I don't post messages often...but this thread is very close to my heart so here goes...
We have a 36ft Beneteau sailboat and
a 97/25ft Safari at present & we will be trading up to both a 43ft Beneteau & a Classic 31.
Anyway...as to the question...
"What does Airstream mean to you" ??
...the ability to go to someplace else & to sample what life is like there...for a while.
Someday, we hope go to Vegas (the KOA @ Circus) for a month, to see Yellowstone, go down the Baha, have eggrolls in China'town, go to Fisherman's Warf in S/F...she really wants to shop on Rodeo Dr & we both want to toodle around Texas & see if we can find some good ribs...etc, etc...
However...all that (Airstreaming) will happen for us AFTER...we go cruising with the boat from the Great Lakes out to the east coast, south to Florida, the Keys, over to the Bahamas & (if I can talk her into it) perhaps down island to the Caribbean.
In short, we'll be cruising with the boat until we get tired of it (that's going to take a while) & then Airstreaming from that point on until we have to stop travelling & will want to stay put & enjoy Canadian winters (ya right).
As to Pilgm's comments about (which to be fair I trust were of power not sail) boating vs streaming...two words my friend...
Anchoring...& Bahamas !!
Ya just can't park an Airstream in "some" places !!
