We're calling him a Gnomingo.

Before we had a camper, Iíd gotten a flamingo for my daughterís bedroom as a silly decoration: was there throughout high school, then got taken down and put away. Then we got a camper: she gifted it back to me. On this particular trip, a little girl across from us would come over and pet the flamingoÖ

We had a tiny one placed on our Tundra bumper overnight while camping at Sun Outdoors Ocean City back in September.

We stopped by my wife's grandmother's house to show her our new Airstream and the flamingoes in her yard lined up to see it, so it's clearly a thing. Click image for larger version

Well, we are about to embark on our 3rd camping trip with our new 2022 Globetrotter 27 FB Twin. The first 3 trips were sort of our shakedown cruises and were pretty short.

This next trip is our first real Airstream adventure. We are heading West from our Dallas location, visiting Utah and Northern AZ and NM along the way (with a brief stop in far SW Colorado too. We'll be gone for 6 weeks! We plan to alternate between boondocking and RV parks.

So ... We figured it was time to add a couple of fellow travelers to our campsites in honor of our first real Airstream adventure.

Meet our latest friends. They are still in their, uh ... "protective enclosure", LOL.
Soon they will be set free!!

Ugh. Sorry for the rotated photo.

We are on our first big adventure in our new Globetrotter 27fb twin. 6 week trip from Dallas to CO, NM, AZ, and Utah.

Our small flock of 2 desert pink flamingos has been unleashed into the wild for the first time.

They seem to be sticking close to the Airstream though :-)
