This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1908 Excerpt: ...and cold wind, minus shelter, a road hugging the stream, or a series of market gardens, and all the rest of it. What, then, are the conditions? First, a bit of decent land, if possible, near a stream or other water, within reasonable distance of a house, in case milk and possibly some other stores are necessary. Selecting a Site.--209.--The selection is often made before examination is possible. We may carry occasionally in our pocket a list of probable Camping sites, but that is an exception rather than a rule. The best method, at any rate, is to select your land first, and then get permission. If you are certain it is a place where permission is not needed, well, there is your land, take possession and take the consequences. That gentlemanly demeanour, politeness, and civility of yours, with an offer of payment, ought to satisfy any reasonable demand. A good deal of the unpleasantness that happens to the campist trespasser arises through a too hasty word, too stiff a back, a nose too high, or else by the utterly ragamuffin and shabby appearance of the comfortable old clothes we wear when Camping. In Ireland, for instance, I have been often half refused because I have been taken for a pedlar, a circus outrider, an exciseman, a bill poster, a political spy, a railway surveyor, a poacher, a wandering shoemaker, a tinker, and even a beggar. This is, of course, by the comparatively poor, untravelled, and innocent people, and I ought to add, in my own interest, of course, evidently ignorant persons, without the power of penetration. A woman, a farmer's wife, frankly said, " I believe you are a gentleman, but don't look like one so much as you speak like it." Even in England and in Scotland, it is sometimes assumed that the camper is not able to stay a...
