DSC07948_copyCamping brings people together, and what could be more cozy than a vintage trailer and teardrop trailer gathering to experience a truly nostalgic version of camping? This weekend, we head off for our first teardrop trailer gathering since we moved to Arizona earlier this year. I’m so excited. I always love camping, but I especially love it when I know I’m gonna meet some great people.

This gathering’s in northern Arizona at the Kaibab Lake Campground near a town called Williams.  The campground is part of Kaibab National Forest and is roughly 60 miles away from the Grand Canyon.

We’ll join what looks like a nice group of folks who gather under the name Arizona Roundup. Event participants own either teardrop trailers or vintage trailers dated pre-1980. Check out the Arizona Roundup web page if you are interested in future camping events in the Arizona area open to vintage trailer owners and teardrop trailer owners (both vintage AND new).

As for us, we’re looking forward to the pot luck dinner on Saturday. Mark is making his Sweet Potato Curry Chicken recipe in a cast-iron Dutch Oven. Can’t wait to meet the other folks and see what they’ve got under their pot tops!

Happy 4th of July, folks. Have a safe holiday. Go out and make a [few] new friends!
