JC Day 3 Mid-day Report

So much is happening ... I keep forgetting things, so I'm doing a mid-day report.

We just wrapped up an interview with a freelancer who is working on a lifestyle article for British newspapers. Airstream Europe will be launching its first model this fall and the press is interested in the story. We talked extensively about the American Airstreaming experience, and why we do it. It's hard to express the concepts to someone who has never done it.

I met Jane Schreier Jones, a freelancer who will have her first article in the upcoming Summer issue of Airstream Life. Jane is a former Airstream employee. She's here today interviewing people for an article that will be published hopefully in Fall or Winter.

Brett and I met a fellow who used to design and build interiors for Airstream in the early years. We'll be interviewing him and photographing his personal trailer, later today. Fred Coldwell and David Winick (who is designing the upcoming Airstream 75th Anniversary trailer) will be coming along.

We also dropped by the service center to check out Dicky Riegel's personal 1954 Flying Cloud. It was just completed today, complete with a gorgeous interior (zolatone and birch wood), a few modern amenities, and a mirror-polished exterior. It will be in the local parade on Sunday, being pulled by his green '54 Ford pickup. We may have pictures in an upcoming issue of the magazine.

... and it's only noon ... more later!
