How to pass the time?!?!

I have no real objective with this thread.

But I just want to say that the wait to get my new AS (end of oct) is already killing me.

Re-read "airstream for newbies" this weekend while traveling to see my in-laws...that helped - but once done its worse on my mind

This sounds like children during the summer, home from school, who scream, "I'm bored!". Pack the car with your gear and a tent and go camping!

Plan your first few trips! And don't make us feel sorry for you, it's not going to work!

I would just keep reading, there will be thAt one tiny thing that you will be thankful for. There are so many parts, little werid happenings and more. Just keep educating yourself as best you can.

Go shopping (and/or go through what you have) and start stocking up your Airstream. It will be here quicker than you think. I was surprised how much I needed (and I'm still not finished).

Then get out some boxes labelled kitchen, kids, bedroom, bath, etc.
Put appropriate item(s) into whatever box.

I had fun outfitting the FaN. Another tip: I found a lot of really good stuff at the Salvation Army/Hospital Thrift Stores etc. Saved a lot of money too. My latest find was a mini never-out-of-the box waffle maker.

However, there are some things I will only purchase new: Bedding, throw cushions, towels, etc.

How about setting up a place to keep it between trips? Concrete pad, pedestal with electric and water, and your very own private dump station? Maybe a pole-barn-style roof to keep the hailstones off.

In progress - pad to be poured Saturday
Electric in a month or so .... Sewer is unlikely because of distance and grade

See my storage thread

I feel your pain -- ours won't be ready until December. I'm trying not to shop too much until it's here. I don't think that will last, but I'm trying.

I have now like 120 bucks worth of amazon points trying to burn through my pocket....wait and let it continue to grow? Or start blowing it?
