Rachel said:
“I pre-ordered your glamping book because a few months ago I purchased a 1968 Frolic camper that we are now in the process of restoring. Once it is done, I can’t wait to take her out and go glamping. I have already made blankets and pillows; the curtains and towels are on the list to be done. The whole idea of a comfortable getaway is very thrilling.”

Just a word about WHY we didn’t draw the name while on the road: “Stay tuned right here for my drawing that will take place in a glampground, somewhere between here and the Black Hills of South Dakota—streaming live from my Airstream.” I took a printer for my laptop with me on our odyssey. For the first part of our trip, everything worked like a charm, until that one big bump in the road near Dillon, Montana, that sent my printer flying from its designated place and onto the floor of my Airstream, plastic parts everywhere. Amazingly, once I got it home and put it back together, the thing fired up and still works. If you’re looking for a beyond-sturdy printer, I paid $60 for a Brother HL2240. What a great traveling companion it proved to be.

“One busy, hectic afternoon in my house, I sat down to take a quick peek at Glamping. Over two hours later, I was still reading, blissfully lost in MaryJane’s beautiful world. I’m dying over this book. I absolutely, positively LOVE IT!”

THE New York Times best-selling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks

Glamping in my ’68 Airstream. Renovation details in book!

  1. Beth Wyman says:

    Because I so love all your other books.
    I have all of them and your Magizines.
    Because I am at the hospital ER at 3:am with my
    Mother-in-law whose just had several mini
    Strokes. And she loves to camp and I want
    To fix up an old prowler camper she used to use
    And take her camping before things get bad. And we have
    Something to look forward to.

  2. Julie Kram says:

    I went to Amazon and pre-ordered your book because of the inspiration I know it’ll give me and my daughters and granddaughter. I’m using the “Outpost”, “Stitching”, and “Life” books constantly for ideas and thoughts and advice. I know the new text will provide the same for our farmgirl lifestyles!!! I can’t wait!!!!

  3. Julie Kram says:

    P.S. The 1964 Layton is raring to go!!!

  4. Linda Jenkins says:

    I went to to preorder because just the knowledge that I had preordered my very own copy of the book gave me such a huge sense of self & relaxation, esp. after 4 months of successful fire academy training. Glamping was just what this 44 yr old mom needed after keeping up with a bunch of twenty-something yr old guys. The many sides of me will be so excited to read the book especially after my own 1st Glamping adventure next month:)

  5. Winnie Nielsen says:

    I went to and pre-ordered your book because I have the others and I just love to read them and learn so many new things. Although I do not own a trailer and I am afraid my Prius is too small to pull one, I always enjoy the stories of all the adventures from the Farmgirls on the MJF Connection! No doubt this new book will be so fun to read that I won’t be able to put it down! Plus there will be new ideas to try and beautiful photos to inspire! I am excited for August to arrive.

    My biggest dream is not to own a trailer but rather to visit Mary Jane’s Farm and stay at the B&B!! I bought my first pair of cowgirl boots this spring in anticipation of one day going!!!

  6. Janet Doran says:

    I ordered mine quite awhile ago, just as soon as I found out I could preorder it early. I am so excited to get it.
    I would so much love to get pampered for a couple of days. The only time I have really been papmered is when in the hospital having surgeries. Visiting Mary Jane’s Farm is on my bucket list. I live every day with Mary Jane on my mind and all the wonderful things that she does and all the wonderful people involved with the organization. I will cherish all for the rest of my life!!!!

  7. Raynita says:

    I just pre-ordered your glamping book because your books and magazines make me smile the minute I touch one. They allow me to dream….dream about things I haven’t even done before like camping which never appealed to me until you showed me what glamping was. I love to have your books and magazines on hand for girl get-togethers whether it’s just two of us or a table full. Best of all, my daughters, age 9 and 27, dream together as we look through your books and magazines. I thank you for that:)

  8. Thayes Hower says:

    I pre-ordered your book because my best friend, who just happens to live in Idaho, loves camping and I am a bed and breakfast innkeeper who lives in CA. Our two interests make us the perfect Glamping duo but we haven’t had a chance in a long time to camp together. I’m sure this book will give us the impetus to get Glamping!

