Well, the day has come. Talk about self-inflicted wounds, setting myself up to judge such awesome pictures, and yeah, pick one! I could have picked 30. But alas, it has to be. First, thanks everyone for contributing such great posts this month; I mean really, there were some literally spectacular posts. My job was made slightly easier with one of our members disqualifying themselves because potentially they knew they could not run a contest next month due to time constraints.

The theme was to share with others great places they had been because their Airstream had allowed them to go there - unique, interesting, beautiful places, and I asked for a little bit of a story. So on my (ultimately) short list was SteveSueMac (post 3) with his picture and story from the Calvin Coolidge home - this post really caught my imagination and the whole concept of the contest. Another was Enived2 (post 6) with the picture of the moose - simply a stunning picture. And the last was MaxTow (post 126) with the collage of pictures (including a map of the trip) heading out west.

Without further ado, the winner for October is ... drum roll... MaxTow for post 126!! Just to be clear, I could not choose which of the pictures, so have chosen the entire post. Congratulations MaxTow! Looking forward to the November topic.

I change my desktop background every couple of days - and I think I snagged enough pictures from this months contest (and from a whack of folks) to keep me going for a very long time.

Sincere congratulations to MaxTow on a very well-deserved win in a highly competitive month!

And just as sincere congratulations to Nilesrob for a job very well done!

Thanks (to all),

Wow Brad, this was a great theme, I believe ALL of us are winners this month because if I (we) didn't have Airstreams we probably wouldn't have been on this forum, read this thread, and not experience (vicariously) all of these great places. What a fantastic group of photos you were able to get everyone to post. It is going to be tough to beat this month's group of entries!

Thanks all - the contest was really at the heart of why we have Airstreams to begin with - so no surprise that there were many inspired entries.

A bit of a sad day today as we put the Airstream into winter storage for 6 months. We've already had traces of snow over the past week or so.

Lots of time to plan next year's adventures. Obviously I need to plan next months contest. Thinking cap firmly on!
