In addition to the "heavy lifters", there is the position of 'camp master' that is vital. He/She/They probably has the most experience of the campmates, has contributed much energy, time and/or resources, and is most likely Heavy Lifter Alpha.

In the past, our camp has agreed on a signpost close to where we *want* to camp. Whoever shows up first claims some space, then places signs with the actual location on the agreed upon sign post. Campmates that show up later goto the sign post and find out the final location.
