Amarillo road trip - aka get camper! (the iPhone version)

On Monday we hit the road and drove 6 hours to meet my cousins (halfway) in Amarillo, Texas. It was a fun little road trip and the best part was finally getting our new vintage camper! So get this: after meeting up with my cousin at the Furr's cafeteria parking lot, some old guy tried to buy our camper three minutes after we got in to look around. It was so funny. B was all, this camper is already sold! What can I say? She's gorgeous. People love her.

So yeah, there was a lot of squealing (from me) and picture taking. While camper and I were having a moment, B got the 411 for camper stuff from G. Which is a good thing since I know diddly squat about that stuff. Then we hooked her up, hugged goodbye and hit the road to stay the night in Palo Duro Canyon state park. Which btw, has a pretty much precarious road to get into the canyon. And yeah, that's where we took camper the first time.

We celebrated with a pizza and cokes the first night in the camper then got some rest for the drive back. On Tuesday it was home or bust.

I'm so excited to decorate the camper - for sure will post before and after photos. Because hello, we need an official tour right?! Can't wait to take her out for another adventure real soon. Love love love. p.s. if you can't tell already I am stupid excited about this. Thanks so much to my amazing cousins.


  1. You should name it Rocinante, like from Don Quixote, but not really. Have you ever read Travels With Charley by John Steinbeck? It's a great book; it's his memoir about traveling across the US in his camper (named Rocinante), with his trusted poodle Charley.

  2. Awesome! Can't wait to see the adventures y'all have with your camper! :D

  3. Love it! Your photos of this new adventure are great. I'm loving the truck and camperrrr side view one and the one with the flamingos. Guess this means you want that cute little turquoise laundry basket back for your camperrrr. Ha, ha. :)

  4. Wink wink on the BNSF trains (Chanc's employer :)) Congrats!!
