Few impressions of our 2 night camping in a Rainforest Jump to Latest

Hi everyone,

just wanted to share our video of our camping trip to Booloumba Creek. The creek was dried out unfortunately, but despite that it is an amazing place. We cooked some nice food on the camp fire, saw some wild life. All on the video. Please check it out

Nice video! Nice setup with your camping. I like that tent. I had a similar tent called a turbo tent (no longer made) that also had the frame attached so it was pretty much pop it open. Since then, I went to a roof top tent on a small trailer I tow behind my TJ.

Also, sweet Jeep! It's refreshing to see a two-door JK.

Thank you grogie! Glad you liked it! Yes we loved the tent, it just came out few weeks ago from Coleman. Perfect little, but roomy tent, which is super quick to setup.

We have a trailer as well, but decided to build a second camping setup, which is smart / compact basically and that we can take in our Jeep without trailer. So far loving it. We kind of started going overboard with all the big camping gear since we got the trialer.

My wife and I right after buying my TJ new started taking two-week camping trips, typically 3,000 miles long, with what would fit in the back of the TJ. Which as you know isn't much! We first had a backpackers tent and a small cube cooler. I eventually bought a hitch rack and the turbo tent, cots, and a larger cooler. Trips were automatically better. I like to move around daily and not make a base camp, and even the turbo tent was a pain to setup/take down daily. So... I always had an idea for a small box trailer that a TJ could easily tow, so I had a friend build it for me, and eventually I added a roof top tent. (Link to trailer is in my signature.) Yes, it's pulling a trailer which you know has considerations to it, however now the trailer is a camping storage box that is always setup to go. It's also just made trips more enjoyable with added comforts and it's just quicker to setup/take down camp.

Anyway, you live in a beautiful country and keep enjoying it! Again, you've got a super cool JK.
