Airstream Mania

We stopped at a McDonald's near Malibu Canyon to go to the bathroom the other day. A father and his kids got out of a truck pulling a gorgeous vintage Airstream. And it hit me. You already know that I've been fantasizing about my someday home office, and now that we are starting to daydream in the house direction....well, I thought, why not build my office in an AIRSTREAM!!!!!

Jen: Can we get a place with a backyard big enough to have an airstream in it? I could have my office be in it. Customize it so it's WiFi and everything.

BBE: Yes, I think that's a GREAT idea!

So, now I'm looking on eBay Motors, and Googling, and and and. is a terrific website, and I can barely touch Aluminum Fever. I want to do this bit by bit, and linger in the fun of it. I also just found a 1961 Airstream Globetrotter for less than $1k. But after I said we might have to get this right now...we both agreed that we need one with the stuff in it (instead of empty) for the vintage effect. And then I can customize from there. Airstream-Bohemia restoration. There are lots of Airstream links on, and will be a great resource, too.

This might become more fun than buying the house, but I didn't say that. He thinks this is going to be a cheap endeavor...I have a feeling it's going to be quite expensive. But still potentially less than converting a garage into my own studio. Still, this is going to be the BEST thing ever. I better get back to work and sell some books so I can have some money for my flat screen monitor and new office sofa! (John doesn't know I've wanted a new sofa forever, but now I want a new airstream office sofa!)

HEY SANTA, PLEASE OH PLEASE BRING ME AIRSTREAM a calendar and mouse pad and messenger bag and Wanderlust book!

I think this is a great idea. And when you show up Wed. you will find your first Airstream goodie waiting for you by your bed!

Thanks, Susan! She got me Airstream Xmas cards. They are an Airstream pulled by Rudolph. She says I have to send her one of the eight cards, we'll see! ;-)

I think the Airstream idea is fantastic :)
