Another thing that might help, in the spirit of being sneaky and
underhanded, is to find a suitable 'emergency' which onlt the SM can
handle just when it is time to set up camp. If the SM comes back from
handling the 'situation' and finds that everything got done just fine
without him, he may just relax a little next time you set up camp.