  9. DWanna W says:

    I pre-ordered your book because I love all your other books and glamping is sooo much better than camping. I’m looking for all kinds of tips for glamping in a cute vintage trailer (that I’m still looking for). 🙂

  10. Kelly T. told me all about you. I am so excited for the book!

  11. April says:

    I have been so excited about the prospect of finding my own camper to glam up. So while I’m still in dream mode, I thought your book would be excellent in helping me dream even more! I’m excited about glamping in a tent for the first time in September!

    • MaryJane says:

      Your upcoming glamping gathering sounds like the place to be. Should we send cut-outs if we can’t make it:)?

  12. Teree says:

    Without any hesitation I preordered your book at because I LoVe
    EVerYthinG MaRy JaNe!! You put a smile on my face EveRyDaY…I read your magazines, your books, your blog’s and newsletter’s and I follow you on Pinterest and like you on Facebook! I’m proud to be a FaRm GiRL at HeArT #2548! I collect your recipes and cook and clean like you…heck…I even dress like You!! Seriously can’t wait for this book because I know I won’t be disappointed! I look forward to the day I can road trip or glamp up your way to meet ya or at least visit your store. Thanks for inspiring my world. xoxo

  13. Jen in TX says:

    I pre-ordered it back on May 23rd after reading about it on the Farmgirl Connection. I have all your other books, so I wanted my collection to be complete. 🙂

  14. Linda Boyd says:

    I ordered your book because I’ve got all your books and would love to come with my hubby and stay at your B&B!!!! Oh please pick me! I love you!

  15. Sara Laughlin says:

    I ordered the book because years ago I stumbled upon an article about your Glamper and have been dreaming ever since of having my own Glamper. I’ve been collecting dishes for it for a while. I know some one in my neighborhood who has already became a Glamper and I am looking forward to the day when I finally am able to join the ranks. This will give me further inspiration and courage to take the step of being good to myself sometimes, as well as inspiration of what I want to do with my rig once I find it.
    You are a woman after my own heart. From the desert city farmgirl at heart.

  16. Marlene Gaige says:

    Because you and Meg are the most gracious people we have ever met!

  17. Rise Tiller says:

    I love everything Mary Jane – every book and magazine gives me a renewed feeling for living life. Thanks for all you do.

  18. Wanda Sue Aldridge says:

    I pre-ordered my book, and can hardly wait to read it. We have an older camper that needs some help, and I am sure there will be plenty of ideas. I have been glamping a few years and didn’t know there was a name for it. My husband always laughs at the flowers I always put on the table. Thank you for the inspiration!

  19. Vivian Varela says:

    Actually, I won’t buy books from Amazon; but I have pre-ordered a copy through my local independent bookstore, Mendocino Book Company! I love camping and am seriously considering buying a small tent trailer to get a little more comfort than my current 2-person tent 🙂 Your book will inspire me to create a wonderful camping experience for me and my dog!

  20. Laurie Dimino says:

    I pre-ordered two copies of your latest book…one for me and one to give as a gift to my sister. I am so excited! I have all 3 of your other books, which I just love, and of course I subscribe to your magazine, raising jane and all things Mary Jane. I just can’t get enough of you and all that you represent. Since discovering Mary Janes Farm about 3 years ago, my life has been truly changed for the better. The “sisterhood” is a wonderful community of like minded gals, and I have made so many friends through swaps, barters, and RAOK’s that I will be forever thankful!
    Staying at your B&B is on my bucket list of things to do before I turn 50 in a few years, so needless to say I would just LOVE to win this amazing prize!
    Thank you for the opportunity…I have my fingers and toes crossed twice over~


  21. Denise says:

    I pre-ordered your book back in May. We sold our large camper and I have been talking about and hoping to find get little camper and glamp it up. I thought your book might give me some inspiration and help me to learn more about this glamping. This giveaway is very generous and I am so excited to have an opportunity to visit.

  22. Daizy Bailes says:

    Why? Coz Mz MaryJane is MY SISTA FROM ANOTHER MOTHER!!!! I live all things MaryJane – you are such an inspiration to me and my world…..I smell the Idaho soil when I’m with you – even thru your words !!! More MAryJane …. Any time!!

