Our mobile showroom has been on the road for a whole week now, and we have LOVED seeing all of you on campus!
From Nashville, to Virginia, and then Pennsylvania, it's been an adventure, and our Airstream gals, Helen and Jessie, have been making the most of it, one stop at a time.
Here's a behind the scenes look at the Airstream Team's travels so far!
FIRST STOP: VIRGINIA
GARDEN MAZE AT LURAY CAVERNS MAZE - In between our visits to JMU and VCU, we found a random brochure for the Luray Caverns and Garden Maze and decided to take a pit stop! The eight foot tall hedge maze has a half mile pathway, and secret spots throughout, including a raised platform for a view of the whole maze, secret fountain and hidden cave.
RICHMOND SHOOT - The whole company had Labor Day off work, so since we didn't have a school scheduled to visit, we decided to try to take advantage of some of the history in Richmond. - around 4 pm, the streets calmed down and we spent about two or three hours shooting Live Photos of south by sea product during the "Golden Hour". We had so much fun and got some great shots. Check it out!
EXPLORING PHILADELPHIA - at Temple University we walked through campus, talking with students about south by sea and handing out promo items and discount cards. After a few hours, we decided to explore Center City Philly - from the famous "Rocky steps" at the Philadelphia Museum of Art to the gorgeous gardens and reservoir behind the museum with views of Boathouse Row, Logan Square and Dilworth Park. Overall, this is a really beautiful city that has an amazing mix of modern architecture and a deep sense of our nation's history. It was also awesome because they actually had a 100 year celebration of a famous central street going on that day, so there was a ton of pop-up things scattered around the city from photo-op props, free Dippin' Dots, live music, and booths.
YORK FAIR- Somehow we happened to visit York, PA the same weekend that their fair was happening- it's the oldest fair in America and has been open every single year since 1765!...Yeah, over 250 years, crazy right?! It was nice to take a night to ourselves and enjoy some deep fried Oreo's and corn dogs. This impromptu trip reminded us that even in small towns there is history and surprises around every corner. We had a long drive to Penn state the next morning so it was the perfect break before the next day of work.
It's been really cool to get to visit so many campuses - public and private, big and small - and get to learn about Greek life and student organizations at all of them. When people see the Airstream roll up and ask, "what is this thing?!"...and then walk in to find how we've renovated it, they rave about how cute it is because it's totally unexpected!
It's fun to see how campuses are similar or different than one another, and even our own Alma Maters (we went to Bellarmine, a super small campus with about 3,500 students and UNC, which is obviously a big historic school).
For now, we are back on the road...

SEE YOU SOON!
