That's a great idea.I have thought of this - pickup a cheapie popup and stake out a bit of an area.
Dogs. Bring your dogs. The can chase stuff, kill stuff, roll in dead stuff / sh_t, go for a swim, bark at strangers, and keep you warm at night.That's a great idea.
Pick up several of those sub-$100 tents and build yourself a little tent city around your perimeter. LED lights are also cheap and effective.
Psychologically, that will also ward off bad guys looking to pick on solo campers.
Good one !We like to spend the first day at a remote area setting up our collection of animal skulls and bones.
Then we use sticks to draw various witchcraft and pagan symbols in the dirt all around the RV and hang old doll heads from trees and bushes.
Lastly we drip red candle wax all around the campfire area.
No one ever camps anywhere near us.
