"A" is for Airstream

One might think that writing a blog is easy. I can sometimes find it a challenge to focus on a single topic since I often have so many ideas. To simplify I decided to use the alphabet as the foundation for guiding what I would write about in my blog.

Hence we begin with the letter 

"A" is for Airstream

Lately I've been spending a lot of time daydreaming about what life would be like traveling the continent in an Airstream trailer with Robin and the dogs. For several years we have been wanting to plan a roadtrip across Canada and the U.S. with no schedule and no itinerary - living in the present, guided by intuition and spontaneity - a magical mystery tour.


So the story goes like this. We travel where the road leads us shopping for cool vintage treasures which we then sell on our online Camp Ho-Ba-Chee shop. The perfect way to combine our travel adventure with our business dream. In our modern wireless world this dream is VERY possible and VERY appealing.

The Airstream would be our dream home away from home. The model I love and see us in is very swank, modern, and sophisticated - a perfect fit for my current mid mod leanings. With heat, air, shower, queen size bed, luxury appliances, tv, internet, a dining area doubling as an office, and on top of that an incredible panoramic view - all of this tastefully crammed into 25 feet.

Pictured above is the model we want. It's Airstreams "International" Designer Series by Christopher Deam. If you're interested here is a link to a Ted Talk where Christopher speaks about redesigning the Airstream.
We have this same photo on our visualization board - so stay tuned!
