I think food is a big part of glamping. When we used to backpack (oh gosh, that was a long time ago!) we'd be happy with gruel, freeze-dried slop, and a cup of hot coffee. No more. We have that big beautiful galley, and we use it. We cook 99% of our meals and rarely eat out when on the roll. It's not that it's all gourmet or anything, but it is all home cooked, or I should say, road cooked?

Our rig has a nice pantry, plenty of storage and we pack it well for a trip. No more of that "3 pound limit" business!

When rolling, we simply stop at noon(ish) wherever we are and pull over and make a real lunch. A lot of times it's in some small town where we find a city park, or just some green to walk the dog. It is so much nicer than having to stop in a chain or fast food restaurant, wait a long time, pay more than you want to spend, and maybe not even like the food.

I am a glamper and proud of it. I started camping with the Boy Scouts around 1960 and have been camping every since. Tents were okay for many years, the older I got the harder the ground became. I graduated to a VW Bus for only a short time, to small and I wanted more. I bought my first Airstream last year and have never looked back. This past weekend my family of 4 drove the the California coast. At the campground there were 7 other Airstreams, Ours was the oldest, we certainly did not care we were part of the family. We plan on glamping for many years.

We are totally Glampers!! We boondock a lot but we do it with style!! Just bought a 28' International Serenity to have even more room for our new "glamping lifestyle"..... seriously... we have a better toaster and coffee maker in the AS than the house! I have hand made wooden cheese boards and salad bowls in the Airstream...yep - I've taken mid century modern to the max with the new 28' - can't wait to put my new Eames chairs in it this weekend!! So...if you see us out camping somewhere...stop by for some good cheese and wine!!
