If you’ve read our articles from the past, you’ve likely seen that we keep a pretty close eye on financials and other numbers.
I’m not a numbers person. I’m actually pretty terrible at math, especially beyond Algebra, though I get a kick out of tracking stats and figures from our travels.

So are you keeping the Airstream, or are you taking some time on that decision? Thanks so much for sharing your adventure and best of luck as your family transitions back to jobs and home life.

Hi Dennis, I listed the Airstream for sale, though I’ve not been replying to the emails and calls from people looking to inspect or buy it. Turns out I might have an attachment issue.
Thank you for the good luck. We’re transitioning back into home / work / school life well.
