    102 In most of the northern, and eastern US, you should have no trouble finding a campsite,. There will be little competition. With 3 feet of snow, iced over roads,electrical and cellular outages, plus flash flood warings, you may have to hike back country to get past those pesky park rangers. One good thing, since their governors may have already declared a state of emergency, a lot of them will be so tied up helping rescue stranded motorists that they’ll stay out of your way AS YOU STARVE TO DEATH after breaking a leg.

    I live in the San Gabriel Valley, in CA. I’ve got mountains to the north of me, and deserts to my east and south. There’s a dry jungle directly west, but nobody camps in Los Angeles if they can help it. I haven’t spent a weekend in the local mountains in years, because if the camping spots aren’t occupied by people escaping the very mess they created, they’re occupied by people recreating their neighborhood with loud incomprehensible music, unleashed dogs and children running all over the sites, trash and a general disrespect for nature. Folks driving past the West Fork of the San Gabriel River in the Angeles Nat’l Forest (Diaper Canyon) know exactly what I’m talking about. The only time I get to camp for a weekend, is when I get about a weekend’s drive away from Nuevo Mexico del Norte (Los Angeles County)…sometimes…

    I live in Westchester County, NY and in the past I would travel the US-and Canada camping.
    Now at over 65 years old, I found I can enjoy camping just a few miles from my home in Canopus lake or Croton Point park, and still run home if I forgot something.

  6. After years,(Decades) of research, We at the Camo Camp Club Co-op have found that you have a better chance at observing Nature’ s Living Critters at a close range when the Birds and others don’ t notice your presence while in Camo, or at least some kind of Earth-Tones. When you wear bright, standoffish, colors which promote the Birds to chirp their territorial environs, the other critters are warned away. Anti Earth-Tone colors are like a Graffiti on the walls of Nature. Green or Brown Eureka Tents, like the Timberlines, compliment Mother Nature. 4 out of 5 Sasquatches recommend the Timberline 6 for the combined head-room and being able to lay down and not have their “Big Foots” hanging out the end of the tent.
