Ahoy, all ye Land Yacht Captains

Just returned from Alumapalooza 2011 - my FIRST Airstream adventure! This past April I bid on the Airstream of my dreams (on ebay!) and "won". That meant a trip from Michigan's winter-water wonderland to the big apple to pick her up. She's a 2008 16' DWR Bambi that I've nicknamed, "The Henhouse."

At Alumapalooza I met another woman who also travels on her own, with her dog, and she, too, has a 16' DWR Bambi...providing hard evidence that I AM NOT CRAZY. Ok, crazy about my camper, crazy about the wonderful and interesting Airstream people I've met, and loving the opportunity to hit the open road in style. Everyone was so friendly in Jackson Center and this new member is extremely grateful for all the tips and little tricks that I learned from others, made the most of the great Palooza programming and presentations, and enjoyed the Airstream factory tour.

See you on the road!

Good try, Kelly! But the DWR itself qualifies you as crazy ; )

See you down the road-

Was just wondering about these events.

I just bought a 1997 Airstream Land Yacht in January. We left out on a 5 Month trip and are in our 3rd month now.

When will there be other Airstream events? Where do I go check to find them?

The main question I have is I know Airstream owners are EXTREMELY proud of their Motorhomes and Travel Trailers. Most events I have seen pics of are all the Silver rounded ones. Don't see many like mine, Ever. Have only seen one other Airstream Motorhome that looked anything close to mine.

Do owners with my type Motorhome go to these events?

Land Yacht Ahoy is a blog about our trip.
