Living the Airstream Life with Karen Flett

Author Karen Flett in Action

This spring I had the pleasure of palling around with Karen Flett of Wellington, New Zealand. Karen is writing a book about Airstreams and Airstreamers, called Living the Airstream Life. The book will be published by Harper Collins, and will be available in December of this year. To say that I'm flattered and grateful to be a part of the book with my 1972 Airstream Argosy, Acacia, is an understatement. It feels like a wonderful full circle moment since I was featured in Airstream Living written by Bruce Littlefield as my business was just taking off years ago.

Karen arrived in Las Vegas and we had a great time touring around downtown, including a visit to Tony Hsieh's Airstream Park. It's such an inspiring tour each time I take it, especially since they're continually adding fun and innovative things. On this tour the shipping container garden was the latest addition that I've seen at the park. Very cool!

Garden inside a shipping container. Multifunction rave space?! 

We did a fun shoot downtown - I'll hold off on those photos since Karen will be featuring her photos in the book. It was a treat to see her work her magic behind the camera. 

We then headed off to Palm Springs to camp in and photograph Acacia. It was a great way to get to know each other and become fast friends.

I loved the space that we chose for the shoot so much that I decided to park Acacia there full time to enjoy, and to have others enjoy via Airbnb. Come visit her in Palm Springs!

I'll keep you posted on the release of Karen's book. It's going to feature so much good information and Airstream eye candy, you're going to want to add it to your collection!
