Well, since I have nothing exciting to post since the only thing going on around here is snow, I am just going to ramble about my lifelong dream of owning an Airstream. Since the first time I laid eyes on an Airstream I've wanted one. I love vintage things and so these trailers are right up my alley. I also love being free and able to go wherever I want and a trailer is very conducive to a gypsy lifestyle. But please, I don't want to sound too whitetrash. Airstreams are the Cadillacs of travel trailers so it adds a hint of class...maybe. Either way, I love them and I want one.
Corey has been a little hard to convince that this is something we absolutely need. Maybe it was the all the snow or the hours upon hours of being trapped inside that has made him sway an inch or two over into my world? But, this weekend he said, "Ok Carrie, when do you think you want to get an Airstream?" After I peed a little I said, "Maybe in about 4 years." To this he said, "That sounds reasonable."
Marriage is all about breaking the other person's resistance down to get what you want. He's had a tough will for a while but somehow the incessant nagging has broken his spirit and he now wants an Airstream! We want an Airstream! Ok, so I realize this is still mainly MY dream, but I'm very excited that he's at least indulging my dreams and giving me hope.
So, what are we going to do in our Airstream? Just travel the United States and see everything! Spend a month driving up the West Coast, a week or two at Yellowstone, camp in the Smokey Mountains. Definitely see Mt. Rushmore, visit as many National Forests as possible, canoe in as many lakes as we can, Zion National Park, Goblin Valley, the Grand Canyon. Do I really need to go on? I love traveling outside of the US but I would really love to not ever have to deal with another airport so I think I'll give the Airstream a try for a while. After 4 years of international travel.
