We did it!!!

Hey everybody! A few of you already know we did purchase our first Airstream on Saturday. A 2012 16ft Bambi Sport. . We got home yesterday (spent Sat night at a KOA half way home). We celebrated at the campsite with a bottle of Cabernet around the fire, grateful for a safe arrival after a rather long and stressful day. The first trip is in 2 wks. Life is good.

Thanks everybody! I ran into a friend of mine at the market and told her about it. She said, "Oh how exciting! Can I see it?! I've never seen one!". Can't wait to get it ready and go!

Wow! Where all did y'all go?! Sounds like so much fun! It will be about a year (retirement for my husband) before we will be able to take extended trips, except regular vacations. But,we're looking forward to "off season" trips in the future.

Congrats to both of you on your new Airstreams and welcome to the forums. You know that your life will be changed forever.

Maxmakala- What campground were you at in the Keys for your photo with your Airstream?

Congrats on your Bambi! My wife and I have progressed over the years from tent camping to truck camping to a Sport 22' and now an FC 30'... Every year becomes more and more enjoyable as we have more time and find more places to enjoy "camping". Your Bambi will be a great new adventure!

I'm so glad to hear that. Our hope is that it will be just as you've said. My husband has already said, "Who knows? We may end up with one of the bigger ones if we end up doing this a lot." Did I mention that I have been the one into the camping thing? (: Funny though....he never showed that much interest....until now.

Sunshine key. South of the 7 mile bridge. Site 422 on the beach. It was nice to wake up see the crystal clear waters and the sunrise. Pods of dolphins swam by in the mornings. Disadvantage was the wind could be a bit annoying some days. Who am I to complain when the rest of the country is in snow blizzards.

We were just in your neck of the woods this week end. Beautiful part of the country! So much history.

We've already talked about the Keys for this summer. (yea!) My husband knows I've always wanted to go. Lived in Miami when I was very young, 4-5 yrs old. That's only been....oh....50 or so years ago....Yikes! Sounds bad when you say it like that!
