Nice Lumatic! Being claustrophobic I will only ever see the insides of these caves from pictures. Nice to see a destination from NM!!

This is not an entry, (it might be a bit declasse to compete in my own competition) but I'd have to enter the Owl Cafe as my NM (San Antonio) entry - best green chili cheeseburger, although I have been told by others that there are other great places as well.

Great entry, Lumatic, thank you. I'll bet that water is less than 80 degrees.

So Idaho looks like a cool place to go. Apparently there is nothing worth seeing in California, Oregon or Washington?? There must be some awesome places your Airstream has taken you folks...?

How about Glenn's Falls in the finger lakes of New York? Daisy and I enjoyed a walk around a vineyard with a great view of the valley. That's the first pic. The second is what some kind fellow campers left behind at the local KOA to share with our mascot :-)

Here goes Oregon. On the Oregon Trail.

Well, my apologies for butchering your former town's name :-)

And love the pic from the trail!

Nothing says "vineyard" like a bottle of Andre Champagne.

Nice to see the double-wide from the Oregon Trail!

OK, another "not an entry".

On a recent drive we saw those wind farms and decided to see just how big they are.

There are two photos, one with me standing at the base, and one with our TV and Airstream. These things are BIG! I estimate they stand about 250 feet tall, and the housing unit at the center of the three blades is probably about the size of two 34 Classics side by side. You could fit an Airstream inside the base if you stood it on end (we did not attempt, just my estimate - my bride rejected my idea to try).

Got any interesting places you have been with your Airstream you care to share?

2013 Albuquerque balloon fiesta rally

This experience needs two pictures. Mid-last week I towed the FC to Grayland Beach State Park on the Washington coast the day after two major storms battered the ocean beaches. Both pictures were shot at Midway Beach, between Tokeland and Grayland Washington, two small mid-coastal towns. The first picture was mid-day as the storm clouds began to break up with lots of standing water from the heavy rains. The clouds scattered during the day and gathered on the horizon at sunset (about 6:30 p.m.).

Stunning. Absolutely stunning. Make me be there.

And, BTW, nice to see representative pictures from Washington state!

Darth lurking. Tell me the ALB Balloon Fiesta should not be on EVERYONE's bucket list. Our first time, and what an amazing event. Great pic!!

Nutha nottah entry.

Russell Pond campground in the White Mountain National Forest in or near Lincoln, NH not far from the western end of the Kancamagus Highway. Camped (boon docked) when we had our 34', which was a wee bit of a stretch. Just gorgeous, remote, private, quiet.

Just trying to get the juices flowing. Where has your Airstream taken you?

The river is the Hoaquim River in Hoaquim WA right next to the campground. The other picture was our destination for lunch at the Roosevelt Lodge and Lake Quinalt in the Olympic rain forest. If you want to know why they call it a rain forest, one look at the totem pole on the lodge, which doubles as a rain fall indicator, and you will see for 2012 (we were there during the summer of 2013) the annual rain fall was 14.5 FEET, (yes Feet), and that is why it is a rain forest.

These are a couple of shots taken in July 2013 in Yellowstone. We were staying at the KOA in West Yellowstone and driving into the park each day.
