    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!

    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.

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

    We donated a surplus army command tent to the Boy Scouts. It took up most all of the trunk of a large car when folded up, but gave us a 2-room tent when we did our 2 week campout every year. Slept a family of 5. Took 2 to lift it.

    Marine tents were big with heavy poles in the center with a center beam, smaller wood poles on the edge. Could sleep over a dozen on cots in those things. Or you snapped your shelter half to someone else’s shelter half to make a whole tent, along with sharing pegs (5 each, 10 total), poles (one 3-section, two required) and rope (one each for each end)
