China’s Changing Camping Scene
By Chuck Miller

Camping has been around as long as nomad tribes have roamed the world but it wasn’t more than a little over a century ago that recreational camping became popular as a means to escape the drudgery of modern life and those long hours of toiling in the factory. With that in mind it is not surprising why camping is beginning to catch on quickly here in China. Instead of expecting to see tents spread out on any available square meter of park space during the major holidays, China is undergoing a rapid shift towards building their own camping culture like we experienced years before.

For those of us who grew up in distant lands whose fond memories of family camping trips are as familiar today as when we were running through the woods or sitting spellbound in front of a roaring fire roasting marshmallows, the outdoors has always carried a special attraction and we are about to see a lot more of this occurring here in our own backyard.

A History on Recreational Camping
The founder of modern recreational camping can be attributed to the Englishman, Thomas Holding, who wrote The Camper’s Handbook in 1908. His lifelong love of camping started as a boy when he crossed the American prairie in a wagon train in 1853 and continued well into his adult years as he chronicled his adventures of canoe and bicycle camping around the Scottish Highlands and parts of Britain from 1877 to the turn of the century. Holding founded the first camping club in the world in 1901, the Association of Cycle Campers, which, in 1907, had merged with a number of other clubs to form the Camping Club of Great Britain and Ireland.  

The first official Boy Scout Handbook was published in 1911 addressing the finer points of camping including an essay on tent making. After World War I, Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides, became president of the Camping Club of Great Britain and Ireland, which fostered the establishment of camping organizations in a number of western European countries. In 1932 the first international camping organization - the International Federation of Camping and Caravanning was formed.

In North America individuals were enjoying the wilderness for recreation since the mid-1800s when the first formal campground, The Gunnery Camp, was founded in 1861 as 2-week summer camping trip for a Connecticut boys school. Other organizations such as the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) in 1874 and Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) in 1885 created camps to promote outdoor activities for inner city youth. The Boys Club, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts opened camps for their members in the decade before World War I. The public’s reading of the adventures of John Muir and Teddy Roosevelt, instrumental in creating the National Parks, helped promote awareness of camping and it wasn’t long before The American Camping Association was founded in 1910.

In the 1930s the Civilian Conservation Corps, a New Deal public works program operating as part of the National Park Service, constructed more than 800 parks during the Great Depression. These facilities were turned over to state agencies, predominantly as state parks, and greatly fostered the strong growth of family camping in years that followed.

Clubs such as The Sierra Club founded in 1892 and the Adirondack Mountain Club in 1922 have always catered to campers but the organization of campers on a large scale did not develop until after World War II when more leisure time and the advent of RV – recreational vehicle - camping caused a tremendous growth in outdoor recreational camping. The post-war economic boom sent Americans to camping retailers & military surplus stores where they purchased tents, camper trailers and self-driving campers, and other gear in large numbers to enjoy the great outdoors.

Individual camping has been very popular in Australia and New Zealand, but organized facilities are relatively few compared with those in North America and Europe. Recreational camping has always continued to increase in popularity in parts of Africa and Asia, especially Japan, Korea and Taiwan.

Ground Camping
By far the most popular type of camping is with ground tents that have been around since the dawn of time when ancient nomads used animal skins for shelter. Aside from advances in fabrics and pole supports, not much has really changed from when the first Boy Scout Handbook offered with their review of the ten different types of tents available at the time. You still get to lay on terra firma and look up at the stars while being one with nature.

Eureka introduced the first easy to set up freestanding tent in 1959 and followed that a little over a decade later to offer the first lightweight backpacker tent. Today two second pitch self-opening tents and air tents with inflatable bows instead of collapsing fiberglass poles seem to taking the industry by storm.

The advantage of ground tents is that they, for the most part, are lightweight, easy to stow and much more affordable compared to other options that follow. It is no wonder that ground tents account for the majority of what campers use for their camping trips in the States and elsewhere around the world.

