It's fun when you make the connection and go oh that's Mr and Mrs TCP.

Thanks for the great read.

We have been in our Airstream with our four Boxers since the first week in May..

It is interesting at times, but since we have been stationary for most of this time, we made a yard so that we can open the door at first light to let them out and grab a few more winks..

We have four dogs and we are new full-timers.

That is one of the youngsters!

Here is great uncle Tank,,,, looking for a bite..

(He is a tank) old and lumbering, but surprisingly (and amazingly) athletic at times...

That's awesome. Back home we used a doggie door and we are missing it a lot.

Waking up to take the dogs out is not something we had done in a few years..

I'm loving your little setup you have there. The USA flag awning is great! So is your Airstream paint job.

Smile Getting ready to full time with my dogs as well

Good Morning I am so interested to know how it works out with the dogs? I am a 53 year old single Mom who just had her last child/adult move out. I am selling my huge house and getting an airstream to fulfill my lifelong dream. I have 3 dogs 1 is a 150b Newfie lol. I keep trying to imagine what it will be like for them coming from 8 acres in the woods. How do things go when you are at a campground? Barking an issue? Do most campgrounds allow dogs? is there a limit? Sorry for the overload of questions I have been thinking I was a bit crazy to embark on this adventure but reading your post has given me a bit of hope
I haven't bought my Airstream yet I have been stalking the classifieds for weeks. Although my Newfie is only 2 she is in need of a wheelchair so that will be another little bump to get over. I appreciate any advice you have to help the transition for my dogs a bit easier.

IMO, bringing your dog with you can be a good idea. Just remember, every campground is just like an on-leash park. You have to be aware of your own and keep them handled. I can't stand when other people allow their dog to run free....in a campground...and bark outside...

Most campgrounds allow dogs but some have pet 'fees' and sometimes there is a limit. However, no one has harassed us about our dogs. It is best to check with the particular establishment. We keep our dogs in the trailer at all times except for when they are on leash.

If your dog is well-behaved and won't run out the door or BARK constantly, then I'll think you'll be fine.

You will find the SMALL SPACE you live in with your pets becomes even SMALLER over time.

Hiking Near Bend, Oregon - Mr. TCP (aka BambiBooth)

If you’re considering full-timing in an Airstream or RV, or even in your car, at some point you might ask yourself “What do full-timers do all day?” At least, that is one of the questions I had. Not necessarily the, what do you do all day question – because we work full-time from the road – but more of a, what do you do when work is done?

For us, we’ve found plenty of time to do something that I love to hate. HIKING. You might think hiking is fun, as do I. However, that usually changes after about the first 15 minutes when we start climbing up the steep grades of any good ol’ hike. I often think something is wrong inside me because I’ll pass people who are gazing at the cliffs or rivers and they aren’t even out of breath. Meanwhile, I huff and puff like I’m dragging boulders and can’t even get out a quick exchange of pleasantries without it coming out as a single or few, UGH, HERG, EHH, HAGGGGG. I promise I’m just saying hello, no need to stare or be scared. I promise I am not going to fall on you, this time.



I often forget to check the name of the trail, which would be prudent, because it will usually tell you what you’re in for. To be honest, this one wasn’t that bad. It only held a few short uphill beasts that I conquered (barely) and it certainly wasn’t worthy of the name Misery Ridge. Perhaps, it has to do with the height of the peak and the chance that you could fall off the edge and break your leg. That would probably be considered misery. We even saw these little huts along the trail with crutches strapped to them.



As you wind your way up this trail, you’ll find a lot of great vantage points of the area. One of those is likely Bend, Terrebonne, or Redmond, depending on which direction you’re looking or facing. You’ll also find skilled rock climbers dangling from the walls looking over at the “hikers” with their Saloman shoes and their walking sticks, and in my head they are thinking – you enjoy your hike while I climb straight up this wall while eating a Clif bar. Hey, I have Clif bars too…



Now, I should mention that while I’m known as the heavy breather, I’m also known by a few other names. Sally, Pokey Joe, Slow Mo, Hurry UP! And, my favorite – ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE IT? – well, you get the idea. These are all names Mrs. TCP will give me on any one of our hikes. And, it’s not that I’m really slow, nor is she mean. I like to take photos and she likes to do acrobatics and wants me to hurry and be there when she springs into action.



Often, the best part of a hike is when you finally make it to the top and you’re convinced the effort was worth the view.



So, if you’re in Bend, Oregon and find yourself wanting to check out some trails and a few good views of the surrounding area, head on over to Smith Rock State Park. It’s just a few miles away.

Nothing quite so full of love as a pack of good dogs. Ours are a band of unique individuals, all rescues, that have learned to get along well.

They all really love to travel, as long as it's not to the vet. (Yes, they can tell)

Interestingly, ours do realize the Airstream is 'home' on the road. One slipped his collar and took off briefly. When he finally realized he was off leash and alone, he turned around and frantically ran back to the AS before I got there. He wanted to get back into the silver doghouse quickly.
