The Titan

Richard Charpentier Airstream Blogs, Notes from Rich 2 Comments

November of 2004 I purchased a brand new Nissan Titan. It’s purpose was simple…. Tow the Airstream!

Well today a major event occurred. The Titan rolled past 100000 miles on my way to the gallery in Williams!


2005 the Titan saw almost no use.  That’s when I’d gotten super sick.  So it wasn’t until 2006 that it really saw the road.  And that year it saw the road in a big way.  After my mis-diagnosis and “life changes” (nice way to put it right) the Nissan traveled through:

  1. New Hampshire
  2. Massachusetts
  3. Connecticut
  4. New York
  5. New Jersey
  6. Pennsylvania
  7. Maryland
  8. West Virginia
  9. Virginia
  10. Tennessee
  11. Arkansas
  12. Texas
  13. Oklahoma
  14. New Mexico
  15. Colorado
  16. Utah
  17. Nevada
  18. California
  19. Oregon
  20. Washington
  21. Idaho
  22. Montana
  23. Wyoming
  24. Louisianan
  25. Mississippi
  26. Alabama
  27. Florida
  28. Georgia
  29. South Carolina
  30. North Carolina
  31. Kansas
  32. Arizona

The first 30 in the list were all states that the Airstream and Titan went through in 2006.  Many of the states were revisited in the early part of 2007, and Arizona is where we all know I landed.  Getting to Arizona the Titan had about 48,000 miles on it.  Most of which were logged while the Airstream was in tow.

Yesterday I noticed the odometer and knew that today would be the 100,000 mile day.  Go figure, stopping in Ashfork on my way to the gallery the truck had 99,997 miles.  The image in this post kind of sucks, but hey, it was an IPhone photo.  It is a record of the milestone all the same.

You know, it wouldn’t hurt my feelings to put another 15,000 mile on the Titan this year towing the Airstream……  Maybe I can get Portraits Across America rolling for August.  More to come on that!

P.S.  I love my Titan.  Great vehicle, and a great tow vehicle for my Airstream.  Both need some more adventures soon!
