So I like watching camping videos on YouTube from around the world. Very interesting to see similarities and differences and especially the gear people are using and the places they go. Lately I have been watching videos from Korea because I have family there and spent 5 years there courtesy of Uncle Sam doing a very different kind of camping. Lol.

I found this channel and have watched many of his videos. They really know how to do glamping right. Making the most of the weekend before getting back to work. They especially do some serious cooking and eating. The campgrounds are very interesting, with some really well manicured and laid out areas. The platforms for the tents were my favorite takeaway from Korean camping. Many of those camping areas also have water spigots and electrical outlets.

Anyway, this video is pretty representative of car camping in Korea, you don’t have to speak the language to see how they set up and use everything they bring along, and the scenery is really great. Hope you enjoy seeing how they do things in a different part of the world.

Cool. Watched all of it. I have some of the same equipment They have. Didn't understand a word but was nice to see camping is similar around the world. Thanks for posting.

If it's been done before, I can do it. Maybe not as good as some, but I can do it.

The meal looks fantastic. I don't care for Soju though.

Very cool. I lived in Seoul working for a Korean company in 2001. I used to do quite a bit of camping and mountain climbing/hiking north of Seoul. Gorgeous country and many people love to camp and hike there.

Soju is an acquired taste. I enjoyed it on occasion.

I like the tent platforms -- we should have those here for car campers.

With respect to my Korean friends, Soju and Pupju (sp?) are Korean truth serum at business dinners.

And kimchi is really an acquired taste.

Fond memories of good times on my business trips to Korea.

I had this shirt until my wife threw it away many years ago.

Not Soju, but it did happen in Seoul, real nice highline hotel.

We came back from a fancy on the floor evening meal, lots of truth serum and you don't pour your own, that's what friends are for. dinner is over, it's Friday eve and mandatory saturday early shift for the Korean team. My boss says back at the hotel, to The Oakroom we go. A quasi British style bar.

Now boss is as Irish as it gets and our host had a bottle of Cutty waiting for us, he politely tells hostess to take it back and bring a bottle of Jameson. The Jameson arrive and in a grand gesture to the two Yanks and three Koreans, he throws the cork away. Well, hours go by, a Korean piano player is tinkinling the ivories and a well rounded European lounge singer is singing the english hits she finally hits Take me Home Country Roads and I just about loose it.

We are in the not pain zone, tipping and toasting and snacking and grinning, ah poo Jameson is empty. Our Korean friends ooze into reluctant taxis and all three miss the 8AM sat roll cal. We didn't see our guy until afternoon we spent the day at Etawon (SP?) hey mister wanna buy genuine imitation Rolex?

An absolute high point of my world travels and a special toast to Y.S. Kim and the best boss i've ever had, John.

Been a while since Korean truth serum and that shirt is darn spot on almost forgot, that Jameson in 1997 was $300 that night.

Awesome story, Gary. I had some wild times in Seoul and other parts of Korea. Itawon was still going strong with the fake merchandise and expats in 2001.

Sorry it’s not a camping story but I truly enjoyed the country, the people, food and I was amazed at Korea. Sorry I’ve lost contact with my friends but I was able to return the hospitality by having Y.S. and associate to my house and even went to a park on a lake in OKC and use my dads old 425 to heat our lunch. Somewhere is a pic or two.
