Thanks for the "Camping Photo"...I looked at and it reminded me of a Story my Dad would tell....Right away I noticed the tent poles strapped on the side of the Car...Seem a friend of his was taking his son on their vary first Camping Trip...They came by our house at 10:00 pm in the dark to borrow our Heavy Canvas umbrella tent...We helped them load the tent and other stuff up and off they Drove to Barton Flats in the San Bernardino Mtns..In the morning Dad went out for the paper...There laying on the lawn were the poles for the TENT...
Funny,,the things you remember....
It has always fascinated me about how inventive
people can be when they want to do something that others would think undoable. This and other posts her shows that our ancestors were on the ball and took action. Like those individuals on this forum with how to do advice. I really appreciate the photos.
That looks like a standard left hand drive car. They must have climbed over the sides of the car to get in!
Dyke's Automotive Manual mentioned in another recent post (mine's late teens) has a great chapter on camping. Building equipment, what to take and recipies for food. I always remembered the statement "Never buy sliced Bacon. It's much better cut thicker from a slab than sliced thin". Never got the chance to try it that way and at this stage of my life I probably never will!
