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

Like Spirit's new gear! We were up in North and South Dakota 2 weeks ago helping our son move to his new facility in Dickinson. We hope to camp up that way some other time, but this was a fast run from Georgia up there with only a couple stops: Mt. Rushmore, Deadwood, and the Badlands. Loved seeing them again but it was all new to our 20-yr.-old grandson who rode with me back and forth with DH on the return trip. Long trip, 3889 miles r.t. and the road trip left great memories.

We had the (mis)fortune to run into the 75th Anniversary of the Sturgis Bike Week where 1.25 million more bikers were expected. When we got there (early) on 8/11, it was like watching a kicked over ant hill releasing all the ants. Wow! What beautiful bikes -- all over the place. No hotels, cabins, campsites available for a 100+ miles around Sturgis. We stayed in Gillette, WY, just to be able to get to Mt. Rushmore for our start back home. Amazing.

Sounds like a nice trip which would take us months! We can't do events as such... Too crowded but I can understand the beautiful bikes.

Taking a break for a few days...

We have not been here in a while. Colorado is now behind us and so is Kansas for sure. Bad Internet connections in isolated spaces, none most of the time, bad back while sitting long periods on the clock, New Mexico is also in the past with its daily storms and now enjoying The Oasis [Texas] for a few days before taking off for Midland next Tuesday, a week from now, to see my favorite spine Dr... This too shall pass as this is no way to live on the road for sure. Surgery even sounds appealing at this time and winter ahead will give me the opportunity and time to recoup. Might even get two new hips which then I will call myself the "bionic rider"! That is because riding cannot stop...

It is still a bit warmer here than I would like it to be but for some reason 90 has become doable for us when in the past 80 was the limit. I guess, just like pain, one can get used to much of everything.

Colorado was pleasant and cool as ever even if also with daily storms, a State we never get tired of visiting and exploring its back roads. As far as New Mexico I had forgotten the quiet campground called "Valley of Fire" where we spent a couple next and even bumped into the "Butler Maps" crew busy of course... mapping! As usual we dropped South a bit too early but with our riding limited to under 100 miles a day I thought it would be a good idea. I had not planned falling backwards but it allowed me to move my appointment sooner and as usual, besides the pain, all works out.

We did stop at Three Rivers where at least 20,000 Petroglyph are still weathering and also as I try every year while visiting a little Chapel up the road dedicated to departed Children, "Santo Nino de Atocha", light a candle for Lance and reminisce about our times past times together. Where we were and where we are now, standing a bit taller on that ladder of Life. The Journey within the Adventures.

Stay well.
