Miranda Lambert and her husband Brendan McLoughlin are making the most of the quarantine life by traveling the country while social distancing in their brand new 2020 Airstream Globetrotter.
The couple recently logged 1,000 miles in six days with their Airstream, which is nicknamed “The Sherriff,” and Lambert shared a few highlights of their trip with fans via Instagram.
“Hey, y’all. Just an update on glamp life,” she began. “We spent the last week taking #TheSherrif on his first road trip. We camped our way to see our NY family. 6 days: 4 states: 1000 miles.”
The “Bluebird” singer revealed that the couple’s trip began in Nashville and that they made stops in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Virginia, Pennsylvania and finally, New York.
“It was a nice change of pace,” she said. “Something about the highway is calming, and at the same time keeps you completely focused. I like to drive a lot because most of my adult life I’ve been driven around on a tour bus to play music.”
Though she admitted that she misses touring, Lambert’s trip recap sure made it seem like she and Brenden had a blast on their trip.
“B drives too and is the best navigator. We can set up camp in under 10 minutes once we pull in. Took a few times but we worked out the kinks,” she shared. “One of my favorite things on this trip was making dads classic recipe ‘campfire casserole’ in our Dutch Oven on the camp fire coals! Of course we had to face time Rick Lambert to make sure we knew the tricks of the trade, but Brendan has cooking anything in this cast iron down to an art now.”
The superstar closed her post teasing, “stay tuned for more,” hinting that their camping adventures aren’t over yet.
