Sisters on The Fly - Girls You'll Love THIS

Sisters on the Fly, Caravans, Campfires and Tales from the Road


Sisters On The Fly, written by Irene Rawlings, introduces readers to the fabulous network of sisters who have bonded over vintage camping trailers, martinis, fishing and good ol’ sisterhood.  The book includes fabulous photos, recipes, suggestions for renovating a trailer and more.  


Currently for sale at J.J.Jackson’s in downtown Nevada City, it’s a great gift idea for anyone who loves camping and wants to get inspired by this growing group of sisters.  

The best advice on decorating your trailer, “My sister, Maurrie, and I have a pretty simple rule,” says Becky.  “Hook your trailer up and take it for a ride. Everything that ends up on the floor is too much.”  If you’ve got a “Calamity Jane, Mustang Sally, Rhinestone Cowgirl, Whisky Rose” named trailer, you’ll feel right at home with your Sisters on the Fly.

Book review by Erin Thiem @ OutsideInn

Do check out Sisters On The Fly website, I'm still exploring it myself and am sure I'll have a fallow up post. If you don't live in our awesome community then you can buy the book online at their website. 

Thanks Erin for such a GREAT find.

Happy Hour @ The Campground

In my 20's the drink de jour was any beer someone brought or a Bacardi and coke


In my 30's it was a Belvedere Martini, two olives, dry, up

In my 40's drinking it's a glass of wine with an occasional cocktail or micro brew

When I plan group camp trips I often make the first night "Happy Hour" at our site and ask my fellow campers to bring an appetizer. This is a great way to break in the weekend as well as an easy dinner for everyone who just set up camp and doesn't feel like cooking a full meal.



BAR TOOLS TO HELP WITH 
HAPPY HOUR AT THE CAMPGROUND



Waiter Bottle Opener
This type of opener is great and compact. It can cut the cap off of a wine bottle as well as open it and opens bottled beer and other beverages as well.

Williams Sanoma 
Blenders

Are we making margaritas blended? If that's your thang then this is the tool for you

Unbreakable Glasses
Plastic or stainless steel seems to be the best choices here. Check out these favorites.

Travel Bar and Flasks

These are totally fun. They run about $ 40 - $100. Keep in mind most of these sets have real glasses. You can use real or replace with plastic. I've used both, but now with a child I keep it unbreakable. Shop picnic sites like the ones listed below. The one shown above is from Picnic Time for $101.
