Maiden Flight

My family and I recently purchased our first RV a 2000 34' Limited. We're currently on our maiden voyage and thought I'd post a couple shots.

We live in western North Carolina and headed to Pensacola, FL for our first trip. Since I'm retired military we're staying at NAS Pensacola's Oak Grove Campground and is located a couple hundred yards from the beach and within a mile of the Blue Angels hangar.

On our way here we dropped off my Honda Ridgeline to the owner that bought it off eBay so I could buy my new 08 F250.

So far things have been going great!

Included is a shot my wife took from the Ridgeline and the rest are self explanatory!

BTW there were 3 other Airstreams in the park too!

Very nice can be proud of both your service and your Airstream. Keep posting your adventures.

Travel is in my blood, adventure is my passport, aluminum is my favorite construction medium, and therefore, an Airstream was my destiny.
