Hello, it’s been a while! People are starting to reach out and ask where we’ve been. Our Airstream journey was planned as a six-month round trip per the first map above. Well….things didn’t go exactly as planned (understatement of the year!). The first problem came up when we hit an unexpected hail storm in New Mexico that did quite a bit of damage to our roof. But we soldiered on, it was more cosmetic than structural. Fast forward from stop number 4 to stop number 10 (Savannah, GA) and we ran into a tropical storm that destroyed our awning. That sucked. But again, we soldiered on as originally planned all the way to Niagara Falls, NY. This is where things started to go off the rails as far as planning.
Revision number one was to take the Airstream to the factory in Jackson Center, OH for repairs instead of heading westward. This was initially estimated to be a 5 to 6 week process, but some insurance delays extended it. The next change came when we decided to go back to Charleston, SC while the Airstream was being fixed instead of hanging out in OH. But the biggest departure of all was that we fell in love with Charleston and decided to stay and buy a house!
Props to our real estate agent, Jennifer Pate at Carolina One. She made this happen and it happened fast. We found our house the first day of our search, made an offer, entered escrow and 2 weeks later we closed. I have been furniture shopping like an insane banshee – its been fun! We move in on Labor Day and are so excited to start our new journey here in Charleston, SC. This is the closest we have ever lived to the water, located on a large private lot, the house is beautiful inside and out, and there is so much history and culture to explore. So, how crazy are we? Just the right amount of crazy.🤪😜
