Good morning from SE Ohio

Hello fellow campers,

My wife and I have been handed down a 28 foot 1978 Airstream Ambassador from her parents. I was shocked when Neil (father-in-law) said it was ours! It has had very little use in the last 10 years and no use for the last 5. We have been camping in a pop-up for the last 3 years so this will be quite an adjustment for us. My wife has been busy cleaning the inside and I have been checking out operations of the various systems. We hope to have it ready to trial in a week or two. Can't wait to get on the road and enjoy it with our 2 dogs.

Look forward to trading information on the forums,

Dave and Anita

Welcome Dave and Anita,

Congratulations on the Argosy.

Keep us updated on your adventures.
