My dad gave me this 1961 camping book. One chapter is titles "Modern Camping for the Modern Woman." It shows how to make a wardrobe for camping! Who needs a wardrobe for camping, lol?

I love seeing all those old outdoors pictures.

I have an old fishing magazine that shows all the women in dress's and all the men with tie's and hats.....Fishing!

A few old pages from a camping magazine I have.



Dad would always make all this gadget stuff when camping.

I actually remember seeing the hanging tree Cooler #9 while camping as a kid.

Once he used the shelves from an old Refrigerator for a grill. Only to find out that Refrigerator shelves at that time were soldered together.

As soon as it got hot the solder melted and all that was left was a bunch of loose metal rods.

He discovered this before we put food on it.

Happy Trails
