Its Thursday and I love my Airstream because we made our annual summer getaway last week without any incidents(except the brake controller shorted out, which was as easy a fix as I have ever had) as we made it through S. Illinois, down to Mammoth Cave up through S. Indiana and back. It was a much shorter driving distance and much more relaxing time than we normally have.

One is camping with me right now next to a log cabin by the Tye River. Courtesy parking at its finest! And the other?

By the looks of a quick reconnaissance mission to Trailer Buff late yesterday, the empty space where he was living in the holding yard means Elvis might be in the buidling! I'm heading over in a bit to confirm.

It's Thursday and I love my Airstream because this time next week we will have spent the good part of a week at Grayton Beach State Park...hoping to not look like a lobster at that point.

Counting the days 'till I can be counting the miles.

It's Thursday, and I like my Airstream because...wow, that's a tough one. There are so many reasons. For one, it always makes for a great conversation with others in the campgrounds. It allows me, a shy person, to meet more people. Two, making this big purchase and calling it home has allowed me to see places I never dreamed I would see. Currently sitting and staring out at the Strait of Juan de Fuca in Port Angeles, WA. Amazing. Life is good.

It is Thursday and I love my Airstream because...

When I woke up this morning it brought back a memory of when I was in third grade, I found an empty refrigerator box somewhere and dragged it back home to the backyard. I laid it on it's side, then stole one of my mom's big knives out of the kitchen and proceeded to install windows all around. Next I smuggled one of mom's old dresses from the closet, cut off a wide strip at the bottom and then cut again into sections to fashion miniature curtains. I gathered sticks around the yard and threaded them through the hem area, then taped the sticks above the windows as curtain hangers. I cut a large one to fasten to the end of the box to serve as my entry door.

As to what possessed me to do all this, I have no idea, but I do remember spending hours in there with my books, reading away on my makeshift blanket bed, propped up with all the pillows absconded from everyone's beds, in total comfort. I even brought my pet parakeet in there for company and made a little perch for him by putting another stick through two sides of a corner of the box.

Now here I lay, once again, in total comfort with my books all over the bed, in a large (though well rounded) box in my backyard many years later and thinking to myself, "Is this so cool!" The parakeet, God rest him, is gone, but my two black labs are excellent company...........

Ours has no leaks, but it is not paid for and we still love ours.

I love my Stream, regardless what day it is. Thursday evening, we were sitting on the deck, awing out and drinks chilled. Soft music playing on the radio and surrounded by good friends-- some who also own/live Air Streams and some who want to get an Air Stream.

It is Thursday and we just got back home from a trip to the Deschutes State Park, OR and we don't have another trip until the Sept trip to our first rally in the Steens Mtn.
Therefore, not really happy for about a month.

It's Thursday and I look forward to meeting Gene one day. Good advice from a trusted vendor is more precious to me right now than a handful of diamonds.

Then the added exaltation of having 2air at last rise from the mists makes this a very prodigious day indeed! I had started a post in the "Where do you keep your wine" thread before I realized it was indeed Thursday, so I will include my newest light bulb coming on discovery, for the It's Thursday and I like my Airstream because:

I was born and raised to believe in multifunctionality.... Anyway last night I was searching through the trailer trying to find something and next thing I know, I have everything pulled out from the under bins beneath my front gaucho. Then I notice there are still old mouse turds on the floor back there from my time on the ranch, out comes the vacuum cleaner for them and 409 for the bins. While I am resting on my special gel foamed seat that I sit on when I am working at the table, trying to recover from all the cleaning activity, and looking at all the junk on the floor to reorganize, my mind switches over to another track. Though this seat is the ultimate little bit of heaven to sit on, my feet now hang about two inches off the floor which tugs a bit on my multi-surgeried back. What I need is a little footstool to be really comfortable.

Staring at the things on the floor and then something comes to mind from reading the Where Do You Keep Your Wine thread. I keep some of my special liquor in those under bins. I reach down and grab the bottle of aged Tequila, then get out a pair of my thick hiking socks. Push the bottle into the sock, make a little twist on the top, and fold the excess back down over the bottle again. I think the bottle of Stoli will make a nice companion piece for the other foot, so I pop a sock on that too. Place the two bottles on the floor and set my feet on them. Perfect. Now my feet and back are happy with the new foot stools and if ever the need arises for a little special spirits, the solution is within grasp. The best part? When I am listening to music, my feet can do this little jig to the beat by rolling the bottles a bit which makes a great little massage on the arches. The socks are so thick that it retards any rolling away across the floor effect. Figuring out something as silly as this makes me want to turn up the music....

It's and I like my Airstream because it occupies my mind. It sits happily in Washington State as I sat in Iraq, in an version of an Airstream called a CHU, Containerized Housing Unit. It is a 16 foot long trailer with an Air Conditioner.
We are 6 and 1/2 months done with the year deployment, 5 & 1/2 to go. I look forward to hooking up the Alumatube, the Tin Womb, Silver Twinky, all the other euphemisms and taking her out somewhere. Doesnt matter where, as long as it rains.
I also like Thursday because I saw a cloud today. First one in 5 months.

It is Thursday and I am happy because the 2Air rabbit is back.

Best Wishes All,

John from Iraq

Well it's actually Friday here and now... I like my Airstream because it's my home on wheels and wherever I go... There I am... Familiarity in the midst of strangeness. If I choose to stay for awhile there are none of the complexities of moving. I take my house, my dog and my employment with me.

Thumbs up

.........Because an Airstream friendship has brought one wise wiley wabbit out of hiding, and put the spotlight on a VERY deserving Hog.




Wishing you both the very best.
