Amazing transformation. 1953 Airstream Liner, brought up to MD from Atlanta early this week. #airstream #vintageairstream #liveriveted #vintagetrailer #neveridle@nomadmmlodge cofounder Michael Vallen laughing with delight upon discovering, after wedging the 1953 Airstream Liner we towed back from Atlanta yesterday into the workshop and plugging it in, that all the lights work as they should. Great joy in the little things. #airstream #vintageairstream #vintagetrailer #neveridle #liverivetedF@&king awesome 3:15 end to a f@&king awesome couple days on the road. Arrive back in Maryland with the Airstream to find a flat tire on the Saab. At least I felt it within the first tenth of a mile, and there was a remarkably well lit retail plaza right there, with two cops parked nearby to make sure my 3:30am tire change was safe. Home at last at 4:15am.KY HOUSE TRAILER EXP 4-1-78. #airstream #vintageairstream #vintagetrailer 1953 Liner @nomadmmlodge #neveridleAnd our final stop in the giant DC-ATL-MyrtleB-DC two-day-triangle-trip is to scout out a 1977 Argosy 28 with front & rear panorama windows. Needs everything all the other trailers have needed, but it's an excellent trailer. Stay tuned. We'll decide in the next day or two whether this one joins the fleet or not. Some spreadsheeting may need to happen. #argosy #airstream #vintagetrailer #vintageairstream #neveridle @nomadmmlodgemore
