Spending more and more time in our 23 ft Flying Cloud

We purchased ours in November and have spent a week at Gulf Shores State Park and 5 days at Topsail Hill State Park in FL at the 2014 Canopener this month (Jan). We are leaving in about 10 days for Ft. Campbell, KY to visit family stationed there, son in law returning from Afghanistan. We will be in the AS in April in Huntsville because my mother in law's house will be full of other relatives and we are the only ones with a house on wheels. about a week there.

This is so encouraging to see the commitment to this way of life. As a new owner this encourages us to get out there this first year knowing that it all begins with us hooking up and going. I hope not to be that owner that says " for sale only used a few times".

So far, 4, at the Canopener rally.
I have booked April 4-5 at Dewayne Hayes in Columbus, MS for the Thunderbirds air show at Columbus Air Force Base.
We will spend April 19-27 at Lake Tiak O'Khata in Loiusiville, MS for the Magnolia Messenger RV rally.
We will spend September 12-15 at the Diana Singing in Pulaski, TN.
We will spend September 16-17 at the Terraport at the mother ship.
In addition, there will be other random weekends and holidays at George Payne Cossar state park in Oakland, MS or the North Abutment campground in Grenada, MS.
Also, the not-yet-booked return from the mother ship and the Texas/Louisiana RV rally at Salmon Lake park in Grapeland, TX.
Make that 6.
We just spent Friday and Saturday night at the North Abutment campground. We plan to go next weekend as well.
We will spend May 2-4 at Yocona Ridge.
We will go to Salmon Lake Park in Grapeland, TX in October.

We took delivery on our Airstream 6/28/13 and have been full timing ever since. The Airstream feel like home now. We had never RVed before and have some rookie mistakes that were the height of aggravation at the time, but are a source of laughter now. Our point of view now is that a brick and mortar home is more a prison than an abode.

As of now I have 9 camping reservations...
That does not include the Lake Tiak O'Khata Magnolia Messenger RV rally, the Diana singing, the service center appointment, or the Texas/Louisiana RV rally, or events that are further than 6 months out like Pickin' at the Lake in September or Thanksgiving weekend.
There are a couple of weekends we may not camp- Easter weekend and the Bikes on Bricks motorcycle rally here in town April 12- but other than that we will probably be gone campin'.
Dat boy is a campin' fool!

I could full-time, but my wife ain't on the same page.
Property tax, insurance, maintenance, yard work, utilities- phooey on all that-
If she happens to pass on before me I already know what I'm gonna do- but I ain't gonna kill 'er to make it so-

Seems I am always in the Airstream now - parked!

The FaN is ground zero for my start-up food product.

Someone give me a shake. We (I) bought our Argosy last July and we have only spent one night in her, and that was parked, as you see it, in the driveway. It has spent the winter in my brother-in-law's barn since November and I am going down this weekend to have a look around.

We have booked 3 nights in June at the Pinery Provincial Park and have plans for 2 other trips this summer. I (we) need to get out more.

I should hope it's parked! Some places won't let you stay in the trailer while it's moving!

Yes, I know that's not what you meant, but I couldn't resist.

Right now, I would say my hubby spends every non-working, waking hour in the Airstream....so eventually, we can actually spend some time in it actually CAMPING!
