Whenever summer rolls around, the IDEA of a vintage camper always seems so fun. Our family had a pop-up, and the smell of that wet canvas? Takes me right back to being on the road headed South. Vintage Campers, Retro Quotes & Hippie Vibes is a trip for flower children and those who adore summer. Maybe it will lighten your spirit or offer relief if the state of modern life has you down. We all need more hope.

Vintage Campers, Retro Quotes & Hippie Vibes
Where are we going these days? Drifting toward healthier horizons? Will the skies be bluer down the road?
Whatever the future holds, we remain on this mysterious adventure TOGETHER as witnesses to all that is transforming.
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 articulated can be a courageous act.
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 hard ground? Insect bites? Notsomuch. I rely on quality sleep and need a quality pillow.
Honeychild! THIS PILLOW is the most 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!
Whether you are a survivalist or more indoorsy like me, I hope quotes sprinkled here soothe your weary mind meaningful ways, happy hippie kittycats.

Psst. Here are a few of my favorite pals being silly at the beach where we attended summer camp together…wait for it…our entire lives. Yep. We went to family camp, band camp, bible camp, and all the camps every summer here together since infancy. For years we lost touch, but thanks to social media, we reunited 15 years ago, and it was as if no time passed. We will be gathering in a couple of weeks, and it is always a love fest as they are hilarious, and we have so much history.
