The State of Things
- I am brand new to this group and I notice it seems kind of dormant.
Where does the situation currently stand? I would love to see the
Ariel Ambulance some place accessible for fans and protected from the
elements... or at least moreso than the aircraft junkyard.
At any rate, I just wanted to offer my help and support and see what
is currently going on with the ambulance.

Welcome to Operation: Rescue Ariel Ambulance, thanks for your offer of help,
and Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukah/Soltice/Io Saturnalia to you! :)
Serenity promotions and my new job sapped all my available energy and time
these past few months, so I'm a bit out of the loop myself. According to
Akin, some folks bought out the junkyard a little while back. So here we
are, back at the beginning... no contact, no deal, no transportation, no new
"home" picked out... YET! ;)
Akin, can you get any information on the new owners from the previous
owners? I checked the Kern County Assessor's office online, but their data
is four months old, so doesn't yet show the change in ownership.
Alternatively: Can someone in or near Bakersfield, CA volunteer to stop by
the physical Kern County Assessor's office? Email me off-list for the
Assessor's Parcel Number. With that, they should be able to provide a name
and business address for the new owners. (for FREE)

In the meantime, the rest of us need to find someplace to put it. There's a
preliminary list of Mojave-CA-area museums in the Yahoo Groups Files. I'll
start calling them. To anyone with a little spare internet time: find more
museums, medical facilities, airports, or wherever else might be interested
in a piece of Sci-Fi-Western medical/aviation/TV-film history. Google.com
and maps.google.com are our friends! Post the contact information to the
To those interested in a particular challenge: find someone or some company
in the Mojave-CA-area (Bakersfield, LA,...) with a 25' van or 20' flatbed
who would be interested in helping us out--perhaps a browncoat with a
furniture moving company, ranch,...?
