Here is a pic of airplane camping with my Lazair. Pretty darn fun. This 'campsite' was just off of the runway at Alpine, Wyoming. I camped there twice. This was the "layover" point for some of my cross countries going up to my cabin in Island Park, Idaho.

You cant bring to much with you though, maybe some power bars, a water bottle and some matches right?

I suppose if you took a gun or bow and arrows you could probably eat some of those pesky gophers as well.....LOL

Im not even sure how you fit the tent on your plane, maybe it compresses into a small enough package to stow somewhere?

Forget a sleeping bag ....way to bulky.

What did you bring and how, where did you stow it on the plane?

That tent is a real luxury for sure. Seems to me they slept under a wing in the old days. Great picture- gives me a push to do the same!

Well, it was one piece of work trying to get everything to fit. The sleeping bag would go under the seat and fuel tank. The tent would fit on top of the right wheel pant. The pack (clothes, food, water, tools, plugs, oil, etc.) would fit under my legs. I also carried some 'in case' fuel (2.5 gallons) in the red tank above the main. This was mostly for the possibility of winds aloft not cooperating with me. Pretty crazy I know, but what fun it was. It's a good thing I'm not a very big guy.

This picture truly testifies of my craziness. It was taken at Smiley Creek, Idaho. Great airport. Free showers and camping, restaurant, fuel, etc.

Damn that Lazair is loaded down like a pack mule. Ha Ha, too cool ! Just goes to show the plane is tolerant CG wise. Very lucky you purchased Lonnies plane with P-tips on it. If you were using the Bi-props you would have jettison some of that load.
