Just an idea here. How about a thread of tent camping pics. Show off your tent, camp kitchen, camp site, unique ideas to make tent camping more comfy for you and yours. Hey, even show off your pack mule rigged out ready to camp.

Here is my "pack mule" right now it's hitched up to my little red trailer which I will probably use for tent camping to haul the families bikes and the coolers.



I know that this forum is a bit slower than others so I was just wondering if we could get some activity by sharing some pics.

Thanks!

Here's our gear solution, no 55-mph Cali max speed and no flat tires!


Our typical setup, only one tent is in view. Optima 12V AGM Blue-Top powering 200W Kenwood/Polk stereo equipment, LED multicolor lighting and charging gear, lantern tripods, Kelty soft-sided Binto box chuckbox and other stuff...

I wished you hadn't gone and posted that picture... Now you'll have the "Wight Police" down on you. You should know by now you can't pull anything "Red" without a F350 or better.

BTW: Some of my best memories are when the kids were small and we camped just like that. Every trip was an adventure.

Great looking pics everyone! Let's keep me coming!

Skip, I like your small RV! Looks mighty cozy!

Thomas, I actually had a F350 that I used to pull this little trailer. It's so much easier to load a small trailer!

Tplife, I love your cargo box on your Prius! Nice looking set up!

Mockturtle, looks like y'all are having a blast!!!!

.... RV'ers, if you have something you would like to share on this ultimate pic thread that you think would be usefull to us tent campers, please do so!

Thanks!

Our first tent camping trip was made in our 1956 VW Bug. I took out the rear seat and cut a piece of 3/4 plywood to fill the space to make a floor. The two single burner coleman stoves went in the rear seat foot wells and then the plywood floor was put in to hold all the other gear, each item had a place or it didn't fit. When we arrived at the campground, the plywood came out and with pipe floor flanges screwed to the bottom, installed pipe legs to make a table. the two front bucket seats were removed and leaned against two trees for camping chairs. That was fun as I recall, but time has a way of dulling your memory but it got us camping, No pictures. Moved on to larger station wagons and travel trailers, class C motor home and now a Class A Motorhome, all methods were and are fun

Cape Lookout National Seashore - Two islands providing forty miles of pristine beach with no roads, no stores and no permanent inhabitants

Accessible only by boat - The Donza Lee is one of two private ferries that will take you and your vehicle over to Portsmouth Island


Camping is permitted almost anywhere on the ocean side of the dunes - We didn't have a neighbor in sight in either direction


Our Eureka backpacking tent and Pahaque screen room provided better accomodations than any ocean front condo
