Default New camper from mo

Am retiring soon and plan on getting back into tent camping
It has been a few years since deer camp in a cabelas alaknak. I basically wore that tent out. Have replaced the cabelas tent with a kodiac 10x10 springbar. I have not officially commissioned the new tent yet. Am looking forward to it soon

Welcome to the forums! I feel camping is like riding a bike, lol, may be a little rusty getting back into it, but the know how clicks in.

We've been through the lot from camping (canvas frame tent), through trailer tents, folding campers and now caravans. Have camped over most of Europe, and now doing Gt Britain as OH is on dialysis, and find its just easier, and we also take our mainecoon cat with us as well. Have not seen some of the UK, even though I live here. Anyway Lurock, welcome to the forum

nice! Now, this is something unheard of. Does it wander off like cats usually do or does it stay near the tent? How does it know when you're about to leave?

Hi John. At home he can wander as cats do. But when holidaying, he has a halter, which in turn is clipped to a 30ft lead which is attached to the caravan. When we go either away or when we are coming back, he goes into panic mode, he just goes limp as a ragdoll cat does, those cats are famous that when you pick them up, they just totally go all limp. Try picking up a 20lb cat when he's like that, its like picking up a bag of cement - very heavy. He's ok once he gets to the site. We just request a pitch next to a hedge which he likes so he can watch out for mice and stuff. Once he's in the car (its a law in our country that a cat must be in a carrier), he just curls up and sleeps all the way

No. Don't think there would be a cage big enough. Depends on what size car you have I suppose. I do know that some dogs have a harness on which it clicks into the seat belt slot on the back seat, which holds the dog in place. Or if you have a hatch-back? then they just put up a guard between front and back of vehicle.
