#001 - Jeff WrightShagwong Point, Montauk, New York2011 Ford F3502015 Palomino HS2910Camera Used - iPhone XSNovember 9th is the last day that Shagwong Point is open for camping.  We spend just about every weekend and whatever time we have off camping at this beach.  It’s approximately 60 miles from our house and provides a great getaway and a great view.  It was 34 degrees out when this picture was taken. I had just started the fire while my wife, Amy, was starting to cook dinner inside.  I was watching the clouds move and was wishing I had my camera.  The iPhone did a great job.

#005 - Timothy HutchinsonMedusa, New York1992 Chevrolet 35002004 Lance Lite 1025Camera Used - GalaxyThis was our first camping trip with our new to us truck camper.  Our rig is a 2004 Lance Lite 1025 on a 1992 Chevy 3500 dually with 52,000 miles on her.  We put this package together coming in under our meager budget for my wife's retirement trip to Alaska this summer.The picture was taken at my wife's cousin's property in Medusa New York at their annual Rest Fest weekend.  The Fall weather was cool and called for a chance for light rain, but as you can see by the photo, the mixture of moon and partial clouds made for pleasing night shot with my cell phone and fill flash.  It was fun to hear the positive comments on how well laid out and cozy the camper is compared to the compact campers some of them had, and the fact that we pulled in, threw a few blocks down to level and were camping.

#006 - Kristina NelsonBow, Washington1996 Ford F2501990 Cascade CamperCamera Used - PhoneWe've been living mobile since July 2019.  We bought a Thousand Trails membership to start living mobile after the camp fire in Paradise, California happened.  That's when we decided to live mobile.  We are now in Upper Washington living in our truck camper.  We stay two weeks in one of three Thousand Trails parks and also boondock a week using our local casino’s parking lot.January 11 and 12th we were caught in a snowstorm and we almost didn't make it to Mount Vernon Thousand Trails.  They were actually trying to call us on our phone to tell us they were closing the park and they would not let us in.  The campers could not go up the hill because it was too slick.  Thanks to the great customer service of Mount Vernon we were able to get into the park.  Within hours of parking our truck camper the snow came down.  We were stuck in the park for two days.  This was the first snow storm that we have had in this truck camper.  She held up well.  I love my truck camper.

I found this little path off the highway.  What an incredible boondocking location!  There was a ten foot diameter fire ring.  I could have spent a week here but needed to press on to Alaska.  I have two 225-watt solar panels, two L-16 Lifeline batteries, and a 2500-watt inverter.  I never run out of power.  The propane generator is used for the air conditioner when needed.  I camped here on the way back to Florida.

#011 - Kelly HootonMonument Valley, Utah2017 Ford F4502020 Eagle Cap 1200Camera Used - Canon EOS 5DS RMy husband, Tony, and I were camping near Monument Valley, Utah for a long weekend in January 2020 . We were enjoying the scenic loop at the site and came across a perfect photo spot next to some beautiful rock formations.  The sun was beginning to set giving the already glowing red rocks a deeper glow.  The sky was clear and no dust was blowing to alter the colors.  It became a perfect opportunity to capture the scene with our truck looking like it belonged right there.  We captured the attention of a tour bus going by and many photos were taken by the tourists on the bus as well.  They noticed the setting was wonderful and took the opportunity to enjoy it as we did.  We will definitely be returning during the warmer months and try to capture a shot with the many stars that shine over the valley.

After having a new heavy duty transmission installed in the truck we went for a break in run.  Little did we know the break in turned into a break down 25-miles from Capitol Reef.  After four hours on the phone with Good Sam and State Farm, neither would come get our trailer, nor would they get us home.  The rig could only go (not us) and only to nearest repair facility which was two hours in the opposite direction from home.  So our friends came and picked us up with the big truck.  Interesting story.  Been there done that, don't need to do it again!

This photo was taken when we stopped to spend a few nights in the Santee Wildlife Preserve in South Carolina.  The old live oak trees, draped heavy with Spanish moss, provided cooling shade and a great back drop for this photo.  When camping here, we took long walks and saw amazing wildlife.  At night the coyotes sang us to sleep.  There were a few other campers.  One was even from our hometown in Vermont!  Small world.  You never know who you are going to run into when traveling.

