Ditto. If I see a bike in enough time to move my left hand off the grip, I do the "low wave" but, in a pinch, I just lift my fingers off the left handle grip.

With Airstreams, it is always a raucous excitement in our vehicle when we see another Airstream. There is so much to see and do in that short time that the two vehicles are passing each other -- we are waving, we are looking to see if we recognize the occupants, we are looking at the red numbers so we can "look them up" in the directory, and we are looking to see if they see us and wave! So much to do in a mere 5 seconds of time.

You're quickly amassing a whole new VAC chapter's worth of aluminum up there! I like the way you and your buddies think, man. Hope we get to see some photos soon of you guys with the trailers and tow vehicles hooked up.

Glad you are still alive katzklaw!

I bet that motor home is the same one I saw last Friday heading down I-85 south of Atlanta heading into Alabama. Was it from N.C. (or were those S. C. plates?) I always get confused. Anyway, I saw a motor home just like that Friday about 4:15 at the Union City, GA Exit (#64) on my way home from work. It would have taken about 2 to 2-1/2 hours to get to Montgomery if it was the same. It was a nice well cared for Land Yacht.

Saw one yesterday heading East on I-40. Was being towed by a White dually. It looked like an Excella. It was behind me on the interstate. I tried to slow down so it would catch me but it never would get close enough, had it, it would have sen my Airstream sticker on the back and my Silver Threads ad on the side. I was hoping they would get off at my exit, but didnt happen. As it was passing, I noticed it had brown and blue stripes on the bottom. Any idea what it was? Looked to be 30ft.

Spotted unhitched, a Classic Limited, maroon trim late 80's 90's model?, in the parking lot of Chattanooga's Camping World yesterday from Santa Rosa County, Florida. I do hope the owners were off enjoying the Scenic City because there wasn't TV in sight.

That gives me a great idea for "remodelling" my toaster.

when I worked summers in the oil field a lot of guys used aluminum lunchboxes (I used a grocery bag) that, with a bit of tinkering, could turn into a mini-stream....just add wheels..

Just spotted: An Excella heading east on Hwy 270 between Sheridan and White Hall, Ark. (about 11:45 a.m.). It was raining lightly, and I flashed my lights and waved. Hopefully they didn't think I was telling them there was a cop ahead...

Today I spied a Moho (345) on the 210 Fwy near Tujunga, Ca.

I wonder if it was Str8stream?

Found this 1972 International (31') on a little island that comes with some waterfront property for sale on a small lake in Northern NY State. Must have moved it across the ice years ago to get it there.

Yesterday, at 5:15PM an AS was seen travelling west of FM 1093, about 25 miles west of Houston.
I was too busy driving our 1937 Packard to notice any numbers or what the tow vehicle was....
