    You have a pop up house... Does that count as camping? Haha

    Looks awesome. I'll put up some photos from our camping trip in a bit - completely different experience.

    I don't think I'd call it pop up! :lol:. It does
    Have a home made kitchen sink! Takes a little over an hour to get it all set up. 4 cots, shelves, table, kitchen area. We use 2 big tarps as a floor. Wood stove, table to eat at.
    It has an extended fly to give you a covered patio that i also put the cooking area in. This was just a 2 night trip so I didn't bother setting that up.

    I've learned over the years not to argue with anyone's definition of camping. To each their own.

    I get it.

    In fairness I bought this mainly for hunting. I'm in the bush for a week, maybe more when it comes to moose/deer/elk hunting. Dont want to be sleeping on the ground in a 6ft tent for that long.

    I think that worked. We were backcountry camping, hiking on a 29km loop out in the middle of nowhere (mostly - I was surprised at how many cars were at the trailhead, especially given the road to get there. We'd tried to get to this trailhead once before with our van and gave up and turned around. It was fine in the Ascent). We did 3 days of hiking and 2 nights camping. Beautiful scenery the entire time and outside of the last day with only 5k left to get to the trailhead, we pretty much had the trails to ourselves.

    Nice. Beautiful scenery, looks like your weather was way better than mine.

    Those stumps fires are great for cooking on.
    Have you got the wood stove tuned for night time yet to hold the fire all night? It's almost an art

    We had a bit of a heat wave over the weekend. We were up in the mountains so it wasn't quite as hot but nice to have the clear views. The West Coast has been crazy hot over the past few days, especially Sunday, where records were being broken. It was bad here in WA but even worse in California - they had to institute rolling brownouts with all the increased AC usage.

    When they stop calling them campgrounds and start calling them Glampground, I'll start saying I'm going glamping :lol:

    Yes I actually got it this trip. Stoked it at 12, got up at 6 and there was still a nice bed of embers.

    We've been getting out for some weekend camping trips since the parks opened up. We had a small trailer last year but it was a logistical nightmare to get a camper and car trailer up to the race track.

    Enter the slide in camper.

    It is great, always ready to go, and actually has more room than our old trailer with the bed up over the truck cab. Very happy with it, and I can tow my car trailer behind it.

    Tried to figure out a way to take the paddle boards out with us. Worked ok as long as I stayed under 20km/hr

    lol.

    We went with inflatable paddle boards - much easier to transport and I'm amazed how well they inflate and keep their stiffness.

    Unrelated, we have the same ladder.

    If I had my time back, I would have done inflatables.

    Oldest went back to school on Wednesday. He was pretty happy to see his friends. Emmett was pretty sad to see him leave the house!
