Default What the box can do for you! (Camping w/pics)

This was my first true endeavor with the box. Sure I drive it to
work everyday, yeah I have done a few minor mods, but I haven't
taken it camping....

The wife and I, including our dog Samara, went up north to a
campground just outside of Payson, AZ called Houston Mesa
Campgrounds. It was our first time there and it was a pretty nice
campground.

The Box did surprisingly well, handled the 6% grades pretty well. I
had to downshift into 3rd once, but usually stayed in 4 going up
the hills and going about 50mph. I might have been able to push it
a bit more, but I am not about tearing up my engine to arrive
someplace 5 minutes sooner. I was very pleased with the
performance.

We packed the Box full of stuff too, we purchased a Yakima Roof
Rack for the Box, so we made use of that.

Take a look at our pics. We came in only one car, so everything you see came in the box. Pretty cool if you ask me.

These were taken with my camera phone, sorry for the poor quality.


The box loaded with our stuff. My dog doesn't act normal when the
camera is out....



Our tent, nice size too, I believe it is a 5-6 person....





Propane Lantern and stand....


Our 10x10 canopy....


Close up of our "kitchen"....
Table:

Cooking on table:

Dish washing stand:


We brought some firewood as well, glad because there wasn't any
scraps laying around. Needed all the wood we had...


All in all it was a blast, but the trip made my car extremely
dirty. I think I have a problem because I had to wash it and
vacuum it out as soon as it was unloaded, I can't stand it being
dirty!

I love the box!

That's awesome! Those pictures make me want to go camping. I've never been before. That's cool that you fit all that stuff AND the dog in there. Somebody's got good packing skills

Thanks - I packed as well as I could. We used to go camping with our GMC Jimmy but now having two Scions we had to really rethink the camping thing. Packing was the most important key!

We should do a Camping/Fishing meet somewhere! And just consume a lot of beverages.

Sounds like fun!!!
