First one was on I-40 arouind exit 320 heading west.. Looked like a 32 footer older 80's land yacht. Popup up around a corner and not able to get camera out..
this was sat morning aound 10:30.. we were heading to wilmington to condo at carolina beach for the weekend..


second one was heading east on I-40 sunday afternoon.. looked like a 23 ft newer model. popped up around corner and not able to get camera out.. we were heading back to raleigh.

now if you want sob pictures that is no problem.. i saw at least 5+ each way..

AS are so rare you have to be ready all the time cause in case, just when you relax here one goes by.. dam.....


2 in one weekend .. is that a record.. guess i need to see a caravan and be really impressed..

Saw at least 15 today. Most of which were at Out of Doors Mart, but I did see one other heading west on I-40. Being the only one in the truck I opted to not to climb into the back seat for the camera. I believe the wally numbers were 1508. But it was a quick look.

It was great to stop in and visit with Ben, Mark and the gang at ODM. I even picked up a few things.

Saw two Airstream2Go trailers on the 210 near Pasadena CA today around noon heading East - complete with stickers on the side. The lead looked like a 28' International with a Bambi behind it. Sorry, didn't have time to take a picture. Didn't look like they were on a camping trip. Probably staff hauling them to their Los Angeles office in San Gabriel.

Last week we spent 4 nights and 5 days at Bend/Sisters Garden RV park. Each day we would jump in the TV and explore the region. While driving to and from this RV Park, and during our day trips we saw a total of 15 other AS. 2 where in the same RV park, and about 1/2 of the remaining sightings were those parked next to a garage or a barn, and they all looked like they were ready to be hooked up to and hit the road, none were just rotting in place.

No, but because of water leaks some were rotting as they go down the road. Could not help myself, jim
