Back in the day !!

We camped in my Grand parents traler a Star Craft pop up it was a war wagon for sure. the canvas sides were shrunk away from the body of the pop up part . we had a huge florescent light tht had a huge battery on it. we had 3 25x15 tarps over it i was around 9 years old. it did not matter how many tarps were over the this thing it always leaked onto your legs or your stomache if it was a rainy week end you either had wet legs wet feet or you were completely soaked through a sleeping bag. The spirit of getting used to it its where we were all the time. It was like magic there was stream and me and the dog played in it all day. and built dams and ate lunch under a cuge canvas tarp. the fire never seemed to go out i dont know who that would have been ?? we were little kids i will never forget my times at Chilson Camp Ground i think there was 20-30 maybee sites we all hung out and did BBQ's. They had a swiming hole it was dammed up on one side and welded barels took the water out to the brook 30 feet down a hill. It was the bounciest diving board ever the following year they closed I was bummed out it was total freedom as a kid all over there was no place we could not go. it was such a great memory. Now i cant tow a trailor says GM well i am building a carbon fiber , kevlar trailer , with some insane science behinde it maybe its just insane out of wood it would weigh hundreds of pounds out of aerotech materials it will weight 1/4 these campers are super i could live in a 16 footer they are great if It works for my trailor onto hybrids then electrics thanks for having me on here i will ask tons of questions. Have a great spring.
