    Looking for other bikers that camp & ride(boondocking)

    Just got a TW as I wanted something newer than my Honda Trail, I'm looking for others that do camp and rides for a week or longer at a time. I have a truck camper and like traveling and riding anywhere that's out there. Anybody meet that description here? Always up for a trip, let me know where and when and maybe I'll join you if that's ok. Been riding and camping for many years I'm a old fart though that goes to bed early and get's before the sun. I know the West pretty good so I got plenty of good spots. Like Southern Utah a lot. Names Craig, feel free to PM me with ideas or post it up and maybe I'll see it.

    Sounds like you are a candidate for the annual Moab TW gathering. There will likely be another next spring and one could be organized for this fall if someone promotes the idea enough. Or just propose a good known spot and date here to see what happens. Something like late fall at Alabama Hills, or Toroweep overlooking Lava Falls might shake some of us out of the trees.

    Come Fall and masses go way and it cools some. Eastern Sierrias desert will be calling to me. I am not alone in such desires. Joshua Trees near some great destinations too. Lately been dreaming on parking the RV near some hot springs. Ride all day, soak at night.

    My goal is to position myself to get out of frostbite falls for at least 4 months a year. Ideally it will be in a small motorhome, I might have to look into the truck camper thing. I'm stuck here this winter but next winter I will have to look you up as I will for sure be boon docking around So Cal, AZ, and maybe even southern Utah I love the St George area. Mike

    Early Oct in the eastern Seirras works for me, even last week of Sept. Should be somewhat empty of kids, the leaf people will be coming. Aspens, YES!!!

    I've seen a few pictures of your camper over on the CT forum. How long can you comfortably live in it? Is it fully self contained? Have you made any mods, like solar panels? I have a year or so to get my poop together so I will be doing lots of research. I used to love going up to Convict lake and spending a few days fishing with my Dad. Mike

    Our camping rig. There are a number of members on here with nice truck camper set-ups. SkiPro especially comes to mind.

    I'm good for a couple of weeks in the TC. Skipro use to be over on the CT forum, he does have a nice rig, never met him but have read his post, also over on RV.net Bluff Spring 2016 2016-04-18 010 (640x480).jpg

    "I'm good for a couple of weeks in the TC." -I just love trying to figure out folk's undefined acronyms. Let me guess...TC stands for Tuna Can, right?
