One more post- My sister was looking for more locations for 2007 rally sites for the Sierra Nevada Unit. That's how she found my Airstream at Ramhorn Springs campground in the BLM web site.

I was lucky enough to see two Airstreams that where sitting on acreage. I went originally to look at an Airstream that turned out to be a horse trailer. It was very shiny. lol The first one I saw was a '71, but the owner wasn't interested in selling. He has had it for 10 years and says he intends to use it another 10 years. I just called on the other. This owner also said wasn't interested, but his wife asked me for my telephone number just in case husband changes his mind. I asked the wife if she knew the year, and the husband says it was WB Trailer.

Excella, 31', rear bed:
Oregon Parks and Heritage Guide 2006-2007, page 5, has a picture of the Excella camped at Champoeg State Heritage area, near Portland. I wonder who's Airstream this is? This is the second time in a week that I've seen an Airstream in campground guides -first, California BLM, and now Oregon State Parks. The new way to promote camping?

SIU has converted an old sovereign into an emergency response unit, it appears to have been a traveling classroom before that. I had never seen it before the other day. I hope the attached images covers all areas of interest...

Excella's

Sorry no pic's, but I spotted 2 (two!) Triple axle Excella's? pull into my lot today. They were WBCCI #'s 1901 and 1905. Are they forum members?
I couldn't see the plate close enough, but it looked like they were either from Florida or Georgia.

By doing an advanced search of the members list and entering in the WBCCI #'s it appears 1901 and 1905 were/are both forum members.

Rt. 107 Between Kingston and Fremont, NH

It was just a little after 1:30 PM on Saturday afternoon (I remember the time because for once we were on time leaving for a car show) we passed an Argosy, with silver end cap going in the opposite direction (West). It it was anyone from the forums; we were in the '55 Oldsobile that passed you honking and waving......

Spotted a Bambi driving around Pittsfield, NH Saturday, looking for a parking spot. Big day for that town, 25th anual Balloon festival. TV had Florida plates.

Yesterday we were out test driving the new Axle on our 1963 Bambi... as we drove over an overpass (going over Interstate 5 in Northern California, at the Grenada exit) an Airstream was coming down I-5 heading North. We slowed way down and waved to them as they went under the overpass. Not sure they saw us though. Can't be sure what year or size it was. Just so excited to see another 'stream. Amazing how few we see on the road.
