City Girl Goes Camping

I'm city girl...DH is a country boy. I grew up about an hour outside of Boston. He grew up in Milwaukee. My family vacations were to Disney World. His family vacations were camping 'Up North'. He loves hunting, fishing, and hiking. I love sewing, reading and shopping.

When we first got married I avoided going 'Up North' if at all possible. Why? Well ... it's full of nature, bugs, dirt and ticks...and did I mention bugs and dirt?

Then DH bought an ATV. He suggest we go trail riding 'Up North'. Okay, fine. So we put our ATV on a trailer, drove 3 hours, crated the dogs in his Uncle's cabin and hit the trails. It was fun. A few hours in, DH turned to me and asked "wanna drive?" Sure. 30 minutes later I was hooked. By the end of the day it was obvious that we were going to have to buy an additional ATV.

Two ATVs and a few years later we are ready to try out some new trails. So we did what any sane and logical couple (where one person doesn't like camping) would do...we bought an RV. Well technically it's a toy hauler, which means that the back end is a door that opens up and we can drive the ATVs inside. There are hooks on the floor so that we can strap the ATVs down. 

The first thing my good friend Erika said when I told her that we bought an RV was "Kat, you realize that nature will still be there when you open the door right?"  HA HA HA she knows me too well. 
Regardless, I'm excited about the idea of driving around the country with our dogs and our ATVs...trying out new trails, seeing new beautiful places, meeting new people. We are going on our first trip soon. I'll be sure to post all about our first adventure.

Welcome to Calico Cali Designs! I’m Kat, digitizer and sewing enthusiast. I learned how to digitize in 2010 from master digitizer Walter Floriani…it was an amazing experience. Soon instead of spending my time sewing, quilting and stitching out other people’s embroidery designs, I was sewing, quilting and stitching out my own embroidery designs. I created this blog, not only as a place to share my embroidery designs, but also as a place to share all the things I make, sew, paint, embroider, and create. You’ll see posts about my life, my studio, patterns I’ve sewn and products I’ve tested. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them. Follow me on twitter . Hugs!! – Kat
