A couple of thoughts:
Where are you camping? If you are within range of phone lines and
power, the problem is rather simple, merely one of getting the computers
(notebook computers are a good choice, easily transportable, but BIG CRT
monitors are best fr group viewing), a place to house it/them, and a
willing ISP (AOL in a pinch).
If NOT within range of landlines, you have fewer options. For power,
you might consider a portable generator (noisy) or car batteries (in a
vehicle, or separate), perhaps recharged from solar cells, etc. For a
connection, the only upoad options are cellular phones or packet HAM
radio, perhaps supplemented by a DirectPC satellite download link.
Sounds expensive, but many of these venders might be eager to have the
opportunity to show their wares and offer use for free.
