Why did I buy an Airstream
It took me just over a year to get it fix so that it could be used again. I worked hard between my personal life and my career to find time to work on ''Tha Stream" as we call it.
Other than this forum and my wife I didnít have any help during our rebuild. I often received criticism for attempting what most said was impossible or that Iíd give up right in the middle and how much money I was throwing away at a nearly twenty year old trailer. They would ask why I didnít buy this or proceed to let me know how great there SOB was. I simply smiled and said were all different and we all have our reasons. REASONS? You have a reason for going through all this trouble?
Yes I do . And this is it.
I am a man. I work with my hands for a living. I am proud of the things that I can accomplish with my own two hands and the will power to make a dream become a reality. Mrs. S and I have always talked about owning an Airstream. We would be driving along and see one pass by and the next hour or so we would talk about what we would do or where we would go if we had one. Mrs. S. loves to travel. I love to camp. And we both loved Airstreams.
So we purchased our very first Airstream. Iíve worked many hours to try and get her ready for a dream we both have. To be able to travel freely and go whichever way we desire. To wake up in the morning and drink coffee and look at the mountains or the beach. Just the two of us. A way to break the everyday routine. A way to get away from the news and all the bad things that are wrong in our world today. We are in search for the things that make our country grand. To meet other people with the common interest of being free. Life can become so routine. Wake up, Work, go home, sleep, do it again the next day. But with an Airstream you have some freedom to wake up wherever you please. And that is what kept me going. We have only taken one trip in our Airstream since its repairs. When I hooked her up to our new TV and pulled her down the drive way and came to the main highway, I looked left and I looked right, I was so proud to know that I could go in either direction and all the things that mattered most were all in a line, and no matter which way I turned we were free.
Our dream was finally a reality.
We only live one life, why be bound to the daily grind and never take a chance on what you wish you could do.
I took a chance, and Iím moving forward, the only time I look back is to see my Airstream in my rearview mirror and smile because we are on our way to make our dreams come true.
So why did you buy your Airstream?
We all have a reason.
Just thought Iíd share mine with you.
Safe travels to you all, hope to cross paths with you all soon.
