During our trip to Osoyoos, BC, Canada June 21 - not one while traveling there which was disappointing - come on people, get those trailers out on the road eh? Friends saw a 30+ rig in tow in Osoyoos on June 23 or 24. A 19' Bambi, new, showed up in the Nk'Mip campground mid week and was still there when we departed on the 28th. Fellow named Ken Smith from Coquitlam I believe owns it and was kind enough to stop past and say hello. I suggested he consider a look at the Airforums so hopefully we will see him on line soon. On the 28th on our way home (west) we saw a 26-28' rig heading east just before Hope. Looked to be later seventies or early eighties, in very nice shape. It was past too quickly to get any detail but we did not see any numbers on it. That was it for Airstreams. Did see an Avion, larger unit, in a yard just east of Princeton that looked to be in very nice shape and had a fellow stop past our campsite who has restored an Alumacoach of 50's vintage that he tows with a similar vintage car. He did not have either with him. I believe he said he was from Penticton area.

I guess next week we shall see a swack of vintage units as there is a Vintage run 10 minutes from our house at Hazelmere. Sadly, we will be towing right past it as this is also a conflicting weekend for us with my wife's birthday happening and our car club "helps" her celebrate it at a rod run/camp out in Ferndale, WA just south of us 30 minutes. Dang!

While attending my Dad's memorial service in late June in Santa Ynez, CA (it's OK - with me NOT HIM - he was 85 and passed peacefully in his sleep at home) we followed a 2004 Bambi into a grocery store parking lot and spoke to the nice couple who owned it (Monday 6/25). They are from Laguna Beach and belong to the El Camino Real group of the WBICC. they gave us a tour and were very friendly. They did not know of the AIRFORUMS and I gave them the info so hopefully they will be signing up. Airstreamers are great! Also saw on Friday 6/22 around 8:15AM what looked to be a 22' to 25' vintage unit heading south on the 101 out of Santa Barbara. Didn't have any numbers on the back.

Passed by a late model Safari (I think) being pulled by a white Ford Explorer Saturday afternoon near Walnut Grove, Ga, on State Hwy 81. Anybody we know?

On Saturday July 14th I drove from Cincinnati to the south side of Cleveland. I saw 3 airstreams and an argosy. One trailer was newer and the rest were in the 70's.

Just as we were returning from our Ferndale, WA gathering on July 8th we spied two Airstreams heading south, just into the US from the Vintage gathering at Hazelmere RV Park in the lower corner of BC. We got waves going both ways but I'm too slow with hauling out the CB and then finding channel 14 to say hello.

Those two units sure did look impressive going down the highway (I-5).

I saw two Airstreams at San Clemente State Beach (hook-ups area) on July 11th. Didn't get a close look at one, but I saw a blue stripe and the other looked to be a Safari FB w/ a white truck TV. We had been enjoying time with friends and our Airstream at San Clemente for about 5 days. Traveling from Long Beach to Hetch Hetchy/Yosemite Friday and Saturday! A week in the woods and my Airstream, it just doesn't get better than that!

Monday 07/16 Rt. 28 near Indian Lake, NY. We passed in opposite dirctions flashing headlights and waving. Anybody on this forum?

Also passed another in opposite directions today (Wednesday 07/18) on NY Rt. 30 near Long Lake. Flashed my lights but didn't get a response.

Both times I was concentrating, Monday because of winding roads and today because of rain slick roads. Consequently I didn't get any pertinent information such as plate/state or tow vehicle.

Ca 99

July 29th, my two happy camper daughters spotted an AS (they say a Bambi) traveling South on the 99, just outside Tulare. That was our only on the highway sighting as we traveled with our Safari up to Yosemite and back. Did wave to a Silver Streak heading North up the Grapevine though.

Vintage Airstream north of Mojave, CA

On Sunday, July 29, we spotted a Vintage Airstream trailer with old California plates (DF 4155 I think) going south on 14 north of Mojave......as I approached from behind, a SOB lost it's awning after it passed the AS......I hit an awning arm but missed the biggest piece....don't think the Vintage Airstream got damaged....moral of this story is that when you see an awning flapping stay far behind because it will soon come off.....

We also saw an AS parked in the Oh campground in June Lake on July 28....no one was around....we saw a couple going up and down CA 395 during this time......pj

Saw 2 29-34' units about 5 miles apart headed west on I-20 this afternoon towards Vicksburg. One TV had an 'Antiques' sign on the door. A whole scad of SOB's on the same route. Did I miss the party or am I just Late?
