#402 - Kris and Savanna CassidySalmon Glacier, British Columbia2003 Toyota Tacoma2013 Northstar 600SSCamera Used - Canon Rebel SL1We were touring down the Cassiar Highway and had to take the side road to Hyder which was spectacular in itself.  Having driven through Hyder, and stopped off to view the bears at the Fish Creek viewing platform, we headed on to Salmon Glacier.I had read in TCM articles about boondocking there, but I had no idea that this dirt road would be so awe-inspiring.  The sun was setting as a backdrop to the glaciated peaks, and the road itself, though not as hairy as I was led to believe, still got the adrenalin going with sheer drop offs.  We were the only ones camping at the top immersed in deafening silence and surrounded on all sides with incredible views.  The next morning was totally clear, and I jumped out of bed to take many photos of the sunrise including this one.

#403 - Kris CassidyThe Catavina Desert, Baja2003 Toyota Tacoma2013 Northstar 600SSCamera Used - Canon Rebel SL1I was heading back home after spending the month of January in Baja, and drove through the Catavina desert in central Baja.  This desert is unique as it features hundreds of species of cactus, many found no where else in the world.  I took a dirt road off the highway and stopped for a picnic lunch and a hike in this cactus grove.

#407 - Samantha HindmarchLake Atitlan, Guatemala2015 Ford F2502015 Four Wheel Camper HawkCamera Used - Canon EOS 7DFrom the gorgeous views of this campsite, to the laid back vibe of the lakeside villages to the hellish drive to get back out, it’s easy to see why people go to Lake Atitlan in Guatemala and stay for a very long time.  This was one of the best campsites on our journey along the PanAmerican Highway.  To get to Pasaj Cap, you need to drive very steep, single track switchbacks (24 of them) with big ass buses appearing out of nowhere coming from the other direction.  It was not the first time we were very pleased with our decision to get the heavy duty truck that can handle all the weight we have piled in the back.  The drive was worth it.

I was lucky enough to get a site at last notice this summer.  I bring my inflatable kayak everywhere I camp (stored in my back seat) and was able to get out on Lake Huron.  I carry my waterproof Pentax on the boat in case I dunk.  I thought it was a nice looking scene coming back to the campsite.

#419 - Stephani SpaarLassen Volcanic National Park, California1997 GMC Sierra 15002017 Four Wheel Camper HawkCamera Used - iPhone 6In mid-July, we spent a weekend in the northwest area of Lassen Volcanic National Park in northern California.  Before heading home to the 100+ degree heat of the Central Valley, we drove up to see the snow where the park’s main road was still closed over the summit.  We also stopped to see the area below Lassen Peak devastated by the 1915 eruption.  After a prolonged drought, California had a near-record winter for snow and rain with the snowpack lasting well into summer.  Not aware that the main road was still closed, our friends tried to reached camp through the southwest entrance and ended up spending their first night in the Visitors Center parking lot.  They eventually made it into camp the next morning with a good story to tell!

#429 - Tim ZehTrans Labrador Highway, Labrador2005 Chevrolet 35002007 Arctic Fox 1150Camera Used - DMC FZ200We decided to take a trip this year to the Northeast and added Labrador to our plans.  The 1126 kilometer Trans Labrador Highway is the only road going across Labrador.  Although much of it is paved from Labrador City to Happy Valley-Goose Bay the 542 kilometer section from Goose Bay to Red Bay is still mostly gravel.  We headed out of Goose Bay and it rained all the way to the east.  This picture is taken on the highway.  We also got to drive on a dry section of gravel in Quebec.  The dust on that section was exciting.  Trucks would pass and we were in a whiteout for a couple hundred yards.  The wet gravel road was preferable as visibility was not obstructed.The road is covered with potholes in certain sections and we understand it is quite hazardous in the spring time as the ice thaws and potholes are exposed.  They are planning to pave the remaining sections in the next few years.We never needed our spare gas cans or two spare tires in Labrador.  One suggestion is to check your lug nuts.  When we got into Newfoundland, we lost both left rear wheels when the lug nuts came loose and the wheels came off.  Everybody was safe and we now have a great story to tell.

