How to choose a campsite?
I will be the first to admit that a lot has been written about this topic. Things like flat ground, proximity to water and firewood, avoiding areas where wildlife activity is evident certainly all do stand out as being obvious. Sometimes though, you don’t have too much of a choice and have to improvise, such as when I was stranded for the night on Vargas Island. My only advice is to plan but be open minded and embrace whatever the area or terrain has to offer. A certain amount of creativity goes a long way too. Below are images from some of my campsites over the last 8 years.
