SurveyorSo you think you're a pretty good camper.

Join the Coast Surveyors as they make their way around the U.S.A. camping on the outskirts of cities, in our mountains and deserts, and on the shores of our continent.

Snow, heat, dust, and mud were all companions of the Coast Surveyors. Throw in a few pets, the wives and kids starting with the great field parties of the 1930's, and a dose of humor and you'll get the feel of camping with the Survey.

Don't forget flipping flapjacks over an open fire and maybe a little dose of moonshine to make one forget the rigors of a life in the field....
