Michelle and Leon,

Thank you for the kind words. You will love Airstreaming the world. There is absolutely nothing like it!

I will continue to add items to the SNU website. Sharing memories, letter, photographs, artifacts and more is my thank you for the many miles I traveled from 1951 on.

Pee Wee,

I hope you make Bozeman, I would like the opportunity to meet you.

This is wonderful news!

As we are still working we will only travel with the club via New England Unit Caravans for the next 10 or so years. These are great because they are 2 to 2 1/2 weeks long which is doable for worker bees like us. There is a couple is our club that had retired about 3 years ago and now they spend much of their time caravanning with the WBCCI. They are having the time of their lives and we wish we were traveling with them.

Randy,
Welcome to the forums. I too have Airstreamed my whole life, and have read both of the articles about your family. I hope we can hear more stories from you, are you planning on attending the WBCCI rally in Bozeman, MT this summer?

No Problem Randy, Ill be there for sure, you can always meet up with us somewhere and Caravan if you would like, Warning, my father can driver slow at times. Some of my First memories are in our Airstream. It is something that has always been in my life, just another part of who Iam.

My sister and I love your fathers photos. We both love the Lady at the Golden Gate Bridge and I love the Beach/Scuba Lesson one. I think Im going to break down and buy it from Airstream, because I love it so much.

Getting use to the forum..

Hi Laura, Greg, Joe, Barry, and Dale. Still learning the skills of using the forum and thanks for your patience and the kind words and wishes. Like Dale the early adventures of Airstream travel come alive whenever you back up the hitch and "Hook On". When you think how many of us participate in this great experience that is only limited by our imagination. When i step through the door, "Portal" of my trailer I find myself already planning the next adventure. I honor all of you that "get off the porch" and "plan" your next adventure. Wally was right when he said, " It is better to wear out than rust out". I am looking forward to Sarasota. I just traded in my 19' Safari for a 25' FB. What a difference! I have a few warranty issues but overall the quality seems to have improved in '08. The FB layout is wonderful and i recommend it to anyone. Again thanks for the support and look forward to meeting you, but "not on the porch" Randy

Memories

Visiting Wally at St Andrews Place. His bring home a 16mm copy of Ft Apace, with John Wayne and showing it. This was 1949, before TV. Walking down the street with him and his two dogs Skipper and Robin.

Wally pulling up with his rig on Halloween. He didn't like my costume. He told me to wait. He went out to his Airstream and came back with a burnt cork, and a bandana. Did a few folds, and ties; then did a makeover with the burnt cork. Stood back and told me you are know a pirate, go out and trick and treat.

Going through the Sierras on hiking and camping venture. Learning how to stay warm in cold weather. Being dubbed Pee Wee.

Yes these are pre-Caravan and pre-Club memories of Wally, my cousin.

Pee Wee

The picture is Christmas 1944 in Long Beach. Top step to bottom, Henry Schwamborn, my Father; Wally Byam, my cousin; James Boyce, my Uncle; Helen Byam Schwamborn, my Mother; Dale Schwamborn (a young Pee Wee); Marion Byam, Wally's first wife' and Sue Boyce (Helen's Mother; Wally's Aunt, and my Grandmother.

A great family picture from long ago.
