I have to say that my book also has a bad binding and I will be calling today to make an exchange.

I was just sitting here wondering what to do about my copy. I was reading it while waiting for my computer to reboot and realized that it was coming apart.

I bought mine at the International and it has deteriorated every time I have picked it up since. The only thing holding it together are the blue sheets inside each cover.

Rich people invest in stocks. Rednecks invest in commemorative plates. Right over here are the "heros of Nascar" series....

You know, people of all income levels collect all kinds of things. I,m sure there are people with realitive low incomes who invest in stocks and by the looks of the motor homes at Nasar races, some wealthy people seem to like it.Taste isn't defined by your education , income level or what you collect.

Yep, Mine Too

Bummer. I'll be contacting Airstream for a replacement copy.

I need to hang on to the copy I have until after the Region One Rally next week as I want to show some of the attendees their pictures that have been published in the book. I wanted them to sign their photos too, oh well.

Just got an email from Airstream.
Airstream Store only ships to US Adresses...
Very global thinking...

So we can only dream of the book until we get an airplane ticket to pick it up in the US...

damn...

I'm sure someone on the forum ( myself included) would purchase the book for you and mail it to you. Just send the necessary funds. I can take my copy to the post office to get aprice on trhe shipping.

i think the bad bindings are what may be holding up availability.

I too, ordered mine as soon as I got the Airstream newsletter announcing its release. I knew they'd go fast. I debated whether to get the $99 one, but settled on the 'regular' one. Airstream didn't mention the extra goodies that come with that one - besides the aluminum sleeve - otherwise, I'd have sprung for it. I just found out a few days ago. Maybe we can get the CD separately?

Anyway, about this binding business
Is there anyway to tell if one has one that is going to fall apart, or is it all the first editions that are prone to it?

From a collector's standpoint, one could assume that these will end up more collectable, providing you can keep them together. Maybe I'll spring for an Aluminum clad one, and put the other one away.

Would it be wrong of us to point out inconsistencies? On page 137 it says the picture was taken in Ohio. Funny, it looks identical to the proving grounds between Needles, CA and Kingman, AZ - definitely desert.

Something that fascinated me was how many times coach #83 turned up in the caravan pictures. That trailer must have circumnavigated the globe at least twice!

If anyone has already started a thread on this kind of thing somewhere else, let me know. I'd like to see what others have noticed, 'between the lines'!

I emailed the Airstream Online store about my problem with the binding failing on my Wanderlust book and received a return email in less than an hour. They are sending UPS to pick it up and will send out a replacemnet as soon as they receive my defective book.

This is great customer service, so I just purchased two more copies of the book for Christmas gifts.

On its way back

UPS just now picked mine up. It hadn't come totally apart, but it was well on its way. For the price, the book shouldn't feel like it will fall apart every time you pick it up. The only thing holding it together were the blue sheets inside the hardcovers and they were slowly tearing away from the covers.
