as I go through this process, ideas like yours are another realization. Airstreams are an extra, unattached room of your house! they can offer refuge to things like a busted air conditioner or minor flooding until relief comes along. that's a great story....thanks!

thanks, kendrick.l.j I was honestly surprised at how long my post was after I hit submit....a little embarrassed at being so long winded actually. I'm glad it over well for some of you. I love that term...."escape pod" so appropriate. not to worry, a lot of practice will be had! thanks for that great welcome!

I really enjoyed you introductory post......
Thanks, Richard! I'm glad you enjoyed that long as it was

I was pretty surprise myself that that name wasn't scooped up already. I'm sure I wasn't the first person to think of it!

wow, David...I've seen pics of your rig from your various other posts on the forum...that's a massive vehicle. it looks beautiful. maybe one day I can handle towing something with 3 axels. thanks for sharing and seeing more of your rights and hearing more of your experiences in the future ....cheers!

looks like I am....aren't I? preparation and booking early are two important things I've already learned reading through all the stories on this forum....not to worry...that will not be lost on me!

you're absolutely right about that....I'm starting to come around to that fact. thanks for the welcome!

Welcome to the adventure, We have an older AS and being retired can use it for a random couple of days in Shenandoah National Park or go to the Outer Banks for a six week stay with our pets and still be comfortable! Maintenance on our AS has become a hobby for me that I really enjoy and my wife works wonders with the interior. In case of heavy rain flooding or Hurricanes that have caused mud slides in the Mountains where we live we can hook up and move anytime immediately. We have learned a lot and really enjoy the advice, tips and stories in this forum. Glad to be part of this group!
