Camp Déjà View

Camp Déjà View at dusk before raising the tarp

Camping solo, I have to pace myself 
in order to come back in one piece
and unload safely the gear until next year.

Several tables and chairs of different hight are 
key components of the system,
for keeping non-structural equipment off the ground in order 
to avoid dust accumulation and leave the space uncluttered 
for safe circulation inside and around, day and night.

Prior to the above image, the tables and cot are used to 
sort out the different sized rebars (53), poles (22) and
guylines (27), because doing it on the ground 
is a real back-breaker, a waste of energy 
and a source of mistake or accident.

Orange rebar caps are always on, no need to explain.

This year because of windy conditions, for 4 days in a row
my camp was in that state, just waiting for a lull in the weather 
to rise up the white tarp without ballooning.
At night the cot was positioned against the van windbreaker. 

My Camp Déjà View

The lull arrived, it took me 45 minutes to have everything taught and straight,
intentionally I don't add anymore the walls made of stretch fabric,
the camp is transparent few people notice it 
and I enjoy a spectacular scenery.
At night the cot is pushed back against the van, at least I have a roof.

Thanks Charlie for the comment I will update the caption. I could not believe it when I saw this guy drinking a beer on top of the ball, going back and forth as if on roller skates, he made my evening.