Recreational Vehicles
The birth of the recreational vehicle (RV) or caravan industry as anyone outside the States call them first came about in 1910 when towed campers were introduced by Los Angeles Trailer Works and Auto-Kamp Trailers. Known as “auto campers” or “camping trailers”, these vehicles were a forerunner of modern RVs. Pierce-Arrow unveiled their “Touring Landau,” in New York City the same year complete with a self-contained bathroom.

The 1920s brought the very first car camping clubs such as the “Tin Can Tourists” and campgrounds designed specifically for vehicles. Trailers such as Airstream and the Curtis Aerocar used aircraft-style construction and were equipped with beds, kitchens and equipped for electricity and water. After World War II the RV industry took off and travel trailers became the rage came by 1950. Self-contained drivable RVs came about during the same period and many of today’s RV manufacturers and brands started production in the 1950s and 1960s.

RVs and camper trailers come in all configurations and sizes with options that can raise the price from an affordable tow trailer to the sky’s the limit Class A motorhome fitted with stainless appliances, granite countertops, flat screen TVs and a faux fireplace.  Besides the obvious cost, the main challenge with RVs for most is the size and where do you store it when not being used even in America where one can see storage lots and driveways filled with them.  Here in China, I can only shake my head at where they can be kept let alone what it must be like to drive or pull a trailer on the roads.

Roof Tents
Roof top tents are a relatively new means of camping by which a folding canvas (soft shell) tent or fiberglass hard shell popup tent is attached to the roof of most any vehicle equipped with a roof rack. Compared to ground tents, roof tents provide additional safety and comfort since they sit above the vehicle leaving the inside of your car free of tents and bedding.

The first canvas roof tents appeared in Europe in the 1930s and became popular in continental Europe in the decade following World War II as a convenient and low-cost means of car camping. The East Germans, especially, loved camping with them on top of their cheap little Trabants and roof tents quickly became the de-facto means to camp for African safaris and Australian overland adventurers mainly for their safety by sleeping off the ground. Italy’s Autohome developed the modern hard shell design in 1958 and are known as one of the premier brands to this very day. America’s obsession for larger camper trailers and RVs undoubtedly dampened enthusiasm for roof tents until recently when overland / 4x4 enthusiasts starting getting the word out with influx of brands that started to arrive on the market.

Some of the reasons why roof tents are becoming ever more popular and why I was sold when I saw my first one 6 years ago:
Comfort: All you need for a good’s night sleep including a comfortable high-density memory foam mattress is already in the tent.  No need for air mattresses or sleeping pads and you can even leave your sleeping bags, blankets and pillows in the tent.
Convenience: If you like to move from place to place to check out different areas over a short period of time having a tent on the car makes it easier to stop, deploy and sleep compared to a ground tent.
Mobile tree house: Who doesn’t love having a tree house when they were growing up? Kids absolutely love them as do 95% of the adults who haven’t seen one before.
Quick setup and packing: Set up takes no more than 3-4 minutes from stopping the car to climbing into bed and the latter takes about 10 minutes.
Rain: This is the primary reason why many, myself included, choose to swap a ground tent for one mounted atop their vehicle. When you have to pack up that sopping wet tent, ground sheet and fly, pack it in a bag, put it into your car, then 8-12 hours later open it back up and try to get it dried out before setting down again to sleep in it tends to make for one miserable night or nights as so often was the case.
Space saver: No more tents, ground tarp, sleeping bags, air mattresses or cots to stuff inside one’s vehicle taking up precious space since everything stays in top of your car.

Camping’s Great Leap Forward
This could be considered China’ Great Leap Forward in regards to camping but its been quite a long slog over the past decade by the local RV industry with assistance from American & European RV leaders who have been working hard to promote the camping lifestyle through consulting, trade shows and exports of established RV brands into the local market.

