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!

StoryCorps’ Airstream 4

001_1346I have always said “everyone has a story”. When I was dreaming of owning a travel trailer years ago, my goal was to travel the US and find folks from small towns to big cities and find out their unique story. One doesn’t have to be famous, rich, well-educated or a certain race or religion. Each human being on this planet has a story. So, when I read about StoryCorps it struck a chord with me and I’m intrigued with the notion of this non-profit. Their motto is “Every Voice Matters” and I couldn’t agree more. This great country of ours is built on the fascinating people who live here. What an amazing way to honor the citizens of the United States by  hearing and appreciating the stories of their lives. Here is a brief overview from StoryCorps website:

“StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 45,000 interviews with nearly 90,000 participants. Each conversation is recorded on a free CD to share, and is preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind, and millions listen to our weekly broadcasts on NPR’s Morning Edition and on our Listen pages.

We do this to remind one another of our shared humanity, strengthen and build the connections between people, teach the value of listening, and weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that every life matters. At the same time, we will create an invaluable archive of American voices and wisdom for future generations.

In the coming years we will build StoryCorps into an enduring institution that will touch the lives of every American family.”

StoryCorps also has a MobileBooth that travels the country and guess what? It’s an Airstream!!! Awesome article from the Washington Post that was sent to me this morning by my sister, Joan Sullivan “MacArthur Foundation awards millions to 13 organizations for ‘creativity and effectiveness’. Congratulations, StoryCorps!

Check out the “Cheese” version of the Airstream MobileBooth that was made in Fargo, ND!

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!
