Park so you cannot be blocked in, and can drive away safely and easily.
Hi .. Why? Novice!
Well, call me a numpty, but a simple guide seems to be a good idea.
Like Smaug said, there are already guidelines for safe boating which are just that - guidelines, and not enforceable by law.
Any idiot can take off out to sea in a boat and get themselves into trouble if they are inexperienced.
Similarly, it is obvious without looking back too far in old threads on this forum that lots of peeps new to the freedom of the road ask very basic questions, such as where to dispose of their black waste, and can be unsure of all kinds of things that can be addressed very simply.
Fazerloz please note: ignorance or inexperience is not a crime. If someone has never done any wildcamping, or is totally new to owning a campervan then some basic guidelines have got to be useful.
I'm with maingate. I nominate you as the person responsible for answering all novice questions about the simple technicalities of wildcamping
The Keep Britain Tidy campaign doesn't stop people littering, but it may educate the less aware in the right way to go about things, or at least those who are asking the questions in the first place!
It would also save having to answer the same questions that crop up time after time - not a problem doing this, but at least you can point newbies to the guidelines which saves a bit of faffing about.
Exactly the same as this site already does for the POI. No difference, imo.
Lets face it, whether you like it or not this is a free country (well, for the moment! ) and wildcamping exists. Full stop.
All this nonsense about trying to keeping a low profile on it is a joke. This website is dedicated to it, for gawd's sake!
So, the least you can do is provide peeps with some of the basic guidelines
Because you are now camping rather than just parked up for a rest, fine to do in a campsite but not in the outback as to speak.
What is the purpose of the foot pump, apart from the obvious which if you have ever tried to inflate a van tyre with one you, will need to be younger than I to get to 85 PSI which my rears need.
If you're going to use a compact 12v compressor pump, make sure it's up to your needs. FWIW, I've burned out two taking the van tyres up to the recommended 70+ psi. I now have a T-Max heavy-duty inflator but it's a lot of weight and a lot of faff to use.Yes, I carry a compact 12V compressor pump. Much easier.
