My Flashback: 1986

Looking at my pic library. Found some from our true boondocking days, 1977 to 1990!
Why we dont boondock anymore!
The original Camp Daven. 1/4 mile down a logging road to the middle of our 40 acres. All equipment, supplies, water etc had to be hauled in on a 3x3 foot push cart. Water from the neighboring farm. Cooking mostly on the fire, but coffee and pizza in the apartment size propane stove. Pit toilet.
Housing: a 1959 Winnebago 16-ft camper, suitable for 4; kids in the cab-over.
A 5-hour drive!
Trout stream 1/4 mile.
Lake Superior, 2 miles.
Pub, 3-miles.
Most weekends and a 3-week vacation every August, ending Labor day.
Absolute peace and freedom!

No, Di tryed to set me up with a great camp but they wouldn't do financing for a week stay then we found Campers Inn which is only $270/week and just across the street like Panama City RV was. Figured we would splurge the savings on eating out!

Sitting at a WM right now. A 2 hour delay due to a fatal accident plus high wind and rain has us a little behind. Thinking of parking for the night, don't like driving after dark anymore!

Thanks Nissa!
It was what we could afford, and grand formative-years for our kids. They learned a lot about improvising and adapting.
(Us too)😉

We'll be safe bud. I'm with you cause I don't like to drive at night either.

This is a shock to the Clovis point theory! Gotta see it.
