  1. What a great trio of photos! Glad to see this set settle to the top! Fine photo contest, Mike. Congrats to Guy, Ryan and Dave! Hope more will participate in 2016! Till then, I am heading out to find a spot just like Dave Rogers did, to camp a few nights!

    See you out there, in our Truck Campers!


  2. Congratulations to all the winners of TCA first time photo contest, there were many fine photos submitted making the contest very competitive.

  3. Hi Mike,

    Does Guy Van den Branden have a travel blog? I’d be interesting in reading how and his wife manage to get along in the tiny space of an 835, especially for such a long time as two years.

    My 835 (“Lily Lance”) is a 1985 and after a year in her by myself for occasional outings I’m still working up protocols for living in Lily’s microcosm. Even the International Space Station is bigger…we’re both solar, but the ISS has a better view.

    Best regards,

  4. And a great winning picture it is! A very big thanks to you Mike, for the chance to enter a cool contest and good luck with the new magazine. I look forward to seeing more!!
    Dave Rogers
