But, I wanted to share with the world our fun new car game. I'm not expecting this game to catch on. In fact, I'm sure most of you will scratch your head and say... "oooooookay...."
The origin of the game began like this. Randy wanted a camper top for his truck for quite a while for all of our weekend traveling, etc. (soccer gear, chairs, camera, ice chests etc.) and I agreed a camper would be a great idea.
So, he found one on Craigslist and drove to Dallas to pick it up. It was exactly what he wanted... except it was WHITE. His truck is black. So, we had to make plans to have that fixed. Goodness knows, a big ol white camper top on a black truck was not gonna cut it.
He had the camper vinyl wrapped in a carbon fiber design and it's really cool!
But here's the thing... ever since he got his camper, the girls and I have been noticing campers on trucks. And you know what? There are a lot of mismatched camper tops. A lot of "old school" camper tops on newer trucks and quite a few "redneck" camper tops out there. Don't believe me? Keep your eyes peeled and you'll find them too.
Here's what I'm talking about.
(As you will note, Randy's truck is the black truck with the camper and the three bikes hanging off of the FRONT of the truck. While this doesn't fall into the "redneck camper" catergory, it does fall into the general redneck category to which, Randy is proud... and offended... all at the same time.
So, the game is this...
- 1pt for spotting a camper on a truck
- 1pt for spotting a mismatched camper
- 1pt for spotting an "old school" camper (which is usually ALSO mismatched)
- 10pts for spotting a "redneck" camper (believe me, we've each spotted at least 2-3 of them!)
Let me just say... we've gotten into some LIVELY games in the vehicle over this. We plan to play it on our road trip to Yellowstone... only this time, we're really going to keep track of the points. Everyday. It will be fun and I'll be sure to keep you posted on who wins.
