It was a bit tricky getting to it with some fairly deep snow in areas.  But, I  was all alone when I got there with an awesome view.

This was on our maiden voyage with our new to us truck camper rig.  I couldn’t wait for spring.  It was fairly warm weekend of 37 degrees during the day and 15 degrees overnight.  I had a great two day camping trip.

#005 - Fred PattersonSam Houston National Forest, Texas2013 Ford F3502002 Lance 1161Camera Used - iPhone 10I spent an unexpected additional month in Texas since my nurse daughter gave me a Covid shot just before I was planning to return to Virginia.  So, I toured Texas awaiting the second shot; Big Bend area, Gulf Coast, Panhandle, South Texas Plains, etc. I bought a Texas park pass and stayed in state parks for a week or so.  That was fine, but not the first choice of truck campers.  I began to visit state and national natural areas and forests.  I spent five days in different locations in Sam Houston National Forest on Lake Conroe, where this picture was taken.  It was a relaxing and great experience where I met several interesting people.

The water was not this close when I went to bed next morning at high tide.  I got a little nervous, but everything turned out fine.  I ended up staying two weeks.

#007 - Steve OsburnPacific Beach State Park, Washington2019 Ford F3502020 Lance 1172Camera Used - PhoneWe had reservations at Pacific Beach State Park on the Washington coast, but as we cruised around the campground before parking, we noticed a waterfront site was available in a section that was first come-first serve, but it was filled with about an inch or two of water (which is why it was empty). We switched campsites and scored stunning views for the 3 nights we stayed here. The site was virtually level, so we used our leveling blocks as stepping stones to get to dry land a few feet away. The weather turned out fine, so the water drained, and we had an awesome site for watching people, waves, sunsets, and dogs running on the beach.

Since I've always wanted to camp along this highway on the way to Moab from Colorado, I figured I'd make it my maiden voyage.  This photo was taken on Highway 128, north of Moab.  I spent a week in the are, getting used to full-time traveling in the camper.

#015 - Pat PhillipsBlack Rock Mountain State Park, Georgia2016 Ram 35002018 Arctic Fox 1140Camera Used - iPhone 8My daughter decided she wanted to get away for a few days, preferably in the North Georgia Mountains. So, even though snow was in the forecast, we booked at Black Rock Mountain State Park near Clayton, Georgia. And sure enough, it snowed on Christmas Day. Driving up the mountain was a tad nerve racking as it is a narrow windy road and, of course, not de-iced.  But, four wheel drive is amazing and we enjoyed a very quiet Christmas as very few campers wanted to risk the drive up. It was absolutely beautiful and we couldn't have done it with anything else but a truck camper!

We were heading south of Anchorage to the sea town of Seward to hang out for a couple days. This location is a rest area stop once on top of Turnagain Pass.  It is a popular pull off for the views along with snow machining the mountain sides in winter. This is also a great place to spot wildlife like moose and bears during the summer.

On all previous occasions, I had my pick of campsites.  I decided to take my chances over in nearby Alabama Hills. The Hills have become quite popular, read occupied, but I managed to find this spot back in the hills. It was a tight squeeze getting into the campsite, but I managed to get in and more importantly, I was out at sun up the next morning.  I hiked up the hill to take this shot just before sundown.

#029 - Terry GlfellerCentennial Divide Road, Montana2015 Ram2013 Lance 865Camera Used - Cannon Powershot SX400 ISFor years I have been eyeballing a series of roads in my Benchmark map book in the Deerlodge and Beaverhead National Forests in Montana.It was nice and dry, and gas was as cheap as I figured I would ever see it, so I started wandering my way in.  I got a flat tire almost right away.  Then, I found out that I could not get at the spare without taking the truck camper off.  I did not want to travel those backroad miles without a working spare, so delayed my adventure a night while I got the tire fixed.The next day I started back in and on the Centennial Divide Road, I found this nice flat pullout to take the camper off again, change the spare, and put it back under the truck.  I had a nice view for the night.

#030 - Terry GlfellerGravelly Range Road, Montana2015 Ram2013 Lance 865Camera Used - Cannon Powershot SX400 ISA number of years ago I found a series of articles online about backways and byways.  The one about the Gravelly Range Road caught my eye.  The author told how parts of the junctions could get rather confusing and also parts of the road were not very good when wet.After finding myself in some rancher’s irrigated field a ranch hand chased me down and nicely got me heading in the right direction.  I headed up the mountain and came across a couple who were high centered so bad that their front tires were not on the ground.  I pulled them off and a few hours of driving later found this nice pull out to spend the night.

I have camped at this spot a number of times.  It is nice and quiet if the elk season is not yet open.  Otherwise, there can be a number of Jeeps and ORVs growling about.On this trip, I got to watch a bull elk travel through close to camp, a herd of cow elk on the far ridge, and a bull moose wander by.

I found it to be my favorite for scenery in our province.  A few years later when I met a gal and got a dog, we bought a truck and camper and spent a week touring and hiking areas along Highway 11. I turned down a random dirt road near a hydroelectric dam.  This area is beautiful; water, trees and mountains, and tons of off road trails for ATVs, although I have yet to get one.

We wanted to see Rhyolite and there is BLM land right next to it.  Just over the hill is Rhyolite.  We took the dogs for a walk before dark and, on our way back, I snapped a couple of pictures of our campsite from a small hill.  The color is untouched and we were amazed by the lighting.  So warm and beautiful for January.

They are all must-see once destinations.  We found Zion in particular to have postcard worthy shots where ever we looked.  We also have to say, though, that the mobs of people at the big parks were difficult to deal with and probably cured us from visiting any others any time soon.

There were perfectly groomed slopes with two inches of fresh powder over the top, which means everybody on the slopes looks like an expert.  You just can't do anything wrong.

We stopped at the Caja Del Rio dispersed camping area in the Santa Fe National Forest before going home the next day. We boondocked here on the way to the southwest deserts and liked it so we stayed again on the way home. When I took this photo, I wanted the sun to be behind the camper and also to almost see the sun itself. This photo was not retouched an anyway.  By luck. this is just the way it came out. We must be special...haha. The campspot was found on the Campendium.com website. We were just looking for a free site not too far off of I-25.  It was a nice camping area and there were not many people in April.