It was my birthday in September when we left Palm Springs where it was still hot.On a gravel road in Escalante, we met a guy named “Duck” from Maine who had sold everything he owned except what he could get into his truck camper.  He told us about a place in Vermillion Cliffs, Arizona where you could camp on BLM land right on the rim of the Grand Canyon.  After visiting the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, we searched out Duck’s destination and found it high above the first rapids on the Colorado River.  We camped there, totally alone, with the vermillion cliffs to our north, the canyon to the south and vast vistas to the east and west.

It has just hit 120 degrees F in Palm Springs and my girlfriend, Malia, and I decided it was time for a road trip.  In Colorado, we stopped at a US Forest Service office and asked the ranger where we could go to camp off-the-grid, fish for trout, and hike.  We also wanted to end up in Chama, New Mexico.  She told us to take forest service road 380 which follows Park Creek.For a while we followed Park Creek which was near the road, but at some point, the road rose many hundreds of feet above the creek.  At this point we could look way down into the valley and see a broad, green meadow which looked ideal for camping.  We drove down a steep gravel road, over a small creek and right into a beautiful hunting camp and there was not a soul in sight.

F in Palm Springs and my girlfriend, Malia, and I decided it was time for a road trip.  At a brewery in Cortez, Colorado, we met a guy who was doing bird counts for a federal agency on nearby Taylor Mesa.  He said we looked like people who like an adventure, so he gave us directions.We climbed the steep mountain gravel road a couple thousand feet to the top where there were vast areas of pine trees separated by wide grassy meadows and bogs – perfect elk country.  We camped on the edge of a meadow which turned out to be stage for the night’s performances.  Three separate herds of elk crossed the meadow from late afternoon through dusk and into the night.

#437 - Fred StanleyYankee Boy Basin Access Road, Colorado2012 Ford F3502015 Northern Lite 8' 11' SportsmanCamera Used - Canon 7DThis picture was taken southwest of Ouray, Colorado the last week of September on the jeep road leading to Yankee Boy Basin.  It’s a road that a truck camper can navigate safely even though it’s scary.  This jeep road is too steep, too rough, with switchbacks too tight for trailers or RVs.  Our F350 diesel, four wheel drive truck and Northern Lite camper handled it easily.  We love to explore back roads, and almost always boondock in natures beautiful settings.This was a six day trip covering 1,100 miles with nine mountain passes.  Vail Pass was closed the last night.  We pulled into Minturn and camped.  Brushing eight-inches of snow off the truck in the morning we drove home over Vail pass after a good nights sleep.  It’s so nice to have a warm, dry place with hot chocolate when the road home is closed.  We’ve owned four truck campers over 40 years and have over 800 comfortable nights out, mostly in the boondocks of the west.

The summit is at 14,271 feet.  The parking lot is at 14,124. This is one of the best places in the North America to take long exposure night pictures. Spending several hours at this elevation is cold and windy.  Having the truck camper available to get warmed up and make hot chocolate made a memorable night much more pleasant.

#444 - Zachary ZeilerSnowy mountains, Wyoming2011 Ford F1502013 Adventurer 80GSCamera Used - iPhone 6This photo was taken while I was on a hunting trip while in the snowy mountains of Wyoming.  This was my first solo trip with the camper and I always wanted to stay in this area.It was beautiful weather during the day and very cold at night.  Boondocking with a winterized camper proved to have many challenges, but I managed to stay warm by bringing an electric heater to supplement the furnace and a generator to charge the battery.  By running the generator and both heaters at night I could get the temperature in the camper from 40 to a cozy 75 degrees while making dinner.  After dinner I would put on my long underwear, pjs, and a hat and get into bed.It was a great trip with every type of weather possible and I will definitely do it again.  Having a truck camper made it a very enjoyable trip.  I was there for four nights and if I had been in a tent I would have never made it.  I ended up putting the rear legs down due to 50-60 mile and hour winds one night.  I love the type of access having a truck camper provides.  I would never be able to get to a lot of the places we camp with a larger trailer or motorhome.

We soon had to get creative and came to find out that a large part of the land outside of the park is Bureau of Land Management lands.  After exiting the park onto a windy, steep, narrow dirt road we found ourselves on BLM and officially able to boondock!  We were able to take the dirt bike into the park which is street legal and keep the camper parked at our awesome spot just outside of the park!  The sunrises and sunsets everyday were spectacular and truly was one of those experiences that sold us on why we chose the truck camper life.

It was only a day trip because Sanibel is close to home and my daughter had a rehearsal on the island.  I was able to combine taking care of my daughter's needs, checking the quality of my new installed items, and enjoying the beach for the day because that is the truck camper life!

