Where/how often do you camp?
I'm trying to put a budget together for our trip next year, but one of the things that I find quite difficult is to estimate is the % time we will spend camping whether this is free camping in the bush somewhere or in designated camping areas compared to staying in 'normal' budget accomodation. FYI, we will be travelling in a 4x4 which we'll be using to sleep in most of the time. We want to try and limit staying in hostel/hotels etc, except for the odd one or two in bigger cities, as much as we can to make our money last a bit longer.
This relates to Russia (incl eastern), Mongolia and most of the Stans. (We will also be travelling through Africa, but I will ask this question again in the Africa section - sorry to duplicate!!)
I was thinking that out of a possible 6 months from Vladivostok to London about 3-4 months can be spent camping...?!?!
Speaking in very general terms, has anybody had problems when free camping with authorities or maybe crime related?
Thanks for your feedback in advance!!!!
