Maybe this is easier to read: quote Mr Camper:
Many years ago I was heading from Topeka to Florida and looked for a place to tent camp for the night. Just north of Nashville I stopped for fuel and asked if the guy knew someplace I could stop for the night, and not a big campground. He told me about a guy with some acres who would accommodate me. He provided directions and when I met the guy he offered me the use of his field and I was welcome to fish in his well-stocked pond. He wanted two good catfish. I caught four and gave him two and I had a quiet and peaceful night. I made a couple of extra stops in Georgia to see families of USAF buddies and while they offered me a room with a bed, I declined and they suggested a couple of places, one near Macon and the other just before the Florida line, near Valdosta. For the next few years I tent camped that way. Stopping and asking worked for me. A spot for the night was free with no strings. Only one other person asked for a favor. Once I set up I ran into town and picked up some supplies for them and that was it. Best way to see the USA.
