1970s Quotes, Vintage Campers, Airstream Decor & Happy Camper Vibes Now!

It really is an upside down world right now. With gas prices through the roof, I see RVs on the road and think wow, now that’s a luxurious way to travel, man! 1970s Quotes, Vintage Campers, Airstream Decor & Happy Camper Vibes is an escapist, retro road trippin’ romp especially for flower children and secret summer lovin’ cats. Here I am again…a GenX child of the 70s dreamer who fluctuates between under- and over-reacting to cultural, economic, and pandemic 2020s realities. There are days I am filled with buoyant hope and others where I am utterly exhausted with faint echoes of “lemme out of the matrix, man!”

Vintage Campers, Airstream Decor, 1970s Quotes & Happy Camper Vibes

Are we drifting toward healthier horizons? Will the skies be bluer down the road?

Whatever the future holds, we surely remain on this mysterious adventure together as witnesses to the evolution, revolution, and beauty.

Blissful and serene camping scene. Airstream at Pottery Barn is a lovely collection of whimsical and happy camper decor whether we have a vintage camper to put in or not! #airstream #potterybarn #happycamper #whimsicalgifts #vintagecamper #homedecor

Maybe that’s why retro camper wanderlust continues to strike a chord (and is it just the Midwest, or are there more RVs, campers and gypsy wagons on the road than ever?). A good portion of the culture senses that we’re on a personal growth journey.

This bit of poetry from Jeff Foster is not from the 1970s, yet it resonates with a free spirit and comforts me just now:

Everyday life itself often feels like a winding road, and to mindfully and soulfully be here now as Ram Dass so wisely articulated can be a courageous act of self-care.

BTW, if ever there was a Ram Dass lovin’ hippie who embraces #camplife, it is our youngest:

Let’s revisit the folly of happy camper-land, glowing with hippie chic and lovely finds that follow.

My hope is we will also take a few deep breaths and meditative moments.

We’ll consider how an inner landscape of peaceful presence may be possible without a beautiful Airstream, without ever rambling down asphalt in alloyed aluminum.

But First a Confession: I am more of a HAPPY GLAMPER*

*only the bougiest of hippies are bound to appreciate my sentiments here…hahahahaha

It’s true. I’m a fan of wide open spaces and road trips, but sleeping on the ground? Insect bites? Notsomuch. I rely on a quality sleep and a quality pillow.

Honeychild! THIS PILLOW is the most luxuriously designed scrumptious pouf to enhance restful, restorative sleep I have ever owned. Period. It will never flatten, sleeps cool, and has been engineered to offer the ideal support for a lovely sleep!

      Yay! It certainly feels to me that we are entering an era not unlike the late sixties and early 70s as a lot of traditional systems are maybe falling apart, and something new is trying to be born.

    Love this post reminds me of when my ex-husband and I were in our twenties and we traveled around in our 1968 VW bus. From the Mojave desert to San Francisco, Lake Tahoe to Palm Springs and everywhere in between such great memories. My ex has past on but my daughter has the VW in hopes of restoring it one day.
    BTW in your previous post you looked so cute having lunch with your sister & niece, hallelujah for getting back to semi normal!

      What a beautiful picture of cherished memories you have painted – love it! I’m crazy about those VWs and would love to own one for the nostalgia of it all. Thanks so much for adding to the beauty and the kind words.

    Would very much love to see some rooms decorated using paint and furnishings in colors other than pale. Most of what you feature is white or very, very light in color. Do you know of any of your resources that use more bright colors.

    Otherwise enjoy your quotes

    We love this SO MUCH! Thank you for including our pillow in your post – We are so happy it is making a difference for you and your honey 🙂 Plus I have to say, we here at Honeydew are exactly that – the bougiest of hippies, so we feel so at home here 🙂 Love the quotes, love the style, love it all. Thanks again!!
