We moved here as both of our grown sons moved here. They don't know it yet but the plan is for them to watch out for us when we get old and frail. Let's see, what assisted living spot should we pick for Mom and Dad? And how do we tell Dad he ain't driving anymore? Here is our Airstream on Granby Lake just down the road from Grand Lake. There is so much of Colorado to explore.
I suspect you are a close knit family. Yes, Airstreams for all and we will do family caravaning. Like ours, your Airstream can be a "family jewel" passed down from one generation to the next. Find the right Airstream for your family and hit I-35 southbound for a few weeks to make the winter shorter.
PS I don't tow the Airstream on snow or ice covered roads.
What a beautiful spot! My mom has always said there is something special about the Colorado Mountain air! I can't wait to spend summers out there with our family.
I have lots of work I need to be doing, but I'm having too much fun looking for the 'perfect' Airstream for us. There are so many to choose from. Redo a vintage one or buy a newer one and make it ours? Get one thats smaller and simple, or one that is bigger with more room? We can't make up our minds yet!
Its sounds like you have the right idea and a good plan. I hope our boys will do lots of family caravanning with us coming up, and keep track of us as needed!
