The 1970 Airstream Safari Big Reveal – a Denton Meetup Event. Seeing is Believing.

So you never thought you would see or hear from me again? Well, I hate to disappoint you, but I won’t be going away any time soon. If you have not kept up with the Airstream Diary, then you may not know the premise under which I raised the internet flag on this project.

A LITTLE HISTORY LESSON

Originally, the Airstream Diary, launched as the diary of our 1970 Safari. What was happening with it, to it, and its life and times were all supposed to appear here — long before now. But, after ten years, and a lot of life getting in the way (LIFE = www.texasflycaster.com / FLY FISHING), and cancer getting the way, and economic ruins, and a digital photography revolution getting in the way, and a festering career getting in the way, and all the rest …

The way I see this Airstream project now is in terms of my very own survival, an escape from an old and to a new chapter in life. So far none of the chapters I have written have delivered anything but great reviews of free writing and free photography – both essentially free on the internet where everything is free because, well because some genius thought it should ALL be free. I always heard, “Nothing any good was ever free,” and I tend to believe that for the most part. And if you are thinking anything here is worth something, all you simply have to do is click on through the ads you see here; I make a dime, and it doesn’t cost you a dime. How about that?

SURFACE SURFACE SURFACE

We are about to resurface in a visible and measurable way. I went ahead and threw down the gauntlet with an official event to “REVEAL” the Airstream here in Denton, Texas, on May 5, in the year of our Lord 2017. And I’ll be calling on that last guy to help along the reconstruction over the next two months, and I will try not to use his name in vain while I work … too much.

If you have not heard of Meetup, check it out, and get back to me if you can’t find the Safari Reveal in Denton, Texas.

Always look to our friends at A&P Vintage Trailer Works for more of my photography and stories in their behalf – and yours, if you are interested in Airstream repairs and Airstream knowledge at the GUT (BUSTING) LEVEL. I really actually am spending more time photographing and tweeting their projects than on the Airstream Diary. Check out their twitter feed at – https://twitter.com/APTrailer .

COMING SOON – New photos of the 1970 Safari 23, and maybe even a video or two, as I dip my skills into the new waters of Airstream life – documentation.

Just About The Time

Just about the time you think I’m gone … there’s a lot of things that got in the way of this endeavor …

Like a bout with cancer, and many, many more things that we can finally go into now that the season has me surfacing.

For now, you will want to see the latest and greatest things happening at A&P Vintage Trailer Works. I have constructed a new website for them, and also run their Facebook Page – for better or worse on that last one!

I have learned a lot about Airstreams through all this, and I have learned a lot about a lot of other things since last writing here! The lifelong profession of photography has waned, and other I am attempting to “wax” on other work to make up for the budgetary shortfalls (shall we say).

If you have questions about anything Airstream, contact me! I am showing two for sale right now on the AP Vintage Trailer Works site and I just linked them to the AP Vintage Facebook page as well.
