Great issue, read cover to cover by both of us. There are getting better ever issue.

We especially enjoyed the homeschool article, as we home school our girls.

Yeah! Got it today! Way to go Stef! Women with tools are cool. Also cool to see one of my favorite recording artists/story tellers sharing his story.

Totally confused. "Travel" articles belong elsewhere than a magazine about travel trailers?

Smile Yippee its in Misheegan now!!

Yep the magazine made it up the pike and over the old plank road to the Great Lakes state...I love it! Resubscribed for 2 years! I'm really looking forward to reading about the Luhr family's full-timing travels. Hope Mrs. Luhr has a blog of her own about family life from her perspective on the road...it would be interesting to hear about full-timing on a budget juggling cooking and family life with travel.

Thanks, Rich, for continuing and improving on your already-successful format. The addition of the travel and family related articles all connect well within the Airstream theme, creating a rich diversity in reading that reaches the matching diversity in Airstream owners and ASLife subscribers. Women working on their trailers-wow! From the forum, we knew this was happening, but the story was terrific. Like the above post, I too would enjoy following your crosscountry travels from the perspective of your wife as well as yourself. Hope to see her column through the year. Congratulations on another grand issue, and looking forward to the next! ~G

Thumbs up

Another great mag. Glad I got in on the ground floor with the first issue. Keep up the good work.

I loved the article on Solar Power. I have an excelent solar panel on my trailer with a little charging panel inside giving up all the goods on my system's status. It works great. When I first got the trailer, I was inside cleaning it and had the roof vent fans, some lights, and the radio going for several hours and I think my battery only dropped like 3 volts, and it only took about 30-40 minutes to charge back up again.

I love boondocking, but I can't see full-timing it like that though! I'd rather pay the site fees and have A/C and Water. I've boondocked before where I've had to lug those 6 gallon cans back and forth and didn't like it much. Of course, if I would have actually FILLED the tank, I wouldn't have needed to get more water probably for a week with my 50 gallon fresh tank the International models included in their upgrades.

Still, an excellent dedication to living free and a great article.

Rich's wife, Eleanor, and his daughter, Emma, have both begun contributing to the Tour of America weblog. Go here:

http://www.tour.airstreamlife.com/

and click on weblog. Bookmark this web site and return often for updates.

Eleanor and Rich have also written a few longer articles which can be found under the "Gather" name on the above web site. Click on "Gather" and drill down that path to find those articles about their real-world experiences with some topics discussed in the Fall 2005 issue. The magazine articles are expanded upon on line, a neat concept.

Excelent as ussual...

I read and re-read the article "The Chain of Errors" by Tom Yates.

I have not "re-calibrated" the brake controller since owning our trailer for a year and a half.

I think this will be something that I do with the Prodigy before the next outting.

I will stay at no more than 60mph no matter what tow vehicle I end up getting to replace the beloved Eurovan some day. Saving an hour or two does not seem to be worthwhile if it puts life and limb in jeopardy.

Thanks Tom, and Airstreamlife. I think you've opened some (sleepy) eyes around here.

Jonathan
