Was teasing us about needing a mail box
since we were there for so long so I made
a mail box for Camp
you ever have any problems with being in that same place for too long? What I mean is isn't there a limit on the number of days one can camp in the same place in national forest? Someone might know what the actual 'rule' is but I always heard it to be something like you could only camp 30days before you had to move at least a couple miles..?

I really like your mailbox! I've got a "huntin' camp" sign but the mailbox is great

i have a 36 foot fifth wheel with bunk house, satelite tv, microwave, forced air heating,a/c, refrig, stove, etc...
when i shopped last year for a new camper i checked alot out, i ended up buying an outback model.
most everything including the furnace runs off 12v, in case the honda generator dies. i have 2 solar panels for recharging if needed, or plug into the pickup.

that's base camp, we hike every day to the top, around,accross, thru everywhere we can during the day. if we are tired, we sit legally off the road and watch a mountain side as the sun sets, relaxing before going back to dinner and a movie.
no, we do not rough it, and we do get elk...

it's all about getting old and having a good time with friends.... we really don't care if we kill something or not.
one guy even flies in every year from england, 3 from tx. 1 from va., and me from nm.
I'm the mad Limey that flies across a couple of times a year to meet Splatt & the other great guys I got know through the FAL Files.
I guess he didn't have a camera with him & for some reason I can't upload the photo from my hosting site so here's a link to the photo of our "humble abode" at somewhere around 8,500'


You can't beat a bit o' comfort at the end of the day.

Re: Elk Camps

My 06 bivy camp. I stayed in it until I shot out, we also had a base camp at the trucks. We have made backpacking trips using a Kifaru Teepee, that works very well also.
