Hipcamp Adventure Number One!

Hello Fellow Adventurers! Gourmet Girl Gail here. If you missed our post last week, it’s because the lights went out in France’s Loire Valley where Denise is setting up camp these days. Her internet, which runs through the phone lines over there, was down due to high winds. With any luck, we’ll be hearing from […]

Central Coast Adventure

Greetings Everyone, Gourmet Girl Gail here. Recently, I took my Roadtrek 190 Versatile (“Gone with the Wind”) up to San Simeon State Park. She was swaying on the road quite a bit, and I’m not sure why. I’m having new shocks put in next week, so hopefully that’ll help. In the meantime, I’m holed up […]

Jalama Beach, California

Dear Friends and Fellow Campers, My latest news is that I’m taking up RVing in my recently purchased Roadtrek 190 Versatile! My maiden voyage was to Jalama Beach, about an hour and a half north of Santa Barbara. Its rather remote location makes it an ideal place for campers, surfers, and at certain times of […]

Bass Lake with Sisters on the Fly!

Hello Everyone, We apologize for our absence last month. Life happens! But we hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend. Summer fun has officially begun, and the Gourmet Girls trust you have some wonderful plans this season! I’ve written about Sisters on the Fly before.

Mythic Marfa

Greetings! Gourmet Girl Gail here. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my drive to Austin, Texas, with a stopover in Marfa. I’d never heard of Marfa until my niece discovered it with her brother on a cross country trip. Rather emphatically, she said, “I could live there.” After a bit of research, I […]

It’s National Park Week!

Hello fellow travelers and campers! Gourmet Girl on the Go here. While Denise is in the Loire Valley with jackhammer in hand, tearing down plaster from the walls of her new house, I’ve been on a two-and-a-half week road trip to Austin, Texas, and back. My sole reason for driving was to visit Marfa, Texas […]

Hipcamp Is Not Only for Hipsters

Greetings! Gourmet Girl Gail here with another bucket list adventure item for 2018. I joined Hipcamp several years ago but haven’t taken the opportunity to check out any of their campsites, yurts, or cabins. The mission of Hipcamp is to get more people outside. They’ve got over 285,000 U.S. locations, including campsites, ranches, vineyards, farms, […]

2018 Camping Bucket List

Greetings Everyone! Gourmet Girl Gail here. We’re finally getting back to a bit of normalcy after the fires and mudslides in the Santa Barbara area. Although I and most of the people I know weren’t physically affected, I think psychically it has taken its toll. It was hard to wrap our minds around the idea […]

There is so much to be grateful for, and we feel blessed each and every day for our good friends, including all of you, and the wonderful possibilities for new adventures and experiences in the future. A couple of weeks […]
