I enjoy bike camping, but usually head out of state to do it. The plan was to camp near Hot Springs, AR this year, but that trip didn't work out as planned. Try packing for a 2 week trip on the bike and you'll find out just how much stuff you don't really need.

Looks like you guys had fun.

oH MAAAAAN, I want to go to Hot Springs. Just to get in a hot spring, though.
I cant ride for That long, Ill die of vibration and boredom. By the time I reach AR, Ill be ready to go home, not ride more..where we're all SUPPOSE to ride.

One guy said he'll just turn his boxers inside out. Noooo!!!!!
The bike camping was more enjoyable bc it was new, different, and a challenge.

My zx6r cant hold the saddle bag like the zzr could. Dammit
Thatll cause a problem in the future

My camping experiences require WAY more beer. Looks like a good time though.

Looks like fun. I usually go on a 1-3 days canoe/kayaking trip along the trinity river a few times a year.

We put in up stream and have someone pick us up at the next bridge downstream. It is possible to do it all in one day, but by stopping along the way and camping it makes it more laid back. a third day allows for basically around and fishing,e ct. while the river carries you.
We are planning to do one here in october.

Oh the beer was there. They cleared about...I dunno 100 cans in 2 nights, 3 people.
I had a 1.75 bottle of rum to myself and Jocey was propelled by wine the entire trip. From 9a till....I dont know, 3a.
AlleyKat took a pic of all his cans. He inhaled about 20 the 2nd night. Gah leeeee.

So you pack your camping stuff, food, and fishing pole in the canoe?? Thats impressive if so.
Thats probably primitive camping youre doing.
I...need running toilets and showerrrrrrrs.
They had kayaks for rent but I was scared of spiders IN the boat so I decided not to.

Yeah it's definitely not campground camping, although I enjoy that as well as the "primitive" camping as you put it. The canoe trip is always more of a "guy thing" Everything gets packed into the canoe's and we split everyone's bags up based on how well they fit and the weight. So, one guy may have the cooler full over alcohol and cokes, while another guy has all the water and another guy might have all the food. We split the clothes, tents and sleeping stuff up the same way.

We usually skimp on the food because we generally catch a lot of fish. It's not uncommon for us to go the whole three day trip without seeing any other people the whole time. It's pretty relaxing. I'd put up some pics, but I'm not sure where they're at.

I've never been on a bike camping trip before, but it looks like a whole other adventure of it's own kind.

OLA? Not familiar with that.

I said we'd stay in Hot Springs, but we were actually going to be camping in or near Ouachita National Forest (just West of Hot Springs, AR) and then riding the roads North of there.

We had been planning a long weekend: leave Thursday after work, ride Fri, Sat, Sun, head home Monday.

Great pics... I popped up my tent a couple of months ago and sorted out all my camping gear for when it cools off. My son is old enough for him to start enjoying the out doors in a different way. Can't wait to introduce him to it.
