My husband Robert (webmaster, database manager, and co-marketing director) and I are getting ready for our big camping trip. We are going to travel from our home in Oregon east across the country. We will be doing an on-line journal at our website “The Gallivanters” (now “On The Road Again With Robert & Peggy”). The Gallivanters lists our itinerary and routing.
We are looking forward to traveling back east, seeing family and friends.
Sponsor: All Terrain Campers
Our trip will be sponsored by “All Terrain Campers” manufacturer of our traveling abode, their model “Bobcat” . All Terrain Campers are based in Sacramento, CA.

While we don’t plan on leaving for a couple of months, preparations have been in the works. Yesterday, we had a back-up camera installed on our truck for example.
For me, preparation means drawing, drawing and drawing. I’ve been thinking through what drawing and watercolor painting materials I’ll be taking and how I want them to be arranged. I need to keep my kit lightweight and convenient.
The hard part? Keeping things simple; I have a habit of wanting to take all of my favorite tools with me. The best strategy is to take what I need and will use.
I plan on posting more about our trip. In the meantime, I’m including a drawing I did of our truck with its camper last summer. We were camping in the Olympic Forest of northwest Washington State, our inaugural trip. The camper is extended for camping mode; the top drops down for travel mode.
I invite you to watch for more about our trip soon!
