Glampour Lust

I don’t need a fiction novel to help me escape anymore.  All I have to do is close my eyes and I’ve already wished myself away into a land surrounded by majestic mountains and sometimes sprawling prairies. 

I’ve always been the kind of girl that lived outside.  I can’t sit still long enough to have anything inside hold my attention.  When I was little if I wasn’t at Girl Scout camp I was playing with the boys or on a fishing trip with my dad or swimming at the pool.  I’ve always belonged in the fresh air.   

Lately though I have a new obsession; a huge lust.  Beyond my cob house, beyond the organic farm and even beyond babies I’ve dreamt up a dream far too marvelous.  It all started with one of my favorite magazines  Mary Jane’s Farm.  It’s a lovely magazine filled with recipes, aprons and organic farming tips.  Nestled in there though was a great article about Sister’s on The Fly.  I was hooked.  Day one I rushed home from work with that issue in hand and sat down at the computer.  I figure I spent the next 2 hours finding everything I could about Glamping (Glamour Camping) and about Sister’s on The Fly.  The obsession was born!  I decided right then and there that I had to have a camper and I had to travel.  My dreams normally consist of going to every single National Park in America.  Sometimes they include visiting Intentional Communities and Organic Farms too.  All this traveling in my fabulous Glampour!!! (My word! Eek! My glamorous camper….get it! Hehehe!)

 Since then the reality has set in.  I love my house and I love my friends and that I would need a truck and a camper to do this but….the dream hasn’t died.  Check out some of these adorable campers and the Flickr sets I found them in!

All green and swanky!

  1. This is fantastic! 🙂 A friend of mine has been trying to describe to me the article she read about this phenomenon for weeks, and I think your blog is what she was talking about. I’m currently living in a 1953 Serro-Scotty Sportsman (i.e., disturbingly cute little camper), and all of this inspires me to make it fabulous and get out there on the open road, come summer (or at least weather that doesn’t involve five-foot snow drifts).
