It's still Monday, so I can say we just returned from 10 or 12 days in Hamilton, TX trying to be of some help to our fellow Airstreamer Gayland Stephens, who has been diagnosed with pacreatic cancer. There just may be a light at the end of the tunnel, but as days drag by it gets harder & harder to try to stay hopeful & upbeat. Our Airstream provided not only a comfortable nights sleep tho. We also used the trailer to get away from their house while new flooring was being layed, and again when their AC went on the Fritz while it was close to 100 outside. I'm sure glad we took the trailer.

Airstreams ~ Great in the good times. Perfect in the less than good times too.

...5 days on...

...the Crooked River, OR. It was a twofold trip, 1. motorcycle riding on the trails of the Millican OHV park and 2. flyfishing on the Crooked River.

It's all BLM administered, clean and uncrowded. 20 miles south of Prineville, 25 miles east of Bend. The river comes out of the Prineville Reservoir, runs through a rim-rock canyon with some spectacular basalt formations and runs into the farming area south of Prineville.

It doesn't get much better than this.

Rafting

Just returned from a weekend trip to the Nantahala Forest where we found a very nice campground able to accommodate a 31 footer. The name is Nelson's Nantahala Campground (www.nantahalcampground.com). Nice folks, nice campground, great scenery! Went rafting on the river and did some sightseeing in the mountains. Beautiful weekend!

Just got back from a weekend of tailgating for a football game here in Austin. My friend parks his 1972 Winnebago next to my 63 Overlander, and it's quite the setup.

We just got back from a 4 week ramble around the Pacific NW. SE Oregon, Yellowstone, Port Townsend WA, Jackson CA, up the Coast, through the redwoods, Beaches in Oregon and more. We had a blast and have the dirty trailer to prove it

Decided we needed a short break and took the 23FB to Asheville to enjoy the changing color of the leaves and have a bit of fun. Weather was good the first day, and then rain and cold, but oh..... the trailer sure was fun! Have been working so hard all summer, that we have not been able to go anywhere, so off we went. It was hard to come back to reality!

We just got back Sunday evening from a trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama. We stayed at the Gulf Shores State park campground. Very nice and highly recommended.
We also stayed one evening on the way back at Joe Wheeler State Park in Rogersville, Alabama. It also was a very nice campground that could accomodate long trailers. The staff at both parks very friendly!

Okay, today is Tuesday, but we are on the last leg of a 3-month trip (minus a 10-day break for Maggie to tear the cartilage in a knee/have surgery) to Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio (2 stops at JC), Pennsylvania, New York and Maryland! Will be home in a few hours, hugging and kissing sweet grandbabies.

We have had an absolutely wonderful time in our '06 Interstate, which ran like a top and with which we are in love even more. At 61,000+ miles, it and retirement travel remain a dream come true.

We boondocked more on this trip than ever before, enjoyed some beautiful, scenic areas and one morning in the Catskills saw A GREY WOLF chasing a deer---as we were drinking morning coffee! Wow! We enjoyed a lot of Revolutionary and Civil War sites, made some new friends, visited with some old ones and spent time with adult children.

May everyone at some point in their lives be so fortunate. Life is good.

Camping area has its own boat ramp and parking; also a swim area. Restroom/shower facilities are clean and in the process of being remodeled. Electric and water hookups at all sites; has a dumping facility. Most sites are back-ins; although there are a few pull-throughs. I thought that most sites were pretty private (lots of trees) but since I am new to this I don't have anything else to make a comparison to. Downtown is less than 30 minutes -- hard to believe that something so wonderful is so close to the city.

We love our Airstream!!!!!!

We just bought a 28 International CCD and went on our first family outing near home as well. We went to Brown County State Park in Indiana. It is about three hours from our home in Centerville, Ohio. This park looked like a mini version of the Smokies and the fall foilage was in full regalia. Enjoy the new Airstream. We sure love it. Also, I am traveling with my three little ones who are 8, 5, and 18 months.

Welcome to the forums. Nice to know that your first outing went well. Enjoy the life-style that comes with 'Streamin.
