Dr. Cagliostro brings us this wonderful tableau of vintage expedition gear.
Obviously, heading into the wilderness with antique camping gear isn't the kind of thing that appeals to every pulp era gamer, but it's not as over the top as you may think. There comes a time when roughing it in the Adirondacks with nothing more than the pack on your back gives way to an appreciation for truly relaxing in the outdoors. With vintage and vintage-style gear like camp chairs and wall tents a simple getaway can be transformed into a luxurious experience. Not to mention how atmospheric an old school camp is.
Collectors of period outdoor gear have driven the prices of some items through the roof, but with a little smart shopping for vintage pieces and the judicious use of reproductions it's surprisingly easy to put together a complete set of kit. In many cases you'll find buying antique equipment is cheaper than purchasing the shoddily made modern alternatives.
