Looks like they have it all fenced in so it can't go play with the other Airstreams.

We are taking a long weekend for MLK at Gilbert Ray Campground (of the Tucson Mountain Park...Pima County operated) on the west side of the Tucson Mountains (which border the west side of Tucson)...great campground, by the way...

Anyway...we went to find the site we wanted and were headed back to the registration office to register, and as we got there, another Airstream was pulling in...and what made it more fun is that his is a 2006 19' Bambi! (Ours is a Safari SE and his is an International). We complimented each other appropriately on our respective trailers and good taste as we registered... he ended up in the same loop as us, but on the other side...people must think they are seeing double! He stopped by once we were all set up...nice guy from South Carolina... traveling solo about the US birding and seeing the sights. He's been in CA and is now meandering back to the east, taking in several SoAZ areas on the way, and headed toward Texas. We are going to recommend that he make a trip up to Bosque del Apache near Socorro, NM on his way, since he's an avid birder. We exchanged techincal stuff re our Airstreams and such...furnace issues in the recent cold spell, solar panels, betteries...you know...the usual stuff. He said he had joined a SOCal unit of the WBCCI, and had heard of the 4CU and said it sounded like an interesting bunch (we concurred)...but had not heard of the Airforums, so we gave him all the info to find us...hopefully, he'll check us out and join up. He doesn't have everyday internet connection, but stops in at libraries, etc. to do his surfing...

It was a nice start to what looks to be a very nice weekend out...

It's going to be a cold one tonight, keep warm.
The 4CU had a rally at Gilbert Ray on April Fools Day weekend last year. We enjoyed the desert setting very much. We took most of "C" loop if I remember correctly. No campfires, but we had a couple of "fire dancers" which are propane campfires.

I like the view of Kitt Peak to the west. I still need to drive up to the peak some day.

I passed Yogi Bear's Jellystone RV Park today on the way to Camping World. I spotted a 25' or so Airstream checking in.

Finally stopped for a picture. I looked it up on the internet and think the truck camper may be an Avion.

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?
Yes GP, This person has two dbl decker busses slowly dying in the yard.

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

Thanks,

What Clipper???

Thanks, Richard... yes, it was chilly...29 Friday night and 31 Saturday night...one more night to enjoy here...it is such a nice campground in a particularly beautiful desert...we had forgotten just how nice...if only they allowed ground fires it would be perfect!

We have a new Airstream friend in the Streamer from North Carolina (I mistakenly said South Carolina before)... We saw him coming across the middle of the loop this afternoon with a towel on his head...he had fallen and skinned the top of his head and needed us to look at it for him and administer first aid...he's fine...a bad scrape for sure, but nothing that will require stitches...we cleaned it up and applied some neosporin...poor guy...he felt so bad about falling... Just glad we were there to help out... Anyway, he joined us later for wine and cheese and got to know him a bit better...he's headed to Oasis RV tomorrow morning for some minor warranty work...we exchanged emails and hopefully he'll check out the forums...hope to meet up with him again somehwere down the road...

Nice weekend here...

TB

Saw an Excella on I 40 heading West with New York tags near Knoxville Tn, today. The beginning of the tag was AS------. Looked lika maybe an 80's or early 90's? Was it you? I didnt see any stickers or numbers anywhere.

Excella in Bloomington, IL

Just saw an Excella WBCCI #18253 heading west on Veteran's Parkway in Bloomington, IL. It caught us by surprise so we didn't quite see the TV. Think it was a black or dark colored truck -- of some sort. It was about 12:30 in the afternoon. So much fun to see the AS's.

Found this today in a little town called Tryon, Oklahoma. Not a bad quality paint job. I thought it was an Argosy, but after looking at it for a while, I think it's an older Airstream. Can't really tell what year it is. It's flying a rebel flag on the front.

There is an Airstream Mercedes/Sprinter in my hotel parking lot here in Port Hueneme California. I have photos but have to go out in the rain for the adaptor for my camera card and it will have to wait.

What was that about it never rains in Southern California??????
