I know I’ve said it before, but I’m sad to be parting with our first home. We have so many beautiful memories in this Airstream, many of which are snuggling by the woodstove in the winter and listening to the raindrops on the roof in the spring. → Peter Schweitzer


The Long Journey to Hitting the Road with @aluminumhustle

To see more from Sara and Dillon’s Airstream adventures, follow @aluminumhustle on Instagram.

It was only supposed to take two months for Dillon Spranley and Sara Goehner (@aluminumhustle) to renovate their vintage, 34-foot (10-meter) Airstream. But decades of neglect in swampy rural Mississippi took its toll on the trailer: the duo had to contend with rust, flood damage and the remnants of what Dillon hypothesized were “crazy rodent parties.” But after four months of labor, with some guidance from Sara’s father, a retired contractor, they were ready to set out.

The two’s professions — Sara is an animator and Dillon a hairstylist and jewelry-maker — afford them the freedom to work from anywhere. So they plan to spend the next couple of years crisscrossing the continent, from Alaska to Florida. “We think in about two years we will reevaluate, possibly continuing to travel or settle down in a place we both loved the most to conquer other dreams we have,” says Dillon.
