I am getting ready to leave again to wander the country and ever since I stepped into an airstream for the first time a few weeks ago, I can't seem to get it off of my mind. They are so beautiful and shiny! I love my little teardrop trailer, "trailie" but standing up in my favorite Ocean Breeze International Airstream 16 foot trailer is something I won't soon forget. I love it.
I think it would be great to own a beautiful piece of land where I can set up vintage trailers and Airstreams so people can come and live the trailer life for the weekend, a week or a month. No need to own one, just have a similar dream of living in one and to give it a try. Each trailer would have a different theme to it. I've seen a few parks around that are like this but I think there is always room for more! Ahhh, that would be a wonderful life.
I am going to roam around in my tent this year and will continue thinking about my dream. I know that similar people have the airstream dream and I know of one who made her dream a reality. When I wrote about my experience traveling with the ladies and their airstreams, I received a letter from Jennifer that read:
"I love your photography, and wanted to let you know what happened after you posted those amazing photos of Airstreams a few weeks ago. They've had quite an effect on my husband's and my life!
I first saw that set of photos on a Saturday morning, while my hubby was out on a long bike ride. I was not only blown away by your amazing photography, but was reminded of how much I LOVE Airstreams.
My main thought was, "Someday…." And then I thought, "Why someday? Why not now?!" I couldn't think of a good reason why not. And I could think of a long list of reasons why an Airstream is actually the perfect thing for us, right now. When my husband got home, I suggested we drive to the closest Airstream dealer (an hour away). Fortunately he was totally game, and we went that afternoon.
Flash forward three weeks: We are now the proud owners of a 19' Airstream, as well as a new truck to tow it with! I am SO psyched and cannot wait to hit the road with it. We're going to start out with weekend trips first, but hope to do a long trip this summer as well.
And it all began because of your photos! I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the inspiration. And I think maybe the Airstream dealer owes you a commission. :-)"
Good for you Jennifer! Way to go! Let's all get out there and realize our dreams, no matter what they are. Time is the only thing we are losing. Anyone have a campground for sale?
