It's easy to overlook a mistake like this. As those linked articles state, it is one of the most common errors in writing.

It is a beautiful sign, and that's why the mistake bothered me so much. Kathy et al put in so much work.

It's good that you will eventually get the sign corrected. Even though you are delighted with the craftsmanship, you paid money for this service, and deserve to have your name spelled correctly.

Anyway, enjoy your sign, your upcoming trip, and hope you catch plenty of fish!

p.s.
I've found something to occupy my time at RV parks/campsites: Misspelled sign patrol. I will make note of them, wait until the happy campers are relaxed and truly enjoying themselves, then bring it to their full attention.

Thank-you all. This has made my RV'g year!
Great idea for passing the time in campgrounds!

But, I bet that the most common response you get from the folks with the botched signs will be:

"...What?"

I have one (I'll post a picture as soon as I get my rig out of storage). I had mine made at our local "Big Fresno Fair" (every October for a week) but the vendor told me he sets his booth up at every fair in California, Nevada, and Arizona. But in 2015 you can save yourself the trip and have one made online. I'd post a link but there's a million. Just google custom wood signs and the sky's the limit (and your imagination)

I'm sure many in Kentucky are saying same. The misspelled American Pharoah just won the Kentucky Derby.

I wonder if he has a wooden sign outside his stall?

As a retired engraver / sign maker, I can assure you that nothing is as maddening as finding a misplaced or missing apostrophe except finding a letter reversal.
A 2 day job engraving the 10 rules governing the use of a sauna at a major hotel went south because rule #5 said do not throw water onto the rocks in the sanua. Proof reading your own work is futile.

I second that final statement Gearheart (as a graphic design manager)!

Interior designer here and boy if I don't live by the motto "measure twice, cut once." Mainly because even if it was technically my client's mistake....guess who end up paying for it? lol.

The illustration of the AS acts, as in a rebus, as the item possessed. That would be my after-the-fact explanation.

We upgraded to a F250, ordered 16" Michelins to be put on in August, and we're talking to Lew for full solar in December, so feel we're in line to weigh in on campground signs. Here's ours. It was done by the company mentioned in my previous post in this thread.

This forum should be called "Airstream Anoraks".

Cheers,
John

Oh Yeah

That's a good looking sign Tim & Jim. The 250 will serve you well, as will the Michelins. John has it right on the anoraks. Just don't tell jdalrymple!
Get out there and have fun!

anorak
Sad person who keeps on talking about somthing boring until the people in the conversation want to string him up.
Example: "This anorak kept on about how he saw a plane fly over his house so much."
- Urban Dictionary


p.s. You may also find a few at train stations....

A somewhat more benign definition from Wikipedia:

In British slang an anorak /ˈnərk/ is a person who has a very strong interest, perhaps obsessive, in niche subjects. This interest may be unacknowledged or not understood by the general public.

You may be interested in the following quote from my business website:

My name is John Audette – some call me the H1 Anorak.

Cheers,
John
