Airstream Life – Our Solar Show And Tell

As Steve put it, “the video you’ve all been waiting for”. We show you most of the components to our new solar system installed by AM Solar and explain each piece and why we decided on what we did. They did such an amazing job of installing everything. We didn’t lose a speck of storage space and everything makes sense.

Tuesday Talk – Answering All of Your Solar Questions

On Tuesday’s we’d like to answer questions sent to us from viewer’s like you and share some of the details of our Airstream life.

This week, we’re answering a bunch of questions we’ve been getting about our decision to get solar from AM Solar and why we drove all the way to Oregon over Thanksgiving week.

We answer:
1. Why did we decide to get solar instead of just using a generator while boondocking or plugging into shore power? Hint: it wasn’t because it was the best financial decision
2. Why didn’t we install the solar ourselves?
3. Why did we decide to have AM Solar install our system?
4. Why did we drive all the way there NOW instead of waiting until we head up to Oregon next summer?

Hopefully we answered a bunch of your questions. Feel free to leave more in the comments below. Stay tuned for our Solar Show & Tell on Thursday.

Monday vLog Day – vLog 25 – Pouring Rain, Soup, Condensation & Blown Fuses

Monday is now vLog day!!! We’re going to try and give you a sneak peak into our lives every Monday through our vLog series. Expect these to be full of out-takes and the random going-ons of our Airstream life. Eventually when we start traveling you’ll get glimpses of our campsites, and the gorgeous places we’ll be exploring. For now it’s life in Tucson as we get ready to hit the road.

In this week’s episode we share our cozy morning in Mt. Shasta where we try to stay dry. Steve shares his soap filling skills, and fixes a fuse in the truck. Lastly Courtney makes the Airstream warmer since we’ve been getting to freezing at night now. Enjoy the view!

Happy Monday Friends!

Friday Favorites – Putting up the Lights – Battery Operated LED String Lights

Occasionally on Friday’s we’d like to share with you some of our Favorite Things. These can be products, websites, or anything else that we love. Note we will ALWAYS say whether we are sponsored in any form from the companies we are sharing and these videos will ALWAYS reflect our true opinions. These are the things that bring us joy and we hope they can become your favorites as well.

This week’s Friday Favorite is our HAHOME Battery Operated LED String Lights. As you will see in the video we love these things. We have 4 strands: one in cool white, one in warm white, and 2 that are multi-colored.  The strands each have 50 tiny LEDs that are super bright and are made of wire so they can formed to almost anything. We keep the white strings up year-round in the Airstream and use the multi-colored for Christmas to make things more festive. For less than $10 a piece (at the time of publishing) plus 3 AA batteries we have a bright and festive Airstream.
