Vintage Snow Fun from the Land of Sky Blue Waters....

Postby Slim and Gabby » Tue Jan 13, 2009 6:14 pm

Our regular vintage camping took a detour to snow fun last week.
Slim got his longed-for old style wooden snowshoes for Christmas and couldn't wait to try em out. We were able to incorporate some of our fair weather camping goods for our snow venture.

Any of you SoCal folks looking for a cheap quiet family friendly snow adventure-Sequoia is the BEST. Here's where we usually stay:

Not ready to play Admiral Byrd just yet, but thought we'd share our fun at Sequoia National Forest. Lots of places in that neck o' the woods that still have that old-time he-man vibe.

Here's Slim admiring the scene:

And Gabby on the trail:

And here we are invoking the great god Norelco:

Anybody remember those swell santa claus razor ads from the 60's and 70's? We want to see those again! This is the best we can do:

And of course the other great outdoor aesthetic of the mid century-
HAMM'S Beer. From the Land of Sky Blue WA-ATTERS (wa-atters):

I love the old Norelco ad! They made another one a couple of years ago. I also like the old Hamm's commercials.
