More Classic Camping

Complete Camping Cook Outfit for Only $6.15!  Get your’s today!

I want to share a classic camping advertisement for the F. C. Wilson & Co. from the 1916 Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalogue.  Weighing in at 20 pounds it might be a bit heavy for backpacking but would be great for the car, wagon, pack-horse, or canoe.  According to the online Inflation Calculator, this $6.15 kit would cost an equivalent of $149.05 in today’s U.S. dollar.  At first this sounds ridiculous but after looking at a recent REI catalog I think it might actually be quite a good deal.
