Now that I have an awesome motorhome (which is providing lots of learning opportunities for caulking, bypassing water heaters, and using electricty to dry stuff out) I can base camp in random places. I mean, after living in a tent for months on end, even if the home doesn't have water or sewer hook ups, its way better than a tent.
Solid roofs, or semi solid, go a long way. This week I've been testing a lot of nearby vegetation for flavor. Lots of greenery here on the mountain, most still tender in May.
