It's always nice to have another traveling friend on the road the same time you are on the road, especially when you cross paths on the way. I was lucky enough to be able to coordinate a visit with Kristiana on her way heading West, while I am currently headed East.
We decided to meet in Sioux Falls, South Dakota at their beautiful Motel 6. She didn't have one of her 5 Airstream trailers with her and was traveling without camping equipment so it was a nice break for Max and I to stay in a luxurious hotel (for us anyway).
I haven't seen her since Alumnapalooza so we had a lot of catching up to do. It was a first time visit with Max and her dog, Osa and they did so well together! Kristiana and I have become close friends ever since I decided to meet up with the Silver Sisters last March. The silver sisters are a group of women that meet twice a year camping with their Airstream, or in my case...my silver teardrop trailer. It's a weekend of ditching the husband and kids (if you have them) to bond with other women with a common love for Airstreams or as the sisters say, "all things shiny."
If you are a woman, in the Southwest area and have a silver trailer, you should join the unofficial group! They have meet ups on the Air Forums and you can see what they are up to by clicking HERE. It's a confusing site so don't be upset if you don't get it right away. Their next gathering is in September.
Anyway, I am so happy that I was able to meet up with Kristiana on my travels. The last two photographs are from Alumnapalooza when I did a photo shoot with her. She designs beautiful jewelry (I wear my bird necklace every day on this journey) that you can purchase HERE.
Max and I are refreshed from our visit and on the road again headed East...
