We have always been nomadic in nature. But the day we saw a vintage 1976 Airstream Argosy, well it no longer just a dream, but a real idea that had to be put into motion.
We had unexpectedly seen this thing of panoramic beauty,a painted Airstream Argosy that just called to us. We instantly fell deeply in love and blindly allowed it to change our life’s course permanently. For a solid month, every moment was occupied with learning about and searching for our home on wheels that would be our nomadic idea. In April 2016 we found her proudly displayed and rusting away in central Kentucky. Since then, it has been a labor of love. This is that story.
