*** Random ideas & notes


Campground location is not decided yet.

Options:
    * repeat land of friend from S4-A (cool, have to ask) --> for the moment we are there
    * Wild camping (interesting)
    * Renting actual rent, possibly negotiating rent-to-buy (conceptual best)


Buying a car?

Have some budget for this.
Pro:
    * easily movable storage space!
    * transport of things and people
    * people rent it anyway (we've spent ~1-2k on rentals)
    * distances are doable but not for all every day (Puerto del Carmen = 40km one way)
Contra:
    * "Lanzarote is good for cycling also as it is fairly flat."


Portable Water Filter System

at least to ask them what kind of components are used
