Started out camping in a 10'x12' Coleman Tent in 1970 with DW and DD - one year old. Camped in Federal Campgrounds in northern Georgia for $2.00 a nite.
Camped with same tent (it had a floor) mostly at Hunting Island near Beaufort SC until DD was about 16. Bugs ate us and raccoon got into our 3 way Coleman cooler and tried to steal our steaks. Managed to get him to drop them, washed them off and cooked them. Racoons used to come thru the campground at dawn and rummage thur all the trash cans even thou they were mounted on wooden strands a couple of feet off the ground.
We did not return to camping until 25 years later in the trailers listed in the signature.
SC campgrounds now have the bugs under control and I haven't seen any raccoons!
