Let's Keep it Aloha

I'm noticing a lot of unkindness creeping in here - it seems to be increasing since I joined the forum three years ago. I don't know if it's a reflection of the general devolution of kindness and consideration in our culture as a whole or maybe folks are especially edgy right now with the political process underway in the U.S. or other current events. An unsettling environment right now.

I've just returned from two Oregon Unit Airstream rallies and there was consistent congeniality and good fellowship toward one another, a characteristic that I find to be consistent in the Airstream community outside of this forum. I can't count how many times my wife and I had drinks with new friends that we met just because we both had Airstreams.

Let's be as friendly to each other here as we are in person. Let's maintain a helpful environment that is even willing to answer questions that have been asked dozens of times before. Might be a good idea for the old-timers to just go ahead and skip threads they find boring. I imagine a lot of folks are reluctant to post because they're concerned that they will appear stupid. After all, we were all newbies once - I don't think anyone was born with innate knowledge of Airstreaming.

Play nice, think of what we're saying, don't push our views to hard, dont be unnesessarily harsh, no name calling etc.

And remember teasing online can be hit and miss sometimes.

Seems were all here because of our love for Airstreams, Argosy's, Avions and Vintage Kin.

Nice title and great post! Did you see any "Be Kind, You are in Oregon" stickers on your travels?

Fun hijack, I grew up (one of the many places I have progressed through my continuing growing up) in Aloha, Oregon; but it is admittedly pronounced ah-low-a with a short a at the end

I really need to try one of our local rallies and club
