Glampsgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, glampers!

This time of year I spend a lot of time wiping tears from my eyes.  The crisp smell of the air alone will cause me to cry.  The girls think I’m crazy, and TJ always laughs a little as he pulls out a hanky for me, but I can’t help it, its all too wonderful!  And there is just so much to be thankful for.  TJ and I are avid avoiders of the whole Black Friday nonsense and the immediate jump into Christmas as you clear the plates from the Thanksgiving table, so glamping with the best of friends for a long weekend outdoors was the perfect alternative.  Last year we started what we hope to be a semi-regular tradition: Glampsgiving.

Timothy Egan Worst Hard Time S C Gwynne books for reading when camping in texas and oklahoma

Glamper Lit: Texoma

Dear glampers,

Palo Duro Canyon State Park Camping

Palo Duro Canyon State Park

Do you ever get so tired of looking at the same walls day in and day out that you just pull out your camper and bring along every bell and whistle just so you feel like maybe you fulfilled the promise of that tiny house board you’ve been cultivating on Pinterest which you know will never really happen but at least you could feel like you live in a photoshoot at some romantic locale just for that one weekend?  (Because really, that is tiny! I mean, where do you store the waffle iron? But… but it’s so cute! and really… I am a minimalist, right? Right?)  Of course you do, you are a glamper!  And that’s just what we did at Palo Duro Canyon.

Wichita Mountain National Wildlife Refuge

Greetings Glampers!

As we all hunker down and await the peak of winter, now is the perfect time to start daydreaming of Springtime Glamping!  Naturally, Laura and I initially think big.  Grand Canyon?  Yellowstone?  Badlands?  So many choices!  But for us, our go-to first camp of the season is our local favorite, the Wichita Mountain National Wildlife Refuge.

Accidental Boondocking

Happy 2015, glampers!

 

We thought it might be silly to kick off the year with our tale of…. The Accidental Boondock (queue campy horror music).

I Like Ike

Greetings Glampers!

Before we turned the Labor Day corner into Autumn, Laura and I wanted to sneak in one last “Hotter ‘n 100 Degrees” Texoma summer season glamping experience.  Luckily, the weather gods were more than happy to oblige (104 degrees!  Yeesh!) as we discovered a new gem in Northern Texas: Eisenhower State Park.
