I believe that camping while in the Armed Services counts as double time

First camping trip I was about 11 years old. I am now 63. This also includes being a staff member and Ex Director of a resident camp for 9 years that emphasized outdoor camping trips.

On and off since my oldest was a Weblos. I earned the job of campmiester while he was in boy scouts. Then the divorce.


The current woman in my life really enjoys the outdoors! We started tent camping in 2006 and I insisted on a hard-sided trailer in 2009.

I only counted the time camping with wife & kids (26 years).
Typical progression, tent, pup-up, trailer, and now a FW that it's only the 2 of us .

Didn't include the time camping with my parents when I was a kid.

I'm 65 , so probably 60 years or longer camping, though we have pictures, can't remember back that far . My Mom and Dad used to take we three kids tent camping at a very early early age..Then Cub AND Boy Scout camping... Got married at age 20, wife was 18...Borrowed a buddy's pop-up and we camped on our Honeymoon...Purchased first camper, a pop-up in 75, after 4 yrs in USAF...Been towing every since. Pop--up's, a Hi-Lo, TT's and now 5er's for the last 15 yrs or so...(oh, wife and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary this past August camping in our 5er about 1 mile from where we spent our Honeymoon

Made a lot of great memories with wife, children and grandchildren.

I agree, though while in Viet Nam, never thought of it as camping...(4 years USAF)

I remember my parents 1st pop up.
They bought if from Montgomery Ward and my dad had to put it together in the parking lot so he could pull it home.
Had to have been some time in the late 50s or early 60s.
