Carole and Clark, camp

No, not as in Susan Sontag or the 1966 "Batman" TV series. (For that "camp" from Carole Lombard and Clark Gable, see "White Woman" and "Parnell," respectively.) The camp we're referring to is this:

Yep, Carole and Clark roughing it in the great outdoors, not a director or studio boss in sight. And some of the equipment they used is now available, via eBay.

The "C.G." on the bag is said to prove that it was Gable's. Much of his estate was picked up by someone from the Walt Disney Company (which doesn't seem all that interested in camping, but recently successfully hunted for Fox), then sold at auction by Christie's in 1994. More proof:

A few of the items from this kit are missing, but most remain.

The seller, a Mississippi pawn shop, is offering this for $3,895.95, or you can make an offer. The auction is scheduled to end at 7:07 p.m. (Eastern) next Friday.

Are you interested? Learn more about it by going to https://www.ebay.com/itm/Clark-Gables-and-Carole-Lombards-Personal-Pinic-Camping-Set-COA-Walt-Dinsey/123257010207?hash=item1cb2b0b81f&_sop=10&_nkw=carole+lombard&_sacat=0&_from=R40&rt=nc. Perhaps the next time you get away from it all, you can do it Hollywood style.