This river is very popular for rafting.  We saw several launches on the river.  We stopped for lunch at a picnic area next to the Arkansas River.  It was pretty cool to see rafters floating by.  They reminded us of corks as we could only see the people in their helmets and life jackets.  Roadside trails, amazing handicap river access and viewing is available.  It was a really great lunch stop!

#481 - Nick OlsonBass Lake, California2015 Chevrolet Silverado 25002015 Northstar 850SCCamera Used - Samsung Galaxy S4The journey started in Los Angeles a week before Thanksgiving.  If anyone has been in LA in the fall they will know that it's not much different than the city in July.  Because of this we decided to find some adventure that would cool us down for the holiday.  We ended up in beautiful Bass Lake, Lupine campground.  We were enchanted the second our tires hit that amazing winter wonderland.  The lake glistened and sparkled and the snow came up to our shins.  It was the perfect place to enjoy our holiday and test our truck and camper in the frosty snow.We had the perfect camp spot just a few feet away from a wonderful frozen lake.  The tree in the picture became what we now call our turkey tree since it was so perfect and clearly put there just for us and our trip.  This picture takes us back to that amazing Thanksgiving in the snow, and one of the best trips we can remember.

#483 - Ivan WilsonOutside North Rim Entrance Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona2005 Dodge Ram 35001978 Kit FSCCamera Used - Phone LG G5Our camper is an almost totally rehabbed 1978 Kit.  The only thing that separates her from newer ones is a slide out and air conditioning.  The biggest improvements were remote electric jacks, solar panel and a rear deck which make things very easy and convenient.  We did all the work ourselves.We were on a tour around the western United States that totaled over 4,000 miles.  No campsites were available at Grand Canyon’s North Rim so we found a spot outside of it in total solitude.  I took the picture right before we left on our way to New Mexico.

We just took delivery of our 2017 Alaskan camper.  It is not removable since it is on a flatbed, but we wanted to show the difference between the two.  The 1968 is 8' long and our new one is 14'.  What a luxury it will be.  Our daughter will get some great use out of the 1968 Alaskan.  We purchased the 1968 camper from Uncle Wally and owned it for thirteen years.  Gary's uncle was the original owner.

I stopped at the top of the pass to introduce my new puppy, Remington, a mini Australian Sheppard, to snow.  I wanted to stop many places in route back since I had time to spare and the ling work week loomed mandatory OT.  Remi and I stopped at Deception Falls for short hike through the lower loop trail, stopped off in Skykomish, WA. Tiny logging town with great architecture.Then our final stops were Zeeks, best burgers,on Highway 2, and then the little white church which I had passed many times as a young girl riding shot gun with my dad in our truck and camper.   I shed tears as I thought of him and got back on the road driving my truck and camper.  Thank you, dad, for introducing me to the truck camper lifestyle.

The coastal routes were so impacted and the coastal Range was smokey from wildfires, so we did what we do best, found the road less traveled and ended up camping literally on the crest of the Oregon-California border for the night, just off a fairly decent forest service road.  The view was great on both sides, but winds sent smoke our way throughout the night.  We moved on the next morning.

Some of them are good, and some of them not so good.  Last June, on our trip to Canada’s Maritime Provinces we stumbled upon a wonderful surprise.  Newfoundland and Labrador were undergoing the coldest spring in over 40 years and as a result, we encountered an inordinate number of spectacular icebergs, and vast areas of pack ice.  The ferry ride from Farewell (southeast of Twillingate) to Fogo Island was like riding on an icebreaker.  This picture was taken at our campsite in the Brimstone Head campground in Fogo City on June 12th!

#496 - Carina HastingsWhite Mountain National Forest, New Hampshire1997 Ford F3501994 JaycoCamera Used - iPhoneMy sister and I have been inseparable our entire lives.  We grew up in upstate New York, and when it was time to go to college, she chose Colorado.  It was very hard to not see her for long periods of time including summers when she had a job out there.  This past summer we decided to go on an epic road trip all over the northeast.  We explored the Adirondacks, the vase state of Vermont, and spent several days with family in New Hampshire.  This picture is captured after a long day of wake surfing on Lake Winnipesauke, New Hampshire in White Mountain National Forest.  This trip will go down in the books for us and I'm so happy we were able to get to take a week from our busy lives to spend together in the great outdoors!
