Cheraw State Park has a small campground with only 17 RV sites and we were lucky to get one of the five sites directly on the lake for this stay. It was during one of our walks along a boardwalk through the cypress wetlands at the park that I shot this image.

#012 - Jonah ZaimesBig Bend National Park, Texas2023 Ford F-3502023 Bundutec BunduvryCamera Used - iPhone 14This photo was taken on our first real trip with our truck camper. We did ten days and covered 3,000 miles starting from Des Moines, Iowa. The photo was taken at Grapevine Hills site #4.  If you are looking for a remote site with an interesting drive to get there, this might be the one for you. The seven mile dirt road took us 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to the site. This was the same day we did our 15.8 mile hike in the Chisos mountains. We did the south rim trail with the spur trail to summit Emory peak. I’ve heard the South rim trail is the best hike in Texas. I’d say it definitely didn’t disappoint.

#013 - Craig BeaudinAlvord Desert, Andrews, Oregon2003 Toyota Tundra2015 Northstar 700ssCamera Used - Samsung Galaxy S22We were heading home after watching the Annular Eclipse and camping on the Alvord Desert of Eastern Oregon. I was snapping some photos of the rig and the pups to remember the few days spent out there with some friends. Mav and Rambo (the pups) happened to pose like this and I managed to capture the scene at the right time. This was the first time that I had taken this rig out to the Alvord as I had purchased the camper only two months prior.  At night in this remote area, the night sky was about as vibrant as any that I have seen with the stars and the Milky Way out in full force. It helps that this area is far from any major source of light pollution (nearest town of any size is Burns, Oregon - 80 miles by air).

That's one reason why we purchased our camper. It's not about the destination, it's about the journey...so true, so true.So last fall we took a road trip from our home in California up to Leavenworth, Washington. I had read the fall foliage was absolutely spectacular around that area, so it was a must see for us. So we loaded our camper up, and along with our dog, Lucca, we took off for a week long camping trip up to Washington and Oregon. Once we got to Leavenworth I couldn't wait to go exploring, so we just started driving toward Lake Wenatchee. All I can say is

We enjoyed the freshly washed desert as the sun came out to shine on the sawtooth sculptured rock formations in the area. The area formations are popular with rock climbers who've dubbed this place New Jack City. Pres and I first got to know each other rock climbing in college. Those days are long behind us, but we enjoy watching others tackle the challenge. The changing sun and moon light constantly created new color and shadows on the rocks which we enjoyed while hiking or from our camping chair view.

The last few miles definitely required four wheel drive in spots. This is one of the few places one can see the Colorado River from the canyon rim. A lucky lottery entry at recreation.gov four months in advance secured me a permit to this scenic off-road paradise. I took this photo from a small hill near my campsite. In contrast to the usual situation, my Four Wheel Camper rig was one of the largest, best-outfitted rigs there. If I stay in a campground, I am usually surrounded by giant RVs. Here, I saw only pickups with roof-mounted tents or off-road trailers. I had a great time with great neighbors.

As the sun angle got lower, the rock formations to the east just glowed with color (part of the Petrified Forest Member of the Chinle Formation topped by Wingate Sandstone). We actually saw a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis that night followed by a million desert stars!

#040 - Kris RodBaja California Sur2009 Ram 4500Custom Total CompositesCamera Used - Phone This photo is from a spot south of San Cosme.  Someone I ran into on the road told me about it. I spent three days there exploring up and down the coast on my paddleboard seeing more dolphins then people. This was sunrise on Sea of Cortez my last morning before moving on.  I've been searching for a true four season truck camper for several years without a lot of luck. I've had a couple campers that claimed to be four season, but basing out of Colorado proved they weren't Rockies four season.   In February 2023, I found a listing for some Total Composite Expedition panels. These panels are substantially thicker then the panels Andreas uses for his normal truck campers. After getting the back story on the panels (originally purchased years ago by Tiger vehicles) and verifying with Andreas, I took the plunge. I rented shop space and began gathering the necessary equipment and supplies to start assembling in November 2023.  My goal was to assemble the panels and have the camper road worthy by the end of February 2024 in order to meet some friends in Baja. It was a bit of work but I was able to get the camper buttoned up, roof hatch, roof fan, lithium batteries, solar, lights, and basic electrical installed in order to get on the road. I've been wanting to get back to Baja since my last trip a couple years ago and spend time exploring the more remote areas in Baja California Sur. It took me almost 2kmi to get down to La Paz to meet some friends, but I made it and spent the next six weeks exploring dirt roads, coastline, and sections of the Baja Divide Trail. It was a great shakedown trip and just scratched the surface of Baja Sur. I plan to head back in February 2025 for round two as well as to head down to Sonora in October/November for another shakedown trip after some additional mods.
