Question: Where are some publicly government owned land free for camping in murfreesboro, TN?
Where can I camp without getting in trouble? I heard if the land is public property than there is no law against you camping there. My question is where are some places in which this applies? Thanks!

Cherokee National Forest. Dispersed camping on federal lands is limited to fourteen days. Study the local regulations on establishing a legal campsite, usually 100 feet off trail, road, or waterway is an adequate distance. Contact your local Forest Service District Ranger Office.
Question: How can I avoid encountering rattlesnakes when I go camping?
I’m going to be camping in Sacramento, California around 4th of July weekend. I’ve heard there are Western Diamondback rattlesnakes in the area where I will be camping at. What can I do to stay safe and avoid getting bit while at the campsite? Any tips will be greatly appreciated… Thank you

Simply look where you’re going.
Rattlesnakes will warn you if you approach.
The thing to watch for/worry about, is that they might well seek warmth at night,
and ‘cuddle up’ while you sleep.
Do zip up your tent and don’t sleep against the tent wall.
Shake out your boots in the morning, (works for scorpions too.).
