After 2 weeks of living in approx. 120 square feet (16' Bambi), traveling 3,000 miles through 10 states & DC, sleeping everywhere from a Cracker Barrel parking lot in Virginia, to Disney's Ft. Wilderness in Orlando, to Anastasia State Park in St. Augustine, to Red Gate Farm in Savannah, to celebrating New Year's in Mechanicsville, VA, Mat & I (and our cat) completed our first real Airstream Adventure! It was awesome!

Sadly, we've parked The Nugget until the spring, but we've already started planning the next "big" trip!

Happy New Year to you all! May the days, months, and miles of 2014 be good to you!

Wonderful! Hope to something similar in our Bambi soon. We were in St A over thanksgiving (sans trailer) and did a drive through of Anastasia SP. How did you like it?

We're glad to hear that your first Airstream adventure went well. We also love seeing lots of pictures.

We were in Shark Eye #52. It's a handicap-accessible site, which means that it has a black top pad and it's closest to the bathrooms/showers. It was a nice site. The park was full (mostly tents), although we heard from some walkers that there was another 16' Bambi in the park because they asked why we had moved sites!

If the weather had been better, the beach access would have been much more appreciated. It's a beautiful beach (attached a couple of beach pix). Imagine a sunny day!

Downtown St. Augustine was an absolute mad house with the holiday crowds, so we went to Publix, headed back to the park, grilled up some steaks, opened the wine, and lit a fire...much better!

All that fun in FL and I see you are back in time for "Snowmageddon".
Glad to see everything worked out well.
Welcome back.

Sounds like a great adventure. Any "lessons learned" for us fellow Bambi 16 owners? Our adventures have only been for a few days at a time.

Sounds like you had a fabulous time! Your Christmas looked suspiciously like our New Years Eve.. Campfires and Wine!! Don't be sad about putting The Nugget away! Look forward to the next adventure!
