Bench Streaming! Great phrase Robert! I hope you get back in the rig soon.

Sounds very cool. What's your typical landing spot then?

I check the forum daily when I'm at home. And when I'm home, I'm often planning, researching or working on the tail end of our interior re-do.

All of it is valuable, refreshing and rewarding. I honestly think that I wouldn't enjoy the trailer half so much if it didn't give me something to tinker on and a bunch of great people to yack to about it.
I get that. It's your social media. I personally don't spend much time on the forum, but then I don't do Facebook either... Two completely different animals - one insightful - the other well....Just not the way I want to spend my time.

Since March 2013, geeee, lemme think...

More than about 40 days... We have family spread around...Grandkritters especially and their parental units don't have the "accommodations" the AS allows.

Grandkritters love "camping" with NaNa and PopPop.

I visit here to learn, connect with good folks ..

So 100% web surfing, 0% travel...so far...although, I may have fallen asleep under the AS while riveting the belly pan.
Now that is hilarious..... Get er done and get out there!

Days Spent in Airstream

We picked up our new to us Airstream in August 2011. Our camping nights per year have been:

2011: 5

2012: 30

2013: 101

For 2014 we should spend at least 150 nights in the Airstream.

I'd say the trend is positive.

Mark,

From....."Objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are"

A very inaccurate concept....may be closer than they appear.
