Some of you know that this past December, I got rid of my Chevy so there’s no more sleeping at the Bowtie Inn. With my new hunting rig sleeping in the front seat can be done but I’m getting too old for that stuff. Now I’ve got this, it’s my THC (Traveling Hunting Camp) that I’ve been busy setting up & I thought I’d share it with you all
I’ve had these (tent & mattress) for several weeks now but last Sunday was the first good day with nothing on my do list so I set it up. I have to say once I got it straightened out & figured where to hook things, it went pretty darn sweet. I think that I can have it completely set up within 15 minutes. This is going to save me with having to head back into town to get a room or sleeping in the front seat on my truck on hunts I want to roost the night before. Not to mention this is going to make it fun for my son who likes camping & wants to start going on hunts out of state with me.
I’ve got a little modifications to do like a maybe get a stronger storage case so we can step up into my truck easier, a wedge for under the head of the mattress & a small self for my c-pap or alarm clock. My Tacoma has an AC plug in the truck bed so I could even take a toaster or k-cup machine if I want to make breakfast on the tailgate
After this season I'm thinking of getting a The Truenorth Big Tarp with adjustable poles so that I can set it up over the my rig. If I tie off one end of the tarp to my roof rack & stretch it over the tailgate area to make an dry area to stretch out in the morning, get dressed or I can even set up a cooking area if I'm on longer hunting trips. All I know is both my sons & I are pretty excited about getting out with sweet THC set up
I’ll post up the mods as they happen.
