I am speaking only of such downloads as might be thought extravagant. And it is conceivable that some folks might call it extravagant to pay thirty-five dollars for a thing to sleep in when you lie out of doors on the ground from choice, or thirty dollars for pots and pans to cook with when you are "playing hobo" as the unregenerate call our sport.

To practise shrewd economies in such things helps out if you are caught slipping in through the back gate with a brand-new gun, when everybody knows that you already possess more guns than you can find legitimate use for.

If one begins, as he should, six months in advance, to plan and prepare for his next summer or fall vacation, he can, by gradual and surreptitious hoarding, get together a commendable camping equipment, and nobody will notice the outlay.

The best way is to make many of the things yourself.

This gives your pastime an air of thrift, and propitiates the Lares and Penates by keeping you home o' nights. Horace is one of my all time heroes Wise words extend to what to do even before you venture out through the front door sneak your latest acquisitions in through the back door Written over a hundred years ago but some things don't change.

Every winter sees you again fussing over your kit, altering this, substituting that, and flogging your wits with the same old problems of how to save weight and bulk without sacrifice of utility. All thoroughbred campers do this as regularly as the birds come back in the spring, and their kind has been doing it since the world began.
