Big Day for Airstream Sightings

Spotted this one (see pic) on west bound I-80, just east of Colfax, CA, about 10:00 AM yesterday. He was sporting Michigan plates and towing behind a Dodge Dakota. Then, not less thatn 5 minutes later, a new AS passed in the opposite direction.

That evening, about 7:00 PM, spotted another vintage AS on Southbound I-680, near Benecia, CA. Finally, another one on I-80, westbound, near Auburn, CA.

Lots of folks out camping.

We had a mini rally

Last weekend we had a mini rally while I was camping. That's our AS in the foreground and a 25' 2005 in the background. They just happened to get a spot behind us at the beach. The owner came over and checked ours out because his wife had been talking about getting a longer AS.

Airstream Towing Airstream

We pulled into a campground in Clinton, Mississippi (just west of Jackson) earlier this evening and are in a campsite next to another Airstream. This unit appears to be a very late model 30 footer, and the tow vehicle is an Airstream Classa B. This pair has Texas tags.

We saw 40 airstreams this past weekend at the Spirit of Cleveland rally in downtown Cleveland. The weather was perfect and a great time was had by all!

Saw 5 headed west on 90 west of Cleveland on Sunday. Almost caught up to one near Pa/Ny border headed east on 90 that may have been towed by a truck with truck camper. We had to turn off before catching up to it.
