June 2012 photo contest

Ok here we go! Being the winner of may with "Bubbles and Smiles" I have an idea for this month. Often we take all of our pictures at the end of our journey But for this contest I would like to see pictures for a theme I'll title: "hometown airstreams". Submit a pic of the start of your journey-- the place you call home--because often your home is a destination for others. When you get your airstream out for spring cleaning this may be a great time for a home town shot!

So the rules are:

1. Submit a picture of your airstream in your hometown.
2. Name your town and state.
3. Say one thing that you love about your hometown.

Have fun! Ted


I'll post my example soon.

Dallas, Oregon is my hometown!

I really love that our town is right in the center of the amazing willamette valley which is teaming with spectacular Oregon wineries! Come and visit!

Love your photo of Dallas! I'm an Oregonian too and wouldn't have recognized that the photo was in Oregon! Great small town fee...and what a CUTE Bambi!

My Home Town Pittsburgh

Great theme for June. I have lived my whole life in Pittsburgh PA. It is a great place to live. It has a small town feel in a big town. Great food and sports teams. Low crime and a safe place to enjoy the sites. As you can see in the photo. I have plenty of room for Airstream courtesy parking.

Nice pics already but don't forget the following info:

1. Submit a picture of your airstream in your hometown.
2. Name your town and state.
3. Say one thing that you love about your hometown.

Cheers Ted

OK, Here's the rest of the story.

Estancia, New Mexico.

Not too big, but everyone knows everybody. Not too hot, not too cold. No one tells me I can't park my Airstream in my own driveway

Howdy from Portland, Oregon

Thought about how I could portray my hometown and the thing that comes to mind is GREEN!! It rains A LOT here - It is green all year round. Sometimes the rain gets to me and I think I'd like to move, but then we travel to other parts of the country and when we arrive back at home, I see my world through fresh eyes and appreciate the beauty, in all its mossy ways

The think I love most about where I live is the close proximity to many different regions and climates. We live 1.5 hours from the coast, 20 minutes from Mt. Hood and a short 3 hour drive to the high deserts of eastern Oregon. We have it all!

The first photo here is a view of the trees in our area...Douglas Firs and Western Red Cedar are most common.

The second photo shows how everything grows here...ferns grow right on top of rocks!

The last photo shows our Bambi on our first night home with it last summer...It was a rainy summer, but looking back on it now...sure was pretty!

Portland is a beautiful city!

(PS...might get downtown to try a photo...a bit scared of narrow roads and loads of traffic though!)

In my Yard

Here is my close friends and my Caravel in my yard. We had a great weekend staying home. Enjoying some cold beers. We also smoked pork and wings in the smoker
