Hey there fellow AirStreamers,
My lovely wife, our two cats and I are headed out next week on an epic cross country road trip. We'll be towing Mr. Shiny (restored 22' 1969 GT) with Moby (1996 Chevy 2500 diesel named for the great white wale.)
We have the forums and thus by extension all of you to thank for making the trip planning a breeze since most of the preparation, way points and camp ground selections have been made by scouring these here forums.
