In a previous post on truck love, I may have short-changed our Outfitter camper; it garners a great deal of attention – especially the pop-up nature of the camper.
As an example of camper love, we were driving from Cachi to Salta, both Argentina – btw a gorgeous road – when we stopped for a cup of coffee.
As we were enjoying the coffee and the scenery, a gentleman, Carlos, walked up to us with a huge smile on his face. With enthusiasm he proclaimed that a camper / truck combo such as ours was his dream. And the fact that we showed up at the same “hotel” cafe where they were staying – he is an author writing about the region – was a sign that the time had come to buy one.
Carlos and his wife Marcela were a lovely couple and quickly invited us to dinner at their house in Salta; unfortunately by the time they would be back in town, we would already be in Bolivia. But we had a great chat about the camper and the truck, and hopefully we inspired them to pursue their dream…
