Check out my Airstream Travel Blog! (thelonglonghoneymoon.com)

Hi folks,

My wife and I have started a travel blog to document our "long, long honeymoon." We are traversing the USA for a couple of months in our Airstream, taking pics and video along the way.

There's no fixed agenda, though our first stop was at Airstream of Arkansas! If you have ever been curious to see the legendary Gene Morris in his native environment, now's your chance.

The Long, Long Honeymoon: Airstream of Arkansas

Anyway, I hope some of you find the blog interesting. We are having fun making it.

That is very cool. I enjoy seeing people's travel blogs and dreaming of the day when we can do the same. Enjoy!

Sounds like fun...

Sean and Kristy-

Another enjoying the blog, and posts here... I love the notion that a trip like yours is not so much "character-building" as "Character Revealing.." By the end of the trip, you should know each other very very well...

Hope you have a chance to zip north towards East Glacier and Glacier National Park.. It's worth the detour, even if you have to hurry home across Nebraska or South Dakota again...

John

Thanks all...

Gene, good to hear that Tye and Emily made it to you. They are definitely devout Airstreamers!

John, we are definitely planning to head north and visit Glacier. I have an old buddy in Missoula that we'll visit. Then I think we'll head West to Seattle.

Kristy and I are definitely spending a lot of quality time together on this trip. A friend who specializes in quality control called this adventure a "soak test" for our marriage.

Sean,

Great blog !
My wife (suni) and I enjoyed reviewing your trip. We plan on going to Yellostone in May 2008 and it was kinda neat that we got a sneak peak inside Yellowstone other then watching the travel channel.

We wait in anticipation for your next entry.

Sean and Kristy, just read your blog and watched the video's. I recently bought a 25' Classic so I'm very interested in how the space works for you in your fulltime adventures. Good luck and looking forward to reading more.
Jack

Thanks for everyone's comments.

Rick, I am a Yellowstone-aholic, having worked in the Park a couple of seasons. But I must confess that this visit has also sold me on the merits of the Grand Tetons & Jackson. Our boondocking site is about 15 minutes from Jackson. So you get the Park and the town (for $17 a night, no less). And the crowds have been MINIMAL compared to Yellowstone. We could stay 14 days in they same spot if we wanted, whereas we were having trouble finding 2 consecutive nights in YNP. So if you are planning a YNP trip, BOOK YOUR RESERVATIONS NOW.

Jack, so far we are very pleased with our 25-foot Classic. Of course, there's always that little voice inside your head (one that sounds an AWFUL lot like Gene Morris ;-)) whispering about the 30-footers and beyond. We are 2 weeks into this adventure, and so far have been quite comfortable. Like everything else, there are tradeoffs. The bigger models offer more living space, but at the expense of towability and maneuverability. I'm finding our 25-footer to be ideal for 2 people, but Kristy was certainly impressed with those shiny new units in Arkansas.

Sean & Kristy,
Great blog - great pix/video (good editing, too!). What a treat, thanks! Hey maybe y'all could do this fulltiming reviewing and rating parks and camping sites around the country for the Travel channel & Airstream... hummm, something tells me Kristy would have to be convinced...

Thanks Jaxon! Kristy says she is "deeply offended" by your remark -- ha ha

BTW, I like your Travel Channel idea and must admit that the same thing has crossed my mind. With a couple of corporate sponsors, we could really jazz up a blog!

I'm glad you like the videos. Editing video can be a time intensive task, especially when -- as in my case -- it seems a new technical glitch pops up every day. My goal is to do a new one in the next day or so, assuming I can get my laptop to cooperate!
