If you’ve been following me on social media over the last couple of years, this will not come as a real shock, but I am obsessed with teardrop campers! I LOVE everything about them. They are so cute and small, and I can camp in a relatively temperature controlled environment without the fear of bugs (or snakes) crawling into my sleeping bag. Honestly, as I have gotten older, I have become more of a glamper, than a camper. I’m not ashamed to admit it.
I’ve been drooling over teardrops for years, and my dream came true in June of 2016 when I bought one! The model name of the camper is t@g. I named her T@gatha (because I also love Agatha
Christie). When I say I am a glamper, I mean I. AM. A. GLAMPER. This thing has an air conditioner, a king sized bed, radio, cable ready TV, and a DVD player. With the exception of the AC, it all can run off the camper’s battery, too. So I could run it off of solar power! I love this little thing. It is so easy to tow and set up. Though, I will ashamedly admit that I still have not mastered backing it up. Someone take my dyke card now.
Normally in January I would take a camping trip – a way to unwind from the busy season of the holidays and prepare myself for the spring festival season. This year my truck’s transmission went out in January. So sadly I have to be an adult and pay off that debt before I can play. For now I will dream about my next trip to the mountains or the beach or Disney World (they have a great campground)!
It is no surprise that my love for the teardrop camper is the inspiration behind my happy camper bib and bodysuit. This particular design has gone through several changes over the years. I think these last changes are the true winners. I really love the colors in the green flannel print I am using – it just screams “nature is calling!” Also, I like the brown bodysuit-it’s a perfect match with the camper image! Sometimes good ideas take a while to execute well. I am always super critical of my own work and the end product. But I am finally one happy camper with this design!
Happy Camping, y’all!
