Doing multiple days on Tikaboo is difficult. You have to pack in all your food and water. Three liters a day of water is what you need in the summer.
This doesn't include the water you need for the hike. Nine liters is what I use for a summer hike with just an overnight stay. Throw in your tent,
sleeping bag, and surveillance gear, and the pack gets mighty heavy.
I've done two day stints near the TTR. You just drive to the campsite, park, and then climb a small hill very close to where you park. Food and water
isn't an issue. [I gave someone a jump start at the campsite once, so you do need to use some caution so that you don't do anything that would
strand you there.] The problem is you will be spotted, so they won't be flying anything they don't want you to see.
The TTR looks a lot busier than Groom. There are always cars driving around the TTR and over to Site-4. There is no hill between the viewing spot and
the base, so when cars drive towards the east, it looks like they are lighting you up with a spotlight.
