Travel Map & Facts

UPDATED: March 19, 2019

This is the bare-bones facts of our Airstream adventure, our travel map and facts.

We bought our Airstream, Beauty, in April 2015 in Alabama, towed her to San Diego in July 2015, moved full-time into Beauty April 2016, and finally, took her on the road full-time July 18, 2016.

So, the following statistics begin on July 18, 2016.

Below is the map of our journey. Click the map for an animated look at our travels. Jim’s a Star Trek fan, so we apologize in advance.

  • Year 1 – July 2016 to July 2017
  • Year 2 – July 2017 to July 2018
  • Year 3 – July 2018 to now

Now for the details…

  1. Would love to know how you did the map and kept track of everything. We’re starting out and haven’t figured out the best way to do it.

    1. TR, I use the Macintosh version of PowerPoint, which is called Keynote. After I’ve imported a map of the North America I use the “build in” animation called “wipe” and create each leg of our journey. When I’m ready to update my map online, I use QuickTime and create a movie from the Keynote program that is then put into the Macintosh program called iMovie where I add music. Is it easy, no! But after I’ve done it for almost 3 years it’s almost automatic to add a new journey every few weeks. Hope this helps you understand how I generate the animated map.

  2. This is fantastic and so helpful for me. I’m a planner and a bit scared to go fulltime. We are not ready yet still working and in planning stage.

    1. Linda, thank you! We found planning was a fun part of the adventure. The first six months of our blog posts, from January 2016 until July 2016 are all about the planning stage. You might find some of those posts helpful and encouraging. Hope to meet on the road someday!
