Ok you two, no I never would have expected this but I thank you kindly from the bottom of my heart. I was glad to have the opportunity to be able to do it. This Airstream community is made up of so many great and gracious people that pour in the benefits of their time and expertise and a friendly hand extended towards all and it is my pleasure to be a member.

Thank you and I would love a sticker! I will sport my sticker with pride.

Another great podcast Tim and the caravan planning is quite exciting. Not only will you caravanners have the adventure of a lifetime but it is your good fortune to have an experienced energetic and enthusiastic leader like Bert who will be the perfect compliment to this dream come true.

Congratulations Tim, Rob and Colin for making the big time.

Very cool Bill.

They were supposed to send me a copy of the magazine but I guess they forgot .

I did have a scan of the article sent to me already though.

I guess this means Colin and Rob can start charging for their autographs!

Lets just hope they don't have to give up their trailers for a toy hauler basecamp so they can get their heads in the trailer .
