What is the first thing you think of when it comes to camping? Pulling up at dusk just in time to fumble through the nearly impossible tent set up before it’s pitch black outside. Using your best inflating skills for your sleeping mats to ease the pain of the hard ground below your sleeping bag. Lying awake at 2am cursing yourself for forgetting your ear plugs (Do people really like the sounds of crickets to help them sleep?).
Wait, wasn’t this nature trip supposed to be relaxing?
Maybe you’ve never done the traditional camping excursion because you are already tired just thinking about it. We get it. We’ve had some pretty ridiculous camping experiences ourselves. But we’ve also had some amazing experiences. And despite all the not-so-sunshiny scenarios painted above, there is lots of awesomeness in tent camping. I mean, S’mores by the campfire or a cold alcoholic beverage (for the adults of course) will usually take the edge off of any early set-up chaos and the serenity brought by being outdoors is sure to feed your soul.
There were more horrors in 2020 than any of us want to recount but one silver lining is that people really reconnected with outdoor adventuring. What’s also impressive with the more widespread affinity for camping and glamping is that camping can now be done in soooo many ways. You no longer have to suffer that painful tent set up and hauling coolers and bags of food and flashlights and all the things (Truthbomb – we still love to camp this way occasionally even though its a lot of work).
Among the rage for camping experiences are the many done-for-you glamping style accommodations – like (drum roll pleeeze) vintage trailers. How freaking cool is it to be able to show up somewhere for your “get-out-of-the-house-and-enjoy-the-outdoors” vacation and roll up to a funky vintage trailer that has been beautifully renovated on the inside with some insta-worthy beauty on the outside and stocked full of basic amenities to make your stay easy-breezy-beautiful?
Now, we may be biased. I mean, this is our business. But part of why we made it our business is because of the personal experiences we’ve had camping this way.
In the world today we are busy. Most of the people we know are hustling, and juggling, and doing somersaults and backflips throughout daily life – in their jobs, in their family lives, all of it! What better way to unwind than going back in time with some vintage camping feels, some sand and salt between your toes, and some siestas under the sun?
Leisure is the lifeblood to longevity. We all need it. You’ll likely enjoy your people more too while you’re doing it (well, at least after you’ve survived the car packing and the road trip to get to your destination ;-)!
The Holidays Delivered is all about bringing you that throwback outdoor experience with some modern day amenities to allow you to truly recharge your soul batteries while you disconnect from your usual daily life!
