Just spotted in North Little Rock/Little Rock: A 24' Argosy moho headed south on I-30 and it exited Cantrell or somewhere close to there (downtown LR). It was from Canada with an Ontario plate of something like BBRN 931. A gentleman with a beard was driving. That must be a long trip they are on!

And Brad spotted an Argosy trailer on the move on the west side of Little Rock this morning (not exactly sure where). It's a good day for Argosys!

Happy New Year, everyone! Here's to a great 2008!

We went from L.A. to Slab City to Tucson and then to the Calif. high desert before comeing home. Happily in our 1100 mile trip we saw nine Airstreams under tow and one Classic Moho! What a treat to see so many Airstreams on the road.

On Tue, Jan 1 we were headed home on US 290 near Hempstead, TX towing our 31' Excella II, when a relatively new AS pulled by a black pickup passed us (I tow at 55 mph).
I was taken aback by the fact that he didn't give me a friendly toot as he passed. I thought Airstreamsers were more friendly than that.
The trailer license was something like KA____ and it did not have any big red WBCCI numbers on it.

I don't have any big red numbers either, but I would have waved.

He might have been transporting it and not the owner. Just a guess!

There were 2 today 1/4 mile apart, west bound I-10 near the Pass Christian exit in Mississippi. What's up - the Can Opener is the other way. Got me pumped for the road tomarrow.

There will be several headed south from Georgia tomorrow afternoon/evening. We'll be leaving about 7:00ish Eastern Time and should arrive some time after mid-night. If you are still up, drop by site 154 and I'll put you to work helping me unhitch! Just kidding, at that time of night, I'll do an express check-in (water/electric only and put down the stabilizers) and put the kids to bed. The rest can wait 'till morning.

Cool Time after Time...

Whilst educating my 9 year old on the history of 80's Top 40 hits, I spied an Airstream in the first few seconds of Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" video.

Neat stuff Lee. I love the looks of the little guy. I gotta think the vents in the back fill up with crud pretty quickly on ugly travel days. So, now that you've found all of these and will be overwhelmed with so many, you might feel the urge to share where that Clipper is with one of your northern neighbours.

Let me know and I'll zip down and pick it up.

Thanks,
Barry

Nice finds Lee -

While it's not an airstream, it would be pretty cool to refurbish into a double decker moho. If I paint it silver will I still be allowed into the rallys?




ON EDIT: Hey! I just noticed that pictures 6 and 7 are two different rigs, albeit the same model. Were all of those photos taken at the same place?

The buses look like they could go to LeMays place.

I've been checking my emails regularly for that Clipper info..........one never knows when someone is feeling magnanimous about life and willing to share....

Record number of sightings for us!

We are almost back home after 9 days on the lower Colorado River north of Parker at Buckskin Mt State Park...we are now in Picacho Peak State Park betweeb Phx and Tucosn for a few days...this was a record trip for us in terms AS sightings...we have seen a total of 23 AStreams...on the way out of Tucson 27 Dec we saw our first going east on I-10...a 25-30 foot...between Gila Bend and I-10 on 85 we saw 2 Mohos headed south (not sure of models)...both waved and flashed lights...that was fun...thought perhaps they were on thier ways to the 4CU rally at Picacho (?)...then we saw several on I-10 going east toward Quartzsite. In Quartzsite we saw a number parked in various imformal places (if you know Quartzsite you know what I mean)...then in Buckskin there was a 1960 Land Yacht all polished up (pics 1 & 2 below) from British Columbia...I chatted with the owner..he's not a forum member but had been here when he was restoring his LY...he was too busy polishing to really stop and chat... They were there our whole stay...then one day a new 17' Sport came into the park from CA...but they were only there one night and we never saw them, so they were spared being accosted by my enthusiasm. We drove up to the River Island Unit of Buckskin and found an older Bambi...then at Cattail Cove State Park and there was a 34' parked there...nobody around...again. While driving up to Lake Havasu City (without our AS in tow) we were being followed by one...Greg got a pic out the back window of the truck...we made a stop...then we saw them 2 more times...once stopped in LHCity...and again heading north out of LHCity...(pics 3 & 4 below)... We finally lost track of sighting details, but we didn't lose track of the count... On our way to Picacho today we say a vintage Land Yacht (?) going north over an overpass on which we were going south in Gila Bend...then when we got to Picacho we were tickled to find an AS here...a newer 25 or 27' in another loop... We have not talked to the owners (yet) but we are thinking maybe they are still here after the 4CU rally held here over New Year's...(?). Speaking of which, when we checked in at the ranger station the little German lady volunteer on duty told us we "just missed a bunch of Airstreams earlier this week"... that was cute. She was so pleased with herself. We told her we knew they were here and were sorry we had to miss the event...(Hope you all had fun!)

I love seeing AStreams on the road! 23! Who knows what tomorrow will bring!
