When the traveler is ready, the Airstream will appear....

After several years of reading/dreaming/looking/waiting/wanting (and replacing both knees and both shoulders with Titanium versions) we found ourselves faced with an opportunity today we couldn't pass up...a 2008 19' International Ocean Breeze advertised in the local paper. We called, and a couple hours later we were shaking hands on a deal to buy the trailer. Just seemed like it was supposed to happen. Hope we don't find out otherwise.

Looks wonderful. Now what is the plan for the shakedown trip? Interstate, intrastate, down the road, around the park, over to the lake, up the river, or the big one with all the buckets on the first trip?

Post a picture on the April picture thread. That certainly looks like a bucket list item checked off.

Travel safe and enjoy the new coach. Pat

I’m a believer in things happening for a reason, and that [insert your personal belief] will put things in your life when you’re ready. Congratulations on your your acquisition; may it bring you many years of joy.

Aha! Sounds like us. Retirement in 2017 gave us the time to travel. Plan to be at UrbanAir in Logan, Ohio. Lots of AS and owners to share experiances.

I, too, feel that when one is ready, the necessary tool, person, or objective shows itself. Here's to the start of something new! Congratulations!!
