Can Top That

But only on the low end. Picked up in July - 60 miles back to Columbus - 5 miles to the dealer - 15 miles to the campground for the interior renovations.

I'm not sure we'll have a bigger year than 2006 - we began with a trip to Key West last Feb, then a couple of other excursions before Alaska July - Sept. We finished the year with a trip to Alabama and back. About 22k miles all together.

Michelle- Do your miles really count since you are the lucky one who does nothing but move round? Don't mind me I'm only envious!

We clocked 7,900 + miles last year.

We managed about 3,000. This year was more about slowing down and spending more time at each stop; then the relentless pursit of whats over the next raise in the road.

We traveled somewhere in the range of 12,000 to 13,000 miles. It was a fairly typical year with about 10 weeks total spent on the road. One of our stops, Washington DC, is always great because of the Smithsonian's and art museums, but I have to say we really enjoyed Eureka Springs, Ark. We camped out at the lake at a COE campground which was quite nice. In town, everybody we met was friendly and good natured! We wish it hadn't been so cold in Tucson when we were there in early January because we tried to visit the Pima Air and Space Museum but could have used some serious winter wear! Next fall it's Burbank / Hollywood and game shows! Hah!
So Long!

Got our Quick Silver in August and did 45 nights and a little over 5,000 mi. Trips covered NM, TX, OK, MO, IA, NE, SD, CO and AZ. Plan to do even more this year.

They count. I have the odemeter readings to prove it!

I am hoping that will slow down on 2008 when I build the Airstream Palace.

We only had only one trip - Minnesota to Aspen. Colorado. Perhaps 2000 miles.

We are too busy with work, teenage daughter, and exchange students. But this summer our exchange student returns home and our daughter graduates from High School and becomes an exchange student, then away to college. We will be kid-less for the first time in 26 years (over half my life). It will be a difficult transition... but also an opportunity to use the trailer more!

My Airstream did 3,500miles to get to the UK from the US

Since then she's been loaded on a trailer to travel 16 miles from Southampton to Salisbury. She was then towed approx. 80 yards to her winter pitch.

I'm ambivalent about owning a trailer that doesn't move - much! My sister calls me white trash , but my wife calls me McDreamy!

I felt better about it when I read the preface to "Airstream Life", it describes an elderly couple who hitched up their AS every Friday evening and drove it 3.5 miles to camp for the weekend, arriving back on a Sunday as the sun set.

The cross-eyed builder(No right angles in our house) who put up our cottage in the 1830s probably thought the biggest thing we'd ever have to garage would be a horse! So keeping it outside the front door would put us on the national traffic reports every day!

I will travel vicariously through all your stories - and anyway if travelling is about discovering people I'm certainly doing that!

Just a little quick "cyphering" as I finish my warm up cup of coffee and head off to the the ole treadmill, but I would imagine somewhere around 6000 last year. We try to stay within a 100 miles for our monthly (hopefully) jaunt, a two-weeker to Taos, N.M. and South Fork, Colorado and then a 10-day (5-state) trip to Ohio (J.C.) and back through Tenn. I, like some others, still work so can't go as much as some who have posted many more miles (envious as I can be).

I think we were in the 2200-2500 range last year. I also think we used it around 9-10 weekends plus 2 weeks.
