Thread: what car are you camping with?

  1. #1

    Question what car are you camping with?

    So technically no one has any real idea what the array of cars will look
    like, with the new rule, even for a first timer like me, what do you think it will look like?
    I'm hoping for some monster trucks type vehicles for some shade in the morning.

    95 GMC Saffari. Only has 80,000miles. Everything works great, even the tape deck. This mini-van has never been driven hard and allways passes smog check. It's in perfect condition. I'm removing the back seats and making room for my gear .

    We'll have our Forester and our friends will have their Honda Pilot. I think we're all sleeping in-car.

    Sleeping in car = waking up in an oven.

    This is true... we're working on shade to cover both campsites, including the cars. And the tailgate would have to be OPEN. I'm way too claustrophobic to sleep in a closed up Subaru.

    Sleeping in the back of a truck does sound sweet, with a roll back canopy
    so you can gaze at the stars right before going to bed thinking how fucked up your are.

    Taking my 1986 Ranger, but camping in my tent. Your idea sounds great, but I don't want to wake up each morning with everybody able to see how fucked up I was when I went I finally passed out the night before. (Or, morning of?)

    I am renting pretty much the cheapest car you can rent. Only need room for 2 people, 2 coolers and camping gear. I was going to drive my Lamborghini from florida but I don't have much drunk space in that damn thing.

    Me and my tiny tiny two door 95' Honda Civic will be there! It takes up such a small part of my allotted camp space, it will be my minuscule partner in crime.

    not to mention your lambo probably doesnt get good mpgs.. rent a prius! save tons of gas money and have plenty of space for everything else.

    Is it alright to sleep in a rental car? Would they care if the car came back reaking of ball sack and cigs? I mean some febreeze should make everything copacetic.

    Yes, this is what we need, a campsite full of idling cars.

    I'll be in a Honda Element, which you TECHNICALLY could sleep in, but I'll be using it for storage and sleeping in a nice, airy, meshy tent as God intended.

    Ha

    We'll be driving my 09 Jeep Patriot... kinda nervous about putting 3800 miles on my new Jeep in under a week.... ouch.

    Definitely will be camping next to it though, that thing's solid black and probably cooks like an oven in direct heat...

    It's not a trampoline. It's shade. If I catch you jumping on it you'll get slapped with a palm full of mustard.
