Exactly right. And for newbies, the wind generally comes from the SW (which is toward 6:00 for most addresses)

U-shapes work better for radial "clock" streets, but try to grab the side of the street the wind is coming from

Code: Select all

          ==== D through K Street ==================="
               __                             ______ "
wind --> -->  |rv|                           | rv  | "
              |  |                            ------ "
              |__|                        __         2    5
               __                        |1 |        :    :
              |rv|        wind --> -->   |s |        0 to 0
wind --> -->  |  |                       |t |        0    0
              |__| ______                 --         "
                  |1st rv|                    ______ "
                   ------                    |  rv | "
              inner part of block             ------ "

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.
