unofficial Usery Park, AZ New Year's rally

We spent New Year's Eve in Usery Park near Mesa, AZ. Seems that there was an informal rally going on as 7 'streams were parked here for the night. We shared part of the evening with Ron and Laura who were in the 19' Bambi. John & Polly were in the International at the dumpstation with us, and Lynn and Ann were in the other International - both from Sante Fe.

Rolling US 17 today between Charleston and Myrtle Beach, roundtrip. Saw a total of 5 Airstreams! One was a polished up early 60's being used for some type of advertising, 2 were in somebody's yard...guessing mid 70's vintage the other 2 were on the road, one south bound, later model with a tan side stripe ~25' towed by a burgundy truck. One northbound a couple of hours later, it was a late 80's Excella tri axle being towed by a Silver and Blue Suburban.

I followed a newish Bambi towed by a newish white Chevy 4x4 PU northbound thru Atlanta on I-75 late this morning. Arkansas plates on the trailer. He was moving pretty good, too. I couldn't keep up with him.

On the return from Central Florida we saw 10 Airstreams heading south on I-75. Also saw a vintage Airstream in a campground next to the interstate. Also saw an Airstream Skydeck headed south on I-475. It had a toad behind it.

Bambi In The City!

Gemma saw a 2004 Bambi International CCD parked in the middle of downtown! It was on the corner of Grant and Maiden Lane-across the street from Hermes.

She got to meet the owner, who had stepped out in a fleece jacket and his pajama bottoms! Downtown! He explained that he pulled in the previous evening from his hometown, Reno, partied in city, and had just woken up at one o'clock in the afternoon.

We're looking forward to the day we spot a thirty-four footer parked on the street anywhere in the city!

We were just happily surprised to see a nice 310 moho towing a silver Cruiser headed northbound on I-65 around the 17mm in Indiana as we were headed home from a weekend trip to Chicago. I got a pic, but will have to post from home as it was with the digital camera.

At the National Park , Ranger residences I think, at Guadalupe Mountains at top of the pass...a nice 70's, polished.

South side of hiway I-10 west of Las Cruces, N.M., two separate 60's, probably Safari or Globtrotters. Not being used.

Sad... but an Airstream!

Saw this one... Maybe 1955 or so in San Felipe, Baja Califonria, Mexico!

The Trimed in gold color looks like a Boles Aero, Have one just like it. It's a 1975, 27 ft. big and roomy, Totally Restored. Great for Camping to.

By the length and wheel well shape, I'd say that is a 1957 or 1958 26' Overlander made in California. Sad to see it sitting neglected.

Well actually it does look neglected... but believe it or not I think someone is actually living in it... there are some very poor sections of town in San Felipe Baja..
