Re: Going Alone...

there are some camps for solo campers to join up for a community of solo campers! no community art project, no dues, no shared amenities, just basically built in friends...

lots of people go alone it seems.

Re: cooling your tent or van

i know using grey water from food use isn't recommended... but how about using shower water? would the soap suds affect anything? i think i might make my space smell nice :)

how are people securing the endless breeze fan to their boxes? is it heavy?
