    One night in Fredericksburg, TX (visit #3)–Tucson for Christmas trip

    We visited Fredericksburg in January 2024 as part of our Tucson for Christmas trip. Read about our second visit in 2018 here, and our first in 2016 here. As we drove east from Las Cruces, we considered options for our next stop along I-10 on the way to Austin. Fort Stockton is just under five…

  • One night in Alamogordo, NM–Big Trip #4

    One night in Alamogordo, NM–Big Trip #4

    We were in Alamogordo at the beginning of November 2022, as part of Big Trip #4. Heading east from Tucson, you can’t not stop at White Sands National Park. Well, you CAN not stop–we’ve driven past it twice now and not stopped, thinking what’s the big deal about sand dunes, we’ve seen them before, and hiking…

    One night in Montrose, CO (visit #2)–Big Trip #3

    We visited Montrose in October 2020, during Big Trip #3. Read about our first visit in 2016 here, during Big Trip #1. I’ve been on a nice little roll knocking out several quickie posts where we stayed places for a night or two, but don’t get used to that pace–the stop after Montrose is our…

  • Three days in Eastpoint, FL (visit #1)–Southeast Lollipop trip

    Three days in Eastpoint, FL (visit #1)–Southeast Lollipop trip

    We were in Eastpoint in early January 2020 as part of our Southeast Lollipop trip. Read about our second visit in February 2021 here. From St Augustine, it was an uneventful 4.5-hour drive across the top of Florida to Eastpoint, on the so-called Forgotten Coast of Florida’s panhandle. This area feels completely different to other parts…

    One night in Portland, Maine–Acadia Loop trip

    We were in Portland in May 2019, as part of our Acadia trip. Read about our second, more productive visit in 2022 here! We didn’t plan to stop in Portland when planning this trip. Yes, it’s a cool town with a great beer scene, but we’d been there before (although it was many moons ago…

  • Airstream Living: Organization

    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 a tiny house, and even more so when you share your tiny house with another…

    Urban camping in Atlanta (visit #1)–Winter Loop to Austin

    We visited Atlanta in January 2017 as part of our Winter Loop to Austin. Read about our subsequent trips: visit #2, visit #3, visit #4 and 5, visit #6, and visit #7! We love it when friends let us park the Airstream at their houses, like we did in Denver and Burlington. We’re basically as close…

  • The Other Co-Most Valuable Winter Airstream Gadget: a space heater

    The Other Co-Most Valuable Winter Airstream Gadget: a space heater

    A while ago I wrote about the fabulous job our excellent new dehumidifier has been doing to keep our tin can home dry all winter while we three creatures are doing a lot of indoor exhalation. Its co-MVP for Airstream winter comfort is… drumroll… a Vornado space heater! [Update: our Vornado has since conked out and been…

    Austin: Exploring the City–Winter Loop to Austin

    This post is from our visit in January 2017 when we took a Winter Loop to Austin trip! We loved Austin. Did I mention that when telling you about our eating and drinking exploits there? It may not seem like it from my other Austin posts, but we actually did a lot around the city that…

  • Co-Most Valuable Winter Airstream Gadget: our new dehumidifier

    Co-Most Valuable Winter Airstream Gadget: our new dehumidifier

    In December, I put together a list of our favorite gadgets and gizmos that make our RV life happier. One of those gadgets was our cute little dehumidifier that would sit on the kitchen counter or bedside table and merrily chug away, pulling moisture from the air. Occasionally we’d see some water on the wall or…
