Beautiful, peaceful, unlike what is now called camping in an air conditioned motor home with a generator running all night for the enjoyment of others.

That is a really nice car!
I just ordered a new canvas tent for our family Thanksgiving gathering. A man cave with a little stove.
But looking at our weather forecast, I suspect the men might want to den up in the warm house with a bigger stove.
And...I am glad I can cook dinner on an electric stove, not a campfire.

LE, I did not know canvas tents were still available, I see so many plastic ones along the streets. Might get one but my microwave might not work there.

Looks like another vehicle, motorcycle? pickup? Wheel and possibly a pickup cab behind tent on right?

Good eye, starboard-- that's a pickup truck behind the tent on the right. The bed is sticking out, with the cab barely visible to the right. Based on the wheels and the tailgate, I'm pretty sure it's a 1926 or 1927 Model T roadster pickup. I believe the car on the left is a Model A.

Kenn, I will give a plug to Montana Canvas, just because they were so good to work with. I talked to the actual owner and sewer, who put in windows and an extra door for me. Unlike the tent in the photo, it comes with the aluminum frame package.
I can remember my dad cutting poles for our canvas tent.
My hope is to give younger kids in the family, an experience of camping in a canvas tent, with no cell phone, microwave or plush mattress. And....no generator.
Then maybe, a photo like this one, will have more meaning,

Some years ago I took my nieces and nephew from New York City camping. I don't think they had ever seen a campfire. We cooked on a camp stove, but I think every kid needs to cook marshmallows over a real fire. And I say this as someone who still has a small scar from a childhood marshmallow accident.

(A sad aside) The comments from Buzz are over. He passed away Nov. 11th. The members of HRHS Class of '59 are less.

Oh darn it!! I wondered, since we hadn't heard from him. Especially the Alaska Fish Trap photo.
Thanks Bill for letting us know.

Arthur, I don't believe the sedan is a Model-A based on the wood spoke wheels.
It does look very similar to the "A" 3 window Town Sedan, but the wheels then were wire spoke.
