It's especially fun when you're traveling in a Design Icon of the 20th Century. Yes, that's the designation given Airstreams by the Museum of Modern Art.Even though the refrigerator is stocked with all your personal favorites ( fresh organic free range everything) and the flat screen TV / sound system are stocked with Mozart, Fred Astaire / Ginger Rogers and Abba -- you'll want to make a stop at the Snow Cap Drive In, in Seligman, Arizona. It is, after all, a historical time capsule, circa 1953, and they really know how to grill a burger and fries!
Though it's still winter in most of the country, it's always warm in our destination -- the Mojave Desert. It's great being in such a vast expanse of wilderness, but you won't be suffering from a lack of small luxuries. In addition to the aforementioned music and movies, know that there are Pratesi sheets on your bed, dupioni silk pillows to cradle your head and a french press for your freshly ground coffee. Your shower is stocked with hand milled soap from Provence and there are a stack of crisp ironed linen napkins for your breakfast tray.
