Getting Ready for Yellowstone

As many of you know we recently purchased a truck camper for our dually pick up truck. We wanted a camper that was easy to take with us no matter where we went. The truck camper was perfect for the two of us. This past weekend we took out third camping adventure in our new camper.  We have been taking trips to get ready for a big trip in September - we are heading to Yellowstone for two weeks.
The 1st of July we went to Pennsylvania  - middle of July to northern Wisconsin and our last trip was to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
We spend 4 days and 3 nights at a really nice resort  - Log Cabin Resort and Campground located about 2 miles west of Curtis Michigan. It is the oldest campground resort in the state of Michigan.  We had a fantastic time....very relaxing. The Log Cabin Resort & Campground has numerous cabins - on the shore of Big Lake Manistique. Their camp
sites are a good size - we did not feel like our neighbors were too close. We had plenty of room for our camping activities.  Bath house was very clean and the resort was well kept. I highly recommend the Log Cabin Resort and Campground for anyone that would like a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Michigan's UP is beautiful country!

The reason we have been taking numerous camping trips is to make sure we have everything we need for our two week adventure to Yellowstone. After each trip we have a list of items we need. I think one of the hardest things about purchasing a new camper is the learning curve on what is needed and how to store items in the new camper. Since the Truck Camper is compact - we need to pack wisely making sure we have what we need utilizing every inch of storage space.

Our goal for the next couple weeks is to get our camper ready to roll for our two week adventure. I will be posting pics and sharing helpful camping info prior to our trip. I will be sharing our Yellowstone adventure trip once we return.

If you are a camper or thinking about camping make sure to stop back for some insight on camping Do's and Don'ts. I definitely have a few tips on what not to do!

  6. We're saving up to get a 31' trailer next summer. But I am amazed that the truck campers have a awning now! I remember them back in the day they didn't.
