Dry Camping and Dry Shampooing 1

I am so excited about this product, I just had to share not only for Airstreamers who Boondock (dry camp) but, for all RV’ers! As you all know, I consider myself a Glamper. I want to be out in nature as much as I can but, at the end of the day, I want a cozy travel home to cook a sumptuous meal, enjoy a fine glass of wine, take a hot shower and sleep in a uber comfy bed ~ hence, Glamorous Camping. Well, there will be times when Hub’s and I will be boondocking or at a campground with limited  hook-ups. And I mean, NO WATER!!!! The thought just about makes me cringe. I am a shower/bath girl and like to wash daily. So, when I discovered this product, I was elated at the thought of no water but, will still be able to show my face (or hair) in public after using this amazing dry shampoo by Klorane. Not just for us ladies, this dry shampoo will be awesome for your man and kids! The Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo is made with oat milk so its very gentle. I purchased a bottle from Drugstore.com and tried it this past weekend. It was just what I expected, it helped me get through another day or two without having to wash my hair in the shower. Just spray it on your roots and wait for about 2 minutes then brush out. Don’t be shocked as it looks like you have sprayed talcum powder on your head but, it brushes right out along with the oil from your scalp. So, if you are in a pinch and don’t have water or really need to conserve it, this dry shampoo will be your saving grace!

  • Made with softening and protective oat milk, this paraben-free, sulfate-free and sodium chloride-free dry shampoo cleans hair without water.
  • Corn and rice starch for powerful cleansing action and natural microspheres (cyclodextrins) to eliminate dirt, oil, and odors.
  • Hair regains volume and lightness within minutes!
  • Quick and practical to use, it’s ideal for traveling, people on-the-go, after the gym and busy moms.
  • Perfect for extending a blow-out and protecting hair color.
  • Ideal to provide texture for an updo – no bridal updo without!

Our Airstream will be stocked with Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo for those times when we must really conserve our water. Enjoy!


Airstreams as Art 2

Even though I am a collector of wildlife and western art, my eye is always drawn to interesting new art concepts. Low and behold even the iconic Airstream travel trailer made it to the modern art era. Airstreams are an art form unto themselves so, it was natural for an artist to turn the Airstream into a sculpture. “Three Cans” as seen below was created by artist Christopher Schulz, American born sculptor: ” Christopher can take the abstract and complex, and refine it until it exists as pure form.” Christopher Schulz is represented by Christian Hohmann Fine Art, a contemporary fine art gallery in Palm Desert, California. The gallery specializes in European and US art with a strong emphasis on Figurative Art.  I just adore this piece!

Beatrice, Meet Sandy! 4

After months and months of due diligence, research and more research, we finally purchased our dream Airstream, Beatrice. Who would have thunk that Beatrice is now faced with meeting her nemeses, Hurricane Sandy. You know Aluminum and salt water don’t like each other! Beatrice is currently sitting on the dealership lot in Lakewood, NJ which is only 7 miles inland from the Jersey shore. I haven’t spoken to Colonial Airstream yet today and am keeping my fingers and toes crossed that our Beatrice is going to be just fine for us to pick her up next month. When I mentioned in a previous post that I was so thrilled to be able to write about my adventures in Beatrice, I didn’t realize the first adventure would be surviving the hurricane of the century!! Update soon, I hope!
