Landon & Maggie head through the Colorado high country on a car camping adventure with the iKamper X-Cover! In Colorado, there’s no need to settle for an average campsite. Whether it’s a one-night stopover after a long day’s hike or a base camp for a few days of fishing or relaxation in the mountain air, you’ve worked hard to get there and might as well enjoy it. The public land access for hopping on the road, finding a public camping spot is limitless. Having the ability to car camp is the most versatile means of accessing unique locations throughout the high country.

Like many National Parks, Zion has a free shuttle that will take you to many of the main stops along the Canyon Scenic Drive. What we didn’t realize, is that when the shuttle is running during the summer months, absolutely no private vehicles are allowed on the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive!! The only access through the scenic drive is by the free shuttle bus! So we were pretty bummed when we saw that because we would have loved to stop at a few places along the route and since we had our dog, Chevy, with us- the shuttle was not an option because there are no dogs allowed on the shuttles. This is also where most of the trailheads are for hiking- so if you’re looking to hike at Zion, be prepared to take the shuttle (and don’t bring your pets along!)

After spending the previous day at Arches and Canyonlands, we woke up at the KOA in Green Riverand headed out to Capitol Reef which was about a 1.5 hour drive.

Again, we knew going into this trip that we would have our dog, Chevy, with us and according to National Park rules, you cannot bring your dog on hiking trails with OR without a leash. Here at the pet rules for Capitol Reef Park specifically! So, we knew that our trip would consist of a lot of driving, sight seeing, short walks, and stopping at overlooks for photos!

When we arrived, we found a pull out where we could pop up our iKamper to enjoy lunch before exploring the park! One reason why we wanted to get a rooftop camper was because we loved our experience renting a camper van in Yosemite, and wanted a similar feel for our jeep! We loved how we could simply pull over and relax by taking 2 minutes to pop the top up on our Skycamp! It was also just wonderful for camping because we knew we would be exploring until the sun went down, and we didn’t want to have to deal with setting up a tent in the dark. The iKamper rooftop camper sets up in only a couple of minutes, so it makes life easy on the road!

After combining our love for diving and photography since childhood, during a decade of experiencing the world below the waterline, a change was eventually overdue. With a lifelong passion for taking pictures still in focus, we hung up the fins and decided on a big one. Long story short, sold our cottage in the country, pared down the possessions to a few boxes and packed what we thought we’d need on the bikes. We’ve lived a few trips but this one took the prize. A life-changing adventure ensued lasting over four years.

Nothing like a good old fashioned road trip with great company. We spent six days roaming around the Southwest corner of the US and had a blast off-roading, cooking gourmet meals and creating life long memories. Cheers, friends!

The Great Sand Dunes were so cool! The juxtaposition between the sand dunes and the big mountains in the background was so wild! We were there in Mid-May, and the temperature was chilly and it was so windy. They were actually advising people to wear long pants and shirts because the wind was so strong and the sand stings your skin in strong winds!

It’s here! 5 years of marriage for us! Every year, Tony and I forget about your typical anniversary gifts (and every holiday for that matter), and celebrate our marriage by traveling! We’re trying to hit as many National Parks as possible in our lifetime, so when we were deciding where to go this year- we knew Utah would be the perfect place because there are so many!

We love road trips. Something about the changing scenery, the podcasts, the conversations, and spontaneity of it makes me giddy. And we love that we get to bring our 10 year old English Setter along for the ride! So even though the drive from Minnesota to Utah is long, we decided to tackle this trip in our jeep, and stop in Colorado along the way!

Entering into the Overlanding lifestyle, we didn’t have a good feel of how much we would get to camp along the way, but we were so surprised with all the camping opportunities at any given place with the pop-up iKamper. We ended camping a grand total of 148 nights along the entire trip. Out of those, we had a mix of “formal” campsites, “wild” camping in the lax outdoors of the southern regions, and “informal” camping sites, anything from parking lots to gas stations. If we were not camping, we were houseguests or stayed in hostels when we chose to stay in the cities.

This massive country is known for its wide ‘pampas’ grasslands, BA’s sexy tango dance, and more juicy meat parrilladas than you could imagine. The Patagonia region is shared by Chile and Argentina, so we hopped back and forth between the two (8 times actually) snaking around the Andes peaks and chasing the glacier lakes.

After crossing the Bolivian border, we descended into the Atacama desert in Chile. We spent a few days exploring the majestic desert landscape before continuing south straight to the cosmopolitan cities of Santiago and Valparaiso. We didn’t wait long to get to the grand finale of all Pan-Am adventures: Patagonia. Touching the Atlantic, Pacific, and Southern oceans, Patagonia is the southern region of the Americas, where only the brave and determined arrive to witness its glacial beauty and smell the freshest air in the world. Patagonia shares is pristine landscape with both Chile and Argentina, and one of the best ways to see Chile’s side is touring down the Carretera Austral (Southern Highway).
