Canoe'stream? We have enjoyed Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, river running, flyfishing, and live on the Sauk River (enters the Mississippi at St. Cloud). Susie's folks exposed us to SOB's but an Airstream is our choice for comfortable digs on streams away from home. We've been looking at used between the Rockies and Chicago. I don't have time to renovate what I have seen so far (I have learned a lot thanks to these pages and Andy!). I've gotten mighty interested in Kimili's & Silvertwinkie's purchases, so will nail down a tow vehicle here in the next couple months....

srgntpepper -- College radio stations break the mold in my opinion. I am listening to my favorite Sunday noon to 2:00PM Hillbilly Hit Parade program from San Antonio -- KSYM 90.1 FM . If you have broadband I know that this is preceded by 3 hours of original Beatles and covers -- Sundays, 9:00 to noon, central time zone. My home town comes through again!

54FlyingCloud -- Love the Scottie. We had a series of them before we got the Airedale.

Poor Royal -- Some day somebody will come up with a piratical user name. Your old name, Silver, seems like a place to start... Port Royal used to be the British navy's base on the tip of the spit protecting the harbor at Kingston, Jamaica. It was the center of anti-pirate activities and seedy at the same time. It faded after an earthquake in 1692 slid half of the town into the sea. (Source: Under the Black Flag , by David Cordingly) Map to follow:

Ah canoe'stream -

I spent many months in Quetico, Sioux Lookout and Savant lake - gotta have that canoe atop our tow vehicle

darkStar is a Grateful Dead song, there are several of us deadheads on this forum...

I want our license plate to be 'DEAD AIR', (I used to be in broadcasting), but I haven't quite talked my wife into it yet.
just starting to search!

Why I am a "flyfisher" is embodied in Robert Traver's "Testament of a Fisherman":

"I fish because I love to: because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful, and hate the environs where crowds of people are found, which are invariably ugly; because of all the television commercials, cocktail parties, and assorted social posturing I thus escape; because in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quitude and humility and endless patience; because I suspect that men are going along this way for the last time and I for one don't want to waste the trip; because mercifully there are no telephones on trout waters; because only in the woods can I find solitude without loneliness; because burbon out of an old tin cup tastes better out there; because maybe one day I will catch a mermaid; and, finally, not because I regard fishing as being so terribly important but because I suspect that so many of the other concerns of men are equally unimportant - and not nearly so much fun."

Come to think of it, much of this is also what I like about camping.

Flyfisher - that is by far my favorite Traver passage. It applies and covers many things, both important and unimportant. Once last year while I was out in the middle of a remote lake in Arizona's White Mountains, 50 or so miles from any type of town, someone's cell phone rang. I couldn't believe it. What was so important? Traver's line: "because mercifully there are no telephones on trout waters" haunted me. He would have been appauled. Come to think of it, that ringing phone put the fish off for the rest of the day

My wife, family, and I are avid Disney fans. We travel from our metro-Atlanta home to Walt Disney World from three to five times a year combining five or six days at "the World" with a three to four day visit with my parents who live about an hour and half north of Orlando. I post on a Disney forum (the Dis) under the name Minnie's Mate; I figured Mickey Mouse had already been taken. My wife post on the same forum under the name Mickey's Mate for obvious reasons. Occasionally, I have been mistaken for a Minnie on that board, but usually people get it right the second time they read it.

I thought it would be easier to keep things straight if I used the same moniker on all forums on the net.

Curious about forum user names

Several years ago when I first "chose" the screen name overlander64, it seemed natural to go with the model and year of my coach - - especially since it was the coach that sparked my interest in RVing back in 1964. Back in 1996, I hadn't even thought about the possibility of owning a second Airstream product but the Overlander will likely be with me as long as I travel (it is five years younger than I am). Recently, my father told an acquaintance that the Overlander would likely be around at least as long as my first car that resides in our garage - - a 1965 Dodge Coronet 500 convertible that I have owned for more than 30 years (purchased while I was in high school).
