    Hello Sam. How are you? My name is Dragan. I'm thinking about purchasing our very first airstream for my family to enjoy. Can I ask you to help me figure out the airstream we're considering purchasing is safe and any good? My phone is 206-965-5079
    Thank you
    PS airstream Iím looking is in your neighborhood about 20 min away and I might buy it in a few hours. Iím going to check it out today. If anyone else can see this and get ahold of me please do

    actually Sam, I rarely see them offered. When they are for sale they are usually 3000 miles away

    Hey there:

    I am about to buy my first Airstream - a 25' International CCD from a woman in Portland Oregon. Woohoo!!

    I have put some earnest money down, but since I am in Dallas TX I sure could use help finding someone to inspect the Airstream for me out in Portland OR. Just don't want to purchase a lemon.

    Is that a service that you provide? Please give me a call at 214-683-5354 to discuss.

    Thanks so much for any info you could give me - sooooo excited to finally get my Airstream and head out to play in the Pacific Northwest!

    Hey Sam, I just noticed that you had sent me a message. I have not been on much due to some other obligations. Nice stripper in the the photo. I have a 12' lapstrake that I build, but I am really too big for the boat. Oh, now I see at least one hanging in the overhead. Nice work! Are you using plans, or did you design yourself?

    We go by the Myrtlewood factory every trip over from Canby to Twin Rocks. My cell is 503 705-3063.

    I suspect that you live within about 2 miles of Norm and Vickie. She is a retired RN from the LeGrande hospital, and Norm is semi retired. He was the head of respiratory therapy there.

    Kind Regards,

    2 Boles Aeros, in fact. A 1948 14' and a 1949 12'. I completely rebuilt the '48 and was almost finished when someone from Scottsdale AZ heard about it, sent me a bunch of money from only a few photos, and asked if I could deliver it. Being recently retired I decided that a springtime trip to AZ was in the cards. They paid for the trailer in full in advance and gave me an unexpected $1000 when I got it to them. Scottsdale is about a two day trip for me. I sometimes miss it.............
    The '49 is my "stump jumping" "ford swimming" , fishin' and exploring trailer. I keep wanting to rebuild it, but never quit using it for long enough. It needs new floor, and about everything else. But doesn't leak!! Someday....................
    I will try to send some photos later. I am, at this moment, packing to take the Safari to Minnesota in an hour or so. Should be back just before the 4th of July. I hide out at home during the big holidays until everyone goes home. Guess I am a bit antisocial after over 30 years of state parks work.
