Nice; I climbed Engineer Peak many years ago. Durango is one of my favorite places. Francisco, The Palace, and Gardenswartch Sporting Goods.

I have 50 Amp service and use the sewer clean out for the sewer in our backyard. I run the cable out there also.

Our daughter lived in teh trailer for 6 months after her horse accident (horse threw her, foot caught in stirrup, dragged her down the road. Luckily she had on a helmet)... still no sense of taste or smell.

Funny thing is when I redid the trailer the sewer vent pipe came undone behind the closet and the trailer always had a 'sewer' odor, especially after dumping the black water.

It was almost enough to make us sell the trailer until an airstream buddy told me what the problem was..... luckily Sara couldn't smell it.

Now, the trailer is just as good as new!

The FaN is a lot more than an occasional travel trailer. You could say it has always "earned its keep."

Now it's the driveway "corporate headquarters" for my start-up company.

Driveway "Happy Hour"

Baseball sized hail is forecast for this weekend (south central Montana) so we decided to party/camp in the driveway and make a sprint for the garage when the storms hit.

I have too! I loved to just relax in it and putter just yards from the house.

Also.....

Airstream in the Driveway napping, paying music, recording music.

The dogs love the Airstream, but I think it's because they associate it with quality time and meat.

Driveway camping comes in handy if you have crazy work hours.

There's also emergency driveway camping

A couple of years ago we woke up on Saturday morning of the three-day July 4th weekend only to realize the house air conditioner had failed. Of course, the people who could fix it answered their phone with a recording.

We pulled the Airstream out of storage, parked it in the driveway (fortunately we'd just installed a 30 amp outlet for it), and camped there. AC service people showed up on Tuesday and came back with the part on Wednesday.

Four days in the hot Texas sun. The Airstream kept us nice and comfortable. Great test for the new AC we'd just installed on the trailer.

Oh, and we also use it as a guest house when our daughter and her kids come to visit.

Our A/C just went out at the house on Sunday too. It was 100 degrees during the day, but luckily it went out right at dark and the temperature had cooled. Thankfully, it has only hit a high of 80 over the past couple days as we wait for the repairman. It's comforting to know the Airstream with the A/C is right there if it gets hot and we need it!

Two Airstreams camping, a driveway rally doth make!

Yard camp

Always have to park out by the Wife's flowers for a week or two this time of year. **Husbands please note how Wife is always capitalized.

Just got done camping at our church. Cheapest camp out ever! I pulled the airstream about 100 yards, since I live next door to the church. Just like camping in my own driveway. Wish I had taken a pic or two to share. No shame in driveway camping.
