    Pines campground in the GW national forest. Think this is Va but might be W Va Three days of riding in the rain. Pleased to find the Wally world tent mentioned in a previous post is weather- worthy. Paved road (617?) all the way to the campground, so the Pacific Coast was happy.

    I like living the life of a mobile hobo. I've just bought this BSA, the seller suggested I freight the bike home, it's 50 years old he said. What, and miss out on a 3 day ride ! Camping on the side of the road for free is a bonus.
    1st night, just south of Casino NSW.

    2nd night at a rest area north of Dubbo, this spot had a couple of modern conveniences, a table and toilet.

    3rd night between Wodonga and Yackandanda, I found this spot in the moonlight, no thanks to the headlight, it's like a candle in the wind.
    UPDATE: I've just ordered a LED headlight globe.

    Did you actually sleep in that tent-shaped pile of sticks? Could the contrast be any greater from NY NY?

    I have that little Wally World tent...easiest setup of anything I ever owned. I'd hate to be stuck in it all day in the rain though.

    My concern is not being able to sit up in it, but I use the blue fly, too. :deal

    Willis Campground on The Barry Way. Pretty warm and dusty, but the river was just behind the scrub.

    Just back from a week trip up to Lassen NP. Carried my tent but never pulled it out. Hammock set up kept me warm even in the low 30's most nights. These are a couple of wild camps.

    Near Mammoth, CA.

    Antelope Lake. This is a small inlet. There is no develepment on the lake and the campsites were all closed for the winter. The nearest person was probably at least 15 miles in any direction.
