This is a bit better. It's a small part cropped from a large image, so I think that's a big as it gets. The trailer was pulling out of one of the Enroute service centres and I just grabbed the camera and started shooting. The picture was taken at 5:08 pm on Aug. 15 if that helps.

Yes, that's us. We'd stopped for an urgent comfort break and were only twenty Kms short of our destination. It's nice to see us "on the move". Thanks for blowing that up

We were into a wicked head wind all day that made the drive a little less pleasant than usual and, of course, screwed the gas mileage in a big way.

Today we start the process/task of dismantlement in preparation for an EARLY departure tomorrow morning. Cow & I have been here 3 weeks. Aside from the continuous sorting, streamlining & keep/donate/toss out chores, it's been fun. This resort is nice & it rates a strong 7 on my friendliness scale (of 1-10). We didn't participate in a lot of the campground activities that I had hoped we would, but that's no one's fault but our own. And DON'TCHYAKNOW... as we're rolling out of the front gate yesterday to spend the day in Huntsville, another Airstream was rolling in!! I lowered the window & gave 'em a proper "Howdy" but it was too late/dark to do any socializing by the time we returned from Huntsville & finished walkin' the Pups. They parked relatively near us, so perhaps we'll get to visit w/them at some point today.

Hour north of KCI. Belongs to a VW acquaintance of mine, don't know what price he has on it. I was thinking he said it was a 1983 but not for sure. Just shot some photos in case somebody would be interested.

From Nova Scotia, Canada

While Campground Host at Kejimikujik National Park in Nova Scotia, we saw a 1999 Safari Caravanner in with a Toyota Tacoma, and on the way home we met an vintage Airstream...too quick to get a good look...but did get our first Airstream Salute!! Heres a photo from our week there.

Met a black SUV with bikes on top and a tandem Airstream travelling eastbound, just west of Field, BC, on Sat. 18th, @ 16:40. This is the same day of accident in Rogers Pass with the 5 hr shutdown of traffic through that Pass. I have you on my DVR!!!!!

We are in Grand Marais, MN and have seen about 20 Airstreams with the oldest being a 1957. It's so great to see so many silver bullets!

We were in Maine this week and took a day trip up to Orr's Island as ZoominC6 had recommended it. On the way there (on Rte 24) saw an Excella being pulled by a red truck (Ford?). Then got a quick glimpse of Zoomin's rig and one in a site across from his but didn't want them to think we were stalkers so we didn't introduce ourselves :-)

For such a remote area, I was surprised to see 3 other Airstreams!!

Sorry no pics...