We were leaving the LA area, north along I-5 heading home to Portland, Oregon. We happened to stop for some good Mexican food at Bowersbank, just east of Bakersfield on I-5.  After looking at the map, we decided to backtrack back east and spend one more weekend out visiting Death Valley before pushing north back home.   We wanted one more weekend in the warm sunshine before returning to the cold north.One of the hikes we did over our time in Death Valley was the Golden Canyon trail.  As we were coming out of the canyon, you could see our truck and camper sitting alone alongside the road.  It looked like a Tonka truck sitting out there all by itself.  I snapped a couple pictures with Candice on the trail and the truck in the background.  Pictures like these show the truck camper lifestyle we enjoy so much.

I drove out the night before to meet the engine at 10:00 the morning of November 23, 2019.  We were between snow storms.  It was about 20 Fahrenheit and very cool.  Before the train arrived, about 100 cars joined us there.  This was boondocking, and well worth the trip.  The Alaskan camper kept three of us warm, comfortable and happy.  Because the town was small and the crowd polite, we were able to see it up close and touch it.  When the whistle signaled “time to leave”, you could feel it in your chest.  Ed Dickens and his crew were very kind to us.

We managed to find some spectacular country that simply blew our minds.  The beauty was everywhere we looked, exceeding all of our expectations that we had been dreaming about for months.  We managed to set up camp in a different location every night with a different backdrop to enjoy, cooked some amazing meals over the campfire, and sat looking at the star for hours.  This us time was just what we needed to reconnect with mother nature and to be reminded how lucky we are to enjoy this lifestyle chasing our dreams and looking for adventure.

Goblin Valley State Park turned out to be one of the more remote sites we found, and met all of our expectations.  Slot canyons galore!  We traveled each day to find a new campsite and have a different adventure.  We met a number of other couples who were chasing the same dreams that we were and shared our stories.  Knowing that there are others out there in the world who share in this lifestyle and appreciate what mother nature has to offer us on the backroads of America is reassuring that our sport of overlanding will never die.  Keep chasing those trails, stars and single ring campfires.

We planned to hit all five National Parks and Monuments in the southern Utah area.  We had 17 days to be nowhere and off the grid.  We managed to find some amazing campsites that left us in awe every time we looked out at the spectacular scenery.  From a mountain lion on a hike to the ancient drawings on rocks.  We were never short of adventure and solitude and soaked up some of the best of what the area has to offer.  If you haven't taken a road trip lately, get out in your truck camper and hit the desert.  You won't regret it!

Some friends and I planned ahead and began our ten day adventure with our horses, driving from the Dallas area all the way down to the Mexican border, stopping in Lajitas.  In 3.5 days, we rode our horses 75 miles, returning to our campsites each evening.  Other days we did some hiking by foot without the horses. After a long research process, we purchased our camper in March 2019 because my husband wants to take a two month driving trip from Dallas, out to the West Coast, up to Alaska, across the Canadian Rockies and end up in Quebec for a couple of months, then back to Texas.  My husband is not a horse person, therefore, we thought the camper would be a great fit for both of us.  When my husband wants to camp, we take off and when he doesn’t go with my horse and me, I take the camper and horse trailer.

We were on our yearly trip snowbirding all over southern Arizona.  I was riding my 900RZR in the desert with friends from Phoenix.  We are so spoiled being able to park or camp on BLM land for free in the most beautiful country in the world.  Three years ago we spent a total of $33 to camp in the three months.  The $33 was because we were at a Lance camper rally for three days, but we could dump and take on water so that $33 was worth it.

It led to a pond with abundant wildlife.About a 1/4 mile before the turn off to this pond were some train tracks. It couldn’t be a major route.  The tracks lacked rust so we knew a train or two was passing by from time to time. Along with the standard deer and waterfowl, there were wild horses inhabiting the area. We backed our camper up about 150 feet from the watering hole and watched the wildlife for four days and four nights.This was our first official boondocking trip with the new 2020 Arctic Fox 865. The picture was taken by my girlfriend, Niki, on the day we arrived.

