Making memories

What's the most important thing you can make? Memories!

We sold our camper last week. I was so sad to see her go after two amazing years of adventures. We took her to the Redwoods, Smith Rock, the coast, Pinnacles National Park, Crater Lake, and a million other places. But it's time for her to help another family make memories now. We sold her to a nice couple who are enjoying empty nesting after raising a brood of boys. As silly as it feels to type this, I feel so much better knowing that they seem like the type of people who will take good care of the camper and take her on lots of fun trips. 

So what's next?

Well, a few months ago we kind of unexpectedly won a camper in an online government auction for $500. My hubby and I made the trip out to Wyoming in February to pick it up - advice: don't visit Wyoming in February - and he immediately got to work tearing it apart so that we can fix it up.

Life kind of got in the way and the camper's been hanging out for a few months. Now that our other camper is making memories elsewhere and we'd like to go camping like yesterday, we're feeling particularly motivated to get this thing road worthy. So be on the lookout for more updates about Dale*, the vintage camper. 

* The camper is a Red Dale, so naturally my husband name him Dale. I typically like to make inanimate objects female, so maybe I should nickname her Della? Sounds fair to me.
