Taking the Leap

It takes guts to jump into being a full-time Airstreamer. The preparation,  timeline, details and emotions of it all can be thrilling and terrifying at the same time. We asked full-time Airstreamer Ramona Creel about taking the leap and how to figure out if this on-the-road lifestyle is for you!
