They Saw us First!!

On December 31st, 2006 we were headed westbound on 71. 25 miles west of Austin, Texas we noticed some flashing headlights. It was then that we saw #5949 going eastbound. We flashed our lights and waved as we meet with smiles. They had another airstream behind them but it did not have any numbers. We spend New Year's at a friend's cabin on Lake Buchanan.

This morning we dropped our '68 tradewind off at the repair place for some electrical fix-ups- and had to remove the skylights for the trip. At 10pm we noticed what could be some nasty fog, or rain- who knows up here... I immediately remembered my girl was sitting topless in a foreign yard! So we loaded the truck with a ladder, skylights, and towels and went to make her decent. That was successful (=no cops), and as a bonus, parked next to her was a newish bambi with a poor little dent in her hindquarters! >>license plate: CA - 'lil zep'

ANYONE???

We were on I-75 heading north yesterday between 1 & 3. We have a 1977 31' Sovereign pulled by a 2002 White Avalanche. Was that us in the not so good condition?

The one I saw was in the south bound side of I-75. I believe it was being towed by a silver Chevy truck with a cover over the bed or a lot of "stuff" in the bed. I noticed a pretty large dent in the road side front corner.

Look forward to meeting you and your wife at the Florida Can Opener this weekend.

We almost fit the bill except we were heading north. We do have 2 scooters in the truck bed. We are 15 minutes from Topsail how exciting! We look forward to meeting you too. Laura

YouTube - Airstream Crash on Highway
I'm not sure, but I think we saw this accident too. We were returning from Disney World on November 12, 2006 and saw the upside down Airstream on northbound I-95 just south of the FL-528 interchange. By the time we went by traveling southbound, they had righted the truck and pushed the trailer, now upside down, off the highway onto the shoulder so they could restore one lane of traffic. It looked like a long trailer, 30 foot or more, and had a blue stripe on the side. There was nothing in our local papers in the days afterwards.

Eyeballed an Airstream trailer and TV heading south on I-75 just north of Dalton GA on December 27, 2006 around 6:00 p.m. Traffic was jammed and we were exiting to follow a Garmin provided detour (that worked very well) when we saw the Airstream just past the exit stopped in the right lane with everyone else.

We were on the way back to Austin on Highway 71. We saw a parked Airstream just west of the Pedernales River. It was #1489 and it is not listed in our 2006 Membership Directory.

Here are two that we spotted over New Years in Malibu. Notice the pink flamingos. Never did see their people. There was also an Excella but somehow I missed getting a picture of it.

A/S in Biloxi, Ms

Seen these in Biloxi, Ms during our work there in November 06. The one at the Salvation Army site had been converted into an office. FWIW it was not owned by the Salvation Army.
Best,
