Dream. Travel. Explore. Live. These are the cornerstones, the rivets, upon which founder Wally Byam built Airstream and challenged us, "To strive endlessly to stir the venturesome spirit." He encouraged all "to open a whole world of new experiences."
New experiences and possibilities are everywhere. They are found in the opportunity to learn to play the guitar or write a memoir. In the opportunity to practice yoga on a mountaintop or take a hike with a loved one. They are found in the opportunity to make a change or keep going. And when we awaken our venturesome spirits, we come alive. We feel hopeful. Passionate. We not only feel inspired, but we want to inspire others. We're engaged. Present.
Doing. Being. Seeing. Experiencing. Overcoming. Loving. Risking. Living riveted is about discovery. It's the exploration not only of places and spaces, but also of people and ourselves. It's the invitation to...
Stop... and breathe.
It's the drive to open a whole world of new experiences. It's recognizing and believing that there is no wrong way. We may have no control over where we're from, but we can decide where to go from there... and the action we take to get there is what creates a riveting life.
Dream. Travel. Explore. Live. Live Riveted.
The Live Riveted Challenge isn't about telling anyone how to live riveted -- that's personal -- but it is about giving you a little nudge to try something outside your comfort zone. After all, we believe we know what would make us happy and content but do we really know? There could be experiences in life that we haven't even thought of that could bring us joy. From a simple suggestion to smile at the next ten people you meet, to learning to play an instrument, they won't all be for you but we hope that you will at least give a few of them a try and tell us how it went. Who knows, your picture may encourage and inspire others. One thing is for sure, you won't know until you try it. So click here to view our challenge for the week, vote for your favorites, and view past winners.
How it works:
The live riveted challenge will be a regularly scheduled event where you will have an opportunity to submit your best picture with context of you completing the challenge. There will be a prize for each winner with your picture promoted on Airstreams social media. Challenges will be posted at the end of the week so that we can receive submissions to post for all Airstream enthusiasts to vote for their favorite. We will select the best picture that most accurately depicts the challenge completed. Number of Facebook likes will be taken into account, but will not be the determining factor. Voting will end on the following Thursday at noon for each challenge. The winner will then be announced on Friday. Below is an example of how the challenge will work.

Airstreaming is more fun when you're in a group, and that's why the community around caravanning and travelling and camping in Airstreams is so close-knit. So why wouldn't it extend into the realm of the Internet? Air Forums is the home of Airstreamers online - a forum where members of our worldwide community can gather and meet.
