Well, I had an opportunity to try out the camping-at-an-airport trick. It didn't work so well.

I was in... um... North Carolina maybe, very near the coast. There was a state park where I was headed to see if I could find a place for my tent. The park was loaded full, so I continued on to find a free spot. I passed a small airport. I went into the entrance, but it sure didn't look like a very good place to set up a tent.

Airports, by design, are very wide open places. They're also quite secure. It seemed to me as I rode toward the main building that wherever I put a tent, someone would surely see me and probably come asking questions.

Can you describe the best way for airport camping? Would they really not mind if someone just parked a motorcycle on the grass nearby and set up a tent?
