Spargish, that tent was our family tent that i was introduced to camping in. My Dad bought it in 1985 and I bought it from him in 2009. Each sticker tells a holiday story, starting with Lower Sabie (Oct 1985), the first camp we pitched that tent at (roughly where the swiming pool is today).

The stickers:
