Yo Punks,

So what's the deal with pitching my tent in parks in Europe? Will I be hassled by the man? The reason I ask is because I'm.....ahem.....cheap! So therefore more time spent in the tent = more beer money. The logic is clear but not sure if it will play out as I hope.

Thanks for your input

So do I just ask around to find out? Or perhaps the tourism office could tell me?

Thanks

Where around Europe are you looking to go more specifically?

and make sure you have a tent you can pitch
a) in the dark
B) while drunk
c) in the rain
or any combination there of, it will make life a lot more pleasent for you in the long run.

i tend to try to get off the beaten path when picthing my tent, but it has been mostly luck up until this point

Sudz,

I will be trekking all over for 3 months. Basically as far as my legs and my wallet can take me.

I also plan on some time in Eastern Europe.
