A recent picture of Dale wearing Wally's jacket. He is getting a 4CU hug from my better half. Taken at the Dead Horse 2 rally this past February.

You know the law. Use a pun and you go to prison.

Would you please post some pics of the helmets?

I just watched it. Awesome job, everybody! Sorry it looks like any interview with Fred got cut. Of course they could have done the whole hour on this topic and I would have been happy

Shari, you totally rocked dating that trailer by it's 7 panel endcap - you are queen trailer geek!

I learned most everything I know from Fred! He must be the "king trailer geek" or the "grand poo-baa trailer geek"!!!

It was a shame his bit was cut...I'm sure he did a terrific job too - just too much info in a very short segment. They had us all do several different parts not knowing how it was going to splice all together ~ heck they were here 2-1/2 days - not to mention the time in CA and at the museum.

Shari you were great! Too bad about Fred piece being cut. At least his trailer did make it on the show.

What was the location for the interview with Dale and who's trailer were they following down the road at the end of the segment?

The location was Sloans lake (a couple of blocks from my house) on the border of Denver & Edgewater. It was on the east side of the lake looking west...and it was a beautiful spring day! I felt so sorry for Dale in the wool coat...it was HOT for March ~

Both the trailer in the background at the lake and being followed by the cameraman was Fred's '64 GlobeTrotter.

I am afflicted with living on the east coast. The show did not come on until 10 and yes, I fell asleep around 9:30. Will it be airing again or did anyone DVR it? I was looking forward to seeing the show. This always happens when my wife asks me to come and watch TV with her in bed... If anyone has the show taped, please let me know. I am well rested today, but did not get to see it.

You can purchase a DVD and a companion book of the show directly from PBS.

How could I do that if this is the fourth of a series? Would I not have to wait until they all air, and then air again before it would be offered?

I know someone out there turned on the DVR and they could probably lend me a copy to watch.

Hey Stef:

Shari looked great on the Big Screen . . . I think I see a new career on the shiny horizon. As for me, well, they shot me from my best angle . . . my trailer's butt!

It was a great experience to be behind the scenes, watching them tape numerous segments many times over. I had no idea what the final product would look like, but PBS Oregon and Lion did a superb job in telling the story of Wally's dream - bringing the world's people together thru traveling aluminum. The inter-lacing of old movies clips and vintage photos into the story was beautifully done, and we have Dale to thank for providing most of those historic materials. It was a pure delight to finally meet Toni Ruiz in Denver for the filming - she's a hoot! It was fun being on the factory floor as the sausage was being made, and now I can really appreciate the packaged view from the counter. Kudos to Shari, Dale and Toni for making Airstream History come alive and exposing our cult to viewers worldwide.

And of course I was excited to see them do Shari's interview in Maxwell - I was all 'look look, I've been in that trailer!'

It was all very cool. I was a little surprised they managed to do the whole story without one mention of the WBCCI or the fact that Wallys vision is still alive as people continue to gather together and use their Airstreams for caravans, some more adventurous than others.

When the interview was being taped in Maxwell, I was thinking the same thing. I've been in that trailer too.
