Airstream sightings

We were northbound on US 85 north of Lingle, WY this past Thursday, and a southbound AS met us, and returned the greeting. At Devils Tower Nat Monument CG, loop A host has a 73. He said the previous owner, who was the first owner, stored it in a barn all year, except the one week a year they went to the lake with family. The host estimated the rig had less than 1000 miles on it, and it was all original inside with everything working. Yesterday, another AS came in to the park behind us as we returned from the store, but they did not camp.

Trifecta!

Pulled into a rest stop on my way home from Letchworth State Park (WOW!) and just prior to pulling out...I was joined my two vintage Airstreamers on their way home from a rally! Great people, probably forum members but forgot to ask.
Does it get any better!

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.

That is a very cool AS get together. Really like the urban camping deal! Pat

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.
