The second longest trip will be to the International in Lansing. Our longest this year, and probably for a long time was bringing it home to Florida from Washington State.

A Grateful dead tune comes to mind:


What a long strange trip it's been.................

I would say more than 15 since every time you move to a new location it would be another trip. But that is just me

My thought was that a trip began and ended when you reach home. I read a book about a man that sailed around the world singlehanded. When he landed back in England someone remarked that the boat looked pretty good. His reply was "well it should its only been out once"
It just seemed to me that a lot of the posts here were from those of us that love to work and tinker with these pretty shiny trailers. I haven't read as much as I thught that I would have about weekend trips, rallys, vacations, and just plain ole useing the things. So my interest is do we use them or just fix and polish them?

We usually make three or four weekend trips between the end of tax season, and the start of hot weather, then one trip in mid summer to Colorado to escape the heat for a week, then five or six weekends in the fall. There are a lot of nice options within 200 miles, but I don't enjoy the Ozarks outdoors once hot humid weather sets in.

Tuesday-Thursday camping

We do a lot of close-around mid-week camping in the summer, at least two out of every three weeks all summer. We miss the weekend campground warrior nonsense, and still commute to work from the campgrounds. It breaks up the summer weeks, lets us use the A/S, and we still have a great time... working days!

Our longest trip was to Florida and hopefully will be again late this year. Lansing is only half as far for us, at about 800 miles.

We take only one long summer trip a year with our A/S, ranging from 3k to 7k miles in total, and are gone from home for 2-3 months. Then we spend the next 9 months planning where we will go next time.

Some areas have become 'special' because of interesting natural beauty, friendly locals, and a lot of needed peace and quiet. . . . restful and recuperating, good hiking and photogenic. We have made some wonderful friends of all ages, some with A/S and others with SOB, from all around the country. And, the number increases each year.

We now plan a little gathering of those that can make it, to the same area, eat a lot of fresh fish and other good stuff, have some good singing and sharing around the campfire, and just enjoy being together. Its hard to stay away!

We usually choose a national forest at a high altitude [natural air conditioning], where the camping rates are low because there is no electric [and even cheaper where there is no water], and we can stay in one place for two uninterrupted weeks. . . and some stay for the whole summer.

The Airstream just makes all that much better, along with a great generator!

In my mind ..... as many miles as I can get in.
In reality, maybe about 300 feet when I move it from the drive way its new home next to the house.
It will be a few years till I get it on the raod.

We hope to be at both mid-west gatherings - 800/1100 miles total RT. And a 2005 get-away about end of Feb. 'til the first of April has seriously been discussed these past few weeks! Since we have some big home updates being done in July we probably won't get away too much more than that.
This will be our 1st summer living full time on the lake so we are still figuring things out.

We will take one major (one Month stay in Ennis) trip to Ennis, MT, with an added stop for a week in Beckley, WV. The round trip will be about 7,000 miles.
We have already been to the Florida State Rally, and plan on hitting All our local unit rallies we can work in around our trip. We are heading to Myrtle Beach, SC, for 5 days, tomorrow, then on to a unit rally in Fayetteville, NC, from there.

Joe and Mary, a month in the Ennis, MT, area! Wonderful. We spent a great couple of weeks in the area, staying not in Ennis, but at Madison River Cabins and Campground (highly recommend it) about 20 Mi. South of Ennis toward Yellowstone on the Madison. What a beautiful area-so much to do. Where will you be staying? Have you been there before? A small restaurant on the edge of the downtown strip had a delightful Sunday outdoor brunch served with live jazz. Fishing on the Madison and surrounding rivers and lakes was great adventure. We especially enjoyed the small emerald lakes called Wade Lake and Cliff Lake. Also within a day's drive was the Henry's Fork and Silver Creek Preserve. The weather was heaven! As fellow Airstreamers, I'll mention that I drooled everyday we took the drive to and from Ennis to the Madison River Cabins campground because we passed a ranch with a gorgeous AS Classic-lined motor home parked in the ranch drive. We never worked up the nerve to drive in and ask AS questions, but, I think that's when my AS fever reached high pitch. The result turned out not to be a MH but our '95 Limited. Enjoy your trips and, especially, enjoy Ennis. I hope we get back there one summer soon.

Visiting forum neighbor

We started of the season by taking a week and heading for the CA redwoods, then up 101 along the coast through Oregon. We stopped and visited Campcollector's park on the way past - stayed 2 nights - heard details of mashed bambi adventure. Finished off the trip with a stop at Portlands Camping world for more parts and gadgets.
