Hello From Tom and Michele

Hello All,

Tom and Michele here from Hyde Park, NY. We just bought a new AS FC RBT and we love it. We're both retired from the National Park Service with a combined 73 years of service. We are so looking forward to getting on the road and traveling. We have grandkids in NH, CT, NJ, and NC, the AS is the perfect way to get around and visit them. We're also looking forward to meeting and joining other AS'ers on the road and at events. We're not winter campers so we won't be going anywhere for a few months but we're planning our first trip in March to NC.

See you on the road,
Tom and Michele

Congrats!

My mom grew up in Hyde Park, and my grandparents lived most of their lives there. It’s a beautiful part of the country.

Welcome!

Welcome Tom and Michele to the Airstream Community and Forums!

I’ll second foobar’s “Thank You” for taking care of our National Parks. They are our #1 favorite places to visit. How exciting for you both to now be able to be “guests” and not working there.

Your Airstream really is the perfect way to visit grandkids, take them along and enjoy your retirement!

See you down the road,
Jeff & Caryle

Hello Tom and Michelle, and welcome to the forum and the AS community.

If you want to meet other AS'ers and attend events I would suggest you join the AS Club (airstream club.org). We have made great friends thru the club and at events. Like our dear friends Jeff and Caryle in the post right above mine.

All the best on your retirement and travel plans!

Welcome!

March in NC might qualify as winter camping. Last March south of Atlanta we had many straight nights of 20s and many days that didn't rise above freezing.

Hans627, thanks, I checked out the site and they seem very active. We'll join. I also joined the Northeast Mountaineers Airstream Club.

Thanks for the link.
