Campgrounds are the solid space between civilization and nature. If you take a deeper step towards the wild, the risks get higher, and so do the rewards. It's possible to find a secret campsite miles away from any other human being. You and your group can be totally immersed in the nature and free to do whatever you like; mindfully respecting the environment. In this video I'm sharing my technique to spot a potential secret campground on my computer at home and then going out into the field to find it. If you like to camp and are ready to take your camping game to the next level, this video is for you.
*Warning* There are two sides to isolation. You won't be found, which is great for privacy. However, if you get hurt, you won't be found. You must be confident that you can get yourself and your group out of this spot, even in a worst case scenario (car won't start, someone breaks their leg, etc.) If you are not 100% confident in your ability to handle an emergency, stay in an established campground. Leave no trace. Sweep the site for garbage before you leave.
Fires can easily get out of your control. This would be a terrible thing, possibly resulting in your death and the death of others. I'll address this in a follow up video, but look up the resources you need to do this properly.
Have an amazing adventure!

The road has been my greatest teacher.. challenging stagnant beliefs, disarming prejudices, and developing understanding of others. I hope the content on this blog will bring a sliver of that juju to you.
