Coming Along

We have been loving the weather lately.

It has warmed up quite a bit and we are finally able to get outside.

Almost time to go camping!

We have been busily preparing the our vintage Apache Ramada pop up camper. 

We still have a bit of a to do list, but are slowly checking things off it.

Papa has been working away on the building type projects,
while Bunny and I are patching, sanding, scrubbing and painting. 

Squirrely has been busy too.
She has just recently started pulling up.

I plan to continue to post updates on the camper as we come along on our list. 
I can't wait to have the it all ready.
Neither Papa nor I have ever been camping (other than in a tent in the back yard).
We are excited for this new adventure.
We have a few nearby places where we are hoping to camp very soon.

Each week I join several linky parties!  What a fun way to share and learn!

  1. we had a camper like that when I was growing up - you just brought back so many good memories!!

  2. We also had a fiberglass sided pop-up growing up. Happy memories there. :) What an exciting undertaking to restore one!

  3. oh I'd love a campervan. can't wait to see where you end up on your travels :)

  4. Looks like fun summer holidays ahead for you all.

  5. We had one of those! We sold it 19 years ago when we made a big move. There were so few made that every time I see one I wonder if it could be ours!

  6. Love it! We too own a pop-up! We had an old Viking years ago and yours looks to be in better shape. We bought our current pop-up a year ago and it was 12 yrs old. It's like new inside but the outside is worn in spots. We store it in the garage. We plan on going camping on Memorial Day Weekend with friends and then 19 days of camping & fun in Colorado in June. If you want to connect with other owners check out Pop Up Portal: Lots of information!

  7. Find fellow Apache owners on Facebook! & Apache love!
