A little more really interesting history...

Gene wins

[QUOTE=CrawfordGene;789542]Most people on roof, in shower, most attending orgy, most beer bottles in refrigerator, most dogs inside, most bears attacking, most televisions, most tequila drinkers collapsed on floor, highest flood levels (Ga. trailers ineligible), most sticks with rope attached.

And Gene got all those records on one Saturday night!
or so I heard.

Some may think I made it all up, but actually it took 2 days. Can't find the camera in all the debris.

Is this a record

557 views for the Baja Reincarnation Caravan. Does this give up the record for the most views? Maybe for a Reincarnated Caravan. What about the most views for any Caravan in the Forums past? We are looking for Boon Docking spots along of near 101 and the coast. Anyone out there have any suggestions?
Well it's time to roll up the stinky Slinky and get ready to hit the road.

Infamousocity Category

Fullist Blacktank Hall of Fame Association is slightly proud to nominate
Mandolin Dave. One inch from rim of toilet. ( no asteric )

I guess the kids ( 23 years old ) didn't believe me that the black tank was full. I think the the ladies were complying with the " If it's Yellow Rule "
I believe that tenters really prefer my bathroom over a Porta John.
Maybe there could be a Most Used Beer in an Airstream Award.

Seriously, .......Very interesting Thread.

How about most expensive Airstream?
How about most expensive Airstream Renovation ?

Frank, that's one great bees nest.
How about the strangest or largest animal ever found in an Airstream.
