Hi Aistream Mo-Homers
I have been real quiet on this wonderful forum for the past 6 months because I have been in the process of selling my company (a computer network technology company that makes systems for the recording studio business) and that is now done! Hooray! I am not rich but I am now free to do what I have always wanted and that is to take a year to travel around the country.
The wife and I are planning on going off around the country for 12 months literally going from San Francisco to Seattle to Vancouver to Minneapolis to Chicago to New York to DC to Miami to New Orleans to Austin to Los Angeles - where we will be living in future.
After much debating we have decided to sell our 1990 345LE, which is in outstanding condition and only 44,000 miles and having spent about $35k on restoring it, and get a larger 40ft Prevost bus conversion - we need room for the wife's shoes!
Here's why we have decided to sell the 345LE - we will be living full time and travelling for the next couple of years. We have 2 big cats, all my photo gear, her computers (designer), my computers, my guitars and we want to be able to tow our Ford Ranger with my trailbike in the back...
There simply isn't the storage room or the chassis/engine power to do that with the 345LE. Oh and the shoes of the wife as mentioned. Actually being serious the clothes and shoes storage becomes a real issue if you are going to be living full time. A weekend trip or a few weeks vacation at a time is *really* different to taking your whole world around with you!
We will still be keeping our 58 Traveler (as in the photos on this site) of course and will be looking at getting another restored vintage trailer next year to use for our weekend trips! We can't stand to not be Airstream people anymore!
Any one interested in finding out more about the 345LE (it is in San Francisco) drop me a line at email@example.com
- I am in the middle of doing a web site for it this weekend with full details.
We will REALLY miss our beautiful 345 but have had to come to the conclusion we can't afford to keep her too!
By the way, as we travel around the country we'd love to drop in and enjoy a cup of tea with any folk who read this forum (hey, I'm a Brit - got to have a nice cup of tea in the afternoon!)
We'll post our whereabouts every so often!
Very best wishes to you all
Will and Naomi Henshall
