Let's talk about the latest craze to hit the PNW - VAN LIFE!
Ok, who am I kidding? Van life has been part of northwest culture forever. Matt and I are currently saving up for a camper van of our very own which made this partnership with GoCamp even more exciting! Think of GoCamp as theAirbnb of camper vans, which allows you to rent amazing vans that belong to rad people in the area. How cool is that?!
Abby and I were incredibly lucky to plan a trip in Roads and Rose, a GORGEOUS luxurious sprinter van from your dreams. We met Roses's amazing owner outside of Portland, OR for a quick training sesh then we hit the road!!
Our route went a little something like this:
Portland - Sisters - Bend - Timothy Lake - Government Camp - Portland!
Part of me is still amazed that we're adult enough to make this happen. Who put us in charge?! Of anything?! I'll let the photos do most of the talking this round. Feast yo eyes!
We stayed in Sisters, OR the first night at a fun campground surrounded by adorable families. Call me crazy but I like having people around when sleeping 'outside'. Matt? Not so much. Give him the spot farthest from civilization and he's a happy man. I'll also admit that we drove into town that night for margaritas + tacos. Hey, we make our own rules. Next stop? Lake Timothy! The most AMAZING campsite I've ever stayed at!
Campfires and open roads and mountains and lakes and lots of laughing plus a two hour adventure in Mt Hood National Forest where we got lost with no cell service (10/10 DO NOT RECOMMEND) and we STILL had a marvelous time! Check out GoCamp to rent a van for your own trip! It's the best sleep I've ever had on a camping trip. I am sold, yall! And how cute is Tifanie? The lovely soul who owns Rose!
