Camping Memories

Yesterday Tohono Chul Gardens had a car show celebrating Route 66 and the cars that traversed the road.

That is where I found this well restored combo -- a 1956 Airstream and a 1959 Cadillac four door hardtop.

That combo would certainly be camping in style.

That wasn't my style. When that car and trailer were new, my bank account allowed for borrowed tents -- and eventually I owned one. The tent was heavy canvas. Usually, there was a hint of mildew and after a rain there was a definite mildew odor.

That was the downside of tent camping. The upside was being outside exploring -- or fishing. The end of the day was sitting around a smoky fire making hot dogs, That was followed by brown/burnt marshmallows before retiring for the night under a starlit sky.

Those are good memories!
