bugsy and a frozen waterfall in devil's den state park

Three days in Fayetteville, AR

I was surprised at how much I liked Fayetteville, not having really known much about it going in. We had mostly considered it a base from which to do some hiking in the Ozarks, but in addition to that, from...

Airstream Living: Organization

(That picture is from when we loaded our new Airstream for our first trip, two years ago!) This time of year, everyone is interested in organization and streamlining their homes, right? Those concepts are especially important when you live in...

Two days in Medicine Park, OK

We learned about Medicine Park from one of the million “best small town” lists we’ve read over the last couple years for Airstream trip planning purposes. The tiny, historic resort town is making a comeback from being down on its...

Bugsy on a buffalo in Abilene

One day in Abilene, TX

When plotting the route for this trip, we had some definite destinations that needed to be connected by unknown intermediate points. Abilene was one such point, chosen because it has a few breweries and a campground not too far from...

Bugsy at Terlingua Jail

One day in Terlingua, TX

How do I describe Terlingua… It’s famous for its annual chili cookoff–which is actually two competing cookoffs, and one giant party–every November. It’s a tiny ghost town in the desert with nightly live music and delicious margaritas. It’s a surprising...

Three days in Big Bend National Park

Bugsy on Hancock Hill in Alpine

Two days in Alpine, TX

West Texas is a really unique and wonderful place. It’s hard to describe the culture–kind of artsy hippie meets the Wild West–and the physical setting is otherworldly. On our big trip two years ago, we stayed a few days in...

One day in Fredericksburg, TX (visit #2)

Three days in Nashville (visit #2)

After we took the Airstream to Nashville last Spring, we knew we wanted to return for the food, drink, and fun, all with easy access from a campground in the middle of town, a rarity in a big city. We...
