    Great job Dad!
     
  9. It's ironic how Millers desire for a vintage camper has also infected his dad,you & your son are going to have a great time together and make memory's that he will share with his children years from now.

    I wanted the camping experience with my youngest granddaughter and searched high and low for the same model my grandparents had when they took me camping,a early Shasta was found and we have taken Veda on several camping trips.

    I have enjoyed teaching her and watching as she has become more confident with new found skills HRP

    when i was younger i didn't consider it a campsite if a car could drive to it, let alone any type of camper. hiking in, with just a sleeping bag, and a fishing pole. now, i consider watching tv in the sun room, camping......

    See...I prefer 'rustic' campgrounds. The type of place from which most ppl stay away. I don't need lectric or running water. I do take my tent, too but that's for colder weather.

    Yeah... I kind of hate the outdoors.

  15. Camping: Is the art of getting closer to nature while getting farther away from the nearest cold beverage, hot shower and flush toilet.

    Screw that-

    I served my time sleeping in tents,rain and mud I am a lot older and a little wiser,our little Shasta serves us well. HRP

    You will soon find the term "Glamper" as irritating as "Rat Rod".

    reminds me of a Jeff Goldblum quote, in one of my favorite movies "the big chill";
    zipping up, as he turns toward the camera.
    "that is what i love about the outdoors.......it's one big toilet"

    I think to prepare for your maiden voyage you should watch a few old movies about campers. Two good ones that come to mind are The Long Long Trailer with Lucy & Desi and Lost in America with Albert Brooks & Julie Hagerty.
