My wife & I are determined! We long for the days of our youth as newlyweds crossing the country with windsurfs strapped on top the VW camper... Well the windsurfs are gone but the wanderlust lives and now is the time. I continue to lurk and shop, soon we will find the perfect Airstream. I hope to meet many of you on the road, on the water, along the trail...

Hope you find that "perfect trailer". If you are ever in the Hill Country of Texas give me a shout. I would love to help you find the "perfect" place to stay and visit. Best of luck.

We had two VW busses back in the day, and camp life was about all we could afford back then, in a tent. Like you we lurked and shopped for about a year. Tomorrow we take off on our first Airstream Adventure in our pride and joy. Welcome to the family. Look for 1927 on the road. We'll be out there a lot.

Took a lot longer to get road ready and safe than I thought! Last Sept. 5000 miles out west, this Sept. Biltmore Estate in NC. Countless weekenders around S. Florida.
