I saw this Swallowtail Butterfly fluttering around the yard yesterday and got a couple of decent pictures of it. Swallowtails are hard to get a picture of because they don't stay in one place for more than a few seconds, so a good picture is mostly luck.
That's very true, Barney; I tend to gloss over or not even mention things that could be a problem with a truck camper for a lot of people just because they're not a problem for me...AT THE MOMENT. And getting into a truck campers main bed is a good example.
It takes some agility to get into the upper bed; some folks might even consider it an exercise in gymnastics. And I can see in the future it might be a problem for me, but I figure that I can always sleep on the lower bed should the need arise, which doesn't require any more ability than getting into a regular bed.
A more serious and possibly insurmountable problem is the steps to get into the truck camper. It does take three serious steps to get from the ground into the camper, not baby steps, but serious steps. Oddly enough, the Lance is no worse than the Arctic Fox in that respect; both are waist-high to get from the ground into either camper. So I would imagine anybody with leg or hip problems would have difficulty getting into any truck camper I've ever seen.
So, all in all, I don't worry about the sleeping problem because there is a bed on the main level of the Lance, but getting in and out of the camper is a problem, and to one degree or another, affects a lot of RVs. But I'm depending on by the time I reach a level of geezerocity that precludes me from getting into an RV, I will either switch to a tent where there are no steps or end up at a VA Hospital with an ingrown toenail and die 24 hours later of a botched heart transplant.