There currently are more than 330 campgrounds for RV and tent camping in China with 28 located in Zhejiang. Of these, 8 are within Hangzhou or within an easy drive of the city:

Fuyang New Milton Campground 富阳新沙岛露营地
富阳市东洲街道新沙村新沙岛度假区

Lin’an Qingshan Lake Campground 临安青山湖露营地
杭州市临安青山镇青山湖琴山码头

Qiandao Lake RV Camp (Jiang Jia) 千岛湖房车露营俱乐部(姜家营地)
淳安县姜家镇(淳开公路44km)

Qing Gu Campground 大清谷房车营地
杭州市西湖龙坞大清谷景区

Shi Lang Gold Beach 浪石金滩
桐庐县横村镇浪石村

Tianlu Leisure Expo Garden RV Camp 天禄休博园房车营地
杭州休博园湖畔区

Tonglu Jiangnan Longman Bay Campground 桐庐江南龙门湾露营地
桐庐富春江支流大源溪入口处

Zhongnan Baicaoyuan Camping Spot 中南百草园露营点
湖州市安吉县递铺镇马鞍山村

What’s even more exciting is that Xianghu immediately south of Binjiang is slated to open several large RV campgrounds mid-2016 with amenities that will rival anything offered in the West. Think of them as a KOA on steroids, one even sporting its own waterpark & plenty of open space for sports and family activities around the lakefront. This is all part of the ever expanding Xianghu project that is designed to make it one of the top five natural resort destinations in China.

In addition to the established campgrounds around Hangzhou,  Anji and Moganshan offer some nice quiet secluded spots to camp in the mountains and around reservoirs that dot the area.   One just needs to do a little digging to find a choice spot.

It is no wonder that local RV dealers in Hangzhou such as California RV – China’s largest US motorhome and RV dealer – see the potential of what is to come. They even offer daily and weekly rentals on much of what is parked in their showroom.

With all the open spaces available in the local area you don’t have to settle for the crowded walkways of Xihu and the surrounding tea fields in order to get back to nature. You can easily find a place within an hour of town to pitch a tent or park your vehicle to sleep under the stars but above all, get outdoors as often as you can & always remember this is how memories are made.

On this Harvest Moon: The Mid-Autumn Festival

This year the Mid-Autumn Festival, or Moon Festival, falls on September 13th. This is the 2nd most important festival in China, after the Chinese New Year/Spring Festival blow out extravaganza. The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival that coincides with the autumnal equinox and marks the end of the summer harvest season, and its date varies from year to year because the Chinese can’t seem to let go of the Lunar Calendar. Of course, they’ve seen silverware too, but Jerry Seinfeld already did that bit.

Like everything else here, the history of the Mid-Autumn Festival dates all the way back, 3,000 years, to the Shang Dynasty, when the powerful sorcerer Lo Pan broke the curse of immortality by marrying a girl with green eyes…no, wait, that was the plot to Big Trouble in Little China. Here’s the real one, according to legend (or, Wikipedia, if you want to be a jerk about it):

“Chang'e and her husband Houyi were immortals living in heaven. One day, the ten sons of the Jade Emperor transformed into ten suns and scorched the Earth. Having failed to order his sons to stop ruining the Earth, the Jade Emperor summoned Houyi for help. Houyi, using his legendary archery skills, shot down nine of the sons, but spared one son (who conveniently became the Sun). The Jade Emperor was obviously not pleased with Houyi's solution to save the Earth as it involved Houyi murdering nine of his sons. As punishment, the Jade Emperor banished Houyi and Chang'e to live as mere mortals on Earth.

Seeing how miserable Chang'e felt over her loss of immortality, Houyi decided to go on a long, perilous quest to find the pill of immortality so that the couple could become immortal again. At the end of his quest he met the Queen Mother of the West who agreed to give him the pill, but warned him that each person needs only half the pill to become immortal.

Houyi brought the pill home and stored it in a case. He warned Chang'e not to open the case and then left home for a while. Like every other woman in the history of the world, she didn’t listen. She opened up the case and found the pill just as Houyi was returning home. Nervous Houyi would catch her fiddling with the pill, she swallows the whole thing like a stooge and starts to float into the sky because of the overdose. Although Houyi could have used his wicked archery skills to shoot her and tether her down, he couldn’t bear to do it and Chang'e kept on floating until she landed on the moon.

Although Chang’e missed her husband dearly, she wasn’t alone. She did have company of a jade rabbit that manufactured elixirs, and that of the lumberjack Wu Gang. The lumberjack offended the gods in his attempt to achieve immortality and was therefore banished to the moon. Wu Gang was allowed to leave the moon if he could cut down a tree that grew there. The problem was that each time he chopped it down; it would instantly grow back, effectively condemning him to live on the moon for eternity. Gods are tricky that way.”

