I'm kicking around the idea of tent camping next month at VIR. Will mostly depend on whether or not the wife tags along or not. Any experiences or advice? This will be my first time running with NASA MA, I've been running with NASA SE. Signed off in HPDE 3 but will be signing up in HPDE 2 since I've never been to VIR. I look forward to meeting everyone.

Plenty of places to tent camp in the grass/shade although it could get hot. They have good bathrooms/showers which helps and will encourage you to seek out AC buildings if you just need to cool off. I have limited experience with NASA SE but I believe it is similar to NASA MA.....great group of people!

I've tent-camped many times at VIR. Used to just set up the tent on the open trailer. It gets really damn hot on the black paved paddock now. As was mentioned earlier, probably a good idea to find a grassy spot in the shade for your tent. Bring a fan - August at VIR can be brutal.