  23. Hi MaryJane! I pre-ordered your book because of the respite I know it will provide from my everyday, chaotic job. I know I’ll be inspired! Can’t wait!

    Ali ~ Farmgirl 12

  24. Sara Thompson says:

    Because I can’t wait to try some glamping myself.

  25. Vickie Hill says:

    Can’t wait to read the new book! Mary Jane, take me away!

  26. Beth Johnson says:

    I was raised an Alaskan farmgirl, and although I am no longer living on the farm, in my heart I will ALWAYS be a farmgirl, through & through. From the expanding hillside garden in my back yard, to the clothesline that I insist on using all year round even if there is just a mere hint of sunshine — I love simplicity, and your books and magazines encourage that. I love them all, and look forward to reading this one!

  27. JoAnn Groth says:

    preorder the book when I first heard about it. I have slept on the trampoline on the farm and in upstairs of the bunkhouse/kitchen (at the first Farmgirl campout) I think now is the time to sleep in the wall tent: ) JoAnn

  28. CJ says:

    I went to Amazon and pre-ordered a long time . . . holding my breath! I LOVE YOUR BOOKS and wanted to NOT miss the opportunity to pre-order your book. In fact, I ordered two, one for my “Birdie” as well.
    As you know, we’re “hooked” on glamping! We are the “4871 Glamping Farmgirls”!!!
    We’re all about the adventure, the experience, the fun, the frills, lace and “fluff”! We are getting ready for another adventure . . . ROCK ON!!!
    Thanks Mary Jane for the opportunity!

  29. Mary Sue W says:

    I’m pre-ordering your book because I love you Outpost book and your Ideabook. Plus I much prefer “Glamping” of my boys idea of camping. Thanks for inspiring me.

  30. Zoe Siperly says:

    I’ve had mine on order for months and can’t wait to add it to the library in my glamper!! I’m hoping [praying] that I am able to come visit you in person!!
    Thanks for sharing another bit of your life with us!! Blessings Zoe #2262

  31. Elizabeth Mason says:

    I have preordered your glamping book from Amazon because I am an Amazon addict, and am also addicted to curling up with your magazine. It’s just like snuggling down with my favorite blankie! The idea of glamping has been with me since you featured it in your magazine, and I so look forward to discovering all the motivation and information in this book!!

  32. Diann says:

    I have the behemouth camper and a vision for the “revision” and a name……Sassy Sister!

  33. Kim Stotts says:

    I actually went to and ordered the book before I even heard about the giveaway! I found Mary Janes Farm and all things farmgirl while I was out in California trying to settle my parents’ estate, sell their house, and tie up all the loose ends. I was so missing my home in Colorado but discovered “Mary Jane” at Barnes & Noble in Glendora, CA. All of a sudden, I was transported back to my home in nature – and being a Sister On The Fly (#1999) – I really appreciated seeing Mary Jane’s teardrop trailer! Can’t wait for the book!!!

  34. Sue Baadsgaard says:

    I love the idea of glamping – all the joys of camping combined with the creature comforts that we have come to expect.

  35. Mary Alice Baer says:

    I pre-ordered your book before you posted the Glamping Contest…but here is my reason for ordering it…I use to camp all the time, was made fun of because I liked to “dress up” the camp site…then after twenty years of marriage…I was divorced…no more camping…Now, my ex-sister in law is basically going through the same thing and we’ve been trying to figure out a “girls weekend” to just CHILL…Glamping would be wonderful and refreshing…and even if I don’t get chosen for the pampering…I’ll still enjoy your book as I have your other books, your magazine and the website. Thanks and Many Blessings. Mary Alice

  36. Sue M. says:

    I have all your other books and just pre-orered the book as a gift for a girl friend who has a vintage trailer…she’s going to love it! Would love to win your generous giveaway to your B & B…thanks for the opportunity.

