Campsite Layout

Rough plan for the campsite. If we fit, I'd like to arrange us in two rows again, with the canvas tents on the outside (towards Mong/Northside and Marquee) and the dome tents behind (towards the road and forest). While there will be a path down the middle, primary access to tents is from the outside of the campsite. The sunshade is at the Northside end, nearest the Mong.
