Turning Bare Ground Into Camping Town

It sure is amazing how you can turn a swath of flat ground into a camping town in just no time at all.

You just need more than one vehicle or tent used as a private domicile, and PRESTO--instant village! Each occupant automatically claims space as 'mine,' to be decorated and defended (just ask the small dog that sometimes lives within).

The area beneath an awning is precious real estate. The bigger the better.

Put a few folks on some camping ground, and you can sit back and observe, at work, the innate human tendency to mark off territory.

Each resident of the camping town will figure out some way to enhance the creature-comfort factor of his carved-out space.

There will be rituals and bonding experiences, such as only life in a camping town provides.

Some temporary camping towns are more than just a parking lot. They're special enough to be named and signed, like a permanent town. They are each A Place, not mere places to go, and as such, invite rendezvous.

Hence...Girl Camp!
