Caption This Crazy Camper

You might know about my little fondness for campers. Vehicles with not just living space on board, but a sense of style that taps into the heart of your inner creature (or your inner Clark Griswold) who longs to retire early, go to happy places to do happy things. While cars can be an extension of your personality, campers become an extension, or realization, of your dreams.

But yikes. This one's left me speechless and amused and wondering. Sure, it's clearly someone's afternoon musings with Photoshop and a fleeting moment of inspiration. What is it that this camper says? What runs through your mind when you look at it? I think I need your help to sum it up, because all the fun shouldn't be just left up to me.

So do me a favor, do us all a favor, come up with your most entertaining caption for this wild camper, leave it in the comments below and whoever leaves the best one (as determined by, oh, me and my wife over a margarita or two) gets a prize. Hit us with your best shot. On Friday, I'll pick a winner who'll get a free copy of Lonely Planet's book Travel with Children. It's a neat book filled with some tips, ideas, and number of entertaining stories from families who've taken remarkable trips.

Being a step ahead is boring. Be a step above.
