Us, too. We love to visit the towns of the places we go-always neat to see the "vintage" homes and historic areas.

And a good congo line is always fun- !

Just got back from our Victoria Day long weekend trip - one of the major activities (as always - how could I have forgotten!!) is answering questions about Airstreams.

We kind of got forced into early retirement but we're loving it.
My husband loves to take pictures and take little walks.
I love to take along some balls of yarn and sit out ond knit hats (I do this for a service project for my Church) that way I can visit with people that mosey by. I also read, do puzzles, things I can do in camp.
In the evening we can watch an old Western movie on the little DVD player.
Sometimes we'll just drive around and see the area.
A couple of years ago I had a stroke which means I have trouble walking. The talking has improved and some of the mobility but the walking and seeing is still a work in progress.
Going places in our AS has opened a whole new world for us. It's great.
I got my husband one of those gadgets that cranks the trailer up and down instread of him having to crank isn't life grand.

I'm glad to see fly fishing well represented in this thread. If I didn't mention it, my lovely wife Sam would probably leave me (taking the Safari). I bicycle and do dog agility when camping. She fishes and fishes and fishes. We both eat.

When we use our Airstream it is our base for exploring new and different places to visit. It is our home away from home with all the comforts and none of the worries one has with hotel/motel beds/baths/etc.

We like to cook and enjoy not having to eat out all the time, although it is nice to sample regional fare too.

Arrrrgh! Winter is too long here, I want to go Streamin'.

We enjoy sitting around the campfire with a glass of wine, walking thru the campground and looking at others rigs (glad I'm not pulling one of THOSE!), having a glass of wine, bird watching, bug watching, enjoying a glass of wine, people watching, tree identification, did I mention a glass of wine?, etc. When we get home, the wife normally says,"I didn't do a darn thing for the last three days"....duh? What's your point!?

I do enjoy cooking and eating but really around the campfire in the evening. Breakfast and lunch come right out of the cabinets and fridge. I haven't really gotten much into elaborate campfire meals because quite frankly there are almost always only four of us and the other three want dogs and creations made in the pie makers. We do have a tripod and nice dutch oven but I've gotten so we only take it when camping with others who want to try out that kind of cooking. Most of the time it is nice to just live "simply".

We do bike, hike, and sit and read a little, too. And work really hard to keep an eye on kids at the playground.
