Hmm...28 nights, 5000 miles. Four weeks seems to be popular - I guess spending one month a year in your Airstream isn't too bad for working folks, but it never feels like enough!

We're jealous. You put in a bunch of Airstream nights at some cool places. How did you find out about the campground host gig at Arches NP?

Not enough

We've traveled around 10,000 miles and 173 nights in the Tin Inn, all east of the Mississippi River and eastern Canada. We got a late start this year as we didn't start until the end of Feb when we finally got the HA and installed it. We should do a little better this year as we're getting an early start with attending the Can Opener.

Humm... 2 nights in my '71 before selling it this past Spring. And 3 nights on the way home after buying the '60.

And countless days working on it!

Hi moose---this particular job was advertised on the Arches web site. That is a bit unusual --normally you have to go through the gov volunteer site. there are lots of neat seasonal jobs , you just have to beat the bushes. be prepared to say yes when you apply as they go down the list of applicants --if you snooze you lose----pieman

I'm livin' it!

Since I got my first Airstream 2 years ago, I've spent about 10 nights OUT of it.

Last night I completely vacuumed my whole home... 7 minutes total.

I feel like such an underachiever . 18 nights and just under 3,500 miles - it was a very slow year for travel for us due to health reasons. Hopefully next year will be back to normal and we can truly enjoy our travels once again.

This was a big year for us: Feb found us traveling to Key West and back - about 20 nights and 5,000 miles as I recall. A short trip to VA mountains for a long weekend netted 4 nights and 250 miles. Next to Alaska and back in July - Sept: 66 nights and 13,300 miles. I think the last trip for the year was to Alabama in early Nov - 8 nights and 3,500 miles. So 94 nights and just under 22,000 miles for the year. Whew!

But we may add a trip to New Bern, NC after Christmas - so still counting, maybe.

2006 Airstream Nights

7300 miles, 31 nights
Just took delivery 1st of March, did 7 Horse Trials @ 600 miles roundtrip each.
One 3000 mile roundtrip from Southern Middle TN to Western ND.
Just bought out my soon to be EX-wife's share, so I don't have to go back to ND.
Gee....Sedona sounds good!!!
But I'm still going to do the Horse Trials w/my daughter!

About 100 nights, and 7,000 miles, more or less. Looking forward to more nights and less towing miles during next year.

Dang!! Tramp Streamer, you got me. I was kinda' thinkin' I had this one rapped up but due to the price of fuel I took a lot more time on the phone this year... I'm in Wilmington NC Wal-Mart of course. My total mileage since Jan. 3/06 to date is 17,128. Now how many nights will take a whole lot more time to figure out. I average 3 nights a week and 3 weeks a month on the road. But I also have a couple of two week swings into the western NC mountains so we'll leave the nights to another post.
I can tell you how much I spent in gas but I'm keeping that a secret until after the holidays.... don't want to spoil my Christmas spirit. (it's in the I don't want to know department so far.
