How about the book that was mentioned? I was told by Donna D(??) on another thread that somebody had a book on the convoluted history of the Burro marque in the works. Was that you? If yes is it still an ongoing project? If no, do you know who the culprit was? I'd love to know more about Burro-ology and where my '83 fits into the scheme of things. I'm about the 5th or 6th owner of mine, but I have a fair amount of its individual history documented.

Regards,
Froggie

I sold my Burro to a nice family in TN. We have to make sure our Burros are adopted into loving homes.

Actually, didn't Peter Paul & Mary sing a tune about this topic? I think they wondered the same thing.

Where have all the Burros gone?
Long time passing.....

Where have all the Burros gone?
Gone to good homes, every one!

If you think about it our individual sighting "exposure" is pretty low. If I go for a 3 or 4 day weekend (probably the most common camping) out of 72 to 96 hours I'm exposed I'm probably only on the road for 8 hrs or less total when you might see me.

If you carry that out to say 25 FG eggs doing a weekend trip on a given weekend, then out of 1800 hours of exposure there are only 200 hrs. or less where you might see one going down the road. And they have thousands of miles of road in Mich where they could be located during that 200 hrs. Someone that really loves stats could have fun with this, but that ain't me.

That is what makes it a real thrill to spot one, or go to a rally and get to see bunches of them. Shameless plug for Mich. Glassic Egg Scramble right here

Itd be nice if along with our user ids on this site there was a way to identify where each user is from. Id like to know where all the Fiberstreams are located and hope to meet another proud owner!

My ID shows me as being in VA, in Lynchburg, actually. Right now the Frog's Egg is incubating at Ft Shenandoah near Winchester, VA. It's used as headquarters for my various shooting competitions, but very seldom on the road.

I have an Escondido Burro here!

The previous owners Aunt picked it up from Escondido plant, and drove it back to Arizona. It sounded like she traveled annually up to Spokane Washington and back down to Arizona.

Then gave it to their nephew for a wedding present somewhere between the end of 1998 to 2012. And now we have it!

...I lost count, how many does that make?

Got our '98 17WB in February 2011. Has serial and dry wgt. sticker in both door frame and on tongue. Drove about 90 miles instate to look and buy same day. Paid 5K. Yeh, I know you wish you had my lucky charm but the exterior looked pretty rough and the interior was just dingy. But for 5K? Absolutely everything worked except the rocker switch for the water pump circuit, the 3-way (weak performance on 110VAC), and a small leak from the ball valve in the Valterra commode. By June 2011, I had it shipshape inside and out and added microwave, FantasticFan, 80 watt pv panel and 14" wheels and tires with a higher load rating than OE. This spring I removed the 3-way and replaced with a dorm fridge and 1500 watt inverter and several itty bitty refinements. It has turned out a very good bargain. I figure I have less than 7K in it all up. The rear dinette is now a permanent bed; new countertop and boat seats on the locker decks up forward; also permanent. I do have the sockets and legs for the rear dinette so could be put back to convertible both ends by the FO when we fall off the twig. Hope that aint tomorrow but long may it tow in any case.

Hey Charlie, what competitive shooting sports do you engage in? I ask because I'm a happy old duffer skeet, trap and SC shooter and certainly not competitive by a very long shot. I shot "74 [almost] strait" at skeet about five yrs back. Actually it was 50 strait with a good recovery for 24 on the third squad as I missed high 1 and got it on the option. SOOOO, I guess I'm a competitive lier at least, COL. Afterwards that miss really hurt but we're conditioned to hate missing the second shot on low 8 so I would probably have been even more unhappy with a REAL 74.
