Let's give this a shot!

Hi there! Took delivery of my new Flying Cloud 28RB a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier. I have taken a couple small weekend trips to a campground nearby to test the waters (so to speak). I am so happy! Steep learning curve, but I'm the consummate student - so really enjoying the challenge so far.

I camped as a kid (tent, jaycee travel trailer, then mini-wini) as an adult - mostly tent camping - but nothing for about 25 years. I have wonderful memories, so looking forward to exploring the country.

I still work full time, so my plans are to camp every other weekend until weather in Chicago-land dictates I must stop. Then I switch to planning mode for a few months and gear up for next summer.

I am considering a fall trip from Chicago to Lisbon, NH to see my son and visit Mt. Washington. I may be getting way ahead of myself - but I'm willing to give it a shot.

Ultimately, I'd like to travel the country full time (since I have no idea where I want to eventually retire). Love the outdoors and new adventures.

Looking forward to feedback and guidance from seasoned explorers!

Welcome! And congratulations! That is the perfect attitude to start with, go slow and learn as you go and you shouldn't be disappointed. I did the NH to Chicago trip last fall, it's an easy enough drive, just try to plan your travels around big city congestion times and everything works out. Good luck and enjoy

Welcome Aboard 👍

It's a rather steep learning curve but not really all that difficult...let common sense rule.😂

If you plan to hit Mt Washington, I can strongly recommend staying in North Conway at the Saco River Campground. So many great trailheads in the area.

I was considering a route via Detroit through Canada and then down to Lisbon, NH. Any thoughts?

Hi yellowcake: Welcome to the Airstream community. These Forums are an excellent way to learn all about your rig, and all about Airstream adventures.

We took the Canadian route when we traveled to New England. We crossed back into the USA just north of Lake Champlain on Highway 2 if memory serves. We traveled all the way to Acadia. It was a great trip.
