We are Craig and Lisa Lilienthal. We have a passion for travel - exploring new places, meeting interesting people, trying different activities, sampling local food and drinks. Although we both work full-time, we try to get away as often as we can and enjoy sharing our experiences. We usually stay in hotels when we travel, especially Hilton properties (thank you Hilton Honors and Hilton Grand Vacations). When we saw an ad for Airstream's 2017 Basecamp, we couldn't stop thinking about it. We'd tent-camped a lot when our kids were young, but we'd never owned any type of RV. In October 2016, we checked out this lovely little camper at the Pomona Fairgrounds RV show and put in our order. We absolutely loved camping in our little Basecamp, but our travel dreams began to grow.
During our travels, we'd met retired people who actually live in their RV and travel full time! We are retiring in 2021 and had been trying to decide where to settle. The more we thought about it, the more convinced we were that full-time RV travel is perfect for us! The Basecamp is a great weekend trailer, but we would eventually need something larger to live in. So, we stared researching and shopping around. We researched different styles and brands and toured several dealerships in Las Vegas and California. Although retirement is still a few years out, we went ahead and placed an order for a 2018 Tiffin Allegro Red 37PA in October 2017. Our plan is to "practice" for retirement as often as we can.
As we travel (practice) we enjoy taking a lot of pictures and making silly videos of the places we visit; this site is where we'll share our travels along with other things we enjoy. Come along with us on our adventures!
