Check out the main page for details.
Where do we stay? How is the decision made where to stay?
We primarily stay at local high schools. Camping inside on a gym or cafeteria floor and outside in a designated grass area. When a high school is not available we look to small colleges, YMCAs, and occasionally a middle school. Where ever we stay the decision is fairly simple, does it meet our needs. Showers, Camping, etc... Have a suggestion? Want to know more?
