If you can't join your Amateur Radio Club for this year's ARRL Field Day (23-24 June 2018), why not go solo and set up camping-based single station for the event. In this video "Outdoors On The Air" mounted a small, one-man Field Day station in his back yard for the 2014 event.  He did rather well, making 135 contacts on 40, 20, and 15 meters with a few end-fed wire antennas. There are special categories for single-operator stations, including mobile, battery-powered, or commercially powered arrangements.  Be sure to bring plenty of coffee and snacks--it will be a long, intense night.
