There is the great outdoors. Get out there! Utilized the area maps and brochures. Go see, take pictures and make memories. I like to go to the nearest little town to soak up local history and culture. Shop in local quaint shops. Try the local cafe. If there are wineries, farms or ranches that allow visitors take a tour. Take a hike, or at least a slow walk and marvel at the scenery we don’t get to see living in a city. We like to golf the local courses and even fish if the weather permits.
- Take pictures! Lots and and lots of pictures! If you don’t have makeup on, you have sweats or just wrinkled tee on…take those pictures! There will come a time when your kids and grands will look at those pictures and marvel at how much fun you were, how much fun you had, and cherish the memories of YOU!
- Journal your trips with pictures. You may not think anyone will care, but trust me, they will. They will look at all your pictures and your descriptions and one day may decide to trace your footsteps. Leave a legacy of discovery, exploration, fun, and adventure.
As night falls and bugs come out to play in the lights, build a exploration, funcampfire, make some s’mores, talk about your day, laugh and watch the stars. We have two televisions in our camper and we have never watched them. Most evenings we play music, listen to nature and relax. It is at that time I appreciate the opportunity to experience God’s creations, my husband who is willing to travel with me and take me places, and be thankful for my fun adventures past, present and future. I am also excited to be able to not only share those with you the reader, but hopefully help you as a future or present camper enjoy your own adventures while maintaining an acceptable level of sanity.
