January catch up

Wow, just a little gap in posts here.

Some major happenings since July:
  • Picked up my Airstream from Camper Reparadise mid-July
  • Two local trips in the Wasatch Mountains in mid to late July, including five nights at one of my all-time favorite RV campsites, which will remain unnamed here
  • An Airstream trip to Stanley, Idaho to see my sister, nephew, and Lisa (a friend)
  • Another to Casper, Wyoming for the solar eclipse where I had a world-class boondocking spot. The eclipse was damn cool. We were in the path of totality. 
  • A reconnecting trip with the Airstream community when I went to Mesa Verde National Park for a Four Corners Unit rally of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International (the Airstream club) over Labor Day
  • Then I lost my Airstreaming steam, I think that was my last trip of the year
  • Did some fun other travel, both personal and work--especially New York and L.A.
  • Had a not-so-great trip to Canada over the Christmas to New Year holiday, crazy cold and other things. It was my first time to Banff. It was -40 F many nights and subzero until the last two days when it peeked above zero. No Airstream on that trip. 
  • And . . . decided to sell my Airstream!
I love it, but it still needs work and I hit my limit on putting money into it. It looks like I've found a nice new home for it! Sure hope so. 

And the coolest thing of all . . . in October I helped rescue a tyrannosaur! Read more about that here.

The final shot of my 1962 Airstream Safari. It's headed to a new home. Our time together ended up being brief, but I loved it. It was also an important step for me toward the road of becoming a recovering Airstreamer. I still love them, but my fixation is maybe a bit more healthy now.
