Our Glamping Adventure Begins


Remember last summer when Brad and I attended a local vintage camper rally?  The bug bit us both and my sweet husband started looking.

And he found us one!

Brad and I celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary this week with our first  foray out of our county with our 1976 vintage Airstream.

I have to say it was way more fun than our shared colonoscopy experience a few anniversaries ago!

I didn't really know if I was the camping type, but I discovered after our long weekend away, that I absolutely LOVED it. Our little space, the fresh air, the views, the time to relax-it was all good!

We found our little tin can online, drove to Indiana with the truck, and bought it-behavior that is very unusual for my used-to-be-a-banker-now-a-farmer-analytical husband. We didn't do spreadsheets or anything, just made an offer that was accepted!

For trial runs, we took the trailer to our local state park a few nights, but we were so busy at that time, that we would race in there about 10:00 p.m. and leave by 6:00. Not a fair rehearsal, but it did give us a chance to figure things out before taking her/him on the road.

Lucking out, we found a great spot on a point of the lake which gave us beautiful views of the sunrise.

We hiked.
We biked.
We napped.
We laughed.

And I dreamed of what I want to do to make our camper more "us" without really making it just more "me".

Are any of you glampers? Or want to be? 

I would love to hear about your camping experiences. Educate me!
