Whose camp is this?

Saw this today on Jalopnik:

That sure looks like a CQ with a nice shade on the table, and a few other lanterns, too.

Gotta be one of you all?

This could be a lot of people. There is a local group of VW enthusiasts here in southern California (and beyond) who are also into Coleman gear, but that landscape doesn't look like anything around here.

Wow talk about a nice set up. I'm liking the Rayo-Vac lantern in the bus window too!

Sounds like some folks I need to meet!

And, no, John, you don't see many mature broadleaf hardwood forests out here in the West. I'm guessing Europe? The US East somewhere?

Looks like a great place to camp anyhow!

Steve investigates while I’m stalking.
I’m not sure if this is the van, during my investigation I found 6-8 very similar vans side by side in one picture. If it’s this van the guy is famous

Those rigs are far too nice for the places I go, when I go.

Nice stable, Mike! Those look like what I'd drive to where I often drive.

I'm sure I've asked before, but what year is your sweet Vanagon Westy? Looks like round headlights in the pic.
