Just got back towing across our great country once more with the Airstream from San Diego east to Maryland via a two week stay in Steamboat Springs, CO. (future Scheck residence) where the Aspens were in "all their glory".
Unlike the strong winds and rain when I towed the Airstream from Colonial Airstream in New Jersey to my house in Maryland - then onwards West to San Diego (crazy 50+ mph winds across the plains of Nebraska into Colorado, nasty rain both in the Chicago area and when leaving New Jersey, some super crazy drivers) this trip was pretty un-eventful!
Departed San Diego from "Big Toy Depot" where my little "Silver Twinkie" has been residing the past few months (located right on the boarder - in the picture you see the boarder fence and security tower) and drove up to "Green River", Utah - which was beautiful. Due to a closure of the 15 North / 70 interchange (fire caused by Utah National Guard was raging) I had to take a mountain two lane detour that was gorgeous - cutting east then north intersecting Interstate 70 - Utah is one pretty state!!!
From "Green River", Utah made it to Steamboat Springs "RV Resort" - home away from home (at least till I get my place built up near Steamboat Lake in the next few years)....
After a nice two week stay in Steamboat Springs, left on a Friday morning around noon and drove onwards to "Salina", Kansas for the night - then from "Salina" stayed outside of "Columbus", Ohio (took a small detour on a very scary one lane washed out side road to reside for the night at a "questionable hotel" - but hey what do you expect outside of Columbus at 2:00 am?).
Final day I left "Columbus", Ohio and made it home to Olney, Maryland where I watched football on Sunday - then a few days latter went up for the weekend to "Penn State" for Parents weekend.
Stayed in the KOA at "Penn State" 12 miles outside of "Penn State" and it was Great! I'm really starting to dig these "KOA" parks! Looking forward for the next four years to hang out at this "KOA" as my new "Penn State" hangout.
After the quick "Penn State" trip - I came home once again to the Maryland residence - and now the little Airstream is up at it's new permeant home (can't keep trailers on our property - Home Owners) at Ramblin' Pines.
As you can see by the pictures, another great trip across our Great Country
. As usual the "T-Rex TDI
" & "25 FB Airstream Classic" did great (love that ProPride Hitch too) with an average speed of CENSORED
mph and 14.5 miles per gallon of diesel (that includes going up and over the Sierra's, Rockies, and Appalachians)....
Gonna hang out East for the next few years while Zac attends "Penn State" - get that house built in Steamboat Springs (I'm renting the townhouse out in San Diego since I no longer need it) - so all is going well!!!
Looking forward to taking advantage of the Airstream being on the East coast for the next few years - visiting all the great sites we have over here before final transplant to the "Rockies". Now that I'm located in one place for a while guess I'm gonna have to go find and join an Airstream Chapter....
