November 2016 photo contest: Thankful

Thanks to my partner's patented "sour face" look when eating anything not on a children's menu, I find myself the lucky winner of October's photo contest. Thank you!

November is the month of Thanksgiving.

What is it about your Airstream that you are most thankful for?

A particular feature?
A bucket-list trip?
Community?
Solitude?
Escape?

In my judging, equal weight will be given to the photo, and the backstory.

If Francis DiBona takes requests (you've seen his photoshopped masterpieces), may I request a 23D in place of the turkey in Rockwell's "Freedom from Want":

Let the thankfulness begin.

Photo "concert"? That'll teach me to type this out in a parking lot before I go play with an orchestra...

Photo contest.

May I respectfully remind everyone that the goal is the posting of actual photos (usually taken personally or by a family member IMO) per the forum rules from 2008, as discussed at the end of the October Photo contest?

"A good picture is worth a thousand words . . . "

Thanks.

November 2016 photo concert: Thankful

Thank you, OTRA 15. I hadn't intended my Rockwell as an example of a photo submission - just as a symbol for being thankful

I know I can't enter my own contest, but if I could, I'd be thankful for new roads ahead, and revisiting old ones. And I might post this shot I took this past summer in Wyoming:

Wow, what a great shot! . . . which illustrates the theme well -- thankfulness for the ability to travel in one's home on wheels. As Huck Finn said,

"But I reckon I got to light out for the territory ahead of the rest, because Aunt Sally she's going to adopt me and sivilize me, and I can't stand it. I been there before."

Amores

Camping with my daughters family at Sawtooth Lodge, Grandjean, ID. Grandjean sounds more continental than Big John. Cooking weiners on my campfire. This was a little bit before drinking a beer and accidentally swallowing a bee that was in the bottle. The title of this one should be Thanksgiving Weiners, but I am not being allowed to change it. (I originally thought I was doing some Samores but spell check changed it on me)

Thankful! Yes, for all the shinys everywhere and all the good folks who own, cherish and care for these very special coaches. And most importantly, that they eventually pass them along to another generation. This jewel was spotted at a stop we made last Fall on our East Coast Leaf Peeping trip. We are always thankful to see a vintage coach on the road. Good Luck with your travels. Pat

I'm thankful for my 97 year old Grandma, Ms. Nonah Watson of Woodland, Mississippi. Last year my uncle made the difficult choice to move her into a skilled nursing facility (which, by the way, is a very kind place with lots of friends and kin working and residing there).

In the last year, grandma has only gone outside into the garden terrace a couple of times and has not ever gone out the front door. Well, as soon as I told her our new Airstream was out front, she insisted on walking outside to see it.

You see, my grandpa, who passed away many years ago, LOVED Airstreams. I remember as a kid him pointing one out any time he saw one and talking about how good they were. But, there was no was they could ever afford one.

Fast forward all these years and I'm guessing Grandma didn't want to pass up an opportunity to see one and let my Grandpa know his grandson got around to having one. We're thankful Airstream got her motivated.
