Baby Gets Her First Bath

Kimberly gave The Pod her first bath today to get all the bug goo from our first road trip off of her.

Soon she'll get her first wax. We feel like we brought home our first child and are turning into helicopter parents.

Tucking The Pod Into Bed

We got The Pod settled into storage while we wrap up our sticks and bricks life.

We went home after this and collapsed, exhausted after being a bundle of nerves dealing with our first tow and then wiggling into our storage spot. It all of went smoothly thanks to how easy the Bambi is to maneuver, and the fact that Patrick tows like a boss. - Kimberly

The Pod's First Tow

The Pod's first tow off the dealer lot to storage.

We were so nervous to tow for the first time, but the Bambi travels like a dream - she is so aerodynamic and her weight is so evenly distributed that she barely had any effect on our gas mileage - so impressive. Thank you Airstream for this little engineering wonder.

A Birthday We Will Never Forget

We went to an Airstream dealership in Springfield, Missouri, on Wednesday and picked up this little beauty for Patrick Saunders' 45th birthday. We hope to spend a lot of time on the road in the next few years on the plein air circuit, painting and photographing. Can't wait!
