Meet Gidget!

A month or so ago, a friend of mine posted that they were selling their 1956 vintage trailer in order to upgrade to something bigger for their growing family.  I stumbled upon the post on Facebook and my heart jumped out of my chest and up into my throat.  I couldn’t breathe for a minute as I pictured the adventures we could have pulling that sweet beauty behind our car.  I wrote a simple comment on the post.

“Neil?  YES?!”

And in two short words, that trailer became ours.

We have been saving money in an investment account for 3 years – not sure what it would be for, but knowing that it was a good idea.  College fund?  Down payment on our next house?  Flood insurance?  Never in a million years did I think we would spend some of it on a vintage trailer.  Until we did.  We had exactly the amount we needed in our available cash to easily withdraw and with a phone call and transfer of funds, Gidget was a Smith.

Living in the city leads to craving the country.  Wide open spaces where the green meets blue.  Crickets, bird chirping, deep crowded night skies filled with stars.  We figure Gidget will extend our city-living-life a few more years.

Here she is:

My plan is to update you on our campsites, what we wish we had brought, what we’re glad we did, and turn you all into expert campers along with us!

Here’s to our first adventure!

    I am loving hearing about your adventures you guys are so cute!! My husband and I just bought a place in Port Austin this year for the same reason! Speaking of which there are some beautiful campgrounds there right on Lake Huron if you are looking for a place on the big lake! Can’t wait to see where you head next!
