As we bluster into the autumn season, Laura and I have found the falling leaves and chilly weather inspiring. As the prime summer camping season winds down, it’s prime-time for an Airstream Improvement Project! Camping trailers are the perfect outlet for the consummate DIYers. Hmmm… now where to begin?
One of the first things I always seem to do when we move into a new place is tack stuff on the walls and then make something that I feel is the absolutely THE THING I MUST HAVE TO LIVE HERE. Our Airstream is no exception.
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.
I remember being absolutely terrified and adverse to drives over 30 minutes when our first child was born. We were living in Tacoma, WA, and nothing could persuade us to travel to Portland, OR (an hour and a half away–and a city filled with books, flowers, and craft beer… our favorite things!). But moving to southwest OK and becoming glampers has changed all of that. What’s that? A two-hour drive to go fishing for an hour before we hit triple digit heat? Let’s go! So let’s talk road trips!
Today we are guest posting on Hearth and Homefront, a blog by our dear dear friend Moira. We make DIY photo ornaments, something that may be really fun to do with all your travels this year. Hope you enjoy!
So first we went north, then we went *more* north. After two months of 100 degree days at home, we couldn’t get close enough to the north pole. However, we did settle for the north shore of Lake Superior. It was totally rad. Except the part where our beloved dog Blue tore her other ACL. But it was still just as rad, AND we built up our triceps caring around that poor 50-pound dog.
It was with a touch of madness that we embarked on our 2,200 mile glamping trip to Northern Minnesota and Wisconsin last year. There were things we needed to be in the area to do, baptisms, wedding celebrations, family visits, so why not turn it into one big old glamping trip?! And our first big trip after buying the Airstream just a couple of months earlier. So off we went, two adults, two children (our youngest was 18 months), and two 50+ lb dogs (one of whom had a torn ACL).
