I don’t think so.  That stuff usually runs on the larger side and I  think and I’m more towards the medium range.  We’re actually going to look at an Airstream next weekend so I may be starting a thread sooner rather than later.  Fingers crossed. 

Fun Fact on the 252... when security at the museum tell you there’s no pocket knives allowed on the premises and your car is parked a mile away you can stash it in the inside pocket with no trouble after walking outside briefly to pretend you’re walking to the car.

So there's another Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in VA.  This one is way cooler than the one in DC....

@Matty123 let me know if you need any talking points to aid in your cause.  We have lots of information on homeschooling we can share too.

My goal is to start posting on a designated thread once we have the trailer but I’ll also be providing advance notice of destinations so anyone nearby will be welcome to come meet up for drinks and campfire poking along the way. For there is no more satisfying past time than poking a campfire while drinking beers, listening to classic rock and wearing IH. 

We’ll also be relying on help from locals to identify the less popular attractions so we don’t get stuck in tourists traps all the time.

Doing it with kids will be a challenge for sure but the way I see it they’re already sucking the life out of me.  They can do that at Joshua Tree or in Moab just as easily but with a much better view. 

And when my neighbors get on my nerves I’ll just tell them to go to Hell then I’ll move.

Well, we are considering doing a European version after the kids move on to college, or prison or whatever.  I’ll let you know.

Thank you.  It won’t be very interesting until we start buying the big stuff like the truck and the trailer.  We’ll be roadschooling the kids so my wife will be blogging about that.  I figured you guys would be more interested in seeing stuff like me drinking beers in IH, chopping wood in IH, getting bit by snakes in the Southwestern deserts in IH...   

I was thinking of free soloing El Capitan but that’s so 2017.  And I’m pretty scared of heights.

My wife and I are selling our house and the vast majority of our belongings, quitting our jobs, taking the kids out of school, buying a pick up and a 30’ Airstream and traveling the US full time.  We’ll mostly be hopping from National Park to National Park but we’ll be going where the weather suits us really.  I’m thinking of starting a thread once it gets closer (June). 

Today we booked our first campsite...

Here are some fast fit shots.  I hope to get some action shots in the wild this weekend...

TTS was the right choice for me.  I plan on wearing it as a shirt, not an overshirt.  The next size up, a large, would accommodate layering better for me. 

If you missed out on the previous versions of blanket lined Westerns this one is a must have.   

This Eco Selvedge is some serious shit.

Bump.  Spring's right around the corner...

I went TTS.  I sized up for the 106 but those had slightly smaller than typical measurements. I reached out to the IH crew and they confirmed they were going with their normal UHF sizes despite the shoulders.  The longer arms should even that out as previously mentioned.  I’ll let you know when it gets here on Thursday.

Thanks @Graham for getting me sorted out today.  I’m really looking forward to this.
