    Are you in Mark?

    I'm leaving here on 3/19. Going to Frankfort, KY to visit the Woodford and Buffalo Trace distillery.

    Then to Tellico Plains.

    There are not many options for non camping.

    Besides you miss half the fun if have to get on your bike and ride to a motel after supper.

    They've come a long way in camping gear since you were in scouts. The new mats are as comfortable as my bed.

    I may be catching up, but if I ever pull ahead, that is bad news for you!

    I will think on the motocamping thing... Lots more gear to buy and haul. Set up and tear down...

    :deal

    I don't know about that, the 3 bedroon, 2 bath summer house, we got to use last weekend for free in the Smokey's was pretty sweet, with a great view of Grandfather Mtn. I will take that over a tent anytime, especially in December:deal

    Wall mart tent, Sleeping Bag and a NICE pad under the sleeping bag. All that is needed. I guess I don't really camp, I just sleep in a tent.

    Nothing like getting up in the morning, packing up and going to find a cup of hot coffee on the bike.

    Anytime your outdoors your camping, you don't even need a tent sometimes.

    On the coffee subject. What about a stainless cup with the shape of the exhaust header on one side and a neoprene sheath and strap to insulate and hold it in place. Hot water for the french press while you warm the bike up.
