March 22, 2004 Jackson Center, Ohio

Arrived at the Airstream Plant in Jackson Center Ohio. For anyone who loves Airstreams you gotta see this. Not only are they still making them there, the small town resonates “Airstream”, but they have many of the old classics in various stages of restoration. I even got to see one of Wally Byam’s Gold anodized vintage Airstreams! As Casper Ihle, one of thier fine technicians, went over my Classic 1960 Land Yacht,  I got to meet with Tim Champ, the Marketing Director, Jim Parrett the Service Coordinator and Rick March the Shop Manager. It was a great discussion, learning about the history and folk lore of the Airstreams and sharing the ideas we have for our trip. Their website is I recommend you check it out.
