Smile Can you stand another newbie??

Well that's us! Just bought a new 2005 19' bambi CCD.....which is clear from my screen name. It is in NJ and we are in MA. Bought it sight unseen -- but couldn't be happier. We plan on lots of weekend trips and a couple of weeks a year. My husband and myself, along with our 11 year old son and cockapoo. We drove to the RV show in Hartford this past weekend, and they had a trailer just like ours there! so we got to get a feel for it. It is perfect for us! They had to drag me out...I didn't want to leave.
I'll be checking in to these forums often for tips and advice, I'm sure. So glad to be part of the airstream community. It has been a dream of ours for about 4 years.
Thanks, and hello!
Lizzie

Welcome and Congrats!!

Welcome to the Forum and Airstreams! You should have great time and lots of opportunities to enjoy it! I'd encourage you to contact New England group for WBCCI and look for New England Forum members for events, rallies and get togethers. THese provide opportunities to talk to others who have lots of experience and have learned many things you are due to learn in the future.. No substitute for basic camping and travel as a family, but it can be interesting way to make new friends with common interests in the region...

Welcome...

We all know the feeling of getting the shiny new Airstream whether it's new or "new to us". I can't speak for other members of the forum, but I'm betting we all get a bit of a contact high from sharing your happiness.

May you enjoy years and years of Airstreaming.

Tin Lizzie

Thanks for the nice welcome! I'll certainly check out those sites mentioned. Many thanks.

And Tin Lizzie! Why didn't I think of that when trying to quickly come up with a screen name? Darn. Too cute.

Great to be here. Lizzie

The Model T Ford was called either a "Flivver" or a "Tin Lizzie"

My Aunt Jean called HER Airstream "The Silver Suppository" (do it using the Sylvester the Cat lisp - thufferin' thuckotash!)

Thank you, Shari. That's really nice of you.....now I'm not destined to go through my airstream forum life with that first unimaginative name.

I think we may even name our bambi the Tin Lizzie....we were trying to come up with something!

Welcome Lizzie and of course we can stand another new member, the more the merrier.
We need to start a naming thread, why and what did we name our Airstream.
