Over the years I've thrown my bed down in some pretty rememberable cow camps. Some were pretty bad and some were real neat places. It always amazed me how fast a camp will fall apart if it,s not used regularly.
One of my favorites was the west camp on the old McMurtury ranch south of Nenzel NE. It was originally a one room school house that someone drug up against a set of hills east of Harding lake. There was a calving shed, a little barn and some wind break. The barn was basically big enough for a horse or two (too small to saddle up in) and a saddle rack. A couple of deer horns held bridles, halters and such.
There was no electricity or water. You had to haul water from a windmill and there was a real neat kerosene lantern. There was only one bunk againest a wall with a gas stove AND a gas refrigerator. It was the only one I'd ever seen but I was always fasinated with it. What a concept! You had to light a flame to make ice.
There was always alot of mice and skunks around with a good sprinkling of bull snakes. The mice kept the snakes fed and the skunks didn't bother much unless you dropped something heavy on the floor.
It was mostly used as a calving camp but was a good port in a storm if you were in the area. Calved alot of cows at that camp and if there was two of you's there was some late night card games or chess under that smoking lantern.
There's got to be some other Camp stories out there.
