In my Scouting days we would sometimes set up checkpoints on night events. We would put up a frame tent and set up a desk. On the desk would always be a portable typewriter (although we didn't need it), framed photos of loved ones and a fake plant in a pot.
We'd always have CB radio and a massive aerial even if no one else was using it.
There was always hot coffee and loads of cake obviously visible, though we never offered coffee or cake to the Scouts. The Scouts would arrive at the checkpoint eyes blinking in our bright gas lamps, listening to the hiss of gas lamps and stoves and the crackle of the radio in the background, smelling the coffee and cake. The objective was to show the Scouts that we the leaders were having much more fun than them.
I once fell asleep on a comfortable pile of rubble at a checkpoint when I woke up I found there was a cat asleep on my chest. I have no idea where it came from.

Enjoy the liveliness of the syntax.
