Me too, Dan - I figure it's a journey, not a destination.

I don't know what the hell this thread is aimed at for sure, but wish it was at some of the $400k motorhomes around me instead of fellow Airstreamers.

I've enjoyed this thread. It's a reminder of how fortunate we are to be so diverse. Guess in my 67 years (20 years in the Army), interesting years living in Europe, SE Asia (though "interesting" may not be the best word), I've come to really prize our ability to laugh at ourselves (and others). Fact is, we don't NEED most of what we have. Every time there's a tornado, an earthquake, or a tragedy the survivors almost always say that what they value most is their FAMILY. All this other stuff may make life easier or more enjoyable. Yeah, I have the toys myself -- but the journey to have earned them means more than driving them, living in them, or whatever. I'm very thankful to have had this journey. Look for me come Spring in "Silver Leaf!"
