Camping 30s Style

Filed under: Camping,Tents — Laura Moncur @ 10:08 am

I love this photo of a camper and tent from the 1930s.

I just realized that we are a mere sixteen years away from 2030 and only six slim years from the 2020s. It seems crazy to me because the phrase The Twenties refers to the 1920s in my mind, but suddenly, we are on the cusp of a different Twenties.

And as strange as that sounds, humans have been living in tents for THOUSANDS of years. Sure the animal hides were replaced by canvas and then replaced by lightweight nylon, but the basic shelter of the tent has been around for longer than the memory of man. It’s awe inspiring to me and it answers that question I keep asking, “Why does it feel so good to go camping?” Because it is hardwired into my cavewoman brain.

  1. Hey there, Laura. I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and it’s very inspiring. So much that I’m interested in getting a camper trailer for my own prius. I thought towing was completely out of the question until I found your blog, but I’d like to ask you what kind of rig you’re pulling with your prius? Mostly how much it weighs or what’s the max you would recommend with an 07 prius. Have you had any issues with your car from towing your set up? I’m thinking of getting a oil/trans temperature gauge to make sure nothings getting too hot in the hood. Thanks!
