#001 - Jack SmithBig Bend National Park, Texas2021 Toyota Tacoma2021 Phoenix Pop UpCamera Used - Nikon D5I was camping in the Rio Grande Village Campground on the east side of Big Bend National Park. A photographer friend of mine and I had driven down Old Ore Road about a week prior to this photographed scene. I was exploring the park alone on January 16th and realized I could capture an image of my truck camper near sunset with the Sierra Del Carmen Mountains in the background on top of a ridge at the beginning of Old Ore Road. I was very pleased with the results of the image. Big Bend National Park is a large park in West Texas along the Rio Grande River that serves as a natural border with Mexico. I can't wait to return and explore more of the park.

After a day of shooting videos outside for the tourism bureau, we had special permission to camp on the top of the mountain beside a huge army bunker that used to serve as a Radar station in the 50s. I took the photo before I went to bed in our warm and cozy camper.  The outside temperature was below -25 Celsius.

We stopped at the White Sands National park in the afternoon to enjoy the scenic views while we ate dinner from the camper. White Sands can get busy, but it is such a large park that we had no trouble finding a spot away from other tourists. You cannot actually overnight camp in the park, but it is definitely a great place to see.

I headed to Alafia River State Park.  It is a former phosphate mine that altered the landscape to create the ideal terrain for mountain biking. I was down there for the week to mountain bike and take advantage of the great Florida temperatures in February. This picture was taken on the third night I was there. The full moon came up over the horizon and silhouetted the trees and my truck camper. I had the LED lights of my awning and the lights of my back door porch on, which both complimented the moonlight.  I had a great time that week and met a bunch of fellow mountain bikers!

#018 - Norton CanfieldCheyenne Mountain State Park, Colorado2010 Chevy Silverado2021 Cirrus 620Camera Used - iPhone 6sThis photo is from my return to our campsite at Cheyenne Mountain State Park in Colorado. It has legends and my favorite is about a Native American, Great Spirit Manitou, who was unhappy with his people and decided to wash them away. The flood water started to recede. A huge dragon-lizard named Thirst had started to drink up all the water. It became bloated and could not move. Manitou was afraid he would drink up all the water in the world. Manitou turned it to stone. Its image captured in the mountain. A little research and you can read a lot more history. There is beautiful camping there. We were out west on a vacation and a surprise performance for me in New Mexico. Now we’re heading home to Missouri.

We had ordered the truck eight months prior and had the flatbed made and upfitted many miles from home. So off to Idaho we went without ever even sitting in the exact model of truck!Then it was on to Portland to get the camper, which we had also been waiting on for almost a year, and had never seen in person. That day was long and exhausting, but we finally had our new toy.After a couple of days of tweaking things we headed down the 101. We were on vacation and the Redwoods were calling! We thought our rig was huge and impressive until we parked next to those soaring, beautiful trees…it kinda reminded us of our place in the world.  And off we go to address, if not satisfy, our wanderlust.

I love how the canyon gets narrower and the walls get higher as you continue down the trail with the walls polished smooth from past flash flooding. Then just when you think it can't get any narrower... bam!  The canyon opens up to reveal Death Valley in all its splendor. I like to camp near Big Dune just east outside the park to get an early start in Titus Canyon, leaving enough time to explore other parts of Death Valley and find a place to camp before the sun sets.

#036 - Doy GortonJoshua Tree, California2003 F350 Ford1967 Avion C10Camera Used - Sony Nex7We were rattling along in a vaguely unplanned camper trip that had taken us to Organ Pipe National Monument.  Then, there was a mistaken turn that took us over the Mexican border at Lukeville, Arizona...having been waved through by the Mexican border guards (in spite of no records for our amazing Australian Shepherd Hula the Wonder Dog). We were on the one of the most dangerous roads in northern Mexico, Route 2, admiring all of the abandoned homes and businesses, blithefully unaware of the danger when we stopped at a Mexican truck stop for some authentic tripe burritos. When we returned to our truck camper, Hula had eaten the GPS. So, we were on our own as we wandered back into the US at Mexicali, spending a night at Anza Borrego and another night at the Salton Sea before chugging up to Joshua Tree which, it turned out, was completely filled up. We know, since we tottered about through all of the camping spaces irritating the folks who had copped a campsite. Frustrated and towards evening, we left the national park in the direction of the town of Joshua Tree without our GPS. A woozy stoner informed us that the land over there was BLM. We actually followed a Class A, who had talked to the same stoner through the rutted roads until we got clear and found an open patch of land, set up our sweet 1967 Avion, poured an adult beverage and watched the sunset on steroids.  It could not have been a better evening.

This lighthouse marks the entrance of the Columbia River and is the oldest operating lighthouse in the Pacific NW. It's said that the trail to the now closed to public trail is haunted. We didn't verify this...we're faint of heart.

