saw a commercial...

Saw a commercial for "K*ville", looks like a drama about New Orleans post-Katrina. Someone "making up for the past" was living in an Airstream, or had one. On FX tonight, the commercial was during "Damages".

(Wow that Glenn Close is a force to reckon with!)

Sam saw a vintage on Rt 17 Eastbound in NY yesterday. She could get more of an ID other than it was old and had flags flapping on it.

Airstreams on Illinois to Austin trip

Saw several Airstreams in side yards, one in an RV dealer's lot. Saw an older small Avion motor coach/home in an Austin neighborhood driveway. Had a sad big dent in the rear.

Passed about 4 or 5 Airstreams going the opposite direction we were ... didn't catch descriptions on all of them. One was a smaller, newer Airstream with bright stripes or logos on it -- maybe for business use.

Aug 9 - about 12:30 p.m. on Interstate 30 going east near milemarker 109 near Greenville, TX. Didn't get a chance to see any details -- other than it's cool "AS only" road profile.

Aug 14 - about 9:06 a.m. at milemarker 212 on Interstate 40 heading west near Jonesboro, AR/Arkansas State University -- about a 30 ft. Airstream with dark front windows or rock guards towed by a blue and white pickup -- maybe a Dodge.

Aug 14 - about milemarker 22 on Interstate 55 near Hayti, MO heading south, about 22 ft Airstream pulled by white GMC pickup.

We're still getting the knack of quickly jotting down the details for the sightings as we pass Airstreams.

We didn't have our AS (Emma) on this trip. She's undergoing a bathroom/rear end transformation and is looking forward to "roadworthiness" in Spring 2008.

August 12: 101 between Eureka and Garberville

We saw at least 5 Airstreams on this trip; it was awesome! But the coolest was being followed by a newer Bambi from Garberville to Eureka. I didn't see a forum sticker, but maybe>>???

vintage Bambi towing a boat

Northbound I-25 between Albuquerque and Bernalillo a vintage Bambi-- polished (but with swirlies)--being towed by a Ford F-25 Powerstroke. The Bambi was towing a small boat on a flimsy trailer that was whipping back and forth.

There were two Airstreams staying at the Capilano RV park in North Vancouver, BC. I can see the RV park on my bus commute across the Lions Gate Bridge every morning and afternoon going to and from work. They are parked right beside one another and appear to be 70's vintage. Not sure on the length, 25 feet and longer I'm guessing. On my way in to work this morning, only one remained.

Thumbs up Story Corps

We drove past this today in Cleveland at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: It's called the "Story Corps" Airstream. I looked it up and found their blog here.
