WE were returning from our trip to Yosemite on 395 in CA. We were heading North and Flashing lights coming the other direction was a vintage Airstream. I got a wave off before they passed us. It was on Tuesday the 26th. A second Hi to who ever it was.

This happened mid-summer but... heading North on 101, middle of Eureka, I saw a perfectly shiny vintage beauty. The license plate was CA (I think) and said, "LILTSTR" (or close to it - Little toaster)

Anyone know who it was? I honked or yelled something (embarassed the kids) and definately could of wrecked just trying to catch-up!

Another "sighting"

While doing our laundry at Housekeeping in Yosemite... parked next to us was this pickup.... the trailer wasn't there, it was at another location in the park. (you might have to click on the photo to enlarge...)
{I am not advertising... am I committing a "sin" here?}

Spoke with the folks and they were very nice!

That is one nice herd. I'd have those beauties behind a chain link & barb wire fence too. Coeur d Alene is in the pan handle of northern Idaho.

Malibu...Two in One Day!

Wow! I was taking some out of state guests around on the you know, Grand Tour? We were driving up Pacific Coast Highway thru Malibu and saw an Airstream Motor Home...parked in the parking lot of a (boo hiss...Motel...) just a few feet from the intersection of Taconga Canyon Rd. Then just up the road a bit, we turned into the parking lot of Paradise Cove and there...right by the gate was a real Vintage Beauty...about 17 or 18 ft, seemed to be well established if not permanently parked by the entrance....I really missed my camera that day!

I agree, I am missing the camera phone I used to have that I broke.

It's come to the kids and I playing "The Airstream Game" during long drives with points for every Airstream spotted and yelled out. Our game is: Airstream (SOB's count as long as they're silver) 1 point, vintage Airstream 2 points, POLISHED vintage Airstream, five points. Someone else in the car has to witness the sighting. There have been some heated arguments and we've turned around once to re-witness and settle the issue. I'm raising a family of Airstream nutcases, I'm proud to say.

This week end we saw a nice Excella headed sougth on I-75 just south of the TN/GA border. Also, we camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee and the camp ground host had a 34' Excella. They had tags from Alabama. They weren't there so I didn't get a chance to meet them.

That's pretty funny - my family is doing the same thing, but instead of points my daughter decided it's one kiss per sighting. We got as high as 13! My 14 y/o son, however, wants no part of the game - maybe I'll have to use your point system.

Maybe this counts: my daughter, in looking through our millions of catalogs, had an airstream sighting - Gardener's Supply Company (www.gardeners.com) A "vintage camper" toad house - definately a must have for the NUT in your house!

Sequoiacoast,

That "Road Toad" toad house is too much! I definitely think it should be counted as an Airstream sighting! Kudos to your daughter! Way to go!
