WHERE'S THE TWINK?
Sometime in February 2007, my beloved 1975 Airstream Argosy camper disappeared. It was earned the name of "Twink" because of its keen resemblance to a Twinkie, hence the priceless photo I took while on my road trip. The Twink has taken me many places, from mountains to desserts to beaches to cities and every wacky redneck town in between.
WHERE'S THE TWINK BEEN?
Last year I kind of lost my marbles from working too hard. I had a successful marketing company in Philly, but I really needed to get away. While some people choose a nice vacation, I decided to blow all of my money on a vintage 1975 Airstream Argosy camper, trade in my Jetta for a Ford F150 and hit the road for a few months. Here's the story: (http://philadelphiaweekly.com/view.php?id=12375)
Here’s a Holiday Photo Shoot We Did in It: (http://www.rachelsguide.com/archives/?p=99)
WHERE'S THE TWINK NOW?
I don't know, so I need your help! Imagine the horror when I drove by to check on the TWINK in the parking lot where I had parked it all year and... it wasn't there!!! "No sweat," I thought, "it must have been towed." But when the police had no records of any towing or abandoned vehicle reports, the terrible truth hit me. My Twink had been stolen.
I am DEVASTATED. The TWINK means so much to me, has taken me so many places and I had pictured traveling with it for years to come. I had dreamed of making the TWINK into a career somehow - pitching some book ideas, maybe trying to get a show, a sponsorship perhaps... And now it's gone. Someone has to know something. Please help me find the TWINK!

|Rachel, I hope by now (July 2007) you found your "Twink". If not you may want to post its licence plate # (they do have plates, don't they?). Anyway I will watch here. Probably some low life took it off into the backwoods to live in it permanently.|
I want to buy a newer International, 25'-28'. I thought I would need an F250 for that (and horse trailer). You tow with F150 and engine OK?
Hope good news comes to you. I'm sure everyone is looking.

Well, it's been a while since my Argosy was stolen. Just a quick update...
First off, a sincere thank you for your posts. I never did find this stolen Argosy, but I did end up buying another one just like it. I couldn't resist - I really missed it! Not sure what ever happened to the stolen one. I still search the internet from time to time, but it never popped up. I just kind of gave up on it. Maybe it'll pop up someday.
Thank you so much for your kind wishes and for keeping an eye out.
