Tidewater KLR Hello Tidewater ADV Riders, I'm loosely organizing a local Pre-Seaon Camping Skills weekend Friday March 7 to Sunday the 9th. Not a riding weekend, I'd like to keep it close and focus on the Moto-camping part. The idea is to break the gear out and give it a shakedown. Share info on gear, trail repairs, and destinations. I'm working on getting a couple of Eagle Scouts to judge best campsite and best chow. I've got a request in to use the Pipsico BSA reservation just outside Surry on the James. If that doesnt work I'm looking for suggestions on other Primitive campgrounds in the area. Maybe First Landing? Chipokes campground is closed until late March. Newport News has a large campground, but it is regional not State and may have long-term residents- dunno. KOA is an option too but a bit pricy at 30+ a night. Chime in if you'd like to join me.
