Doesn’t everyone start out with tent camping? Then you get the “bug” to be surrounded by the great outdoors? As I refused to lay on the ground in a tent in the beautiful Arizona landscape surrounded by the creepy crawlies of the native terrain.
In 2005 we added to our adventures sleeping in the back of the truck or in this little pop up trailer. Most the first trips surrounded hunting or fishing and were shorter trips. Sometimes it was just too cold in the winter to handle the pop up so we reverted to truck camping. Yes, parts of Arizona get cold!
2010 we were still at it, hunting playing, hanging with our boys
Skip ahead to 2013 were we traded in my Chevy Avalanche with the 6 inch lift, which was not much for towing but I loved it anyways for a NEW beautiful Dodge Ram 2500. My most favorite truck…big, beautiful…sigh…
In 2014 we decided to sell our cute trailer and purchase a 33 foot Starcraft travel trailer because we were having a little one soon and wanted a little more comfort. We also decided to sell the dune buggy and bikes and simplify things a bit.
But we couldn’t stop there….the seed for the big rig was planted. We loved the adventures and wanted to continue. We wanted to remain comfortable but simplify life at the same time. We wanted to explore and show our littlest more then just what we could see staying in one place. We wanted adventure.
We stored the Starcraft for a year with a few camping trips and all the while we were planning the big RV Exodus…