  37. Maryann Fox says:

    I couldn’t wait to order the Glamping book from Amazon! My husband and I are so interested in buying an older 60’s trailer and fixing it up. We knew there would be great ideas in your new book. We have already starting looking and can’t wait to start collecting all the goodies to put inside. Waiting till Sept. 1 will be the hard part! I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your magazine and getting to know so many wonderful farmgirls. It has been a joy! Each issue has new things for me to think about and things to try. I have purchased many subscriptions for friends and relatives because I know they will love it too. You put your heart into it and it shows. Needless to say…I am so looking forward to the Glamping book coming in the mail.

  38. hobbit says:

    I’ve been following Mary Jane like a little lost puppy for quite some time.Friends often ask if I brought my farming bible with me,as I am rarely out and about “sans” Mary Jane info. The trip would be a great surprise for my daughter whose husband recently decided to let go of the wheel(his wife) and see where life takes him. Really? She has thrown herself into life and added,”seeing and discovering one new state every year.” She just came back from Nashville Tenn. and has been bubbling over about the things she saw and heard and so much more. I think Idaho would be a wonderful place for her to visit……….Don’t you?

  39. Sophia says:

    I use the Life books, and Outpost, quite a bit. I have a 68 Ritz Craft that I am remodeling: put in new joists and subfloor, new walls, nice twin bed box spring, new walls coming up. new electrical roughed in. When I get done my home on the range, complete with bandana material curtains, etc., will be rolling!!! With Oscar (my long haired weiner dog and myself on the road.

  40. Lora says:

    I have loved vintage trailers for 30 years! Had one years back that my EX-husband made me sell. Have been looking for another since before I heard about glamping. I have all your books and just get such a good feeling from them. I am from the Oregon Desert, and have had 2 neices go to college in Moscow, now a nephew will be there. Have wanted to visit Mary Jane’s farm since I heard about it.

  41. Janine Newby says:

    Because I love all of your other books and love the idea of traveling the roads with a little, tiny teardrop trailer. (there is one down the street that needs revamping that I have my eye on!)

    Can’t wait for the book!

  42. Jenny Pipes says:

    I am so excited for this new book and could hardly wait to pre-order. I LOVE camping and as I get older I sure appreciate the idea of “glamping”!!! I have a dream of a little teardrop trailer someday and camping with my daughters and girlfriends..what fun!
    You are such an inspiration and I have loved each book and magazine so much!
    My dream is to someday visit your farm and stay at your b and b.

  43. Idamarie Settlemyer says:

    after seeing the magazine I couldn’t stand it! have to have the book! the little ’60’s tear drop in my back yard is destined for a make over!

  44. junebug says:

    I went to Amazon and pre-ordered Glamping for I can’t wait to read it and Amazon make it so easy! I have all of Mary Jane’s books so I NEED this one!

  45. Christine says:

    Are you kidding?!?! There’s not a Mary Jane book or magazine I haven’t read yet!!!!

  46. laurie keenan says:

    Enjoy your magazine…raised a farm girl and am living the dream on 4 acres of my own, with the love of my life. After retirement plan to get a few chickens and such and re-learn the art of stocking-up like I did in my 20’s and 30’s. How did I ever have the time when my three kids were small??? Keep the great info coming my way.

  47. Deborah Robinson says:

    I per-ordered two copies; one for me & one for my best friend, Beth. Both of us fantasize about hitting the road and what better why than Glamping! Love your books & magazine!

  48. Susan peters says:

    Because I love the photos and your country girl attitude!!!

  49. Jamie Zorn says:

    I go camping for a week with my son’s boy scout troop every summer. I am one of the few parents willing and/or able to take a week off from work to go with them. Every year I happily sleep in my tent. This year one of the Assistant Scoutmasters brings his camper trailer and invites the other two men to sleep in it. I gave them alot of grief about the sleeping arrangements.

    When I got home, what is in my mailbox? My beloved issue of MaryJanes Farm! And what is on the cover? Glamping! At that moment I knew what I would be doing during the next year. Searching for, purchasing and glamming my own little camping oasis! Look out Camp Raymond, I will arriving in style next year.

    I await my handbook ~ I’m so glad I get one-day shipping from Amazon.

  50. Kathy Beachy says:

    Because I love the magazines, because I love the aprons & cowgirl boots, because I am a Mary Janes Farmgirl!!
