    Except for, the woodsmoke sounds like my time in the army. (Our tents smelled like mildew and CS.)

    That sounds like the little canvas pup tent I had as a kid.

    Car camping at it’s best, no worries about weight for the tent, ice chest or keg.

    Yeah I remember those tents – 200% heavier with morning dew every morning by the ocean side.

    I remember taking my son on his first cub scout campout-thee older guys ran ahead and claimed all the beds in the two available cabins and left us with a leaky canvas tent….however, I had driven my conversion van to the site….in it we were toasty warm, dry….and watching movies on the tv. Also had cold drinks in the mini fridge and snacks-worked out to our advantage, he was well rested for the competitions the next day!

    This is one of my favorite Hubris strips. Fairly simple-sounding gags tend to jump out at you or take a LONG time to distill. This one took a long time. Many thanks to a couple of friends who let me think out loud in front of them until this cartoon finally emerged.

    Oh, they’re out there – won’t shill for the companies – but Daughter’s #1 and #2 grew up in a canvas wedge tent, with Maman making toads-in-a-hole over a wood fire and Pere bringing another two kettles of water for coffee and washup.

    I remember when fold up cots were made of wood and canvas.
    Not aluminum and nylon.

    Morning Folks… brings back memories of Winter Camping in Boy Scouts…

    We had one of those when I was a kid. Took two or three hours and an engineering degree to get it up, but it was awesome once it was. Yosemite childhood. Good times.

    I think this may be one of, if not the best strip for Hubris ever!

    I hate to blaspheme, but my time in the Army cured me of camping. I now consider a 2 star motel to be “roughing it”.
