Bevman,

You will find several Flying Clouds from the El Camino Real Unit in the VAC section at Bozeman.

Barry,

Sorry to hear that, I was looking forward to meeting you. Are you certain?

Bill,

Heavy disappointment on our part. I've got a treatment in June and I have a lot of difficulty with travel for up to a month afterwords. I need to be within easy striking distance of a medical facility if it's needed. It is disappointing in that we miss an opportunity to meet the folks like yourself who are able to make the trek.

Donna's busy trying to come up with an alternate camping plan where we can get away for a week that's in the Province for health care coverage yet still "away" enough that it feels like a holiday. I'll be watching for pictures from those who attend.

My goal is by next year I'll be out and about and able to get to a number of events along the West Coast and some of the 4CU events as well.

Take care,
Barry

Gosh David, it would seem to me like there would be 2 guilty parties here. Good for you guys. Who knows, this could be a July 4th baby to share birth dates with Wally. Maybe don't share this with your wife, though, or she'll figure you planned this all along and are carrying this whole Airstream thing a bit too far. And particularly when you are choosing names - she'll be watching for anything with an A, W or B in it that could in any way be related to Airstream, Wally or Byam....

However, remember, early on the morning of the 4th, to get her out with the cloth while you are saying wax on, wax off, dear, and you aren't holding that Cyclo quite right...........

We will be watching our email with keen interest the first week of July.

Congratulations,
Barry

My 58, early in the series (vin 8417), is a California-built 7 end panel. The timeline in the back of Banham's "Wanderlust" says that 57 was the "start" of the 7 panels. I'm not certain if California and Ohio were on the same changeover timeline.

Thanks for your response, I had heard that 57 was the change over year and that a few 57's were built with 13 panels, from your response sounds like if I want to go for a 13 panel model I may need to look for 56 or earlier

jim,

that is my understanding as well. 57 was the crossover year. my 56 has the 13 panels and the california whale tail. it's cool knowing i have a cool trailer even if it still sits in pieces in my backyard
