Exhaust port for afterburner! Maybe???

Realistically, I'm not sure, but the water heater is in that area.

Saw what looked like a 30 or 31' Classic pulled by a red Dodge PU eastbound on I70 about midpoint between St. Louis and Effingham, IL today while on business travel.

Saw this in the storage yard at Hidden Springs Campground near Rocky Gap State Park in Western MD. The people at the campground said it has been there for a while, the owners apparently intended to restore it but have not done anything to it. The folks said they would not be surprised if the owners were willing to part with it.

Passed a classic MOHO loaded onto a flatbed on I-285, west side of town a couple hours ago. If somebody just bought that one, the shipper is on the way.

Saw two today heading west on I70. A 90s MH and a 70s 26-30 with blue striped awnings. I know this because the rear awning was flapping in the wind.

hey i got one!

Airstreams trundle around all over the place out here, but I tend not to cart a camera around.

But today I stopped at Rite-Aid on the north side of Lincoln City and look what I found! Of course, I skulked in the shrubbery till the owners came strolling back. What terrific people with a gorgeous '65 Caravel. Immediately forgot their name & Air handle, but they live near Portland. You could tell that they are just a genuinely warm couple.

They said there was a scratch on the back end, but not so's I could see.

Yesterday we saw more than an handful while heading down the Oregon Coast but the prize was an Airgosy and an Airstream parked side by side of HWY 101 in Girbraldi, Or.

Yesterday whilst shopping at the Fred Meyer in Tillamook we ran into a clown that drives an Airstream. The rig was a nice beautiful one and it had a Hobo living in it....

Hmmm... don't think he was a "hobo". Since he's living in it, doesn't that make it his home? So he's not a homeless vagabond, just a plain old vagabond.

He is a self proclaimed "Airstream Hobo" and a clown as well.
