I was out today looking for an address, and came across a shop with a 1959 Pacer parked outside. (Not for sale) They also had an 86 Excella which might be for sale, but not "yet".

We've been seeing "rally Airstreams" all week. That's because we are camped at the Washington Land Yacht Harbor in Lacey.

Tomorrow 3 caravans ... about 60 Airstreams ... will be pulling in ... all on their way to the International.

Heard a rumor here that only a little more than 1,000 members were registered for the International. Can anyone confrim or debunk this?

Met a nice couple this past weekend on their way from Macon, Ga. to Red Top Mountain State park. They had pulled over here in McDonough to grab a cup-o-Joe. 1970 Overlander that they bought from the original owner in 1980. Been Streamin' ever since. Told 'em about the Forum, BTW. Maybe they'll join us.

Speaking of Airstream sightings ...

About 30 units or more pulled into the Washington Land Yacht Harbor today ... all on their way to Salem for the International.

Two groups from Canada ... Ontario, B.C. & Saskatchewan ... and another group from New England ... everyone here has a funny accent.

Somehow I got roped into helping folks park. Spotted this litle polished gem ... a '59 I believe ...

Wasting Away...

Well my son and I went for a bike ride last night armed with the digital camera. Here are some pics of one that has been left to rot away in an industrial park near us. PM me if you want me to try to get info...it's skin looks great except for the bump on the left rear top corner. Awnings are huge!! Inside what I could see looks pretty bad. Axles will need replacing. I tried to clean off serial for deciphering. Prob best for parts...

interesting indeed......I am becoming quite the AS slueth

Much to my dismay found out today that this is not an Airstream but an mid 50's Avion.....did the door knock and was told at the door it was for sale for $1200. I couldn't walk around the back of it fast enough to look for it's name plate...what a bummer not to see AIRSTREAM. Well if anyone's interested I have the owners phone number...skin in great shape, even peaked inside to see the lovely pink stove . Has a small upper left rear ding. Original owner is relocating so it has to move. Said he put two new tires on it 2 yrs ago.

There is a vintage pinball place in my town, and they created a mobile pinball machine museum in a Spartan Manor. It's so cool! Here's a picture and the link to the place.

We went to Ft. Wilderness over the 4th of July week end and I saw about 4 different units ranging from '60's to new. My wife said she saw others on her quest for ice. I didn't go into all of the loops myself so unfortunately I didn't get to see as much aluminum as she did.

It might be nice to organize a forum ralley at Ft. Wilderness sometime. I bet their Magical Gatherings could arrange putting all of us in the same loop together.

Over Father's Day week end we camped at FDR State Park in Warm Springs, GA. There was tri-axel Limited with all of its burgundy awnings out and burgundy graphic on the side there that had a single width front window...not the wrap around you normally see. There was no one at the site or we would have stopped in for an introduction.

At first I thought it migh have been a front kitchen, but I don't think it dated to the front kitchen era. At mid-ship there were four or five windows with vista views and port holes with each on the road side. I would be interested in knowing more about it.

I felt the same way two months ago when we were at FtW. This would be an ideal place for a gathering, there would be a need to coordinate it through Disney to get a whole loop or two with enough interest. There is plenty to do and see, not quite roughing it but lots of fun in the campgrounds.

Argosy Sighting

Was driving out of my home campground today and spotted a jewel in the rough, a 27 ft Argosy. Stopped and chatted with the woman and her two kids. She got it a year ago for a tremendous bargain from folks who had to get it moved because their pre-fab cottage was due to be delivered. She says everything but the furnace works. The A/C was obviously going.

She and her husband both have physical problems, so she is very seriously thinking of selling and getting a small camper that can be mounted on their pickup truck.

I told her about this site and suggested she log in and list it.

Check your classifieds folks!

Paula

WBCCI #9722, visiting the Oregon coast, driving North. We had a brief chat, South of Florence, OR. They were driving up the coast, after having driven down from the International to Medford, OR, and Redwood NP. It's so good to see members! Last year, not one of the Airstreamers I met was a member, and only one was a forum member.

Here's one languishing on the Oregon Coast, southwest of Coos Bay. If you take the Cape Arago Highway, it's on the right as you come down the hill into Charleston. It's right on the waterfront being neglected - someone try and give it a new home.
