Best and Worst

Pulling her through Sequoia National Park and seeing how pretty she looked nestled among the beautiful trees... Camped at Lodgepole campground that same night as a storm with freezing rain and hail moved in, we were comfortably ensconced inside with hot toddy's watching the tent campers frantically covering things up! Another favorite is realizing a childhood dream of having my very own airstream! The worst? Hmmm...probably that darn corner bed! I make it look pretty with lots of decorative pillows!

Best: Lazy Sunday project with no artificial completion deadline.

Worst: Lazy Sunday project with friends/families expectations projected on it...

Everything after "it make take another 40 years to call it finished" might as well be spoken in Minoan Linear A...

How to explain I'd likely be doing many of these things even a day out of warranty?

The best gift my hubby got me was a 34 footer this year, and the time we have spent in it. so ready for may to come.

The worst is to have 2 Airstreams and unable to use either one at this time, due to the cold. Cold please go away and bring summer back fast.

I love my awnings on all sides - especially when it is cool and a light rain with the windows open, the fresh air coming in, hearing the rain and not getting wet. I just wish the big awning was automatic - can't put it up or down by myself.

kswelsh, you most probably know Zip Dee has a new power awning retrofit kit now. $$$$$ but it's pretty slick.

I know about the power awning - the Airstream Rep was at our dealer in April and told us about it; however, the cost oye yey - not in our budget

The best is yet to come

As it has already been said (for us) the best is yet to come. Henrietta is still being worked on and we have not gone anywhere in it and have owned her just over a year. In a couple of weeks we take our first outing to 4CU Lost Dutchman gathering. It will be safe, and towable but not really camp worthy. We will camp in it anyway because if we wait until its closer to done it could be a long time. Thrilled that we accomplished a bucket list goal of owning a Vintage Airstream, lightly obsessed with it since then and looking forward to all the adventures and making more of life's precious memories.
