John I don't want to hijack the thread but based on what I saw at the Moraine View rally our first year, there seemed to be an axiom that stated that the smaller the trailer the more dogs and kids seemed to occupy that same space.

Question 10xblessd

Well, I don't know if this is a record or not, but my husband grew up in an Airstreaming family with TEN kids. They even roadtripped to AK (from MN) one summer with their Airstream and all ten of the kids. I think I would have needed some serious valium to get through that

And just to make sure this post is pertinent, my FIL owned his own candy and tobacco distribution company, and my MIL (a teacher by trade) was a stay-at-home mother.

Oh, and while we are talking about VW bugs, I just have to mention that one of my great-aunts and her husband roadtripped from Michigan to Florida one summer with their FIVE kids packed into that beetle That was long before the days of interstate and air conditioning, too! It's amazing what people will do for vacations <g>

Post Retired

I am twice retired.... 24 years in the Navy, (Naval Aviation/Undewrsea Surveillance) followed by 14 years with SAIC doing Systems Engineering on underwater acoustic projects for the USN and United Nations. Wife still works for County Health Department (Immunization Programs). 30 years of tent camping followed by 6 years in a 16' Aerolite trailer has lead us to Airstream. We have a 2005 16' Bambi which is just right for us.

ACK! another music major......



again, I find it an interesting mix of talents, (and a recurring theme), that seem to be drawn to these silver beauties. musicians, architects and design professionals (that link is obvious), engineers, pilots, computer people....why are these interests all linked?

welcome to the group!

(BM, Music performance, Saxophone....but I run a computer network for an architectural/graphic design firm. and I'm a pilot. go figure... )

"outlier"

1.Geol rock.. formation an outcrop of rock that is separated from a main formation
2. outlying part of something...a separate part of a system, organization, or body that is at some distance from the main part
3.Somebody living at a distance from work..somebody who lives a long distance from his or her work

Encarta Unabridged Dictionary


So are you implying I have rocks (probably in my head), or I'm a separate part of the system?

can't be number 3, I work three blocks from home.
