Welcome to CanvasCampers!

Message from the Mayor:
Hello, I'm glad you found your way to the CanvasCampers website and message forum.  After more than 20 years in the camping community including 3 other websites... We’ve decided several years ago to start something new and take a different approach from the same old boring forum site.  We are creating a single place for all the camping needs, designed by campers for both the New and Experienced Campers.

My interest years ago were to bring people together with the love of camping and the outdoors, to promote family time together and family memories. My goal today hasn't changed.

Welcome, JoeCamper

Wishing you many happy times in your new home, Ara. It sounds like you have got a great plan. Congratulations.

Thank You.... It is going to take a while!!! And here I thought it would all be done in a couple weeks...  :)

Coming to terms with the future. Big Bend. TX

I feel as I have traded "Old Faithful" for a skill saw, drill, jigsaw, plywood, shovel, rake, you name it! And I have part time. Undertaking a permanent [a hard word to pronounce!] home for the future is a task I am discovering will take more time than I thought. Especially while doing most of it myself having never done such work before. I have the utmost respect for carpenters lately! That is an art I do not possess or have any experience with.

Yet, we manage to get away within these three million acres which constantly stare at us, call our name while the weather is still perfect meaning a short sleeve T shirt is the norm. The stress of finishing it all is behind me, it will get done when it gets done. The discoveries on those roads traveled dozens of times are still present as even Terlingua offers new sights, new stores and people passing by or moving in. A donut shop open on the weekends! That is big for here... and good!

Spirit continues to roam around freely. This space is also his paradise where there is no leash. We walk the land seeing the changes after the storms, new paths, vegetation dying from the past summer heat and the ones thriving from the recent rains. It is a constant change on this stage we discovered in years past. Who would have ever known this would change from a home base to some day where we will rest when this body gets too tired from roaming around this huge country we live in. I don't have to come to terms with that notion, not yet. I do think however I am doing the right thing.

I am also still working on our Photo Coffee Table Book. Probably will be another couple months until that one is ready, that task also turns out not to be as easy as I thought. In the meantime "Freedom on Both Ends of the Leash" is still available on our Journal, on Amazon and in all electronic formats.

Enjoy and stay well. Happy upcoming Holidays... just in case we do not make it back here before.


Till next time.

Stay well.
