Very Cool ....

After WW1 and WW2, this country was mobile.

Tradesmen and families took to the road following
seasonal work or plying their trade across the country.

While not glamorous, it certainly was adventurous !


Thanks for the images ..... :-)

Erich, thanks for posting. I like them all, however I enjoyed photos 1, 3 (which I think are the same vehicle) & 11 (that trailer sure would look good chasing Sambuca down the road!) the best.

Happy motoring, Warren

Sambuca

Re: "Royal Chief TCT" flag. TCT is for Tin Can Tourist for those who may not know.

Erich. That is Henry Ford in the first picture. Note the set up and staff, complete with a cook.

My grandfather camping at Lake Arrowhead in San Bernardino mountains, California during the 1920's. I have that tent.

Norm, cool tent. Looks like they knew how to have a great time.

Warren, I wish I had a bunch more shots of that camp trailer. Its pretty swanky

In looking at these photos, one must also think about the roads that folks used to get there if there was a road, streams that had no bridges and were forded (even the big Buick in one of the photos had to "ford" streams :-)), the fact that if you had car trouble you were pretty much on your own and if you forgot something it was just too bad.

Neat bunch of photos. Thanks!!

I LOVE camping. Unfortunately, the wife hates to sleep outdoors.

William; Your wife has great insight into civil life. I totally agree with her.

Campers... people who work all week so they can pretend they're homeless on the weekends. :-)

Wow Erich, an original fifth wheel camper!

Happy motoring, Warren

My idea of "vintage camping" is staying in an old, un-remodeled Motel 6!!


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Gary H. White - Sheridan, MI on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 10:04 am:

Tim, With original mattresses? Ugh. Creepy.

I had to comment on the "original mattress?" comment.

On day in 1995 I woke up and my back was hurting, mind you I was just assigned to Ft. Huachuca from my year in Korea. The mattress was to say the least a little bumpy. I pulled of the sheet (as there are no fitted sheets in the army)and looked at the date of MFG. I thought that a mattress from April 1918 was just about due to be replaced. So I went to supply and asked for a new one. I got a 1948 one then!

Some campers at the 2008 birthday party for Henry Ford.

Sorry, the party was the 100th for model T, not Henry himself

I have never worn a tie while camping. Guess I'm just not civilized:-)

I hope to get out in my Schilling tent yet this summer.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Erich Bruckner, Vancouver, WA on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 07:51 pm:

Lance, is that an original accessory? Does it clamp onto the running board? Any shots of it stowed or unfolding it? Very cool.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Warren Henderson on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 08:03 pm:

Mike, Yes very uncivilized.

Happy motoring, Warren

Erich, this all I have. Shows it rolled up in it's own cover. It came complete except for the tent. I designed it and a friend sewed up the canvas. The mattress is pretty comfortable, but it isn't real weather or mosquito proof!


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Erich Bruckner, Vancouver, WA on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 09:16 pm:

Wow, very compact. Nice job on the tent too. Would love to see details of the running board clamp parts if possible.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Lance Sorenson, North Carolina on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 09:26 pm:

I had to drill holes through the running board to hold the frame...as it was designed. This picture show me working out some plans for the tent. There should be springs pulling the wood frame out away from the car to make it self supporting with canvas on. It wasn't really designed for a coupe.

Hey Lance,
kudos on that wonderfully patinated Coupe. It's lovely!

Thanks Lance, very cool.
