It's Thursday and I Like My Airstream Because...

I'm on an Airstream Rally,
In an interesting place of great scenic beauty,
With 16 other Airstreams
At Valley of Fires
On our way to White Sands National Monument.

It's Thursday and I Like My Airstream Because...

It's taking me to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta,
To join over 100 other Airstreams and their guardians,
To watch in stunned amazement as hundreds of hot-air balloons soar overhead,
To laugh out loud at the special shapes,
To watch the astonishment on the faces of children of all ages,
To become a child again myself.

It's Thursday, and I LOVE my Airstream because it just took us to Tybee Island Pirate Fest and back. If you haven't been, consider it for next year. Beautiful island, right next to Savannah and friendly folks. More fun than we had energy for...

Because our ac went out in the house yesterday. But it was fine in the Airstream. Nice to have a backup sitting in the driveway.

Because, with this Airstream, we have been all over this beautiful country, and much of Canada, around 50,000 miles, where have met some of the nicest, and most interesting people on the planet. Can't wait to head out again.

It is Thursday and we love ours because it is our home for the next 2 years before we build on our new property Journey's End. Costalotta will be hitting the road starting Nov 4.

It is our beautiful, comfy, rambling, poking-around home on wheels.

At 124,000 miles, it is just getting its sea legs.

We hope to go at least 200,000 more.

Love, love, love our Interstate.

Because after leaving it in outside storage for a year, when we returned to it last month for a vacation, it was just exactly like it was when we locked it up and parked it twelve months before.

This is such a pleasant change from where we live the rest of the year. If I parked an Airstream in our yard in the islands and left it alone for a year, I wouldn't even be able to get the key into the lock for the corrosion.

We love this thing.

We were at Tybee for the Pirate's Festival too! Only we stayed in a condo down by the festival instead of camping. Had a great time! Looking forward to going again next year!

It's Thursday and I Like My Airstream Because...

We are home from Balloon Fiesta Rally,
But still recalling the sights and sounds.
Yearning already for another adventure,
We'll travel to Bosque Del Apache Wildlife Refuge in November,
A mini Airstream Rally with dear friends,
To marvel as thousands of Sandhill Cranes return,
To create more, wonderful memories.

It's Thursday and I Like My Airstream Because...

Here we are with Airstream friends at Bosque del Apache,
Yesterday evening we marveled at the spectacle of thousands of waterfowl,
Sandhill Cranes,
Snow Geese,
Canadian Geese,
Even a Pelican.
Today a day-trip to Fort Craig,
To remind us of the hardship of frontier living,
And a time when Texans of the CSA invaded NM,
To confront the U.S. Volunteers of New Mexico,
To battle each other, and to die in a desolate place.
