Saw a vintage Airstream, an old one, last week in Grand Teton National Park.

Tried to get a photo, but the rig passed me by. It was a beauty.

Watching a TV show on folks going to special camping retreat facilities. Varied from vintage trailers to special tents and tree house yurts. They showed an AS only facility in the CA redwoods called Autocamp. It is fitted out with special ASs constructed for glamp camping. Not your normal AS experience, but interesting to see. Pat

We need a special wave..

I saw a nice Airstream, pretty late model, being towed out past Lake Travis yesterday evening while driving my son out to dinner on the lake. Of course, I didn't have my trailer attached, and as I passed them I gave them a wave.

Naturally.. they are wondering who this idiot is that waves to everyone in truck! What's the secret signal that means "I have an Airstream too!"

Yes! There are two AS AutoCamps in CA. One at Russian River and the other in Santa Barbara. The Santa Barbara locale has four beautiful vintage AS that were lovingly restored by HofArc. Fun to see them all "bubbled" together!

Street parking in Saskatoon

The people in this neighbourhood welcomed the WBCCI members to park in their driveways or on the street. Seven took them up on the offer, two others stayed in a municipal campground, and one was still on the way, and one will meet them along the way. One unit came from Arizona and the rest are from Alberta and Saskatchewan. They are all heading up to northern Saskatchewan on our unit's first short caravan.

The campground HOST's at Chaco Canyon (Mr/Mrs Don Bevington) live in a Nat'l Park provided (older) Airstream. They dry-camp just like everyone else, but have non-potable water-pressure for the trailer.

This guy saw the Airstreams and figured there must be something left over from the happy hour! Taken by Dave Martin at Pennwood Airstream Park.

Lunch stop

Looks like this Airstreamer was grabbing a bite at a sandwich shop in the Lowe's parking lot in Tampa Saturday.
Ready for a trip, two bikes, a kayak, and an Airstream.

Saw what looked like a later model 25 footer with a red pickup heading north on Oakwood Road in Huntington Station, NY on Sunday afternoon - surprised to see it and couldn't get my phone out in time to take a picture

Bambi in Vero Beach

Saw this Bambi from Indiana near home in Vero Beach, FL today. Had a chance to say "hi" through open windows at a stop light. Sounds like he's a traveler since he said he'd been to Yosemite and was heading to the Florida Keys but the trailer is clearly quite new.

I have been passing this one in Gravenhurst Ontario off and on for a couple of years. It's been up on jack stands and/or blocks but doesn't look like it needs much for camping. Picture taken yesterday.

Then today at 11h45 I was coming home from Orillia on the highway #12 bypass when I spotted this nice AS and TV.

Airstream sightings

As we travelled through Badlands National Park today, spotted an Airstream Flying Cloud, 25' at the visitor center/lodge complex. On I 90 as we headed east in South Dakota, saw two under their own tow vehicle power, another with AS and tow on a flatbed, and three new ones on a flatbed (a single axle, a double axle, and a Basecamp), all headed west. Staying overnight at Cabellas in Mitchell, SD, and another AS is here. Walked to the nearby Wal Mart for ice as the fridge is acting up, and another is overnighting there. Nine in one day, best for a non-rally sighting.
