The Great Outdoors - Vacation

“Came across this in a box of family photos tonight… As I’m told, my mom was camping in Naples back in the early 80s and snapped this shot of another family on the campgrounds. Note the man in the green shorts who was clearly the first one to pitch a tent. ”

  11. A-RON says:

    this reminds me of back when it was cool to display a boner in your polyesters

  12. Lisa says:

    Looks like he’s just pitching his own tent….

  16. Courtney says:

    And what is in grandpa’s pocket?

  17. Crimson says:

    Well hello, grandpa!

    I’m going to go throw up now.

  18. Renagade676 says:

    I just love how Grandpa is crossing his legs, and how the little girls don’t notice anything.

    Why it sucks being hip-height.

  19. Camille says:

    That man has a hampster in his Wilt Chamberlain shorts.

  20. Jonathan says:

    Totally creeped out. But laughing too hard to care.

  21. Cassandra says:

    The two Boner guys are funny and happy about camping. Way to pitch a tent.

  22. Millross says:

    Is Grandma thinking, “That never happens when we’re alone”

  23. Christina says:

    Grandma knows what’s up.

  24. Chris says:

    Can someone point me the way to the ranger station?

  25. takomamama says:

    It could be keys in their pockets. Lots of keys.

  26. Gregorian says:

    Isn’t this the movie where the little girl enters a beauty pageant?

  27. jenniep says:

  28. BP says:

    Is that a starfish in your pocket or you just happy to see me???

  29. Michele says:

    Grandma noticed! EWWW!

  30. donuteyes says:

    wow, camping is hard…

  31. Señor Loco says:

    I’m guessing those are actually bananas in their pockets, because they really don’t look that happy to see…

  32. Amy says:

    It’s all fun & games, until someone gets an eye poked out.

  33. Tracy says:

    am I the only one that automatically thought of Little Miss Sunshine?

  34. Kazz says:

    Well, you know what they say. Camping is in tents. And it looks like Dad has no trouble pitching one.

  35. Nicola says:

    Grandma is obviously irritated with anyone enjoying camping so much.

  36. BJMallory says:

    Well, they won’t have to go very far to find wood for their campsite.

  37. Big Shoo says:

    Ever heard the saying, “You don’t bring sand to the beach?” Well, you don’t bring wood to the forest, either.

  38. Michael says:

    What’s a camping trip without hot dogs?

  39. LeCrosse says:

    @ Saints Fan! I was about to say the same thing… Great minds… and I am a Saints fan, too 😉

  40. The old gal’s expression is priceless.

  41. BonzoGal says:

    Now there’s an upstanding family.

  42. janie says:

    Haha, look at the grandma like, “Wait a minute..”

  43. emblitz says:

    I an only imagine the things racing through grandma’s mind. If the term WT* was invented back then, i have a feeling it would be along those lines. She looks frightened.

  44. Tim says:

    Now, here’s a family that loves getting back to nature.

    No, I mean it – they REALLY LOVE getting back to nature!

  45. saintsfan says:

    look at granny taking it all in..lmao ..hahaha

  46. JOhn says:

    which one’s jerry? they both seem to enjoy the great outdoors

  47. taino sam says:

    talk about the redwood forest! my eyes! there’s not enough visine and bleach in the world for my eyes! lol…

  48. eugene says:

    apparently, it runs in the family

  49. bobert says:

    I don’t know what everyone is getting so upset about, like all the men in this forum haven’t had an accidental boner once in awhile. Especially in that rickety old van bouncing up and down over dirt roads. As proof I submit grandpa on the right, who also appears to be experiencing the phenomenon.
