I see a new travel thread beginning called:

Globie Goes Glamping

Has kind of a nice ring to it, but I am sure that the moderator will be moving it over to the On The Road forums soon.

Ya Dirigible, we were making up all kinds of GL words on our dog walk- currently looking for glampgrounds for Globie. What else is an Airstream for if not glamping? Ours is currently in our driveway, after a day of working on it and an evening of cocktails and music...

Yeah, I'm working on my Safari, getting ready for spring, with a trip to Yellowstone in the offing this July. I can't wait for a few shorter trips between now and then.

That sounds great, I'd love to hit some of the big parks inland. We're headed out in a few days, down the coast to San Simeon for a long weekend.

Ha, no doubt! During my renovation I've painstakingly applied beautiful ribbon-striped mahogany veneer, and polished countless feet of aluminum.

And then for at least one week per year, I park it directly on the beach and watch my 5-year-old and 3-year-old beat the heck out of it!

Sometimes I think I should have just pulled the entire interior, rhino-lined it, put a drain in the middle, and hose it down after every use. I have no idea how those folks caravanned from Capetown to Cairo so many years ago, I can't imagine how much dirt I could collect in my trailer doing the same thing.

I like the floor drain idea. When I pulled down the belly pan, there was an inch of dirt there, probably from unpaved roads. I bet the trailers got dirty going from Capetown to Cairo. BTW, an elderly lady who parks her MoHo in the spot next to my trailer was telling me about that very same Airstream trip, in 1959, planned to go but didn't make it. She drove her war surplus Jeep to Baja the next year instead.

We find dust from Burning Man throughout the year. Our goal in our renovation is a durable, cleanable surface. It is a trailer, after all. The laser cut backlit flamingo in the bathroom is just icing.

I was liking the vessel mounted lav sink. Durable and cleanable are the two tests I put materials through before I use them in work projects, and for the trailer. I like to see how much abuse a material can take before it cracks/bends/stains/catches fire. I figure stuff should be easy to keep looking good for a long time, no fussy materials (any more) for me.

To Modern South

I'm "all in" for a glamping trip. I love the Airstream community because, as a solo traveler (okay, so my dog is the perfect ice breaker) I never feel alone when out on the road. I have a great home life, with the exception of a hubby who doesn't camp. So, I glamp. With his hunting dog. I'm in mid-Michigan and if you ever put together a rally, count me in! Love air forums and all the folks I "meet". Kelly

P.S. Will be at Alumapalooza this year! 16' DWR Bambi.

This may be common knowledge in the glamping world, but new to me. I recently discovered an Australian magazine "Vintage Caravan Magazine". Glam ping with a down under slant. I found the current issue on eBay. Past issues and subscriptions are available on their web site.

Mellen60, I've seen forum rallies in Illinois, and I'm sure there are some in MI. If not, you could post a meet up and probably find others who would join you. Camping with others is great fun and with other Airstreamers, you always find something to talk about.
