    A lot of these photos appear to show “camping” not stealth camping.

    Camping off the bike is definitely nice, but it ain’t stealth camping.

    Just sayin’...

    True, though the title wasnt strictly stealth, but dispersed as well. The first post stated "Let's see pictures of motorcycle camping out in the wild NOT on an established campground!"

    I spent about 5 or 6 years living out under the stars much of the time, mainly on national Forest lands. I wasnt "stealth" camping in the sense of being camo-ed, but tended to camp in places that most people wouldnt stumble upon them, or that werent obvious from main dirt roads. Not sure if theres necessarily a hard definition of stealth camping, but discrete and privacy were things I valued in a camp spot.

    Oh, I know.

    And I was just pointing out that most of the photos are “camping” photos.

    I didn’t title the post, “Lets see your stealth camping pics (wild camping, dispersed camping, etc.)” someone else did.

    Ok so I'm a total Noob to Stealth Camping. I have done a lot of backpacking but never considered that stealth camping as there is no one out there to see you.

    Given you have had a very strict opinion of what Stealth Camping must be. Which you have vehemently stated on multiple forums. Would you mind clarifying this issue in detail?

    A.) I'm new to this and would love a more standardized explanation of the way it is supposed to work, i.e. what is major difference in your mind from dispersed camping?
    B.) Does it have to happen on non public land to be stealth? Or like is it just totally about not being seen but can be in any national forest, BLM, DWP? Because technically if you are on much public land and camping, that is dispersed camping because the park knows there are people camping randomly ever. So even though no one knows you are there physically. It doesn't matter because there is no gray area on camping. It's allowed. So in a way, the whole place is one big campground with designated non camping areas. Maybe i'm over complicating this....wouldn't be the first time.

    Anyways, would love your thoughts. Thanks!

    You surely do! :thumb
    Keep the blue for a ground cover.
    Or get one that is dark brown on one side.
    Bright colors make a camp really jump out of nature.
    We want to blend in and be invisible.
    Then no one minds
