|Living here in upstate New York we're blessed with having the Adirondack mountains within a days drive. We have been going to Lake Placid for over 20 years, but this year was the first ever with a trailer. Yes, we use to stay in a motel (cabin).|
|We made reservations at the 'Whispering Pines'
campground which was unnecessary as there didn't seem to anyone else
there. A nice funky little campground about 6 miles from Placid. It's
hard to imagine that although I've been in the trailer business for
almost 32 years, I've never really camped, weird huh?
We had a ball.
|We took a side trip from Lake Placid north to Plattsburgh. There is the home of Colin Hyde and GSM vehicles (518-561-4784). Shown here is just a small portion of the Airstreams (and one Spartanette) that await restoration. What a sweet sight to see all these Airstreams in one spot!|
|Colin does some fantastic work and has a back log
of jobs. Currently he's working on one for a famous Hollywood
actor. Stupid me, I didn't take any pictures of it, oh
I'd recommend Colin and his staff to anyone who wants a quality restoration.
|Although this picture is rather blurry, I think
you get the idea that this is a tattoo of an Airstream on someone's
The hand belongs to our friend Brad who really, really loves his trailer...................ouch.
|I'm running the next three pictures in reverse
order. This is a picture of our good friend Chuck who is willing to
go on wild goose chases with me. Why is he smiling? Cause he
survived one such adventure and made it back home in one piece.
|We found this Spartan in Somerset county Pennsylvania. Here it's shown by a busy intersection somewhere on Rt. 220 on the way home.|
|Nothing could be finer than a Spartan right behind
ya in the morning.
OK, so it was in the afternoon.
The main thing is it's still connected to the truck.
|When was the last time you saw a Bambi that hasn't
been on the road in over 30 years?
This is an absolute time capsule with everything just like it was in 73 when they parked it.
Is it bad inside? Not nearly as bad as you might imagine.
|A fine original example that I hope to show more
pictures of as time goes along.
Denise sez "We're keeping this one"
|For a unprecedented third time we are on our way to the Tin Can Tourist spring rally held in Michigan. Here we find Chica taking Denise out for a bit of a walk.|
|Can you pick out our rig in this picture? I'm sure the owners of these 'lumbering ladies' were all very jealous of our quick and nimble little combination although none of them would admit it or even talk to us for that matter. Do we smell funny or something?|
