    Trip planning: Asheville NC and Fayetteville WV

    This planning post was for a trip to Asheville and Fayetteville in September 2019. …but our ultimate destination isn’t either of those places. It’s our Airstream’s old home Misty Mountain Camp Resort in Crozet, VA, for the Misty Mountain Music Festival, a weekend of Virginia performers and local food, beer, and crafts. This will be…

  • Catch-up: we took the Airstream to Maine–Acadia Loop trip

    Catch-up: we took the Airstream to Maine–Acadia Loop trip

    We visited Maine in May 2019. It took me 7 months to finish writing about Big Trip #2; hopefully I’ll be quicker to write about our next, much shorter trip. In May, we took the Airstream up to Acadia National Park in Maine! I wrote about our general plans early in the researching process here,…

    Big Trip #2: Retrospective

    Big Trip #2 was in Fall of 2018; you should also read about Big Trip #1 in 2016, Big Trip #3 in 2020, and Big Trip #4 in 2022! Our final stop on Big Trip #2 was Asheville for one night, but I already listed our activities there on the Big Trip #2 Catch-up post,…

    Asheville, NC hiking index

    Read our many Asheville posts here! Hello! This is not a normal trip recap or planning post, sorry. We’re heading to our favorite quickie Airstream destination, Asheville, next weekend to meet our favorite people from Atlanta (who let us park the Airstream in their driveway when we visit)–but without the Airstream (gasp!) and without Bugsy…

    Trip planning: Acadia National Park

    This is the planning post for this trip to Acadia in May 2019. Yes, I know I haven’t finished writing about our last trip out west, four months later. But! We’re planning a short jaunt up the East Coast to Acadia National Park and are heavy in the research stage. Below is the general itinerary…

    Trip planning: Southwest for the late fall–Big Trip #2

    This planning post was for what became Big Trip #2 in late 2018. Read the trip retrospective here! We haven’t even started our next Airstream trip (leaving next week!) (possibly subbing Babcock State Park in WV for Nashville as the TN State Fair has bumped us from our preferred campground at the Fairgrounds Nashville), but…

    Trip planning: Asheville, Nashville, Pisgah/Nantahala…

    In my opinion, trip planning is almost as exciting as trip taking! We’re starting to think about our biannual Asheville Airstreaming pilgrimage, and wondering what other explorations we can cram in while we’re out and about. Right now, we’re leaning toward a few days in Nashville in our favorite parking lot campsite, a couple days…

  • Trip planning: looping out to Big Bend

    Trip planning: looping out to Big Bend

    This planning post was for a trip to Big Bend in January 2018. We visited Big Bend on our three-month trip two years ago and, because we were based in Ft Davis, an hour and a half from the entrance to the park, we spent just ONE DAY in the park. One measly day! We knew…

    Greenville SC – Atlanta – Savannah – Charlotte – Burlington NC–Short Southeast Loop

    We did this little loop in November 2017. We love Airstream trip planning! Our challenge for this latest trip: plan a loop that would include visiting family in Atlanta (overlapping with the implosion of the Georgia Dome) and visiting family in Burlington, NC (overlapping with Thanksgiving). The implosion was on the Monday of Thanksgiving week, which…

    Trip planning: Asheville again!

    This planning post is for a trip to Asheville in October 2017. Hello! After a stationary summer transitioning from the Airstream into our renovated house, we’re looking forward to dusting off the Airstream and hitting the road for a week next month. Our favorite quick and easy destination is Asheville, NC, for the culture, beer,…
