Now that is creative recycling!

Ut & co

On Oct 10, we spotted a couple of 'streams near Moab, UT headed north, Managed to wave at the 'hi' at the first one and got a wave back.

Then we passed through Cortez, and spotted these 2 right after we got gas. Too bad they weren't open, or we would have stopped for a cup of joe.

Airstream sighting, Ohiopyle

Here's a picture of an Airstream sighted in Ohiopyle PA on Oct. 10th. The truck had a California license plate on it and the trailer had a Texas license plate. These folks were far from home!

I was in Bellflower CA yesterday checking on my 2001 boxy non AS when I decided to cruz thru the rest of the RV storage place looking for AS's.. This place has about 300 sites and only 1 AS in the whole bunch. (but there was one Avion? by Fleetwood -- one of the AS clones for sale -- an '86 model -- I'll stick with the real McCoy when the time comes). It's a 50's model of some sort -- single axle, pretty rough looking, hadn't moved in a number of years. I'll take a pic next time I'm over there (likely this weekend).

We've been on the road a few days from L.A. to San Francisco, and have seen several silver bretheren. First we saw a nice Bambi driving through Laguna Hills on Moulton a few times while at my parents. A cute 75th Anniversary Bambi was parked next to us in Marina Dunes RV park near Monterey - I popped in for a talk with the nice couple from Berkeley.

Making our way into Santa Cruz yesterday we saw a newer 16 footer in a storage lot on the west end of town. Later we saw this not-so-loved 70's model in a driveway, and another little Bambi or Safari Sport, 17-ish feet in a driveway in the north part of town.

Getting up this morning in a torrential downpour at the Costanoa KOA in Pescadero, we noticed this big trailer near ours and swung around for a quick photo.

While rolling through Pacifica this afternoon, we saw a 64 or 65 Globe Trotter and pulled over for a closer look. No tanks, I'm guessing it's a work in progress.

Tonight, pulling into the Petaluma KOA, we passed WBCCI number 8344, a 34-ish trailer with a nice slide-out.

Looking forward to seeing many more as we continue up towards Mendocino tomorrow!

As my wife travel up and down the road we say "Airstream Alert" whenever we see a silver beauty pass by. We saw quite a few this past week going south as we traveled north on I-65 in Kentucky.

Posted this in the Flying Cloud forum and thought I would add the link here as this might have been more appropriate.

Airstreams in York, PA

I attended the Train Collectors Association (TCA) train meet in York, PA this past week. I found five other Airstreams camped on the fairgrounds besides my own. They were from Michigan, New Jersey (2), New York, and one unknown. Here they are:

Lowes Motor Speedway

Lowes Motor Speedway, this weekend. I never did see anybody that looked like they were camping in it, so I could not find out anything about the age or history of the trailer.

Sighting in NH

On Route 16 in approximately Milton NH is passed an A/S which was northbound - about 25 ', not new but nice with a blue stripe, pulled by a pickup - it was gone before I could get any details at 65 mph.