So to commemorate this story, as well as the end of the harvest season, people throughout China gather their families together to catch up while eating moon cakes (discussed in more detail later) and pomelo. They also light lanterns to adorn their homes, temples, and even the sky. This last kind of lantern, called a, “sky lantern,” is really quite cool. They’re basically an ornate box kite that’s lit with a candle, but when they’re launched, after night fall, they make for a beautiful, candlelit sky. Add to this luminescence that of the full round moon and you’ve got yourself the makings of one festive evening. It’s also the perfect occasion to pull out your old Neil Young albums (namely Harvest and Harvest Moon) and rock out.

Alternate Uses for Moon Cakes:

Let’s face it; the moon cake is the fruitcake of China. No one actually wants them (other than for re-gifting purposes). They’re just the gift you give people to let them know how little you care for them. For the person on the receiving end, it’s really a slap in the face. The giver of said crap cakes gets to slide by on the kindness of the gesture, while you’ve got to work up a smile, and pretend to appreciate what is in essence, an empty, backhanded act of passive aggression. Giving someone moon cakes is the same as saying, “I’ve nothing but contempt for you, but I do plan on knocking you up for a favor in the next couple weeks, so try not to choke.” But all’s not lost because moon cakes can serve many other functions besides pissing all over the definition of cake. So as those decorative boxes of banality from all your condescending know-nothing colleagues at work pile up in your home, don’t think about how drunk you’re going to have to get to choke them all down. Get creative. Think like Martha Stewart, or just keep reading and use some of the ideas we’ve come up with. It’s a good thing.

Stabilize that wobbly chair or coffee table

One of the nice things about a cake that’s got the density of a brake pad is that it can endure a sizeable amount of force without breaking apart. That makes it one of the best materials to use to support that bothersome short leg on your table, chair, or bar stool. It also won’t scuff up your hardwood floors.

Serves as a fantastic replacement puck for ice or street hockey

Thanks to the moon cakes stout, cylindrical design, (It’s called, yeast, you a-holes! It’s what makes baked goods fluffy and delicious. Stop living in the past.), it has, not only the same shape as a standard ice hockey puck, but also, almost, the exact same dimensions. So here’s what you do. Take a box of these abominations and throw them in the freezer for a couple hours while you gather the gang for a good old fashion game of street hockey, or take them down to the skating rink at the MixC Mall and have at it.

Give to the needy

This is just to prove our point that these shit snacks are universally reviled. Go up to a homeless person asking for money and give them a box of these bastards instead, and see if you don’t get pegged in the back of the head with one as gratitude for your selfless gesture.

Protect yourself from stray dogs

It’s late and you’re stumbling out of the bar after a few too many with your buddies. Your senses are impaired, as is your sense of direction. You find yourself alone, walking down a dark street when you spot a mongrel dog that has shown an interest in you. You’re too drunk to outrun it, and it’s the only thing between you and your warm bed. What do you do? You pull out the moon cakes that some jackanapes forced on you and you force them right into the dog’s mouth. Like peanut butter on their nose, this should keep it occupied for at least 10 minutes, giving you plenty of time to make a staggering escape.

Whip at motorists who don't obey the traffic laws

How many times have you been on your bike, or in a taxi, and you’ve almost been killed by some motorist who thinks the rules don’t apply to them? If you’ve been here a week it’s happened at least once. Don’t lie to us. Of course, you want to throw something at them, but all you have handy is your cell phone and/or wallet and, obviously, you can’t throw those. Moon cakes combine the heft of a billiard ball with the softness of a dessert you’d still pass on in a hostage situation. You make your point, no damage to the target’s car, but the message was received. Everyone wins.

