You mean to tell me you intentionally went camping in 130 degree heat?
That's dedication, man! And that Argy looks pretty rough. Hope somebody can rescue that rascal.

Spotted 1 A/S headed south into Florence, OR this morning on US 101, and saw another parked at Sea Lion Caves on the 101 (had a Ford TV with a white inflatable raft in the bed. Still learning models and length estimates.

We were camping in April. Luckilly it was only in the low 90's then. I wouldn't brave the desert this time of year.

I do hope somebody rescues that Argosy. Hard to imagine what path it must've followed to wind up there.

Just finished our Sunday evening meal and this beautiful vehicle arrived.

A rare site in our country to see two Airstreams parked next door to each other. Made our day.

Hi,

2 31ft soveriegns parked side by side in Shady Oasis in victorville ca last 2 nights, us and some forum friends had a mini rally.

On the way home this morning, saw 2 Argosys along I15 going South. One parked on private property, about a 24ft and one in a storage yard near Norco, about a 24 ft. Both could use some TLC.

Well we arrived at Apache Campground Myrtle Beach friday night about 1 am and got parked enough to go to sleep but what did I see when arriving, a early to mid 60's Avion parked just a few spaces down from us. Next morning on our way out took a drive through the Park and low and behold a 34 Excella 1000 parked just a few rows from us, what a nice looking unit, the Wbcci number was 188?? and I forgot what is was should have written it down, dang. Tried to catch them at home but no luck, they pulled out this am before I had a chance to catch them.

Funny how I saw the exact same thing . I should add that we were the other "friends" at the mini-rally. A great time was had by all attending!

Boy do we love traveling - keep spotting more Air Streams. Saw an 07 or 08 25' Safari in the Safeway parking lot in Florence, OR this morning, and as we got home, a sort-of close neighbor/book dealer (1/2 mile away) was pulling out of his yard with his A/S.

That motor home looks familiar. You should PM ALANSD on this site and see if that was his. That would be a coincidence to see two Airstreams together in the UK and both of them from this forum.

I saw one camping in the Cabela's parking lot in Hammond, Indiana on my way home from Milwaukee, Wi on Saturday night. Then on Sunday afternoon I was sitting on the deck and happen to look up and there was one right before me headed north on 231.

I was working in the Bay Area yesterday and just finished taking some photos of a building so my camera was sitting on the car seat next to me, grabbed it and almost missed this one, I think it was being pulled by a dakota, not sure (and there was a kayak or canoe on the tv).
