Not an Airstream, but cool to spot-
I met a Travco motor home heading south on MS Hwy 7 in Grenada or Yalobusha County yesterday.
It had a hearty V8 thump. I am guessing a Mopar big block by the sound. Although manufactured from 1965 till the 80's, the engines ranged from a modified 318 to a 413 to a 440 with a Chrysler Torquedlire 727 transmission.
It had an aerodynamic fiberglass body and just looked really cool.

Lots of Airstreams down the 101, including a impromptu "gathering" of three of us at a road side viewpoint in southern Oregon.

Good view from a NBCSN television helicopter showing the Airstreams circled up in the infield at Pocono.

Nice looking newer Airstream, about 25'? at Flamboro Valley on Saturday. Didn't see a vehicle but it had moved on Sunday before we had a chance to say hello.

A Project underway!

Visited a storage lot in Longmont, Colorado, yesterday, and spied a newly arrived trailer. It's an International Overlander. It has a ghost image of the painted-on name and city of some Prior Owners.

The interior is gutted except for some upper cabinets. The wheels and tires look pretty new, and she sits kind of high, so there may be new axles underneath. I take that as a good sign that a complete build-out of the interior will be coming. I hope so....about three rows down is a sad little Pacer that is languishing away....I don't think the Pacer has been moved or given any attention in three years.

Airstream sightings

Good weekend for spotting airstreams

one at Watkins Glen in the campground near turn 6

Today - one pulled up behind us at the peace bridge crossing back in to Canada and we waved at each other!

Dropped the trailer off at Dependable RV Service in Madison, MS to get the a/c fixed.
There were 2 ancient Airstreams there on the storage lot with current tags.
There was a 16' or 19' from the 60's and a 25' or 27' from the 70's.

Saw 3 yesterday pulling across Nevada on Hwy 50. One was an older larger trailer with WBCCI number 17 on it heading east.
