    Not the best pictures, but I like to hang around in camp.

    Is The roof top tent over a hard top or a soft top with the roof rack (I can tell from the second picture).

    I'm too old to tent. I really like hard wall and doors. And I lean towards tear drop style but NO one makes a trailer which holds yer doors so I built my own...

    I'm currently using an old backpacking tent. I'm about to pull the trigger on a 4? man (8'x8') with enough head room to stand up in. Iould also like to be able to use a cot during the warmer weather.

    I went through Hope BC last week. I should have hung around a little longer.

    I spent the weekend at the annual VARAC (Vintage Auto Racing Association of Canada) Vintage Festival at Mosport which is north east of Toronto. I can't remember the last time I missed this race weekend. We had a group of about 25 race enthusiasts. The featured marque was F1 cars. upload_2017-6-19_8-19-15.png
