Found THIS in Cripple Creek Colorado

We were in Cripple Creek Colorado sightseeing and look at what we saw !! The owner caught us poking around under the tarp, and was delighted to tell us all about his project.
The green unit was one he'd seen at Moab Utah, and gave him his inspiration. He has mounted the Airstream on a whole new chassis, attached it to an old, old truck, and is finishing the inside. He let me climb up inside to admire his work, and we were both duly impressed.
If you EVER get the opportunity to get to Cripple Creek, look for Butch's Welding at the end of the main drag.

But how cool would this be . . . to drag your motorcycles around in a solar powered, bamboo-floored, self-composting, vintage Airstream?"

When exactly did Airstream go "eco"?
Y'know, Airstreams have always been accidentally "eco" in the most practical, realistic way. What's really ecologically friendly is to retain, maintain, use and re-use what's already been made. Look at the number of people on this forum using 20-50 year old trailers every weekend!

If you accept that someone who wants to camp in an RV is going to do so, I daresay there's a bigger "eco-friendly" factor for them to choose a '66 Tradewind over a brand-new SOB than for someone to choose to buy a Prius over a Corolla for sitting in weekday traffic.

Now, if they could only use the Prius, or even the Corolla to tow their AS! :: sigh ::

i saw 3 today of various ages, all appeared to be in the 29-31 ft range. first was towed by a white truck headed westbound on I-40 in knoxville, TN. i waved as they passed me (i was coming off the onramp after spending the night at the flying J there) and they waved back second was a bit older(?) wide blue stripe, hauled by a dark blue truck, headed eastbound on I-40 between milepost 245 and 244 (still in TN). third was a bit newer hauled by a dark red/maroon truck... and i spotted them pulling out of the Flying J parking lot at exit 86 off I-24 in Kentucky.

Moho

Saturday afternoon, St. Louis, Missouri, HUGE class A moho, grey, that caught my attention because it said "Airstream" on the side... Normally don't pay too much attention to them. Perhaps a 2000 something Land Yacht? Turning off Big Bend to enter highway 44 west and was towing a trailer carrying a camouflage ATV (barely saw it .) I was going opposite way and didn't get a chance to check out the license plates to see where it was from.

Happy Trails!

We spent the weekend at Fort Stevens State Park near Astoria, Oregon, with our friends Aaron & Suzie (Argentstream on the Forums). Imagine our surprise when another Airstream pulled in Saturday morning - he said he'd been in another loop but asked to change to our loop because it looked more friendly! They were from Canada; I wish we'd had more time to talk with them - but we had to head home Sunday.

Then we saw this Argosy heading towards the coast on Highway 30 on our way back to Portland!

Oh, we also went to the Astoria Commercial Fishermen's Festival - the last picture shows Suzie & I with Josh & Jake Harris from the Deadliest Catch TV show. It was a great weekend!

Airstream sitings - Moab/I70

We passed two Airstreams on our trip with our 23FB to DeadHorse Point State Park in Utah this weekend. One appeared to be another 23' AS headed into Moab and another was a 23-25' unit headed westbound on I70 between Grand Junction CO and Rifle CO.

We had a great time at this campground and I'll be posting pics under another thread shortly!

Spotted this beauty in our back yard...

Happy chickens are the key to great eggs! Picked up this gem for a mere 1500 bucks and gutted it out.
Was originally going to turn it into the guest house...I like this much better though.

That is wild! Kind of expensive for a chicken coop, but hey, I bet the chickens are gonna start wearing sunglasses it is so cool.
