Completely in love!

Hi everyone! I am looking forward to meeting you in person some day! I got my new baby this week and yesterday I took it on its first trip, all alone with my dogs. I have never towed anything or even been in a trailer camping before. I studied this forum and read several books and I am blown away by how easy and intuitive this all is. My dogs and I are tucked up under some trees, the only campers at this dog show and while the thought of doing this alone, with no experience, was scary, I have had such an amazing time!

Fancy -- you can't say stuff like that here without including pictures! ;-)

Would love to see the Airstream AND the pooches!

Exactly how we started...our PWD made us do it.

It IS a forum rule, your next post must contain photo's.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

One of the best features of traveling in an Airstream is that the dogs come with you! We wouldn't take three month long trips without the pups.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us. We're glad that you are enjoying your Airstream. We have been at this a long time, and it does not get old. We have just traded in our old Airstream on a new one.

Here are some pictures of our first trip!

The poodle is Jagger, the Maltese is Gus and the Airstream is not yet named. Although I am leaning towards the Enterprise.

How exciting! I'm inspired by your "get up and go" spirit...I'm in the same boat with no experience. Good luck in all your travels!
