Thanks to this great thread I've decided where my next moto-camp will be. Stay tuned.
Roughing it at Forest City Riders M/C grounds in Rockford Illinois all by ourselves last summer.
Same place, early spring of last year.
Cartwright, Labrador. June 2017. The grassy spot across from the grocery store. Not really stealth though - I asked the lady at the grocery store if I could camp there. I used the pay phone in the store to call my wife to tell her I was off the bike for the day and still alive.
Camping on The WABDR in Sept.2018
I spent about 5-6 years nomadding around N Az on my bike and pickup, sleeping out around 10 months/year for that time. My bike was always packed, I never knew for sure where or when id sleep or camp. I used a 10x12 canvas tarp mostly. if the weather was nice it was a ground cloth, if not sure, id pull some of it off the side and cover myself if it started raining in the middle of the nigth. Sometimes Id set it up as a lean-to, sometimes id put the tarp edge under the wheels of the bike, pull it over the bike and stake or rock it out to form a tent over me and the bike. sadly, I dont seem to have any pictures of the actual camps that I can find, just a few bike pics loaded.
I think ive only stayed at developed campgrounds a couple dozen times over my life.
Somewhere near Moab UT, had to do some good off-roading on the RT to get to it. It is amazing how few trees there are there.
That´s proper stealth camping.
You're missing the point of this thread...
I don't even know what dispersed camping is
Dispersed means you made your own camp as opposed to using a dedicated camp site. Typically it refers to backpacking, but in this case its bike camping
I think theyre saying you missed the point because you didnt set up camp with you bike
I would think this thread is about camping in a way no one see you where you are with your bike.
A big camping bus is not so stealthy.
I’ve found cemeteries make good places to stop for the night. The other campers are incredibly quiet:
First night of our 10 days through Colorado and the Rockies. This was right after starting the single track ascent north of Chama, NM. Our bigger bikes couldn't make it (or it was just we couldn't make it) so we decided to call it a night. Not exactly 'stealth' camping, but definitely off the beaten path. It was all on an incline and I remember waking up several times having slid down into the corner of my tent. Couldn't of asked for a better way to start our adventure
Somewhere in Va on the MABDR, not a soul around...
4/2019 - Oachita NF in Oklahoma
Found this place about 6 years ago. It's outside a little place called Billy Creek. Very quiet! It's my "go to" for deloading.
My first trip with my 650 Vstrom.
I'm terrible at remembering to park my bike next to my camping stuff, but here's some sites from when my best friend and I went camping together this last winter.
This ones my fave..
A ways away and somewhere in the Pacific Northwest.
