camped next to my first sighting!

Hey, I wrote before about seeing a newer AS at ArlingtonRV in RI recently, being hitched up to a Hummer. I was so surprised when we pulled up to our spot at Fisherman's Memorial (also RI) and found out he was our next door neighbor (Hi Tommy!). That was cool. We had a beautiful spot right on the ocean fed lake and absolutely beautiful weather, I did NOT want to come home!

On the way out this morning we spotted another AS that had arrived at the park. Wish we had time to stop and say hi, but they had visitors (no surprise!) and we had an appointment to keep. We did wave enthusiastically though

Saw a smaller Argosy around noon today... pulled by "something red" heading west on I-20 just west of Birmingham, AL.

I waved... got nothing in return.

Saw a tiny vintage AS, looked to be a 16-17 footer on I-20 yesterday. Was being towed by a Ford Excursion. And I thought my truck was overkill... Poor little trailer looked pretty rough. Hopefully it was being transported somewhere for restoration.

While S/B on Hwy101 yesterday, we passed a newer 25'+ A/S parked in the roadside rest north of Paso Robles, CA. Looked like a younger family.
We honked, they didn't hear us.

I-295 North in Falmouth, Maine, Northbound, about 8:13 am. A big long airstream with a blue stripe (so it's newer, but I don't know how new) and two axles. Didn't get a chance to notice the tow vehicle. Didn't see any numbers on the back, but I _was_ paying attention to the southbound traffic, as that is the direction I was traveling.

Doesn't match the picture in his profile, as the 2005 Safari in his pic is lacking the blue stripe I saw.

Unless they got another one

A little slow in posting, but saw what i would guess as a 30'+ in the state park weekend before last...

Saw the folks walking across into another campsite and didn't want to intrude - but still always enjoy seeing others in the same park!

With most of the south-central RV's headed toward Talledega this weekend it was a matter of time 'till I spotted a 'stream.
Late '60's tradewind BLEW by me yesterday on I-20 east bound, I think he was trying to pass lapped traffic

Some kind of Airstream

We saw an Airstream going north on Range Line in Joplin, Misssouri yesterday, it was painted on the sides in some kind of colorfu l design. I didn't get a really close look at it, it was going pretty fast. All I could make out was the word "Experience" on the streetside near the front.

I35 in Texas

Yesterday on southbound I35 south of Temple I passed what looked like an early 70s Overlander being towed behind a black Suburban. Nice looking rig.
