The only type of vacations we took when we were growing up were camping trips. We did go stay with relatives in southern California sometimes - and the occasional lucky trip to Disneyland for less than one full day - which, of course was fabulous. But mostly, camping was it. And we loved it.
Maybe you went camping, too? I guess some people just slept in their cars. This old Nash looks like it could have been rather accomodating!
Or, maybe you had a cab-over camper, or you pulled a trailer?
Or a pop-up tent/camper in a trailer or a truck-bed? We had a tent, but also Daddy created some pretty neat home-made things. We had a built-in plywood contraption that fit into the back of our Corvair Greenbrier van that mad a flat surface so we girls could sleep in there. It had hinges and compartments and flip-ups and was pretty ingenious! Wish I had a picture of it. And, naturally, we had the Coleman stove and lantern, and all of that. And we had a neat old cupboard thing that folded all up and held a lot of "pantry" stuff.
This old tent served us well for many years. Tina and I took some trips with it. It finally wore out. One of our favorite areas to go was also sort of the old family stomping grounds- Gualala, Anchor Bay, etc.
I'm afraid I'm not much of a tent camper anymore. But I'd love to go if we had a comfortable camper or trailer!
