Please Don’t Hate Me…

But I officially want a camper.

Some of you who are hardcore campers might strongly dislike this statement. However, hang in there with me for a moment as I explain.

You might notice that Jason and I didn’t take one camping trip this summer (our backyard campout doesn’t count), or for that matter, this year. Camping has become too much work given our current home setup. No garage means that all of our gear is stored in our basement – our nasty, old, limestone basement with a narrow staircase. Bringing our gear upstairs becomes a major ordeal.

While I have enjoyed camping in our tent (surprisingly), it does take a little more time to set up our campsite. When we go camping, we don’t want to go just down the road – we want to travel. However, we don’t want to get stuck setting up in the dark, so we have to get on the road earlier. This usually means taking a day (or two) off of work. Don’t get me wrong – I have no problem using vacation time. The issue is that Jason and I have different vacation policies at work (I have more flexibility and time than he does), and we have to be careful to not wreck our bigger summer vacation plans.

It would be lovely to leave work on a Friday, go home, grab our duffle bags, hook up a camper, and hit the road. Having the ability to store some (if not all) of the gear we need right in the camper sounds fabulous, too.

Jason and I plan to start saving soon so we can camp more often.

Did you know they make A-frame campers? I didn’t…until now. šŸ™‚



In my dreams…


Speaking of dreams…Minimalist and very cool.


I’ll keep you posted on the future of my camper dreams šŸ™‚

I Will Not Be A Camping "Cheater"

Jason and I are, as we like to say,Ā “real” campers. We areĀ not cheaters. In other words, we rough it in a tent. As long as we have a good air mattress, I’mĀ fine with this style of camping. However, someday that might change. I don’t want usĀ to become full-on cheaters in a massive RV, but just camp in a bitĀ more comfort.

Kristin, whoĀ blogs atĀ Madcity Girl,Ā wrote a while back about the SylvanSport GO,Ā a very modern camper. It’sĀ not really even a camper; it’s moreĀ like a supercoolĀ hard-bottom tent.Ā Ever since reading her post about the GO, I’ve been dreaming of owning one.


Not only is the GO very stylish, but it’s also super functional. In addition to being a pop-up style camper, it is a trailer. Jason and I could use it to haul our bikes or his dad’s canoe along on campingĀ trips. When we’re not camping, we could use it to pick up wood and other large, heavy things from Menards.

Someday, when we’re ready and able to upgrade our camping accomodations, this is definitely my choice!
