Default MMTPT479 -- Sept 26, 2017 Are You a Camper or a Glamper?

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #479


ARE YOU A CAMPER OR A GLAMPER?


Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!

I, Sandy (stampingwriter), am your Tickle a Teapotter hostess this month and this is my story!

Katie and Carrie recently inherited the Happy Times Campground near Teapotterville from their grandfather. Sadly, Grandpa had let it get a little rundown, and they are having a raging debate about how they should revive it.
“Let’s keep it like it’s always been, a place where folks can bring their tents, canoe around the lake, build a fire, and roast hot dogs. Nothing fancy, just good old family time,” Katie said.
“We have to change with the times,” Carrie argued. “I just read an article about Millennials, and it said when they go camping, they like everything to be ready for them. They want the tents to be set up and the queen-sized air mattress to be full of air when they show up. They like nice, big tents with chandeliers. Or maybe rental RVs. They want an app where they can get the ingredients for s’mores delivered right to their campsite, so they don’t have to plan ahead and buy marshmallows. It’s all about making it easy so they can just enjoy the outdoors.”
As you can imagine, this provoked quite a reaction from Katie, especially when Carrie explained “they call it glamping – kind of glamorous camping.” But the cousins have always gotten on well together, and in the end they decided to compromise. They would be open for folks who want to bring their own tents and camping vehicles, and they would also provide “glamping accommodations” for those who wanted them (although they can’t figure out what the article meant about chandeliers in the tents, so don’t go come here expecting chandeliers.) They even keep ingredients for s’mores on hand, for people who forgot to buy Hershey bars. They are curious to see if they will have more campers or glampers

CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:
Bring tents, RVs, and whatever you use to enjoy the great outdoors. If you're not into sleeping outdoors, the camp welcomes day visitors, so bring canoes, picnics, a hammock, hiking boots, or whatever other "toys" you want to bring along.

EPEC ~ (EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES!)
Let's celebrate nature with something green.

DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is each other! Once a month, we send our cards to each other! A little payback and reward to the teapotters for always sending their cards to the recipient of the Destination Station.


Sabrina has started this new thread in the Teapot Tuesday Extras Forum. If you are participating in the card exchange please go to this thread and follow the instructions.

Here's my card: MMTPT479 Let's Go Camping

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #479 Challenge Gallery.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT479 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

- Ladies, if possible please wait till the challenge has gone live before uploading to the gallery! Thanks so much.

That way, you can link your card here at the same time that you post.

Here's mine: MMTPT479 Camping in the Woods
Campers all the way here. It often elicits a little incredulity when we say we were camping and people say "In tents? Taking them up and down and sleeping on the ground??". But we love it.


Here are a couple of views of one campsite where we stayed this summer. The one in the mountains which I refer to in my write-up - although this year with high winds we didn't try the descent along the volcanic ridges, we stayed comfortably on slightly lower ground. And got to see a chamois leaping across a patch of snow.

Thanks for a really fun challenge, Sandy.

No worries, Anita! The cheater gives us extra time to get our thinking caps on and spend as much time as we like creating our cards, but if people upload their cards early, than anybody else who wants to check the challenge out... there's nowhere for them to find it . So usually the only early upload should be the hostess. Hope that makes sense? And as I said, no worries....

Since Sabrina posted the challenge for me, I can't edit the post to link to my card, so here it is.
As I told Sabrina, we moved from tent camping to a teeny-tiny pop-up camper when my DH said his back couldn't take sleeping on the ground any more. This photo is from about a month ago, when we camped at a state park in northern Alabama.

I know that corner in the mountains, not the camping but the mountains, it's so quiet and serein over there, but here in the Pyrenees it's even better

I live close to an Airstream dealership, so my dh and I toured them one day. If we ever start traveling around the states, that would be my choice! Here's my card, MMTPT479 Camping in Style! See, I made the trailer into an Airstream
