Turn back the clock

Turning back the clock here more than twenty years ago.
First picture is of my youngest son, this was shot around 1988, he was around two at the time.
That was my first tent trailer, a used $500 one from Sears that I would later trade back to where I got it used for a brand new 1989 Flagstaff which was the same as a more expensive Jayco back in the day.



This is around 1990 or 91 as that was my fist 4x4, a 1990 Toyota Xtracab with the 22RE engine, and the newer Flagstaff tent trailer.



I believe this was shot up at the top of Crystal Mountain.



Hiking up at Rainier while camped there with the trailer around 1993 or so.



Greenwater on the river off of FS Road 70.



Lake Easton, youngest crankin' up the trailer.



Mount Rainier on the road up to Sunrise around 1990, we were camped below with the trailer.
I would love to get a photo of us now in the exact same spot.



Lightening Lakes campground up in BC around 1991.
One of four campgrounds in Manning Provincial Park, one of the best pay campgrounds I have ever been too.
Free firewood too at all Provincial campgrounds.



Lake Easton State Park again.



Kanasket Palmer State Park, a park local to me.



Forget at the moment where this is, but it is written on the back of the photo I scanned in long ago.



We use to get out about every other weekend from early May to Labor Day weekend.
An average of around ten to eleven times a year.

A few campfire pictures from my trip to Mt. Rainier National Park at the White River campground.

Not finished processing all the pics yet, so the campsite pics will come later when I get all the others done.

This one was done with the camera mode set to night view.



Same shot but in regular mode.

I realize I'm a bit late here, but... Corey, I enjoyed your old camping pictures from around WA. I've seen quite a few camping pictures of yours, it's neat to see that you used to do it with your little ones and your Toyota in the same (general) locations. I have a 9 month old and absolutely can't wait until he's psyched about camping with dad!

Anyways, here is a trip I took with my brother and dad to Olympic National Park in WA. Our camp was at Gladys lake for a few nights. Amazing...

Our Camp:


Our Brazen Neighbors:



The view from the mountain above our camp was decent...

Big Sur

Hadn't been camping in years and finally got to it with about a dozen friends and 3 campsites. Nothing special - total "car camping" - but we did some good hikes.

What I was most excited about was that, with 3 wheelbarrows of firewood, about 300 pounds of gear, top off, and 2 adults, we averaged 20 MPG (!). It's about a ~250 mile round trip and I did it on one tank.

Wife catching me off guard:


Me pretending to do something after above photo....


The Setup:


Even with the ZUK mod, some sag in the rear (think it's the firewood??):


More sag:


And the beauty shot. We had clouds the whole time on the coast but the temps were warm. This is a photo from the now demolished "Waterfall House" built by Helen and Lathrop Brown.

Corey, since you seem to be the Western Washington camping expert haha, what are the best campgrounds around here? Anywhere that's really secluded? I hate camping when you can see the other campers. know of any place that's got good places to go wheelinng nearby?

Great pics Dan.
Some of my fondest memories with my sons are from camping trips.
We were at Ipsut Creek campground (now washed out) at the NW entrance to Mt. Rainier National park and had deer walking through our campsite like in your pics.
I and my sons were in awe.

To be honest with you, I have been exploring the Greenwater area for over twenty years since it is very close by to me, and I have not seen it all.
If you want seclusion and wheeling, that is the place to go.

You get great views of Mt. Rainier on many of the switchback forest service roads, and many of them go by rivers and creeks.
You just pull off the forest service road and head down paths with many of them right next to the water, and most all have firepits made from someone laying up rocks.

I was up there two summers ago with my brother, but it was not quiet for us.
A college age crowd was up there partying after we had turned in for the night, and they were noisy the whole time I was there.
That is not the norm up there, they just happened to camp across the river from me.

But that area provides many old growth forest service roads to venture down and explore, and did I mention the views of Mt. Rainier

Kids and I camped twice at Lake Cushman State Park in the early 90s, very nice place.
Were you outside of the park at another location?
