Nice pics.

Looks a like cozy way to spend Thanksgiving.

Really nice picture. The snow outside is an especially nice touch.

For the first time, we spent Thanksgiving on our Airstream. We wanted to go out "one more time" - we weren't ready to put it away for the winter. We headed for southern Indiana along the Ohio River. Nice campground - space for 160 trailers - we were the ONLY one there. Sure makes for quiet evenings. Used the propane furnace for heat with a couple of back up oil filled radiators. They kept the edge off at night and then we'd turn on the furnace early in the a.m. to warm the place up. Worked wonders - we were never cold even though the outside temp. did get down to 21 degrees. We visited museums, old homes and mansions plus art galleries. Neat old towns along the river - Vevay, Madison and Aurora to name a couple we visited. And, of course, each one of them has their own casino (Lawrenceb'g, Aurora, Rising Sun, and near the Markland Locks). That's the one we lost $2 to the slots - reckless DW.

We went to a State Park Lodge for dinner - so much food. Discovered we failed to take along enough Rolaids and Tums for afterwards. Sure relaxing - watching football games without being concerned about work around the house. We had a grand time. Awoke the day after Thanksgiving to snow covered ground. We managed to get packed up and headed back to sunny, warm Ohio. Discovered it was neither sunny nor warm but we were glad to be back and able to put the AS away for the winter. It was sure fun being out "one more time" and I would guess we'll do it again next year.

Thank you so much! I do have a twitter page it is Just 5 More Minutes (J5MM) on Twitter

Pilgrim -- glad you had such a beautiful trip for your last time before winterizing. You described your trip so well I felt like I was there! Thanks also for the mention of the oil filled radiators -- I will need to get myself one of those.

You're a woman after my own heart! I so enjoyed your pictures and captions. Thanks for sharing! We have a 2010 25FB International Serenity that we just bought in July. It is such a pleasure to be out in it. We can't keep it at our house, and it's already been winterized and I really miss it!!! Can't wait for spring!

I really enjoyed looking through your blog. How did the countertop space work out on Thanksgiving - did you have enough?

Great website. The picture of your early morning visitor would be a great addition to the "View From Your Airstream Door" thread.

Wow, I am honestly flattered with all of your beautiful comments. Being outdoors and exploring our beautiful country (so far, only a couple trips) brings me so much happiness and documenting it makes it all the more fun.

I apologize for not mentioning how big that turkey was -- he was 10 pounds and fit in the oven very nicely. A bigger turkey would have fit nicely too, maybe up 15 pounds I am guessing? It was honestly the best turkey I have ever made (and so far, I've made 19 turkeys, but who's counting? lol)

The countertop space works so well for preaing meals in our Safari. I will make sure to take pictures of the entire space on my next cooking adventure. We have double sinks and on one side there is an additional counter that is a drop down counter. It comes in handy but honestly I haven't really used it except as a "cocktail station" when we had some friends over, lol.

Hubby wanted to winterize her but I was adament that we don't. I couldn't imagine being without her during winter (we have CC&R's too that restrict keeping a trailer in the driveway -- but we still bring her home for a week or so here and there and the neighbors don't say much except "wow, an Airstream, you guys know how to live!" lol). Right now she about 3 hours away from us and is plugged in with mini heaters running and furnace is set to 55 when we are away and we pay a monthly rent to keep her where she is at. The propane will last at that temperature for about 2 weeks. Temps around here don't get very low, but we did have a rare record breaking snow/wind storm where temps did drop down into the low teens so that was a bit nerve wrecking. Luckily our furnace is ducted so when it runs and heats the inside, it also blows warm air on the pipes so they don't freeze (and we keep the water heater on too to keep things warm under there).

Thanks again so much for your compliments, it means so much to me.
