In Maryland its Blue Crabs both soft-shelled and hard-shelled, steamed, fried, oh I'm driving myself crazy. I never should have moved back here on the Great Plains!! I miss the oysters and all the other sea food.
cooperhawk,
I can't believe you did this to me! I was born and raised on the Gulf Coast of Texas where I ate my weight in fresh Gulf shrimp, blue crab, oysters 3 ways and fried, scallops, clam chowder and as many lobsters I could get my parents to order me at restaurants. I liked all that stuff better than the red snapper, speckled trout and flounder we caught.

I made a trip to Conn. years ago to visit cousins, had fresh Maine lobster, steamers, scallops and seafood gumbo which was nothing more than the New England clam chowder with fish in it also. I've wanted to go back, do the same thing all over again, work myself south and over to Louisianna for some great alligator tail as well as other cajun food. Is this my dream trip? I haven't even thought about that, I'm just hungry now.

Hmm. 1 month in each state seeing and eating the best each has to offer. Staying in campgrounds with the best scenery. Not fancy resorts. Since this would be a fantasy trip, It would also be free. My truck would never need maintenance, and it would never run out of fuel.

Dream trip?

Sans-Airstream:
I'd like to backpack around Japan for a few months, though my primary goal while there would be to climb Mount Fuji and watch the sunrise.

In an Airstream:
I'd like to pack up my things and go around the US visiting the friends and family that seemed to scatter themselves as of late. I'd use the time to see the country I really haven't seen and make handmade books inspired by the places and people, just because it would be fun. I'd start out in Minnesota (where I live), then go to Wisconsin (Where I used to live), and then on over to NY, Washington DC, down to Texas and then up to Colorado, over to San Francisco and end in San Diego. Theoretically when I got to San Diego I'd just stay there, get a job and live in the Airstream. In fact, this is hopefully my plan once I'm done with graduate school.

Oh, what a great Thread!!

So many dreams and so short on money...

Well, Ok... Dream Trip 1:

I would love to do the trip again, that I did with my parents as a ten year old boy. We traveled from Newport News, VA. across the US to San Francisco and San Diego and all the way back. I would take the 14' Shasta we had at that time, but with a nice shiny Airstream it would be perfect.

Dream Trip 2: To travel around most of the US and Canadien Skiresorts in the Winter...

Dream Trip 3: My wife and I would love to ride the Trans-Americana all the way down from Alaska to Fireland, Chile... We would skip Columbia due to the high risk getting killed, but the rest should be ok...


Dream (reality) Trip 4: We want and will travel to the North Cape in Norway, its a better trip for a Moho, but we will take the adventure to do it with our Airstream.


Ok, enough dream trips for the next years and shurely more dreams to come. Hopefully we´ll have the right numbers in the lottery this weekend.

Take C'Air

Cool

This is really turning into a fun thread. I see people that would like to share my dream trip. Maybe a caravan will result from this. Maybe more than one.

Still thinking of sea food!!!

Route 66 in Airstream

Doing the famous Route 66 with my complete rig ( F150 + Harley +AIrstream ) but that is impossible ... May be one day If I buy another AS that 'ld stay in USA, as my second house, and spent 3 monthes ( legally 90 days , I think ) as visitor from France. The Pick-up & the HD in renting.

Why not...

Bruno.

Ok, so that trip wasn´t on my dream-trip list, but I´ll join in. Only problem is, that I have to leave my wife at home, as she doesn´t like any seafood...

I think, if we have the right numbers this weekend we´ll buy a trailer and a TV that will stay in the US and that we can use everytime we are overseas.
