Dream Rest Stop: Airstream Heaven

We were driving back home after travelling last weekend and stopped in Baker City, Oregon, to have dinner and release our wiggles.




This is our favorite place to release our wiggles when we are in Baker City, Oregon:

My husband's family calls it Old Geezer park, the reason for which is a long story that is probably heavily influenced by the loopiness that results from marathon road trips in un-air-conditioned cars with six kids.

So we stopped, and while the kids were releasing their wiggles, what do you suppose I saw glimmering through the trees?

These sweet babies:

Apparently July 4th is Wally Byam's birthday (inventor of my beloved Airstreams) AND he was born in Baker City, Oregon.  The Oregon chapter of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International was hosting a rally that weekend, with Airstream owners from all over the US coming to take part in the festivities.

Airstream heaven.










I talked to a couple of the owners of these lovely trailers, and they very graciously let me peek in their homes.  So cool!  I don't know what it is about an Airstream for me, but I think they are the coolest RV's ever--(which may not be saying much, I realize).  I just love the vintage-cool look of them and the idea of having a little fort on wheels.  Someday!

  1. Oh my goodness-- that doormat!  I love it.

    Yes to Airstreams!  Did I ever show you the magazine article I clipped about one in England?  Cutest vintage decorating job ever.  When we're old, let's gentrify some campground w/ our classic trailers, ok?
