Dianne,

I really dig your plaid cooler. I'm not into glamping myself but I'm drawn to the vintage camping/trailer gear. I have an original metal Coleman chest cooler. Probably around 30 or forty years old. On the look out for some vintage kitchen wear in good shape.

Smile Hanging Tarp

Hazel, I have hung tarps for years, by myself. The orange one is extremely large. I look at the trees, for quite a while to know where to attach. It has to be taught and slant to shed rain. Sometimes there are no trees, I can still hang one. I always carry ropes, adjustable poles, stakes, hammer, and bungy cords. But Tarp hanging is a different thread, maybe I'll start one if there is enough interest.

Cabin Fever -- Yep, understand what that is too. Started looking for something to do after Christmas and decide on the below
modification to our cargo carrier. Only thing vintage on it are the wheels - off of the wife's Radio Flyer-90 wagon. Which means that was a long-long-long time ago.
Can't wait for Green Eggs & Ham.

Repurpose, reuse, recycle LOVE IT!

I have my daughter's small Radio Flyer wagon in the garage. It's one of the little ones... she was a toddler at the time and is now in her early 20s. Hummmmmmm.

I got this old Asti box from a friend, and needed a place to store my nice wine glasses (that I use every time I camp). So I line it with felt, and 'hwalla', I don't have to wrap them in towels when I travel anymore.

I admit it.... <standing up> I am Pam and I am a GLAMPER

John, I truly love your wagon! Great job! How many times I have wished for wheels to carry stuff in (like 6 gal. of water,or wine) while camping. One of the places I go we eat or have wine, Pam, at each others sites.
Pam, your wine box is not only Glamper but sooo useful. Think I need a crate.

I too carry wine glasses on every trip, but mine are plastic. Of course, though, they match the Uhaul colors.

We like to drink cups of tea made with loose tea. Of course, our cups are Uhaul cups. I have both breakable ones and plastic ones. The breakable ones did not fare too well traveling until I began to pack them inside the nylon zipper containers for washing ladies undergarments inside insolated, zippered lunch containers. These cushion them well. No breaks since then.

Here is one of my favorite glamping themes, Fall Foliage. Most of the accessories I find at thrift stores or make from discount fabric. I made the spare tire cover from a second matching tablecloth. We like to use cafeteria trays while camping as they are easy to transport food and dishes from camper to table and back. I choose to use fanciful dishware while camping thereby making the whole experience fun, fun, fun!

Inside the trailer I've made curtain panels out of leaf-print remnants. Corduroy with a boot print makes great pillows and pennant. The plaid throw strategically snaps to make a robe and triples as a bedspread. I've added handy pockets of netting to the curtains providing a spot for reading glasses, flashlights and tissues at nighttime. The wall pockets are held to the rat fur with the hook side of Velcro. The baby crib bumper protects me from hitting the metal table hardware while sleeping and prevents the wall from getting grimy. Last, but not least, I always travel with a furry friend. In this case it is a black bear which zips open to reveal a fleece throw blanket.

I think the secret to successful glamping is to be sure (almost) everything is multi-functional as well as fun. It doesn't make sense to bog yourself down with too much stuff.
