Camping - Not Riding

Post  2wheelsagain on Fri 22 Aug 2014, 10:13 am

The co-ordinator of domestic harmony has booked us a weekend awaycamping this weekend.
We were hoping for fine weather and it looks like we'll get it. But I'm not happy!. 
The weather is forecast to be too good for camping and ideal for riding for the first time ever. What should I do?

There is no such thing as too good weather for camping. 
I love camping. Though i have best of both worlds. Me and a few mates often go for camping/dirt biking weekends. The best.

Yea I would pack the car, choose a spot that is friendly to road bikes and take both the car and the bike. My mrs is a gem and understands my "needs", I love camping as much as my bike  cheers

And you made choice C way to tempting in the poll.

67% of respondents don't think for a second that you should do that but couldn't possibly resist clicking it.

Got back from a great weekend last night.
Already raised the subject of returning on a bike and Melody in the car Smile

First order of business was viewing the sunset from Pillar Point.
Wilsons Prom would make a fantastic SBA gathering point. Multi bed lodges are available Wink

That's about the closest point on the mainland to me, only 250kms, but not being of the feathered kind, its three times that distance by road & ferry, luckily I can sleep most of the way  Surprised
