Hey Y'all From Coastal Georgia!

New to the forums! Somewhat new to RVing as well.
I bought a 1982 Airstream 34' Limited several years ago. It was quite rough around the edges and needed a bit of TLC. I spent my spare time for about 2 years renovating the interior and exterior and have thoroughly enjoyed taking it out as much as I can.
I am 34 with a wife and two little girls. The family time is great even if we are only weekend warriors for now! We always meet wonderful people every time we take the Airstream out... what a great crowd!

Here are some pics of my rig...See you on the road!

Welcome to the forum! WOW, your Airstream looks good as new (or better). You may have missed your calling if you do not do renovations.

Great looking Airstream. Welcome to the group. I think you have outdone yourself on your renovation. I hope you took before and after pictures. It sounds like you have great family adventures, make those memories and get out often. Safe trouble free travels.

Thanks for the complements and welcome everyone!
My rig is very photogenic and the renovation is still an ongoing process! Its 'the gift that keeps taking' as my wife would say! haha. I looked like a gorilla for about two months when I polished the exterior...its a messy job but the results were well worth the effort!
We look forward to meeting more of you on the road!
@roadmap: the campground at Blythe Island is wonderful! Its easy to forget how great of an area we live in! The first two pics above were in your back yard at Laura Walker State Park. Also a great place! We hope to see you around sometime! I am easy to spot

Let me add my welcome and compliments on the Airstream. That is one of the shiniest Airstreams I have ever seen. It would surely be hard to miss!!

I see you have the foldout table in the living room. I loved that on mine. It looks great.
