Dexter

This may have been posted already, but there's an Airstream in one of the episodes of "Dexter". It's in a junkyard and is also the scene of Dexter's...hobby....

Here's a link:

In the tv mini series - Andromeda Strain they found a baby inside an Airstream that had survived the "strain"- maybe is was the protective aluminum shell. It looked to be a 70's era 26-30 footer.

Headed west on Interstate 68 in western maryland we saw two newer ones caravanning together- one said Delaware along the side. Just shinning in the sun.

Heading west today on I-10 through Phoenix near the airport. Looked like a brand new 25-27 footer being towed by I think a Ford or Dodge champagne colored quad cab dually.

Monarch Pass in Colorado

Yesterday about 1:43 PM we met this beauty (looked like a 28) headed westbound toward the summit of Monarch Pass being pulled by a Hummer. Flashed lights at them and waved, but no response.

I'm curious why no response, were you towing at the time? Also, how did you get such a fast shot off while they were still driving towards you? You must have been shooting the mountains already...great scenery!

You can't kid me, you left a trail of aluminum rivets behind you, knowing the poor thing couldn't resist. For shame! I'll bet you told the wife you tried to find the owner, but it grew "attached" to you and you just couldn't resist it. "Kin we keep it? Huh? Please? can we, Please?"

Silver Streak

There's a Silver Streak parked in an empty lot for sale near our house in Tucson if anyone's interested...$1500..looks pretty rough, couldn't see in the windows. No tanks, make shift "porch light" at least 1 corner window missing. It would take a lot of work, and that's just looking at the outside. If anyone's interested let me know and I'll get you the phone number.

I80 Westbound

I saw three Airstreams going West on I-80 at the intersection of I-79 in Western Penna. approx. 9:30 am today. They appeared to be 25' pulled by Ford Expedition and 23' also pulled by Ford. Five minutes behind them was another 25' pulled by a Chevy Suburban. They looked like they where in a hurry to get where they where going!

When are you heading out Ralph? You must be getting awful anxious. Have a safe journey. It sounds like you will be traveling through some areas with recent flooding so there may be issues getting fuel along that route.

I'm going to be off line for a couple of weeks so you will be in GNP by then. I sure wish I was going to Bozeman.
