Old advice, Motor Camping circa 1921
"The call of the open road is a difficult matter clearly to define but the manner in which our gasoline caravans may be equipped to answer the call is a real and extremely definate problem. There is nothing intangible about this.
If possible, this problem should be completely solved weeks before the start of the trip. When the camper allows everything to slide along till the last day, he is likely to regret his lack of forethought. The need for articles overlooked, the bother of unnecessary things thrown in at the last minute, clumsy packing, unequeal distribution of weight; these and a dozen more petty annoyances cropping up continually will detract greatly from the pleasures of the trip. One goes camping to have fun, not be annoyed. This applies both to the periodical week-end camper and the party starting out upon a continous two or three month's tour. Some campers have mighty good fun in spite of slack methods. But the type of motor camping to which I refer is something more than this. It is camp life with as many of the comforts of home as are conveniently possible."
