What makes yours standout from others?

I know we all camp for different reasons and in different places. I do 100% of my camping at the ocean. No, its not quiet. Yes, its crowded, but that is what my crew enjoys. You see everything from tents to pop-ups to half million dollar motor homes. It seems everyone likes to decorate the outside of their RV and or the area around it. For those that enjoy this, what do you do that stands out from everyone else?

I dont know about standing out from others but I do get a "good idea" comments from folks. I always have two clamp on desk lamps (Lowes) with cfl lamps in them pointig up into the trees around the sitting area. This serves two purposes for us... Keeps the big boy flying bugs over their away from the where we are setting and also gives me a good idea where we are parked at our camp site...

The lamps are hitting the low branches of the overhead trees and bouncing back a good soft glow spread out light around the sitting area...

WOW that is a great idea.
I'll have to give it a try.
You didn't copy write it ?????? I hope not.
Do they plug into the 120 outlets or battery powered?

They are the standard gooseneck clamp-on 120VAC desk lamps (LOWES). I use the CFL bulbs in them to save energy... I think they do look pretty neat... Gives a nice glow around the sitting area reflecting back from the low branches above you and keeps all the big bugs over by the lights.... I just run an extension cord over from the camp power Pedestal 20AMP service receptacle.



Here is this photo you can see one pointing up and one pointing down on the lamp post at this camp site... Usually i have both pointing up into the trees... This camp site is Cloudland Canyon State Park in Trenton, GA in October with the leaves changing colors - beautiful place to be in October.

I know many people who have flags on their sites and many of them are made with PVC.
I decided a couple of years ago to make mine with an added touch adding solar lights to the top of the pole.
This gets peoples attention and it brings up many questions including "Where did you buy it?"
This may not be for everyone, but I do.
The link below is for a thread I started awhile back and it shows the flag pole and at night with the lights ON.
