The amazing beauty of nature and the lessons and peace it can bring never cease to amaze me as we travel through the north. With our home on our back, everywhere we stop we feel right at home and with four wheel drive and our Northern Lite that can be just about anywhere we want to be.
Time Northern Lite kicked in for some gas money or something as I keep raving about our rig, but we do love the freedom it provides. Especially now as we find a whole new group who are trying out the RV lifestyle and are pre-booking just about every campsite possible, some even show up. With the mobility of the truck camper we can get spots a lot of units cannot get to or cannot fit into as we travel. To me retirement is not living by the clock or schedule to have to be somewhere at a certain time, been there done that…no more.
Besides the truck and camper another must for me is my trusty old 2013 model OMD Olympus digital camera, with one lens. A great little light travel camera. Gone are the days of big bulky cameras, dozens of lenses and filters and gadgets, I’m too old to carry all that stuff which is seldom used. Little is more as I can have my camera with me all the time, the best images I have witnessed is when I do not have my camera with me. The camera helps me focus and see the amazing beauty in nature I would otherwise walk right by and not even stop for a moment.
One of the main reasons for this blog is to be able to share those images with others who can appreciate them. They are far from National Geographic quality images and appear much more beautiful to my eye, but I have captured that moment in time as is. They also allow me months after while trying to catch up on my blog the chance to enjoy them and the memories all over again…bonus.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I did photographing them.
If you have made it this far you are probably one who can enjoy the amazing beauty of nature, we just have to take time to notice. As a wanna be photographer I love the light.
In order to spend more time and keep current with this blog I will be posting little or nothing on Facebook or Instagram in the near future. If you like the content please subscribe or sign up for email notices of new postings. Also I would appreciate if you share it with those who are like-minded and may enjoy some feeble writing and images from our travels.
Coming up in my next posts a feature on my camp kitchen, Narrow Hills Provincial Park, my solo trip north to discover not so common lakes and rough trails as well as our final fall camping trip. It appears our trip to Arizona is now off so some winter camping and travelling is in the works. A good chance to give my DC to DC charger a work out. (see post DC to DC charger install).
Hope to see you all down the road. Look for the NL and the western hat….Gerry and Charlotte
