Are you a Camper or a Glamper?


CAMPESSENTIALSI’m definitely a glamper! Zan and I went “glamping” at El Capitan last May and if you’re in Southern California I highly recommend it! It’s an idyllic camping spot next to the ocean, with cabins, teepees and a creek running through it. You can see that post here. I used to do the tent thing when I was younger, but now I’m just plain scared a bear will attack me. I have more fears as I grow older! So I prefer a cabin, with a little bathroom and a warm shower. BUT I do like to cook over a campfire and I can go without a kitchen when camping… well maybe a small fridge would be helpful, but that’s it! I like “roughing” it and making eggs and pancakes over the fire, especially when all of my eggs fall into the fire. That was fun, ha!! I want camping to become a tradition in our family… something we do a few times a year with Romeo and some friends. Since I was in the camping mood I put together a few items I would take with me. Do any of you have any fun camping trips planned for the summer? What are your favorite camping items?


PS I love this store dedicated to Camping stuff!

    Got routed here via Pintrest and saw you went to El Capitan in May. We just booked 3 days for the Fourth of July there and are taking our 3 year old daughter. Your photos look great – I’m looking forward to it now!

      Thanks for stopping by Jennifer! You are going to LOVE El Capitan! And what a perfect place to spend the 4th!! Did you get a little cabin or a tepee? It’s a beautiful spot and make sure you rent the bikes (they’re free!) and ride to the beach. Absolutely gorgeous!!

  2. Love all of these…since I prefer the pretty things in life…I’m going out on a limb and saying I’m a “Glamper”?! ; )