It’s a very dicey four wheel drive road on that end. We passed two jeeps and were they surprised to see us coming.  It’s a narrow road with lots of twists and turns.  There are also some steep dry wash crossings.  We camped that night in an area surrounded by Red Rock Monuments.  I found the spot by searching Google Earth.  We were off the main road and had the place to ourselves.  Valley of the Gods is BLM land with dispersed camping and it is not very heavily used.

We have been in the winter and summer, but have never actually camped there.  We were headed to higher elevation to camp, but it was getting dark and the higher we went, the colder it was getting.  On our way to the high elevation camp spots we noticed this overgrown Jeep road that was leading into a canyon. We stopped to enjoy the sunset and take this photo before heading into the canyon.  We ended up finding a great lower elevation (7800 feet) camp spot at the end of this road.

We took our first camper here for one of the first trips and came back for a weekend away during Covid.I took the picture while standing on top of a five foot tall boulder in the middle of this small grassy meadow.  The boulder made for a great foundation and windbreak for a fire pit.  It snowed the next day.  On the last morning we woke up to a sheep drive right through the middle of our campsite.  The trip was a success; five days and one engagement.

We wanted to get up in elevation to see the area and turned onto this road to a scenic overlook. We were the only ones up there!  We saw a grizzly on our way back down, the only bear our entire trip. It was the best time for highway travel and to visit the national parks because there were fewer crowds and no tour buses.  With our camper, we didn’t have to depend on airlines to get us there and we could sleep in our own bed every night.  We covered 5,210 miles in 14 days across 16 states!

Then COVID-19 hit and the parks were closed for the period we had booked our campsites.  It looked like we wouldn't make it out to the Canadian Rockies this year, but with a bit of perseverance and a bit of luck, we managed to get some sites booked for July.  One of the 'bucket list' items was to finally drive the Icefields Parkway that connects Banff National Park to Jasper National Park.  The scenery was amazing.  What is typically a 3.5 hour trip took all day with all the stops to take in the beauty.  It's a must see!

I found a spot that gave me a clear view of the horizon, hoping for a dramatic sunset.  In the meantime, while waiting for the sun I set the camera up to take a photo of my rig.  Campers always seem so lonely without people in the picture, so I decided it might make an interesting photo with me in the photo looking at a map.  It took a few tries to get the lighting and the exposure to work.

One was to drive Alpine Loop from Silverton to Ouray.  Our campsite was in Ridgeway but we thought we would have an adventure by spending the day driving the back mountain route of Alpine Loop.  It was some of the most beautiful scenery.  We made it a little over half way, but the road got progressively more challenging.  We eventually had to turn back to prevent damage to the camper or getting stuck.  Nonetheless it was a fun adventure and we have many beautiful photos to document it.

This was a 12-mile forest road that I was heading to with the promise of rest. I was going to stop somewhere for lunch when suddenly I burst into the bright sunlight!  And there was a pullout! Wow, I took the omens and stopped for a bite. Everything was wet and shiny from the rain and the bright sun. The rig looked good sitting there, so I took the shot.

I drove up 30 so miles on Route 352 to Green River Lake. The last 15 miles were gravel and there were plenty of places to disperse camp. I made it up to the Green River Lakes and checked out the campground there. Having gotten my fishing license I decided not to explore more but drive back to a recommended fishing spot where the Roaring Fork River entered the Green River. There was a really nice campsite that I claimed and set out to catch some trout. Well, I had steak for supper and managed to get this incredible picture about 8:30 that evening. Wyoming is amazing.  I’m definitely going back to spend more time.

He suggested a trip along the Greys River between the Wyoming Range and the Salt River Range in Western Wyoming.  To get there you have to go through the Wyoming Range via McDougal Gap (8005 feet above sea level) on National Forest Road 10125.  It turned out to be one of the most spectacular roads I’ve been on.  I stopped along the road witnessing the lush green mountain gaps.  It is definitely worth buying State Atlases when exploring out west.  I ended staying the night at a National Forest Campground, Forest Park along NF 10138.  The drive out the next day along the Greys River was just as pretty.  You have to go over Thompson Pass to get back to Big Piney, Wyoming.  Highly Recommend!
