Grandpa, Dad, & "the Kid", roughing it in the great outdoors.

Do you suppose they caught heck for the "auto" and NOT having hiked in? "REAL MEN would have hiked in and not had to use an auto to get there." I can just hear that being said in the bar when they were telling the latest camping stories.

I am amazed how quickly they taught that grizzly bear to take their picture. This of course was their last photo before the grizzly had dinner.

They tied the tent to the "B" pillar of the T. If they rode to camp on horses the tent would moved around a little more.

Hey, don't sneer at cow chips! We tried them for a camp fire out in Nevada once and they burned quite well. Smelled like grass though........

That was one very low tent, must have been difficult to get ready for bed, or to get up on the middle of the night to take care of important business

In those days, people used to cross the country with a tent and camping supplies on the running board. Wherever the were at sundown is where they camped. I think the motels came later. My grandfather and uncle camped all the way from Los Angeles to Plymouth Rock and up into Ontario and back. That was done in 1926 in a Model T.
