About 35 or 40 of the sausage-shaped shiny silver trailers rolled into town Friday and gathered at the big boat ramp parking lot near our house for the night.
On Saturday morning they made a parade down the Main Street and then set up camp on several of the downtown streets.
On Saturday afternoon most of the rigs were open for visitors to come in and see. What a friendly bunch of people! They opened their doors and invited everyone right in to show you every nook and cranny of their homes. Some had candy and cookies to offer and all had great stories to tell.
All we visited were “full-timers” and one couple had been on the road continuously for 12 years! They had a large map displayed, a maze of red lines — all their trips up, down, and around America in those 12 years.
These Airstreams were mostly 30 footers, way out of the ballpark of the camper we are looking for, but we sure enjoyed seeing them and chatting with the owners about what it is like to sell everything and live in a home on wheels.
