For those of you on large teams. Our team has doubled the last two years and we are now looking at 38-40 riders all week. Last year we had 30 each day and found it very hard to find a decent place to camp that was not in the beating hot sun. Does anyone have any tips or ideas on how to pre arrange camping options prior to the week?  How do those of you from other large teams find adequate camping?

  • sometimes we make our own arrangements through contacts someone has & sometimes we go with what the town camping committes has arranged. 120 people plus 24 ft truck & a van & a 20×20 canpoy means about 1/3 to 1/2 football field or 4-5 residences, neighbors or across the street from each other. saw the math once, think it was 10×10 feet per tent for an average, that leaves room to tie down if necessary and for passage between.
