Laura and Tom,

Here's what it looks like on a chart:



The grass landing strip is the circled "R" just above the compass rose, marked FD72.

Next time we have a few days of good weather forecast, the plan is for Karen to drive down in the Flex while I fly down in the Sky Arrow. The goal is to leave the Flex there so we have myriad options to get down there and then have wheels to do camping trips in FL for the next few months.

Will definitely message you when we head down!

Early Saturday afternoon, January 24th - looked to be a much loved mid-1960's Airstream, maybe an Overlander ? - travelling east'ish on Texas Farm-to-Market highway 150. Were you headed to the Salt Lick BBQ? Nice looking rig.

Since no one's ventured a guess on the trailer my friend has...

He told me it had been made by the Spartan Aircraft Company, using the knowledge gained in manufacturing planes to make trailers. Hence the appropriateness to it being parked along an airstrip.

If you do a Google image search on "Spartan Trailer" you'll find examples that look a lot like his.

Last week we dropped off our CampLite at a friend's in Lake Placid, FL - to serve as a "home base" for the rest of the winter. He lives on a landing strip (Kingsport) so we'll have the option of flying down and starting our camping adventures from there.



Back on point, he has this on his property:











NOT an AirStream.



Anyone care to venture a guess?



Hint: it's not inappropriate for it to be living out its days adjacent to a runway!

That's a Spartanette we looked at those as well as the AS and the Spartan manor.

One more gone

On a 2013 motorcycle ride out to Terlingu I spotted this and took the picture cause it was cool.



I was riding through there again a couple weeks ago and see that this one did not fair so well.



I don't know the story.

Sad to see a REAL Airstream MOHO end its life that way.

Saw one headed East on I-10 on Monday, 9FEB, East of Houston. Had California plates. They didn't notice us waving like we were polishing an AS!

We spotted a vintage unit heading north on Maryland route 197, in Bowie, at about 5:15 p.m. this evening. The normal running lights weren't working; it had temporary lights on the bumper. We were a couple cars behind the trailer, so we never got a good look at size or tow vehicle.

Excite to see a wrapped AS on Rt 78 W on way to PA. I think it said something like Great American Tour or venture, outdoor scenes on wrap. Pretty cool.
