Life as Vacation

Craig Zabransky is on the verge of taking in a Mile Marker 88 sunset, Upper Florida Keys, as we begin to wind down our telephone interview. “It will be a prime one,” he tells me. He’s clearly jazzed. Days later I go to his website, StayAdventurous.com, and click on the Sunday Sunsets Map so I can sneak a peek. It is a doozy. The fiery sun hanging out in hues of orange and black. “A sunset is a universally shared moment,” says Zabransky, a global management consultant-turned-travel writer. And share them he does. His map features pins of 242 sunsets around

Live Riveted at Mardi Gras

The world’s biggest free Carnival show — Mardi Gras — is certainly a must-see event for everyone. If you’re a New Orleans native, Mardi Gras is just a part of your year and not celebrating it seems like a crime. For those in other parts of the country, however, the idea of attending Mardi Gras is exciting and probably a little bit scary. But don’t let that stop you from hopping in your Airstream and taking a trip down to New Orleans to party on! Here is more information about Mardi Gras and tips on how to Live Riveted while

Flairstream

Many people grow up as Airdreamers. You know, the folks who dream of one day traveling the country in an Airstream. However, most people don’t grow up dreaming of owning Airstreams to host riveted events with their best friend! Jill & Reni are the creative business duo behind Scene Events. When Reni was “forced into retirement” after 21 years of working for her employer, she and Jill officially launched a business that fit their desire to Live Riveted. “Reni and I had created a few events together as fundraisers for our boy’s lacrosse team and; during these events, we would

One Easy Step to Happy

It was another seemingly random poster on social media. You know, the ones that combine a quote or clever saying with an image. I typically skim them; they have a fraction of a second to grab my attention or I’m on to the next thing. “Plan a trip, but don’t take it.” That’s what caught my eye. It was one sentence in a list – 10 Scientific Ways to be Happy. Really? Happy? This little exercise? I am reading this in a week where I am, once again, visualizing where I might go next. Come to think of it, I

A Stampede of Color and Design

The naysayers will try to convince you there is no value in hanging out on Facebook or engaging in Twitter, but I pooh-poohed that in 2009 when Facebook was the connector for a fabulous trip to Italy. While that’s an outsized example of what social media can do, I get so many ideas from scrolling my timeline and seeing what people are up to. That’s how I happened on my cousin and her husband visiting The Stampede Outdoor Art Exhibition in Hopewell, N.J., which is actually 68 hand-painted oxen placed in locales all over the suburban town. My 11-year-old niece seemed

The Airstream Community

Community: a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. While the Airstream community may not “live” in one specific place, there is a community that has grown across the country among Airstreamers. Community is an important and amazing thing. When you surround yourself with people who have similar characteristics, interests, and goals as you, you tend to find that “doing life” is a bit more enjoyable and full of great adventures. We recently released a new

An Airstream Family Vacation: On the Computer!

Love technology and Airstreams? Then we have a new game just for you! This new computer game will immerse you in a Live Riveted adventure every day of the week! Airstream has partnered with Ends in Four Games to have the classic Silver Bullet travel trailer included in a new video game called Family Vacation 2: Road Trip.

Letting Curiosity Lead the Way

I’ve enjoyed a picnic at the beautiful, sacred Newark Indian Burial Mounds in Newark, Ohio. I’ve had a spot-on ice cream sundae at the Cow Palace in Shelbyville, Indiana. I’ve visited the storied Santuario de Chimayo in New Mexico. All wonderful experiences. All asides to trips planned for other reasons. In other words, none of those was a destination, but each one made me richer in my travel life, in my whole life. I’ve been reading a lot of articles lately about how best to travel, how smart and cool it is to do non-tourist-y things or how a bucket

Why a Live Riveted Summer Makes the School Year Better

It’s hard to believe that the summer is quickly coming to a close. With an amazing summer behind us, the recent release of our 2015 Travel Trailer models and the addition of Quietstream, our conversations are abuzz with lots of exciting things. And with a new school year kicking off for many of our littlest Airstreamers and adventurers, we got to thinking about how a “Live Riveted” summer is the best way to spend summer break. However, the greatness of a Live Riveted summer doesn’t end when the school bus rolls around the corner. In fact, for many families, Live

Five Places to Visit in the USA

At Airstream, we make it a point to celebrate people who embrace the words of Eleanor Roosevelt and truly live life to the fullest. This way of life—the Live Riveted life—is one that Airstreamers know well. We love hearing about their adventures, memories and places they’ve visited along the way. To encourage the Airstream audience to share Live Riveted stories, we have held several monthly challenges asking people to share their favorite photos, memories and more. The July challenge was one of the best yet! We asked Airstream fans to share a photo of their favorite place in the USA. There
