One thing leads to another...

Once upon a time (actually about 3-1/2 years ago), a grandfather set out in his Airstream and landed in southern Utah. He later convinced his son to move out there too. Now the grandfather gets to see his grandson grow up in Utah.

Cool. I don't have any grandchildren, but I can't imagine anything more fun than taking them camping.

I'll bet both of them have some up close memories that will last a lifetime...for kids, being able to explore the great outdoors is a good thing.

Awesome! Thanks so much for sharing.

Having a grandchild is a wonderful blessing and being able to share such experiences are making memories for him he will never forget!

I am so incredibly jealous! You brought me to tears. My four grandchildren live in two separate states from me. I miss them so much. I still have two adult sons here, and the perfect rent situation for our animals and the Airstream on 5 acres of land for a very small price, (living on a VA disability). They tried CO and decided they were definitely CA boys. One is married, I just have to be patient waiting for grandchildren Meanwhile I will live on photos, videos, phone calls and the occasional visit.

Thank you for sharing that Westcoastas. ❤️ You are indeed a blessed man.

Beautiful. My grandson is 18 months and I can't wait for the day when we go on our first AS trip together (sans parents).
