It's a common mistake. You'd be surprised how much "girl talk" I get into on my Disney forum because of it.

And you'd be surprised how often this Mickey gets in the dog house! My Minnie has quiet a temper. I've started calling her "Princess Diva". She has a good sence of humor and thinks it's a hoot when I do. Smooth things out alot of the time ...alot of the time it doesn't, though.

sightings

Just drove from Montana to Texas this weekend (to retrieve a car for my daughter) and to my surprise saw a late model 25' in a roadside campground in southern WY, an older 34' going West on 287 in the TX panhandle and a brand spanking new 28', perhaps SO, in a gas station near Amarillo...whew, three sightings in one trip!

On route 260 between Woods Canyon Lake and Payson, AZ, spotted a newer unit headed east. We blinked and waved!

Is it just me?

Hello all -

See the big Aluminum tubes all the time on I40 going into/ out of ALBQ all the time.... That being said I have only been acknowledged twice out of about 50 or sightings.

I usually flash the lights and wave when even with the TV. Most everyone is oblivious of me and my aluminum 'thing'....Did they even see me?!

This also applies to when I am pulling SilverToy. The other folks either aren't looking or don't seem to care. This was especially puzzling when we were on I10 headed into AZ from NM and saw 3 units pulling together and none seemed to look up from the road ahead. Odd.

How is that you folks 'signal' to other AS's?? Do you 'signal' differently when your AS isn't on the bumper??

Axel

I'm betting they either don't know if you're an Airstream fan or just aren't paying attention. We need a special hand signal or something to become a standard greeting for other Airstreamers going by, so they don't think we're just telling them their lights are on! Maybe a little Airstream antenna ball!!

Some time ago it was proposed that we flash our lights twice and wave. I have tried this with no results, too. However, back in the day, flashing your lights twice was a signal to slow down because: 1) there is an accident ahead or some other road hazard that required it; or 2) there is a law enforcement officer ahead with a speed detection device in use, i.e. a speed trap ahead.

These Airstreamers may have misunderstood your intentions and just slowed down to wander five miles down the road...for what?

I'm guilty. Traveling on these lumpy, under construction and terrifying Florida highways, esp. I-4, I'm too scared to take my eyes off my own lane to see other Airstreams. More than once my wife has exclaimed "Did you see that?!?!" and of course I didn't. She saw three AS on I-75 as we headed to Gainesville last weekend - I saw one of them.

My wife never sees them until I point them out to her. I seem to have no problem spotting them on the opposite side of I-75. When we go to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at the end of October we will probably see 4-6 on the way back as they head south to Florida for the winter. We will probably see several headed south on our way back from Disney World over New Year's Week End headed down for the remainder of the winter. Seems like those are popular times of the year for folks to head down to Florida for the winter.

Alumatube MH

Spotted today going North on I 5 in the San Fernando Valley in Ca.

An alumatube type MH. I didn't say Airstream cause maybe it was an Argosy as it seemed to be painted a light metalic gray with a burgandy waist band stripe. Very sharp condition and clearly owned by someone who loves it.

Double Sighting!!

I saw this in a lot right across the street from the storage area that inspired this thread. Went inside and asked, the owner is going to restore it someday. He told me about a polishing job going on nearby, so I swung by and caught a picture of that too!!

Someone must know who I saw Tuesday 09/26 in East Tenneesee...Interstate 81 Eastbound..I believe it must have been a 34 footer, but the first Airstream I've ever seen with a set of three vista views in a row (on the road side), and a wrap around (Argossy style) REAR window. VERY COOL... How many of these exist? Is it rare, or do I just not get out enough?
Thanks
Kevin