I planned this quite a few months in advance checking all the moon dates to make this shot happen.  The conditions needed to be right. My wife and I had done some hiking and kayaking over the weekend with this spot in mind for those activities and photography.I often weekend camp somewhere in this area, and this place usually has no one around; it’s quiet, on a lake with a big mountain backdrop which makes it special.  Luckily, we had good clear weather, often not the case for early April in the Eastern Sierra.I have done a good amount of night photography, so I knew what I was after with this shot.  What I needed was enough moonlight to show some foreground detail, yet not so much to drown out the stars in the sky.I often use a camper for my photography, and we always mix in activities like hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, snowboarding, kayaking or a mix of them to round out the days during our trips. Having the Arctic Fox 865 has been such a solid performing, comfortable camper year round. Idaho, Montana and Canada trip coming soon!

I have been going there for over 20 years for camping and water skiing. This is the first time in about four years we have been able to ski there due the water finally being back up high enough after a severe drought. It’s so good to be able to take our boat plus the camper with us and to all be in one car. The F250 and camper are not so common here in Australia.  We always get comments where ever we stop and people ask to take photos and ask questions.

Fast forward to 2022 and the Canada-US border opening up allowed me to take my young family of four down to this wicked place. One huge part of this trip’s success was our Scout camper along with my young girls’ drive to explore and ride our mountain bikes together.

I put a lot of elbow grease into cleaning, sealing, repacking electric jacks, adding 100-watts of solar and other miscellaneous items.  For many years up until 2022 we pulled a 2006 Holiday Rambler toy hauler with our 2004 Dodge Ram.  It was a great camper and it served our purpose well, but my wife and I are now empty nesters and I wanted more versatility. That included the ability to transport our Honda Talon and have loads of extra storage and less overall weight. The truck is somewhat of a unicorn in my opinion as it is equipped with the nearly bullet proof NV5600 transmission and 5.9l HO Cummins engine. With only a tick over 35,000 miles, it should last a very long time.

On our way from Idaho Falls, ID to Yellowstone National Park, we found this beautiful state park in Eastern Idaho just southwest of Montana to bed down for the night before making our way into our nation’s oldest National Park. As the sun melted behind the mountains and the lake, I saw a great opportunity to capture our temporary home-on-wheels. I took several shots with my iPhone 11 Pro and this was the best representation of the beauty that we experienced that evening.

#074 - Diane M. BlackEagle Lake, California2017 Toyota Tacoma2022 Palomino SS-500Camera Used - iPhoneWe went to Eagle Lake to a campground just to get out of town. The campground was spacious and beautiful. Living in Reno, Nevada, it is not too long of a journey to get to Eagle Lake and we had not been there in a very long time. Whereas the water levels were significantly down, the trees were healthy looking after the previous year forest fires. It appeared the area had not been touched but had been very close in proximity. Even though the water levels had dropped, the eagles were flying and the bird life was abundant. The campground was quiet with the trees casting beautiful long shadows. I was very pleased with the experience. I believe the photo displays the beauty of this campsite.

Wall Canyon Reservoir is just west of Gerlach, Nevada about twenty miles off a dirt road. The bull snakes were swimming, the fish were jumping and the weather was perfect. It was a great experience learning the features of the popup.  It’s easy to setup and easy to take down. We spent more time enjoying the outdoors than setting up or taking down like we've done previously with a tent. We knew we were entering a new phase of our outdoor adventures.

The photo is at a ghost town called Hamilton which is just North of Ely, Nevada. The dirt road took us through a mountain range with wild horse herds and beautiful high desert views. We descended into Hamilton but were still at roughly 7000 feet.  It’s an old mining town.  We stopped in the cemetery and noticed that many of the grave stones were marked the date of death in 1907. The structures were numerous with the first one we stopped at we could get the shot with the truck framed by the archway of the entrance.

We walked a ways and noticed a giant puddle in front of our rig. The reflection was almost too good to be true since there wasn't any wind at the time, so we snapped a few photos as the sun set in the background.

Every mile (or kilometer in our case) had a completely new view as we drove up the Icefields Parkway.

While thinking about the shot, I was not sure if I could capture enough of the camper to make out features.  It turns out I did. I wanted to compose the picture from a distance silhouetting the trees in front of the Milky Way and the camper in the foreground. I left the lights on in the camper and had a LED lantern (globe) hanging off the back awning. It gave the awning a red glow to it and the windows are blazing with white light. You can barely see my truck under the camper, but it’s there.

The dirt road is about 20 miles long and is slow going; 10-15 miles per hour max in our rig. I noticed some thunderstorms to the south and pulled over to capture a few photos. We are in the midst of a month long trip before our daughter starts kindergarten and have been very fortunate to find places like these. With the truck camper we can easily boondock and fit into pretty much any campsite. I added 400-watts solar in the spring which has expanded our ability to boondock even further.

Normally we go to Democrat Point here on Long Island, New York. We fish and stay over for a few days. Every year in July the piping plover decide to nest on this beach. We know this, so mid-winter I started looking for an alternative beach we could visit. With some help from YouTube, I saw this beach. This is Sandy Neck Beach in Cape Cod in a town called Barnstable. I looked it up on the net and also called the gatehouse. The people there were very helpful. I applied for a nonresident permit, received it and made the plans. We were there for four days and had a great time. We also met some really nice people. Being from New York and staying in Massachusetts we did not talk about sports. We will go there again next year.
