To spend quality time with my wife, who is still hanging out with me after 38 years! We also enjoy having our pups along who reconfirm our existence every morning as a momentous event. Wandering the countryside and meeting new people is just icing on the cake.

Yup. Our pack of dogs just loves to travel as a group with us. New stuff to go sniff and mark, places to see, naps in the truck. They love it.

We enjoy seeing new places every day on the road, and being able to sleep in the same bed every night.

Started with a 13-ft trailer in 1983. We were just the two of us. Got into breeding and showing dogs and the trailer meant we didn’t have to look for dog-friendly motels. By 1986 we were 2 adults, 2 very young kids and 2 dogs and 13-ft trailer was too small. In the early years we headed out for weekends to get out of the city and to meet up with friends.

Having retired I no longer want to endure the cold Canadian winters. So about 8 years ago I got into the AS LY and headed for God’s country (AZ) and became a part-timer. Met up with a group of boondockers and enjoyed being out in the desert with friends. My Excella is equipped for dry camping. I can travel the back roads and never have to look for a motel or sleep in a strange bed and my trusty dog is with us – home is where you park it.

People say that about RVing (tongue firmly planted in cheek, of course) but having been homeless for a while after Hurricane Katrina, I can assure you that RVing doesn't resemble living like a homeless person at all!

I guess not- your RV is your home-
I could not find an RV to buy, nor a tent, nor a campground with a spot available, nor a motel with a room post-Katrina-
One night I stayed with total strangers to keep from sleeping in the truck-

Grew up camping in a basic pop-up. Parents were teachers so we had all summer to travel.

I adore Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, and the great West.

2 years ago for our 25th anniversary, we stayed at the fancy-pants Old Faithful Inn. The bed was terrible. Hubs remarked that if we had an airstream we would be sleeping in our own bed with our own sheets and pillows.

The gauntlet was set!

Going back there next summer for the 29th, and to Grand Canyon and Joshua Tree for the 30th.

As we see our folks get older (or pass on) , we have come to realize that we don't/can't wait until we retire to start doing this.

And I must say, to quote one of my favorite movies (Ferris Buehler's Day Off) "if you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up"

We stayed in the Joshua Tree park in the northwest corner RV park. The city road to get there was filled with very deep potholes, so 5 mph was close to excessive.

Our 25FB was a challenge to weave through the park and not get scratched. The 22 will be ideal.

I always liked playing house as a little girl. I also liked to fish, hunt and camp with my dad. Later in life, I loved taking the horses camping. I've moved down the path of sleeping in my SUV, to tents and pop-ups, to an older Class A motor home finally to our beloved '94 Classic. Today, it's opportunities to get away with my husband and friends. It's back to my childhood and great memories. It's a private bubble and special times with my husband that is hard to find at home. In the (retirement) future, it will be great adventures and hopefully work camping in our National Parks system. It's in my blood, and I'm grateful to have an Airstream to enjoy it with.

We decided it was time to see the beauty of this country from the ground level. Having spent 38 years with TWA and most of our traveling was at 30,000 feet, we thought it was time to visit the National and State Parks in this country. So far this summer we been to The Grand Canyon, The Verdy Valley in AZ and Glacier National Park, plus the many good camping areas in eastern Kansas.
Not new to camping, we did a lot of tent camping when the kids were small, then we did various types of camping with the horses, and finally got our trailer last fall (sorry it's a Oliver and not a Airstream, or otherwise known as the Airstream of the fiberglass trailers).

We camp to get away from hectic city life, and retreat to the mountains to enjoy cooler weather and scenic beauty. It's usually just for long weekends, but it helps remind you of the better things in life, so many of which can be enjoyed in the company of a loving family and your Airstream. It's also a chance to indulge yourself with Oreos (cows or cookies).
