Spent the weekend at Point Farms Provincial Park, East side of Lake Huron, in Ontario. We rarely see more than one other Airstream camping but this time there were five, not including our own!

There was a nicely kept 34' Classic, three older (maybe 1970s) Excellas and one new 23' FC. I'm too shy to go crashing in and ask questions (This is Canada and I am English - we're all very reserved) but it was nice to be part of a non-planned rally in Ontario :~)

We just spotted our 1st after a week on the road from GA. They were viewing Cadilac Ranch just west of Armallo as we were heading west. We got a wave but I'm not sure the size, etc.

We went to the Highland Haven Airstream rally this past weekend, and boy did we ever hit the jackpot (at least for us it was)! We didn't think to count them, but going down and back, we had to have seen at least a dozen or so on the road, that's not counting those at the rally.

We normally don't see that many and when we started seeing them it was a little like finding mushrooms in the Spring -- so exciting and once you see one, bam, there's another!

As we stopped for lunch this afternoon at a Pa. state rest area up on I 80...
we were soon greeted by the arrival of another triple axle headed west!

It too was being pulled by a nice Superduty Excursion.

We headed west as a 2 Stream caravan for about 40 miles. We said goodbye as we left the highway for a destination in Dubois for the afternoon. See you in Limestone tomorrow...

I believe we saw that same rig back into the rally field here at Pennwood yesterday afternoon in the pouring rain. We also saw an Argosy MH eastbound I80 around the 100 mile marker yesterday AM. It is really nice here (our 1st time to Pennwood). See Y'all when you get here. Sal.

California & Arizona.

Saw these and more on our recent 2 month "out west" trip.

Sometimes I was waving so hard I forgot all about trying to take a photo. The gorgeous 13 panel was at Laguna Seca near Monterrey, CA. Never caught anyone at home and I'm sure some of you can identify it.

The Classic was at an RV Park near Kingman, AZ. and belonged to two wonderful full-timers who are completely remodeling the inside. It's a 2007
.
There were manyE other sightings, including yesterday in Oklahoma when an older Excella a lot like ours passed us in the rain (waving) on I-40
.
Over 8,000 miles and no one got a photo of ole red and our Excella - but then we saw probably 10 or more, and only got photos of a very few.[ATTACH][/ATTACH]

I believe that is a 1966 19' Globetrotter. Could also be a '67, tho.
