I have to use Jan's word too - FASCINATING! And it's so neat that you've got a photograph of a couple auto camping, just like in the McCall's article.

I always learn so much when I visit your blog. Thank you!!

love the idea of camping being a new outdoor 'sport'. And, frankly, I want one of those early camper-adapted vehicles. It doesn't look too different to what one would do with a Landrover in the wilderness nowadays...

I'd been looking for a photo of an auto tent for a very long time, and that one showed up on etsy about a month ago. Now I know why etsy calls it "pounce"!

How cool! Any chance of a scanned pdf? I would love to read the whole article! Have you seen the great articles posted at sundaymagazine.org?
Thank you for posting this!

Agreeing with Angela, would love to read that whole article. Reminds me of driving up to Alaska with my parents. I spent a few nights sleeping on the seat in the front of the truck. Of course....was a smaller child then lol.

I'm afraid I'm pdf-clueless. If someone could steer me to some easy instructions, I'd be glad to try it.

And I check out sundaymagazine.org. What a fun site!

I have a mac, and the only way I know how to make a pdf is this: start to print a file, but instead of clinking the "print" button on the printer window, use the drop-down menu on the lower left to "save as PDF".
On a PC, I have no idea. But if you want to scan the pages and send them to me, I can put them all together in one pdf file and send if back to you. You may have to send the scans separately, depending on the size. If you feel like doing it at all.

Angela, How nice of you to offer to do this. Let me see if I can figure it out, and if I can't i'll let you know.
