Thanks for adding me
August of last year, we purchased a 1964 Land Yacht 24' Air Stream. It is basically complete, all equipment is functional. We are beginning to put our own little touches to the inside to "make it ours". Husband, Arkie and I(Carla) live in Sullivan, MO. Looking forward to Vintage Camping this spring. We also have other vintage campers that are not Air Streams which we take camping also. Looking forward to having a place to reference for advice and suggestions as we work on our Air Stream.

P S Noticed I selected Tradewind in profile but our airstream is a Land Yacht.

I don't have very many pictures at this time but will share as we start our work on the inside. Can I attach the pictures by using the attachment icon above, or do I need to post them in a different area?
Have you heard of Midwest Glampers? It is a group of ladies that camp together from Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, and I probably missed someone. They have a large group getting together at Smithville Lake the first weekend of May. You have to be a member to attend but if you search on Facebook for Midwest Glampers, put in a request to join if interested. We have a lot of fun. Thanks for reaching out to me ..hope to meet you this spring/summer. Carla

Rich and Yvonne
Appreciate you reaching out to us. I have some cousins that live in Calvert City, KY close to Paducah. Of course that is the western part of your state. Never been through the central part. Never know, we may be coming your way this coming season. Right now we have ice so ready for it to warm up soon!
Have a great New Year :)
Carla and Arkie
