Some of us started reading the forums voraciously, then later bought an AS and moved in, then started asking questions as we encountered them and have been here ever since.
What Crusty said is me. I am an avid researcher of products and method. I have spent a lot of time learning about my AS and as I update it I post questions and also findings. I am learning nearly every day. I do not full-time yet (perhaps) but camp when I can. I enjoy this forum quite a bit.

My wife & I are new to all this trailer living stuff, but we've made it past the first six weeks-- actually she has since I am out in Afghanistan --but I am coming home soon and are looking forward to spending the next many months on the road meeting y'all. This has been a dream of ours for a long time and now that we are empty-nesters it was the proper moment to go all in!

Those people asking questions didn't disappear

They are in a type of limbo, an endless journey, an internet nightmare, a deep dark abyss ( cue Rod Sterling and Twighlight Zone music ) that I call.....Forum Search.
I know I will take heat from the forum members who tell people to search instead of answering their questions. I don't have much luck with the Search feature.
I think one reason is because people make clever, interesting, eye catching titles for their threads. it makes it hard for me to weed through and find out what I need to know. Quite often when I do a search, I find someone else who has asked a question, and a forum member posts a link to a helpful thread.

"I understand getting annoyed with laziness, but I think it is stupid to get annoyed by ignorance. Maybe that wasn't a smart thing to say. A wise man knows who is intelligent " A clever idiot wrote that ( yeah ...it was me )
So don't annoyed, take a question as a compliment

Welcome to the Airstream dream!!! I've towed my cute little Bambi Sport about 10,000 miles so far & I'm absolutely loving it!!! You guys are going to have so much fun!! I've joined the Oregon unit ( A/S) club. Our group is so neat!! a fun bunch of great people!!! I've met & rallied with the 4 corners unit members in Arizona & the Pennsylvania unit members. They are so much fun!!

So have a safe trip back from Afghanistan and enjoy your Airstream adventures!!! Take care.

~Cari~

This.

I 'checked in' a couple years ago... was gone for a time, and came back recently and have been full timing since November.

And, some of us had to go live life long enough to get the dream in motion...

I'm Finally out of New Orleans (where I was living) and in Indianapolis, where I'll be working on my trailer. Life was interesting and my schedule a little skewed.

Now, I'm in a quandary.

I need to transport my trailer about 100 miles from point of purchase to my driveway. My truck is currently in Texas and won't be back until the end of June. And, don't you know that's all a long story!

Does anyone have any great, creative or just interesting ideas to pass along?

Thanks
Julianne

I'm not sure any of these qualify—

1. Find someone with a truck and hitch. To find them, start a new thread: "Help—need to move Airstream 100 miles".

2. Towing companies can load it on a flatbed and bring it.

3. 4 oxen.

You'd think my brain would have gone straight to transport companies - Indiana being the RV capital of the world, after all... But, brain fog, or something, set in. I actually have a couple prospects to track down tomorrow.

The problem has been tracking down someone with a truck, and a hitch. I just don't know anyone. However, if I were even 20 years younger, I'd go to the speedway and flirt with the pit crews to see what I could turn up. After all, all those luscious Indy cars are in town right now.

Oxen? Hmmmmm! Hadn't thought of that route, but Indiana does have a large Amish population..... *ponder*

3) Wannabe fulltimer disappears from the forum never to be heard from again.

I wonder where they've all gone.

I wonder whether any of them appreciate the carefully crafted posts, information, and suggestions.

I wonder if any of them made it past six weeks.

It wonders me.

Jammer - while maybe some disappear because the lifestyle isn't right for them, the posts live on to help many others.

A newbie myself, yesterday I discovered some comments from you on TV battery charging found them very helpful when designing my own setup.
