Good Day All!

Howdy!

My wife and I are new to trailering and hope to get into a used Airstream in the not-too-distant future. Mostly to hang out with our dirt bike riding buddies a couple of times a year in the Anza Borrego Desert area.
I do most of my traveling by motorcycle these days, and I've grown weary of camping the old, "is that a rock under my somewhat deflated air mattress?" style of camping.
We hope to meet some nice folks out on the road as well, as we love to travel together and this will be our four-wheeled (plus two) alternative to the bike.
We live in La Mesa, Kah-lee-for-ne-yuh (San Diego County) and enjoy living in near the ocean. Just wanted to say hello. Happy Trails to you all.

Hi Steph,

Thanks for the great link...I have it bookmarked. 3,100 miles of trails....I'm drooling...you can't beat that. Teepee's and cabins just might have to suffice until I get me an AS....just like moto, I am lookin' and lurkin' in here...so much info just wants me to get something to tinker on....but then that would be opening a can of worms and then I'd have no time to ride!! Thanks again for the info...I'm sure there will be others that can benifit from it also.

Ann

Ride on !

Motor, you are on my wavelength buddy. Have you been to Burrego or "Blow Sands" lately. Highway 8 to the east, buggies and dirt bikes.

I saw an Airstream tooling down the road last month ( an old one) with a state of the art dirt bike tied down in the bed of the truck. I wondered, why it had been so many years. It brought back memories of riding through the desert on my Husqvarna and watching the paddle wheel buggies striving to reach the top of "Blow Sands".

Cool memory, I think a decent dirt bike is in my future, linked closely to my precious Airstream of course. Good look in your search and be a ridiculous stickler. Don't settle for a damaged or compromised coach unless you don't want more money to spend on your dirt bike. Be cautious, have mercy and good luck !

Many thanks for the warm reception, everone!
Although I love the thought of adventure of it all, I'll only be crossing one bridge at a time. We're starting w/ the AS, then a new street bike (Honda GoldWing, what else?), then maybe a sand toy. I'm definitely not a serious sand person, but I have loads of fun just being w/ my buds and camping out in the desert. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular this time of the year, and we all love to cook outdoors. And, nothing beats the evening campfire comraderie.

We're looking forward to learning a lot and having fun in the process. We absolutely insist on enjoying life!

Happy Trails!
Bear
