Question about parking & leaving early

Post by eddiewilson » Sun Aug 26, 2012 11:19 am

Greetings all,

First timer this year. Couldn't be more excited - I have read my Survival Guide cover to cover but the one thing I am not completely sure on is where I should park my car upon my arrival as I *unfortunately* can only be there for 3 days this year and need to leave on Thursday.

I am staying with some friends who are setup camp very close to First Camp and I would love any advice from y'all on where to best position my vehicle so that it's easy to get out on Thursday (and not disrupt anyone's campsite, it won't go above 5MPH trust me :D ) - but also hopefully be relatively close to where I am camping.

I'm arriving on Monday - any advice on a good place to place my vehicle would be very much appreciated.

Regardless of where you pitch your tent, make sure your campmates save space for your vehicle along the adjacent road.

Make sure you find a flat spot so your car won't roll away.

If you arrive on Monday there will be lots of room. Then all you need to ensure is that you don't get boxed in. A kind word with your camp mates should do.
