As I write this my trusted family is inspecting my new 2007 Airstream 27FB SE/LS. They've been at it for 90 minutes, and can't find anything wrong. They say it appears to have hardly been used!
They've looked and poked and cranked and opened and closed and run water and lit flames and shined lights and all those things the dry-camper does. They've got logistical issues reaching AC & water, and may or not be able to. I expect this will go forward in another hour or two.
They're in Houston, will pull it to Waco Monday, and I won't see it for 5 long weeks. I'm in Atlanta, and it isn't clear how we will get it here, but we will manage. It looks like I'm in the market for a pickup truck.
But, the Airstream isn't a member of this forum - I am! So I would like to introduce myself. Just the basics - hedonistic bohemian.
From Wikipedia on hedonistic
: "The basic idea behind hedonistic thought is that pleasure is the only thing that is good for a person; indeed: the only good."
From Wikipedia on bohemianism
: "Bohemians were associated with unorthodox or antiestablishment political or social viewpoints, which were often expressed through non-marital sexual relations, frugality, and/or voluntary poverty."
Actually I'm not in a committed relationship with those concepts, but it rings true with me and, if not the way I've lived my life, perhaps it's been a general direction.
I'm not in any committed relationship now and I intend to take the convergence of the loss of a committed relationship, daughters going off to college, and job loss becomes early retirement as an excuse to be more hedonistic and more bohemian. More self determination, less responsibility, more free time. I promise I will use my power for good.
I still have this house in Atlanta to sell so I won't be full-timing for a while. But that's the dream.
I previously posted here as cbgenrich, but as the weeks went on and it became clear Airstream was my path I decided to take on a more descriptive moniker. I have spent the last 25 years in computer engineering, mostly software development with a lot of networking and network security lately. That has served me well and I enjoy it, and will not likely be giving it up - just no more working for the man.
I hope to meet up with many of you at rallies rallies and campgrounds. Feel free to knock on my door - I'll be expecting you.
P.S. - When we meet, mention this introduction for free unlimited computer support. Told you I would use my power for good!
