Airstream Turns 80

Austin is a time capsule for Airstream history

Bambi AirstreamThis week, I’ve been camping at one of my favorite parks in Austin. Nope. I’m not telling you the name of it, because it’s already hard enough to get a spot! I(But it’s easy enough to find it if you’re really determined…)

International AirstreamLast week, I got my Airstream set up in a nice, shady spot, and took a walk around. The park – and Austin itself, now that I think about it – is something of a time capsule for Airstreams. From aging Bambis to food trucks to my own late-model International, Austin’s got it all.

The Huffington Post recently shared an article that captures Airstream nostalgia with 21 photos that pay tribute to this little slice of Americana, including a shot of one Austin’s very own “Hey Cupcake” trailers.
