    Greetings everyone!

    Before I could decide what theme to chose for our next contest Owain Taggart suggested CAMPING. It's a good idea and I like it, so let's roll with it. Any kind of camping scene will do. I'll open this up to Sci-Fi and Fantasy, so the sky's the limit!

    I'll leave the entry thread open for one week, or until May 20th.

    New forum avatar rules apply, so maximum 200x200 pixels and/or 1 Mb size.

    My entry....

    I was tempted to lower the tone of the contest but instead...row row row your boat...

    "Run for your Life, Charlie Brown" was my first exposure to the Peanuts.

    (Erm, sorry about the Simpsons entries two contests in a row. I usually try to have a bit more variety, but in this case I was having a difficult time coming up with any ideas.)

    Well, I was hoping to find a tenting scene, but that seems to be a bit harder than I thought it would, so it seems like campfire it is. This one's from the Muppet movie from 1979.

    I think I have an idea for an entry. Would Scully and Mulder out at night and her singing Joy to the World to him, count as camping?

    I've never watched "The X-Files" so I'll have to let someone else make that call.

    Yeah, never seen it either. But maybe a few general guidelines?

    - Are they out in the wilderness?
    - Cut off from civilization?
    - Are they endangered by wild animals such as bears and raccoons?
    - Are they tenting, RVing, renting a cabin or just out in the open with sleeping bags?
    - Are they sitting around a campfire?
    - Are they enjoying any camping related activities, such as canoeing?

    If none of those, probably not. Does that line up with your thoughts, Shran?

    Yep. Sitting outside. Talking about sleeping bags. Is that close enough?

    Here's the clip.

    After watching the clip I'd say it makes the cut.

    ^that's adorable!

    You could make that bigger, if you want. The OP said it could be 200 x 200.
