So.... I Know What They Spent Their Money On

A local homeowner decides to sell the vacant lot adjoining their property.

Up goes the "For Sale" sign.

A few weeks later..."Sold!"

What is standing in their driveway today?

A gleaming new Airstream. Looks like a 28' Flying Cloud.

Dirt to aluminum.

Congratulations!

Smart neighbor. I assume they still have enough room to legally park their AS. I can easily reach it with an extension cord to keep the batteries charged and run an electric heater to prevent freezing.

(I have a wonderful neighbor that lets me store the AS beside his house, and will not let me pay him to park. They also keep an eye on it, and if I open the AS door, the noise alerts them instantly. Bestest neighbors ever!)

They must have gotten a lot of $$ for the lot as it takes one heck of a lot of those Canadian dollars to buy anything with an almost 30% exchange...... ouch!

I have a pic of the AS on the road somewhere in Texas on the AS Virtual Caravan website, but as a former paid paranoid security dude, no pics at the actual AS storage location...
