Have You Earned Your TomorrowBy Edgar Guest
Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through; Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?
Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along? Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng? Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way, Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?
Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast, That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?
Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say, You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?
There are fewer things more fun than a road trip. The open road, windows down, wind in your hair- it’s the experience of a lifetime. If a cross country road trip is also on your bucket list you surely have some top destinations in mind like the Grand Canyon and the largest ball of yarn in Cawker City, Kansas. And if you also like all things retro, funky and a little off-beat, then you are definitely going to want to check out this new type of resort!
A trailer park resort might not sound as glamorous as a 5-star hotel, but trust us, it’s better. Chic vintage trailer parks have everything you could possibly want and need, and you’ll want to book a stay at every single one of them.
If you are looking to connect with nature but without the tents and sleeping bags, you’ll want to check out AutoCamp in California. AutoCamp takes the iconic Airstream trailers and makes them modern. They take ‘glamping’ to the next level with pillowtop mattresses, flat-screen TVs, Malin+Goetz bath amenities, and spa bathrobes. Want to set up camp next to the beach? Or do you prefer to be surrounded by redwoods? No worries because AutoCamp has locations in Santa Barbara and along the Russian River in Northern California.
Heading to Oregon? Then you’ll want to check out The Vintages Trailer Resort which has more than 30 restored vintage trailers. They’ve got all the classics like the 1947 Spartan Manor to the 1965 Boles Aero. Each is stocked with luxurious towels, comfy beds, L’Occitane bath products, and gourmet coffee. Take a glass of wine out to your own private patio and enjoy the scenery of Oregon’s Willamette Valley wine region.
Do you need to disconnect from technology? Take a break from the hustle and bustle of modern living and head to the Eastern Sierra region of California to Paradise Shores Camp. This camp is perfect for nature lovers who are just itching to explore nearby lakes and mountains. There are seven rental trailers you can book; each one includes a kitchen, pull-out sofa, and a queen-size bed. Take it easy next to the campfire and look up at the stars at this cell phone-free living to just get away from it all.
This location is perfect for nostalgia lovers. Take a trip back in time at the Shooting Star RV Resort in Utah. In what used to be a 1960s drive-in movie theater is now home to either refurbished Airstream trailers. Each trailer is uniquely decorated to resemble a dressing room of a movie star paying homage to the old ’60s drive-in theater. Shooting Star RV Resort is just short of an hour drive from gorgeous parks like the Bryce Canyon National Park and Kodachrome Basin State Park.
