Stick-on-States

In anticipation of a big upcoming road trip this summer, I thought I better get my trailer ready - so I finally got my stick-on-states applied Now we're ready to go.

Some might think it's tacky but I love seeing these on other trailers, but obviously I couldn't put them on the outside of my polished AS. So I drilled a piece of acrylic to mount suction cups on it, and applied the states to that. then I stuck it in the back bathroom window. Since it's just the outline of the states, except for the states we've filled in, you can still see through most of the window just fine, and with the curtain down it's very visible. And of course I can pop it off if I change my mind!

I've seen them at Camping World...cost is about $13.50

Sounds like a good item for your Wish List to Santa Eric!

I had the maps on the sides of my previous SOB trailers, but no way will I paste one on one of my aluminum babies.

Over the years, I have accumulated so many states (plus 4 big states in Mexico) that it would pretty much block the light from the window. I had all but the very northwest and the very northeast states filled in. The Mexican states were from the Copper Canyon caravan.

Wow John, you have been around! I just love seeing folks on the road and seeing all the states they have filled in. Makes me jealous. Mine just screams 'beginner' now, doesn't it? But we're hoping for a long road trip this summer to OK and through AZ and back. That should fill in the west side pretty well!

And yes, I found it at Camping world. Had to have it, it just took me a few months to figure out what to do with it!

Yes, and no cheating by filling in where your AS has been without you either! Mine has been to Alaska, North Dakota, and probably anywhere else the International has been held in the last 7 years, but all with the previous owner...

Everyone has their own rules as what to color in on the maps.

When I had a map on my trailer, what I filled in was the sum of all the places I had been with a trailer; it was the sum of travels with the 3 SOB trailers that preceded my Airstreams. I also put stars over major cities that I visited.

My rule was that I either camp overnight in a state, make a visit to a major attraction within the state, or trailer the length or width of the state before I added it to the map. In most cases, the states I added qualified under more than one of the criteria and a lot of states qualified on all three tests. Short hauls in a state such as cutting across the NW corner of Georgia didn't rate coloring in.

Depending on what you colored the states in with you could almost have a stained glass effect, for that religious moment in the library.

Thanks, Shari. . .

I knew there was something I still needed to round out the Christmas morning surprises. I just ordered the States from Camping World. I can't wait to see Max start filling in all the places we've traveled and start planning where to head to this summer. What a way to dream beyond the snowy today Iwe've had! We are still AS wanna be's, enjoying our SOB, but dreaming of aluminum! I've had fun while shopping through all the mail order catalogs that deluge us in December--spotting all the aluminum and stainless steel accessories that would dress up our "someday" AS: ornaments, trash cans, grills, camp tables, patio lights, Coleman Coolers, and on and on.

Here is what I have

This is the stick on states plaque I use. I cannot take a picture in the dark without it coming out horrible so I will post a picture off the web site. It is called travel trax. it is 12X13 and it does cost more than the normal stick on states. I have ours mounted on the brag board that is attached to the inside of our door.

Ooooh, good call. I pulled out some Gallery Glass (fake stained glass) paint I had bought for another project, pulled off the vinyl states stickers and painted it with the stained glass paint. It looks even cooler in person than the picture shows. Much better than doing it like everyone else. Of course now folks are going to think we're just more of those rich airstreamers, showing off with stained glass windows in the bathroom...
