Christmas in the Airstream!
 
Is anyone else obsessed enough to spend Christmas in their Airstream? This is a first for us. We will spend 3 nights and 4 days in ours at San Antonio Lake(North Shore) in central California.

We will spend the day kayaking on the lake, cooking a standing rib roast with all the fixins, and will watch the Christmas Story DVD...got to watch the kid shoot his eye out:p .

We have an 18" christmas tree for inside the AS, a wreath for the door, and lights galore! Of course a nice warm fire be invilved and good friends to help spread the cheer!

Can't wait!

I got my '04 Safari on December 17th. Though we didn't spend Christmas in it, we did welcome the new year 2005 in it. :)

:) Hi, Slowolf. Enjoy your Airstream Christmas. We have not yet been able to do this yet due to work and vacation times. My wife just retired and I am at home temperarally handi-capped due to surgery. So a mental picture of your Airstream Christmas will be as close as we will get, But for those who join you, I would love to see pictures of your decorated Airstreams.

Almost
 
I will have ours in the driveway. Then , day after Xmas or so I will drive it over to the campground at the Coast Guard base in Petaluma. I plan on spending the rest of the holidays there (wife has to work - her job is on base).

Christmas in Lucy
 
We will be spending Christmas in Lucy. We are headed to Jacksonville on Wednesday (12/20). We will set Lucy up in Daddy's back yard (where we have full hook-ups) and stay there until the 27th.

Christmas home, but NEW YEARS!!!!!!!
 
New Years is quickly getting to be a AS Holiday. Last year we went to Carlesbad and stayed a week. Weather in the 70's daytime and low 40's at night - nice and cozy in our AS!!! LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!

This NewYears is shapeing up to be a trip to SilverCity NM - supposed to be a great ARTSY town. THe Gila Cliff Dwellings Monument is there also. Average temps in the high 50's/low 60's and then in the 40's overnight.

Any other destinations that folks have planed for this time of year?

Christmas and the New Year!
 
Yes! We will be spending Christmas and the New Year in our Airstream. We have been planning this trip quite some time and looking forward to spending time away (doing anything but work).

We will be attending a college bowl game in Birmingham, ALA (Go Bulls!) and then going to Bellingrath Gardens in Mobile, ALA.

Even though we will be out of town for Christmas we plan to continue our tradition of having Chinese for dinner (think Christmas story... Fah, Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah...) and going to a movie - probably Charlotte's Web

We envy you all - up here, we're winterized and will not use ours until April.:( We probably won't see the sun until May! We WILL, however, be using our SofTub a lot until then!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!:)

Sounds like fun! We are obsessed enough to spend New Years Eve in our Airstream this year.

AirBus is in the shop today getting the genset working properly. We will be heading out to Grandma and Grampa's house in the Twin Cities on Christmas morning with ten of us aboard. Regretably, we have to return that night as I have to open the jewelry store bright and early on the 26th. It should be a better trip than the last quickie when the coach batteries died at 3 in the morning leaving me with no heat in 10 degree weather.
Ah, the fun of learning the quirks of a new old coach.
New batteries, clean connections and a running genset should make for a great trip.
Now, what else can go wrong....... DON'T ANSWER THAT!!!:santa:

Cindy and I want to wish all of you a blessed Merry Christmas. May all your travels be safe and all your loved ones be well.

Jacksonville, Florida. I pick her up the 22nd and will be spending Christmas at my sister's in her driveway.

Christmas in middle TN with family then off to Padre Island National Seashore for New Years. :)

I'm more than a little jealous of those of you who get to spend Christmas (or New Years) in your Airstream. I would find that infinitely preferable to spending the day at the in-laws...:rolleyes:

Have a great time everyone!
