A quick trip up to Stub Stewart State Park for a week. Getting a weekend reservation anywhere has been impossible this summer, so Todd decided to give working remotely a try. Theoretically, as long as he has a decent connection, it shouldn’t matter where “home” is. This park is just an hour from our home and it has great cell service so it was a perfect place to experiment.
It was a different experience for sure! For us camping has always been a small adventure. Typically we explore little towns, eat at new restaurants, visit local shops and find plenty of time to relax – Things that we’re not doing so much during the pandemic. Working 9-10 hours also limits what you can do on a given day. Working on the road always looks glamorous – but I think we experienced a bit of reality during this trip.
It’s certainly nice to have this opportunity though. We’re lucky that we can pack up our own small home and get a change of scenery. We’re planning on exploring this travel/work option a bit more in the fall when the summer crowds thin out a bit.
It wasn’t a typical camping trip for us, but we still saw some pretty scenery in the evenings and returned home with plenty of happy memories.
Love your blog and pictures!
I often see what I think is a Solo firepit in you photos. Am I right about that? If so, would you mind telling me what size it is and how you like it? Thanks a bunch! Love your blog❤️
Hi Sheri! We have the bonfire and we take it everywhere. We love it. The fire burns hot and there is virtually no smoke. It’s portable and easy to throw in the truck…I think you’ll be happy with it 🙂
Thanks a bunch for your reply! I’m quite certain that a Solo firepit is in our future. My husband and I recently retired and purchased a 2020 Airstream Bambi16rb in September. I quickly found my way to your blog and fell in love. We live in Washington state and I love playing with photography so your site is like finding a kindred spirit for me. Thanks for all of your sharing. We will definitely be finding our way to Oregon in the future and using your blog as a guide.
JR and Fatima here at LL Stubbs. Got a trailer to put the dogs in so we can ride the trails. It’s gonna be fun and I’m gonna burn some serious calories.
Love your blog, read so much about your 16′ Bambi before we purchased our Caravel.
Just found from the photo that we have the same mini Nespresso machine, haha!
Thanks a lot for such a beautiful and informative blog!
