Who would have ever thought we would be using that kind of title? Not me. Maybe I should introduce myself and tell you who I am exactly. Remember the campingcrazybuzz postings last year about the camping trip disaster? That was us!
Crazily enough—we’re back at it. Why? Good question. Although this year in particular camping should be high on your list of things to do. Why you ask? Social distancing. Something we never even dreamed of when we purchased our first travel trailer last year.
But this is 2020–unprecedented has become a term that is overused at this point. But, I digress.
Why should glamping be high on your list this year? First of all—glamping is low contact— everything is self contained within your own camper. Need to take a shower? No problem. Need to stop while traveling to use the bathroom? Guess what? It travels with you. Eating out at restaurants? Why would we do that when we have our own indoor/outdoor kitchen? I think you get the point.
COVID-19 has now taken over our lives and the way we live so glamping has now become a particularly popular way to vacation. (Side note: I use the term glamping to refer to people to camp using a travel trailer, 5th wheel or motor home—anything but tent camping).
So here we are. Summer 2020. After our disaster last year you may be wondering why we would ever consider purchasing another camper. To be honest I wondered too. My husband said we had to redeem ourselves this year —so here we are. Armed with our Ford F-250 and our 2019 Elkridge Lite 361 5th wheel.
We started our journey last week so as the week goes on I’ll update accordingly. Suffice it to say—glamping with my family is something that is unforgettable! I’ll also clue you in about our experience going from a travel trailer to a 5th wheel! Stay tuned!
