Cheyenne, WY. They are a lot tougher than I am!

Picking up some fourth of July supplies on Friday and the girls scream "Airstream!". Yes a small vintage towed by a dark full size truck rolled on through the Pavilions lot in Long Beach. We all waved and he waved back. MY 13 year old freaked when I suggested we follow him so we could chat. Teenagers!

On Saturday morning I saw what looked to be a mid '60s Overlander at the Leesport Diner in Leesport, PA. The Wally numbers were 2224 and the membership book lists those numbers as being from Kansas.
