#067 - Chris MarcoliniBlack Bear Pass, Colorado2017 Toyota Tacoma2016 Four Wheel Camper SwiftCamera Used - iPhone 6sMy wife and I were half way into a 10,000 mile trip when I took this photo.  Little did she know I was searching for some dangerous trails along our route.  As we were passing though Colorado I heard about Black Bear Pass and its reputation.Curious to put the truck and camper to the real test I decided that this pass will be the one.  The camper raised the sketch factor quite a bit with the higher center of gravity and the extra 1,200 pounds of payload.  But the little Tacoma handled it with ease.  On the other hand, the two of us were doubting our abilities to safely finish.  We were excited, nervous and a bit scared.  We may have just been the first truck camper to complete the infamous Black Bear Pass.  There was only one thing we could do afterwards; grab some craft beer!

It's just a random patch of BLM land in south-central Montana.  Being able to camp in spots like this is exactly why we went back to a truck camper after a couple of trailers.

#120 - Brenda and AJ DancerKennedale Speedway Park, Kennedale, Texas2018 GMC Sierra 3500HD2017 Capri RetreatCamera Used - iPhone XSThis was the first day of the IMCA Red River Modified Tour in May 2019. We had raced at Heart O' Texas Speedway in Elm Mott, Texas the night before and had to check everything on the car before the races that night at Kennedale Speedway Park. I was sitting in the car while AJ worked on the brakes.  In the Texas heat, we were able to go into our camper and cool off, which made everything so much better.

I was greeted by a spectacular showing of the northern lights.  No, they did not charge my solar panels and yes, it was cold.  I climbed up on this small hill behind my camp and watched the show framed by a couple of scraggly black spruce trees.

#242 - Jim DavisSoutheast Oregon2009 Toyota Tacoma2016 Four Wheel Camper FleetCamera Used - FujiFilm XT-2Southeast Oregon has some of the darkest skies in the inter-mountain west.  We had a new moon for our Labor Day trip and relatively non-smoky skies as the wildfires were almost non-existent this year.  We found a lovely mountain mahogany grove for one of our camps.  I could not resist the perfect alignment of the Milky Way with our campsite.

We had just driven across the bridge from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island as storms started to blow in.  It made the drive across the bridge a bit scary and white knuckles on the steering wheel were necessary!We had heard about this lighthouse and noondocking spot through other full timers and decided to travel straight there.  It was cold, rainy, and very windy when we arrived.  After a quick walk around, we settled in to the truck camper for the evening.Just after dinner, as Kevin was practicing his banjo, there was a short break in the storm.  The sun shown a beautiful orange hue across the land and waters.  It lasted just a few moments which was just long enough to take a few photos.  We feel blessed to have witnessed such a special gift.

#277 - Julia BerryCordova Pass Road, Colorado2017 Ford F2502015 Adventurer 80GSCamera Used - PhoneThe road was much more difficult to pass than we anticipated.  We had been to the Apishipa Arch on our honeymoon and really wanted to see it again draped in Colorado Autumnal glory.  We learned some things about our camper like keeping an eye on tie-downs and finding out even though we know we latched some access doors does not mean they will stay that way.

#283 - Tim CostelloCrested Butte, Colorado2014 Ram 15002018 Capri CowboyCamera Used - Canon EOS RebelWe lost a good hunting buddy of mine last year and it inspired me to buy a truck camper and travel the country. My three entries are from my travels attributed to his memory. This picture from Crested Butte was taken on an incredible day of trout fishing as the Kokanee salmon were running the Gunnison River. It went from absolutely white out conditions to a beautiful day, this picture is of the latter. Enjoyed every minute of the trip.

#289 - Matt NelsonElk City, Oklahoma2017 Ram 35002007 Arctic Fox 990Camera Used - Pixel 3 XLAfter years of research and planning, I bought my truck and (new to me) truck camper in the spring of 2018.  I made my first cross country drive from Pennsylvania to Arizona in December 2018 to escape the snow for the winter.  On my drive, I was hunting for some Route 66 nostalgia.  I needed to make a stop for fuel and I stumbled across this Route 66 sign just after sunset in Elk City, Oklahoma.  This made a good spot to stretch my legs for a bit and pose the truck to get a cool picture commemorating my trip.

The previous evening, our last at the Grand Canyon, we witnessed both rims joined by a rainbow. We found a place to boondock outside Camp Verde, and storm clouds produced first another rainbow and then this intense sunset.

#580 - Shannon and Shawn JohnsonSea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico2004 Chevrolet Silverado1998 Lance Squire Lite 195Camera Used - iPhone 8PlusThis photo was taken after a 9-hour drive from San Diego.  We drove down the Mex 5 highway, which had recently been damaged due to Hurricanes Rosa and Sergio.  After more than nine bridge washouts/detours, and miles of unpaved and under-construction roads, we were thrilled to pull in to the beachside campsite on the breathtakingly gorgeous Sea of Cortez.  And what a bonus to get there at sunset!  With our truck camper, there’s little to no setup, so we were able to just sit back, relax and enjoy the views!

#608 - Peter MasonInyo National Forest, Glass Mountain Trail, California2013 Ford F1502010 Four Wheel Camper Hawk ShellCamera Used - Nikon D810I enjoy visiting and photographing in California's Eastern Sierra which is quite busy during the summer months. After staying for a week in a developed Forest Service campground, I was looking for an out-of-the-way campsite to spend my last night. I found it by searching the topo map of the Inyo National Forest. This spot is miles from paved road and to my delight gets few visitors. The photo includes Jupiter to the right of the Milky Way, and there is a meteor, too.

#644 - Aaron MacraeOregon2009 Ford F-150Phoenix Pop Up Camper Stealthy MiniCamera Used - Sony A7RiiWhen the going is good, you keep going. We had been traveling all over Oregon and were simply blown away by the landscape. It seemed so surreal how you could be on a snow-covered trail in the mountains and be headed for the sunny oceanside all in the same day. On this particular morning, we woke up in our truck camper after a heavy snowfall in the mountains, and thought it’d be the perfect day to going surfing on the coast. After a full day of surfing, we watched the sun fall behind the horizon and thought to ourselves that life could not get much better than this!
