So disappointed I went an entire 6 day trip, which included lots of driving between several states, without seeing an AS on the road (after we left the dealership!).

This morning my son told me that he saw "an old, long one" during the few days we spent at Homestead Campground in PA. My legs were acting up so it was the first time I didn't take at least a stroll through the place I was staying! Dang!

Stargate Atlantis - "Vegas" Episode

Not sure if this counts, but I was getting caught up on some old shows on the DVR and came across this one. The bad guy in this one builds a communications lab in a vintage airstream. The preview has a couple of glimpses of it:

YouTube - Stargate Atlantis S5 EP 19 "Vegas" Trailer

There are actually quite a few shots of the exterior during the show. Unfortunately, a couple of A-10's blow it up at the end of the episode. Hopefully it was all CGI special effects.

Wow....since SGA's finale was all the way back in Jan 2009, you really need to clean out your DVR. We love SyFy, but the new Stargate Universe is nothing compared to SG-1 or Atlantis. (Nerd Emoticon).

Yea - we don't have cable/satellite by choice - so I'm catching it in syndication on one of our local channels. I've got Stargate Universe queued up on Netflix - but don't have my hopes set too high.

Today at 1:30pm Saw a late model AS on US 54 traveling south through Camdenton, MO. I believe the WBCCI # was 8540.

Rivet Friday Night Lights

another tv spotting - caught an episode of Friday Night Lights on 6/11.
One of the characters lives in an AS in another character's back yard
showed a little of the inside - I'm guessing a side-mounted bed in the rear.

Also, about 8 minutes into a re-run of The Good Guys (I posted about this show before) - this episode was about breaking up a vintage American car theft ring - they showed a better shot of the AS one of the main characters lives in on the fairgrounds. Had a beautiful blue striped awning. Someone experienced with identifying would probably have no problem knowing what model, etc. this unit is

Group of Airstreams in Jackson, WY last week

We were vacationing in Jackson Hole, WY last weekend and saw a group of 6-8 older "blue stripe" airstreams come through at Moran Junction at the north end of Glacier National Park. They passed us while we were paused watching a Moose in the brush....

Cool to see!

In all probability, they may have been headed to Gillette, WY. Even though the WBCCI International Rally doesn't start until June 27, many units and Intra-Clubs have pre-rallys or pre-rally caravans in the days before the International Rally.

I don't understand folks...

All that possibility and they won't even polish it.

Two Airstreams , one a polished early 70's and the other a silver painted mid 70's. The polished one has been decorated in a Coca-Cola theme and has a nice wood floor(pergo?) a dented rear upper panel and a small dented front curb side panel...very small. One the Hi-way 83 in La Feria, Texas. Located on a consignment lot.
