Sister’s on the fly started in 1999. It has grown to a sisterhood of more than 9,000 members. The mission of Sister’s on the fly: “offering empowerment and sisterhood through exceptional outdoor adventures.” As a group of women, they challenge themselves in all that they set their minds to. All women who want to share in the adventures of the sisterhood are welcome.

The sisterhood travels to various destinations near and far in the United States and even abroad. The organization is much more than a traveling camping group they also have fund raisers for breast cancer recovery with the ” Casting for recovery,” “quilts on the fly,” and trailer tours where 100% of the money raised goes to the cause. The sisters have another aspect that makes them unique, most of the members travel in vintage camping trailers that they have restored themselves and have decorated or “glamped” to reflect their personalities. although having a vintage trailer is not a requirement. Sisters stay in tents, new trailers, rent cabins, vans and even sleep under the stars. Restoring the vintage camping trailers is what drew the McFarlands to the group initially.

The restoration of Malorie’s 1967 Shasta Compact which she named “The Lovely Lady” and Pat’s 1973 Shasta Compact named “Madame Blu” was a project that strengthened the mother daughter bond. The process of finding the trailers, doing the work, and designing the theme for each one was a form of therapy.

“We got to put into them so much creativity. It was such a joyful process, and to see them done and see how much people like to see them at the campgrounds and going down the road makes me happy,” said Malorie McFarland.
