    I really get amused when youtoobers recycle ideas from the early 1900s... good try though...
    Here are a few links to some more old camping info;
    https://openlibrary.org/search?q=cam..._fulltext=true
    https://openlibrary.org/works/OL4965674W/Camp_cookery
    https://openlibrary.org/works/OL4965..._and_woodcraft
    https://openlibrary.org/search?q=Nes..._fulltext=true

    Unfortunately the really good stuff i.e. The Art of Travel by Galton, Sir Francis, is being pulled off the web by by ripoff artists who copyright texts that were in the public domain...
    EDIT found the 1867 version (I prefer the newer editions) at google books
    https://books.google.com/books/about...d=CC5JAAAAIAAJ
    Enjoy!

    2006 Jeep Rubicon; 4.11 gears, 31" tires, 4:1 transfer case, lockers in both axles
    For DD & "civilized" camping; 2003 Ford explorer sport, 4wd; ARB & torsen diffs, 4.10 gears, 32" MTs.
    Ground tents work best for me, so far.
    Experience along with properly set up 4WD will get you to & through places (on existing, approved 4WD trails) that 4WD, alone, can't get to.

    Well that's not fair I'm around 40 years past millennial - and I use backpacking stoves and cast iron for car camping. I don't give much thought to weight at all. For me it's all about saving space so I can bring more stuff (like THAT makes sense).

    Do we know the guy is a millennial?

    Saving space to bring more stuff is a VERY logical thing.

    Sometimes I'm not so sure myself.

    Weight really only matters to backpackers (who could use metal tent stakes to perform the same function (another very old trick) if they are so old school as to build a fire on the ground... as I do; no criticism from this quarter).
    The OP'S (Original poster's) age/generation doesn't matter, IMO. They do have a (hidden) point; many folks may not be aware of this old trick and so it is worth discussing (helping to keep this site moving and interesting)...

    Enjoy!

    Yes indeed! I wish I could claim it. I found this in an old book years ago. Just trying to keep it alive. most people forgot about these old ways. Thanks for the positive comment!
