Bugsy on Black Balsam Knob

Eight days in Asheville, NC (visit #4)

Yes, we took the Airstream to Asheville again! Are you tired of hearing about Asheville? Because I have more to say about it. I plan to do a quick overview of this eight day trip, and then a separate (more...

Bugsy and Elvis in Nashville

Six days in Nashville, TN

Hello! While we’ve been living full-time in the Airstream near Charlottesville, VA, we’ve tried to keep from feeling too cooped up by moving our house somewhere different for several days once a month. After our big January trip to Austin, the trips have...

Five days in Asheville, NC (visit #3)

We love Asheville. Have I mentioned that? This was our third and longest visit, and it has officially become our long weekend getaway destination of choice, for the reasonable driving distance from our base in Central VA, the delicious beer and food scene,...

Eight days in Austin, TX

We loved Austin so much! I have too many words to type about the city and all the eating, drinking, and exploring that we did, so I’m breaking the Austin report into three separate posts to address each category of...

airstream at tom sawyer's campground memphis

Two days in Memphis

Campground Tom Sawyer’s RV Park appealed to us for two reasons: it’s the closest we found online to downtown Memphis (we did drive by a closer one in West Memphis with far less character), and from your riverfront site you...

36 hours in Asheville, NC (visit #2)

We love Asheville! Despite being sick, we still managed to visit a few new breweries (and one old favorite), and of course we ate tacos. The scene around downtown on New Year’s Eve was festive and fun, but instead of reveling we took...
