A Visit to Airstream Country

It’s my favorite time of year, with the dog days of summer behind us, and Fall making its seasonal progression into mild days and cool evenings. The leaves haven’t quite begun their dramatic color changes or need to be dealt with, so I’m enjoying the respite these last few weeks have brought. Fall is very late this year, extending the season here, which is fine by me. It really began though, when we decided to visit Michigan in September, where the shift from summer to fall happened. I wanted to visit a place I didn’t know well, since it’s always good to learn something new. Do you want to know what I found? Michigan is Airstream Country! They are Everywhere!

The reservations we made were for a former Airstream membership park, so imagine how much we felt at home when we pulled in there. Considering we picked our site from a Fun Map (where nothing is to scale, or as it should be!) we were happy with our spot. Here is my view out the door of the RollingSilver2ndHome, at Silver Lake, near Traverse City, Michigan.  I could really like it here!

In exploring the RV park, we saw more Airstreams than we’ve ever seen in one place, short of being at a rally. Not only were they scattered throughout, there was a storage lot, full. Who knew that such a great number were living in Michigan?
