Hey everybody. Jen Hatmaker here. Your host of the For The Love Podcast. Welcome to the show you guys. I am so enjoying, creating this little baby series for you on MeCamp. If you were anywhere near my social feeds for the last month, you know about MeCamp…. You’re like, “I wish I didn’t know about me camp. I wish there was a way I could not have ingested this much information about Me Camp.”
But, you know, I traveled solo for essentially a month. Well, not entirely solo stay tuned for this episode. I did a lot of solo travel while Remy was at camp. So Remy went to camp in Maine for almost a month. And I started this last year, took my own self to camp and I called it MeCamp while she was gone. But turns out MeCamp was my favorite and best thing I’ve ever done. So this year it was an intentional repeat as she went back to camp happy as a clam. And I knew that I had another four weeks to play around with where I was sort of off the clock, if you will, and had a chance to have an experience of primary solo travel.
Because I didn’t need to be near her this year. I was up for anywhere new. And so I had a combination trip of the first week in Aspen, Colorado, which was a, I had a tiny little shred of work to do while I was there. And by tiny, I literally mean tiny, like one hour. And I spent an entire week there , you know, at the mountains are very precious and special place to me.
So I spent a week in Aspen and then I spent three weeks in Grand Marais, Minnesota. Up north, if you will. I mean about 40 miles from the Canada border — that up north. A little, tiny, sweet town, right on lake superior. And it was magic. But for this one, for this little episode, I wanna pick up where I left off last week, which was Tyler Merritt in Grand Marais with me. So if you missed a recap of essentially “Boyfriend Camp,” that’s last week’s episode. And then I was on my own for another couple of days, which solo travel has become precious to me for a million reasons, the quiet in my brain, the newfound confidence that I am perfectly good company all by myself and that I am not just capable, obviously, but willing to travel alone. And it’s not a drag, it’s the best. And there’s this version of me that exists at Me Camp that I just love. I love her. It’s not the way I always operate, but it’s this gear that I hit where I just say, while I’m here, this special sort of experience, these are sort of the best practices I am going to employ.
