Celebrating 2 years of overlanding in our FWC!

April 2-5, 2021 Our inaugural trip happened two year ago almost to the day, when we headed to the Stanislaus National Forest and then Yosemite, to “try out” our new rig.

France Trip - Day 8 September 15, 2019 We finally went to bed last night at a reasonable hour where I could wake up in time for a sunrise jog.

Stanislaus National Forest

April 5-7, 2019 We took planning our inaugural pop up camper trip very seriously and wanted to ensure it was perfect. And Lumsden campground was a phenomenal find! We were able to pull up right next to the Toulumne River which provided soothing ambient noise for sleeping. The weather was perfect, albeit a bit chilly… Continue reading Stanislaus National Forest
