Introducing Scout II

I bought a 19′ International Airstream in Katy, TX in August 2016.  I really wanted a 20′ Flying Cloud, but used Airstreams are hard to find.  A year later I found a classified ad for a 2014 Flying Cloud for sale in New Hampshire.  I was on Long Island for the summer and Alaska pals Diane and John were driving Scout cross-country from Sacramento, CA.  I put a classified ad up and 3 interested parties contacted me.  Ironically, all 3 were on the route Diane and John were traveling, Memphis, Nashville TN and finally Asheville, NC.  The buyers in Asheville made the deal and came to pick-up Scout a week later at Jordon Lake Campground, NC.   The Airstream goddesses were obviously working with me.

I closed the deal on Scout II, and picked her up on 10/13.  Yes, it was Friday the 13th, so a few issues arose.  The Jeep quit, and I hit a gas station post on our first trip.  The damage is now repaired and Scout II is a real gem!  She looks brand spanking new!

Some of you may remember I spent the summer make new curtains and cushions for Scout.  With some minor alterations, they fit!

Notice a single sink and stove top right next to the sink. 

Counter space!

Most amazing is what one foot, 10 inches will give you in an Airstream.  I feel as if I am living in a mansion, with a real kitchen – counter space and storage!

While I am still organizing, I wanted to give you a preview of the Flying Cloud – Scout II.

We are enjoying the Gulf of Mexico and plan to spend most of the winter in Florida.  Maggie has now put her paws in the Atlantic, Pacific and the Gulf of Mexico.  What a lucky dog.
