Airstream Time

Exploring North America in an Airstream

A New Adventure

Starting a new adventure, we bought a beautiful 2014 25′ Airstream Flying Cloud. My name is Greg and my wife is Martha. At this point I am much more anxious to get going and I could stay on the road for a very long time. Martha is more cautious, but has given us two years to travel. The first trip begins the end of the month, and the plan is to explore eastern Canada. There are eleven national parks in that area and eight drives listed in National Geographic’s Drives of a Lifetime. Martha has given us about four months for this trip, so we will return home for Thanksgiving, and hopefully we will get back on the road in February. She told me a little break would be OK, since that will be duck hunting season.

There are many things to do to get ready. I’m sure when we leave, we will discover things we forgot to do or things we didn’t take along. In 2013 my best friend, Kelly, and I bought a 2005 30′ Classic and drove across Canada for four months on an incredible fishing trip. It was a great adventure, and we wrote a blog at http://www.fishacrosscanada.com. Kelly has written a book about it, called If the Fish are Bitin‘,which will be published soon. We had a few essential things we don’t have on this trip, the main one being solar power. Three awnings to shade the windows and keep the rain out were nice. Five more feet doesn’t sound like much, but it’s all storage. What we gained is better maneuverability and not so much weight to pull.

I could go on, but you probably aren’t interested in the details. I hope you will come along and join us for the ride. I’ll try to take some good pictures and show you some beautiful sights and interesting places. I love the comments people made on our previous blog. Don’t be shy, we would all love to hear your thoughts and quips, or if nothing else just to know you are there, and I’m not just talking to myself.
