Wind…

Today we have been fighting 27 mile per hour winds on Interstate 5 in California. Lots of cross winds on the highway means we’re taking it slowly and carefully.

We’re expecting to be at the campground around four this afternoon.

Week in review…

We departed Vegas a week ago for Mesa, AZ to attend a book selling event.

Arizona was nice, it was good to hang out with Damian and Apple as well as see people at the convention – but the convention itself was a bit lackluster compared to prior years…

Green Acres RV Park was nice, but tight. Every available space was filled.

We’re now in a lovely RV Park in Palm Springs, California bringing our trip to twenty-eight states visited so far.

Back on the road…

We’ve been back in Vegas for nine days and have cleaned and refilled the Airstream for travel again. Today we depart for Phoenix to attend a convention and hopefully sell some books. After that we’re heading up the pacific coast for my day job, then back to Vegas.

Once back in Vegas for a few days the travel continues, but by plane. While Sean will be heading to Minnesota, I’ll be heading to Boston. Then we both meet up for two weeks in Vegas as friends come to visit before heading out to Chicago in December.

It’s going to be a crazy couple of weeks.

Change of Plans…

Given that there is now snow falling in Denver and more on the mountains we’ve decided to change course and head south through Oklahoma and Texas to get back to Vegas.

Our plan is to get back to Vegas sometime in the middle of next week, do maintenance, and hit the road bound for Phoenix, Palm Springs, Fresno, Delano, and maybe some travel to Portland, OR…

Back on the road!

Or on the road again…

Today we left the Airstream Campus and made our way south to King’s Island for a day of roller coasters, fried food, and fun!

It was all of that and more.

After that it was time to hit the road, leave Ohio, and make camp just outside of Indianapolis. The KOA is amazingly nice!

Now to cook dinner and relax!

Airstream Factory Day One – Warranty Repair

So today we pulled into the Airstream Factory to have some fit and finish warranty work done. They did everything I asked them except for one vent and one window. We’ll have the local dealership tend to those when we get back.

The factory is huge!

We are staying in B2 – the red dot!

Tomorrow we are taking the Factor Tour to see what goes into building one of these units. I’m looking forward to it!

Current Progress by Map

Back on the road!

After a lovely time with my mother we are back on the road. As of today we have visited 21 states (see map below) and still have a few more to go along the route home.

Tomorrow we are pushing towards the Airstream Factory to not only take a factory tour (as we did at The Rouge where our F150 was built) but to make an appointment for some warranty repair work. We are dipping down so that we cross into Virginia and West Virginia before entering Ohio.

After our appointment and tour we’ll be heading over to King’s Dominion to visit the third Cedar Fair park of the trip (fifth of the year, that Season Pass is getting it’s workout this year). Then it’s onto visit a friend in Saint Louis, another in the greater Kansas City, MO are, then off to the biggest ball of Twine in the country.

After twine ball number two, we’ll either visit friends in Denver, or cut down directly to Santa Fe, it’s still up in the air…
