Tiny Travels!

We have just returned from a week long camping adventure.  We shared this adventure with my dad who has just turned 91!  Together, we rented two teardrop trailers, and headed north to my SIL's home in Sault St Marie where we spent three nights.

You must google "Little Guy Trailers" or "Teardrop Trailers.". They are marvelous little campers...built for just sleeping in...a "portabed" of sorts.

Dad had his own camper, and says he slept very well.  He is a remarkable guy.  He drove part of the way, and his driving skills are still very good.

We were quite comfortable, too. Hubby is a big guy, and I can attest to the fact that he slept!

While in the Sault, we took advantage of the proximity of the border and took a day excursion to Macinaw Island.  For those who aren't aware, Macinaw is an Island where there are no motorized vehicles.  Horses and bicycles are the sole means of travel.  The air was clean and fresh!

These tiny trailers come with many options.  The ones we rented came with a two burner stove and a small sink.  These were not necessary as we had use of our host's bathroom, shower and kitchen.  A small television and DVD player can be added if desired.

We are seriously considering the purchase of one of these units next summer.  They are reasonably priced, easy to pull, and comfortable!


  1. That sounds like a fun trip. I'm intrigued by the Macinaw Island. Must go and google it.

  2. I'm amazed that you took your 91-year-old father camping! He must be in very good health. Love those little trailers!