Earmuffs in the winter

Get creative this winter and be the first one on your block to chase away the chills with some homemade, moon cake earmuffs. All you need is a needle, some decorative, elastic yarn, 2 moon cakes (one for each ear) and a microwave. Cut 5 lengths of yarn at a measure of one and half times the circumference of your head. Work the yarn through the moon cakes laterally (through the sides). Adjust the position of the cakes so that each one rests comfortably over each ear, with your lengths of yarn going around your head like a sweat band. When you’ve got them positioned how you like them, tie the ends of your yarn together to ensure a snug fit around your cabeza. When you’re ready to hit the town, throw your stylish new earmuffs in the microwave for 30 seconds and prepare to laugh derisively at Old Man Winter.

Haze the new guy

Like snake wine and unicycles, moon cakes serve no purpose. They do, however, work well for gags, especially when the new guy in your office starts getting a little too big for his britches. Knock him down a peg, and remind him of his place by challenging his manhood with a moon cake eating contest. Basically, you just tell him that it’s a rite of passage we’ve all gone through and if he can’t eat 10 moon cakes in 10 minutes, no one will respect him. Whether or not he finishes them is beside the point. The point is, no one else is going to eat these things and they’re starting to take up space.

And there you have it. Seven great ways to get rid of your moon cakes, when re-gifting is simply not an option, but by no means, are these the only ways. Get creative and think up some yourself. You like building models? Build yourself a 1/10 scale trebuchet and see how far you can wing them. Or give them to kids. They’ll put anything in their mouths. Happy Mid-Autumn Festival, everybody!

Dean Morrison, who is the champion of Australia and European Division of World Men's Shortboard Surfing Championship Tour. He is one of the most celebrated Australian surfers of the modern era, finishing a career best ninth in 2007. In the water Dean is a pocket dynamo, known for his compact, fluid style and sublime cutback. On land his humility and good nature ensure he is the kind of pro surfer who is approachable for people from all walks of life.

Eneko Acero, one of the most important and influential surfers of Spain and Europe. At that time it was just him on a worldwide tour with surfers from all over the place but his hometown/country. Still today, Eneko is surfing in a daily basis, manages a team of an international brand and of course proudly holds the surname Acero, a surfing family you might heard of from him, his older brother Iker Acero or the charismatic Kepa Acero.

Kyle McGeary, Team (NSSA) champion surfer, he is an underground local surfer from Huntington Beach, California. "Never heard of Kyle? Then you probably don't surf the pier, because if you did, you'd see him hucking big rotators everyday."

Made Garut Widiarta, born and raised in Kuta he started surfing at the age of 9 at his home break Half Ways, Garut is one of the most recognizable Indonesian surfers in the world and he has received more high profile attention in the media than any Indonesian surfer since Rizal Tanjung. Is name is I Made Widiarta a.k.a Garut.

The top local surfers will also participate on behalf of Chinese National Surfing Team. Surfing in the Qiantang River has only been allowed since 2008. During the competition, surfers will follow the tidal bore in motorboats and jet skis, and then take turns riding the waves.

Surfing will be included in the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo. The inclusion has given a boost to the sport in China, where it remains relatively new.

Hangzhou government hopes the competition can further promote the sport among citizens, especially the youth.

The competition will be broadcast nationwide by China Central Television.

HIS Welcome Back BBQ Party, A Great Event For The HIS Community!

On Saturday, September 7th, 2019, Hangzhou International School held their Annual Welcome Back Barbecue and once again gathered the HIS community, parents, students and teachers, they had an opportunity to welcome the new families and to catch up with the old friends while enjoying themselves, the tasty food, and the activities provided.

MORE’s editor Loren was fortunately enough to be invited, while it was initially a little foreign to him—not having kids going to the school, not being a Binjiang-er—his years of being in Hangzhou felt like they finally paid off, and he bumped into a good cross-section of international folk he has known for a while now.

The food was predictably excellent, with burgers from returning favorite Slim’s one of the queues we had to try, but also present was the Indian faire from Pita’s and Tika’s and pizza from Angelo’s.

The kids had a great time too, with musical and dance performances, face painting and candy.

We had a great time talking to some new and returning teachers, eager to get the new school year fully underway, and had a great time talking about the crafts of teaching and parenting, as well as the sense of community that HIS brings to its families and faculty who come together from more than 50 nations to make events like this fun and engaging. We are looking forward to continue having a great school year!
