Spent the weekend in the Airstream, boondocking on the Suwanee river, here in Florida. Friends invited us to camp with them on their 25 acre lot. We had 3 boats and did a lot of spring hopping and river cruising. I'll post some pics later!

Our city's childrens' parade lines up in front of our house, so the whole morning is usually a steady stream of kids in costume, decorated wagons and bikes, and the occasional over-the-top pirate ship or covered wagon. We were decorating our yard, and in pulling out the decorations I came across some leftovers from a 4th of July party we had a few years ago. I decided all that stuff had to go - patriotic leis, necklaces, bubbles, gliders, and pinwheels. We hauled the box of prizes down to the sidewalk and started handing them out to the kids. We had a blast - we've decided to do this again next year. Totally worth it to see all those smiles!

Well, at least until October when we go back to "Mickey's Not So Scarry Halloween Party"! We've decided if its for less than a week, we'll do Ft. Wilderness. If it for a week, it's going to be a Disney Deluxe!

We took our '65 Overlander on it's first REAL road trip since the rebuild. 450 miles round trip to Paradise Lakes campground in Bristolville, OH to visit family I have in the area. No problems whatsoever, had a fun ride up and back. Ended up in a site right next to neighbors I had growing up and, come to find out, the owners of the campground now own the house I grew up in! Small world! Nice campground BTW- quiet, clean, and full of friendly folks. Many comments on how nice our AS looked - most could not believe it's a '65! I couldn't have had a better time! All the blood, sweat, and $$$$$ spent fixin' her was definately worth it! --dave

Spent the morning of July 4th walking around Fredricksburg, Tx. checking out the sights and the afternoon in Luckenbach listing to live music and enjoying the company of many people doing the same thing. It was a great way to spend the day!

This is so neat to follow the 4th around the USofA through all your celebrations! Sounds like we are enjoying all the day intends We know our nations defenders have been remembered during all the festivities as well. Chris, "boondocking" is camping without benefit of any services, meaning you provide your own water needs, energy needs, and tote out your "refuse," of ALL kinds Takes some special planning, but when you are able to provide all these needs, you can camp in some spectacular out of the way places that more conventional camping never sees. ~G Any more 4th adventures to share?

We had a bunch of friends over, some of them forum members. I think the total was 16, not counting pets. Of these, two families were new Rv'ers that we have talked into RVing . Unfortunately, they bought SOB's, but you have to start somewhere. One family hates Airstreams, as they are considered "old fuddy-duddy" trailers, the other couldn't find an Airstream motor home within the budget.
5 pounds of ground chuck (not our mod-erator), 4 pounds of hot dogs, a half-gallon of Bacardi(no, I didn't drink all of it, I left some for the others), swimming, games, tv, and fireworks (you couls see our city's fireworks from our front yard), although most guests had left before the fireworks started.
