We sold our camper earlier this year so we could spend more time under the stars in our Kodiak canvas tent. When we went to Michigan last Fall, we tent camped our way up… stopping at Mohican State Park and Put In Bay. Our kids LOVED it. They enjoyed tent camping far more than staying in the camper. It warmed our hearts to see that same joy that we once felt as a child tent camping.
So we sold the camper.
Selling the camper was not only putting our kids in a better situation to enjoy nature but it was also helping us out a lot. We were able to sell the camper and put the money towards bills. From this move we paid of debt and weren’t confined to a camping program. This move broadened our camping “map”.
Next Tuesday is our 5 year wedding anniversary. We thought we would be going on a cruise or another trip to Mexico… but we decided to go camping with our kids. There will be a time where we will get to go alone (Lord willing), so for now we will enjoy this time with our little ones. Actually, it only makes sense that they go with us because we found out we were pregnant with Oaklee on our 1 year anniversary. So naturally, I always think of her and that first year when our anniversary rolls around.
So this year we are going to Blythe Island Regional Park. It’s in southern Georgia and is surrounded by St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Jekyll Island and Brunswick. It sounds so amazing and I can’t wait to explore. We are looking to go to Driftwood Beach which is on Jekyll Island, hike Earth Day Nature Trail, see the Avenue Of The Oaks, and several more. By the way, this campground that we are staying at is 1,100 acres with tons of bikes trails, a lake and domestic rabbits. Yes, you heard me. The camp host apparently has a TON of domestic rabbits that live on the campground that you can walk up to a pet and love on. How crazy is that?! The kids are going to love it! And I can’t wait to share pictures from this trip!
