    I live in Livermore, CA. It is a short ride out to the Sierras, Yosemite and surrounding areas. Would enjoy some company while moto camping.

    Thank You

    thank you, I was looking for a dedicated Camping board but did not find it. Do you know how I can move this thread to the Trip Planning Section?
    thank you

    So you posted in the California Regional forum and had two different things you want to talk about. The part about riding and meeting up is fine where it is. The food part is best over in planning in one of the existing threads.

    Hay Dave. Thinking of riding Nor Cal from So Cal soon. Been through Livermore plenty. Thinking of a Sierra or Sequoia trip also. Nobody can go mid week. Interested?

    Yes. I would be. Just need a few days notice to let work know I'll be out. I have family in So Cal ( Eagle Rock ). My wife goes to Disneyland all the time so I might even be able to to toss the GS1200 in to the back of the truck and ride up from SoCal with you. Would you mind the extra stopping to shoot video for YouTube episodes?

    Hi! I'm close to Santa Monica as well. Might be down for a trip up to NorCal, I've started ADV riding there, and after a few camping trips around here in SoCal the dry, rocky terrain and lack of campable lakes to speak of down in SoCal makes me bite the bullet and take a longer trip up there for camping. Would be down to explore Sierra or Sequoia National Forests, too. So far been in Mendocino, Shasta-Trinity, Lassen, Stanislaus forests... as well as Angeles and Los Padres - if one can even call the latter two "forests", that is.

    NorCal has lots of good spots. Would throw in with you guys for some riding and camping up here but I am out for 2 months with broken ribs. Have fun.

    There is tons of camping throughout the High Sierra. All the mountain passes have plenty of dispersed camping and I am beginning to take advantage of some of these opportunities. Wouldn't mind having someone join me on a occassion. Let's Ride.

    Before end of year this year I would like to do two short trips. One is Yusal Rd, camp on the beach and make more of a loop through the lost coast. the other is a 1 nighter, maybe 2 in Mendocino national forest riding a loop route I created.
