Calling all greenhorns: Does cubicle life have you feeling trapped? Perhaps you’d prefer a home where the buffalo roam; where the deer and the antelope play. Or maybe you just need some time under the stars to recover from all that Labor Day weekend drinking. Fair enough.
Yosemite Pines RV Resort in Groveland, California, is bringing a taste of the frontier to the 21st Century with some seriously tricked out Conestoga Wagons ready to host you and your friends in the great outdoors. Think of it as a chance to live out all of your Oregon Trail dreams, minus the cholera, dysentery, and witty epitaphs.

The accommodations are a little better, too. Each wagon sleeps four to six guests, offering a king-size bed and one or two twin-size bunks. There’s a fridge, a microwave, a coffee pot, bed linens, and heating/air conditioning that will make you glad you live in this era, and not that one.
It seems the only modern amenity that the wagons don’t offer is the ability to book online, so if you’re feeling the call to Go West, you’ll have to pick up the phone and dial 209-962-7690 to reserve your spot. And don’t delay; during the month of September, there’s a buy-one-night, get-one-night-free deal if you tell them the code WAGONINTRO. Happy trails!
