CAMPING ON REDNESDAY
I found this great book at a yard sale last year. It's dated 1961. Lots of fun photos and text, too! Come on, let's go camping this Rednesday!
Funny how, in this cover pic, the dad is in 'camouflage' and blends in with the rocks. No red, no center stage!
"Women take advantage of all the new conveniences that make camping easy." Yeah, right! Where's the air conditioning and refrigerator, toilet and t.v.? LOL!
Remember how heavy these metal coolers were (are)? Get a load of the bathing suits!
What I wouldn't give for one of these thermos/snack units! (They're red plaid) I've seen them on eBay for mega bucks. It would be so awesome to find one at a yard sale! *sigh*
Yes, we love going camping in a freshly starched and ironed dress! I hope she didn't forget her stockings! And, what's with those burgers - is the Jolly Green Giant coming for lunch?
Well, while you've got the station wagon here, you might as well sleep in it - or on it!
Oh, look, another dress! Do you see the piece of log on the picnic bench used for a booster seat? More cool cars, too!
Yup, I've got my cool red tent, cool two-toned sedan, and the awesomest vintage suitcase! Ah, this is the life!
