Airstreams in Michigan's Upper Peninsula

I saw a bonanza of Airstreams Saturday on Michigan's Upper Peninsula. As we were crossing the Mackinac Bridge we saw one coming from the UP. We then saw another on Highway 2 just west of the bridge. We then stopped at Suzy's Pastie Shoppe just a mile or so west of the bridge and saw this Airstream.



We proceeded on to Grand Marais, MI on Lake Superior just east of the Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore. We camped at the municipal Woodland Hills Campground in town. There were two more Airstreams there. Walking around town we saw this Base Camp.

This morning I spotted a triple axle heading east into Jackson MS on I-20. In the spring I see more headed west and in the fall they all seem to reverse the route, the opposite of my expectations.

We saw a triple axle last weekend on Hwy 76 in the Wylie, Texas (north-east of Dallas) area. We were eating at the new Mexican restaurant just out of town and I saw it go by through the front windows of the restaurant.

BTW, that Mexican restaurant was quite nice! I think they are called Miguelas. They have a camel, a goat, three deer, a black and a white swan, and ducks and geese in a big enclosure next to the restaurant. It was neat watching them while we ate.

Sept 9, 2007 Bartlesville, Oklahoma seen a 1979 A/S for sale looked real nice $7,500.00. When we were looking at it a Bambi was going North on HIWY 75 toward Kansas. Had a piece of plywood for the front window or maybe that was their rock guard??????? If anyone is interested in the 1979 I have the phone number.

Thumbs up 2 vintage Airstreams

Yesterday I saw 2 Vintage Airstreams (20 to 23') heading on I-85 south about an hour outside of Atlanta. They were both on a flat bed truck trailer. Strange they even looked graceful perched up on a plain steel trailer.

Anyway looked like both trailers were in very nice shape.

I saw several driving the highway from Kenai to Fairbanks last month. I had one next to me all the way through Anchorage until they got stuck behind a van that wouldn't start. That was pretty cool. Most Airstreamers were waving when they passed. Thay was pretty cool. Welcome to Alaska if you were driving through.

I think the British Columbia Unit had a Caravan to Alaska and the Yukon this summer, so perhaps it was them that you saw!

I hope no one saw us. We ran into rain on our first day out. I'm also not one to do much washing on the road, unless I am shamed into it.

I handle shame at cocktail hour. Shame passes by.

Saturday - what looked to be a 30' seventies being pulled by a blue van heading south through the US customs at Peace Arch crossing (Blaine, WA). Tried to get a picture but the folks in the van beside us kept pacing to get pictures of our Airstream/car combo. Oh well.

At Ferndale caught a glimpse of a Bambi on the overpass for I5 heading east on Saturday morning as well.

Near Anacortes, WA saw two rigs in a storage yard - one looked close to new, the other mid sixties.

We did not see any actually camping.
