    First camping trip

    I just returned yesterday from my first camping trip with my TW.

    All went well.

    I cheated a little, I had brought up our popup camper the week before.

    I event found a sand pit to play around, I went slow because it was my first time ever in sand and I still have the deathwing. I didn't fell but I hurt my shin on a footpeg ouch!

    Here are some pictures:

    I also visited an abandoned Norad radar station:

    And I had a surprise when coming home, my Jimbo shield arrived while I was away!

    Fun fact: I averaged between 70 and 78 mpg for this trip. My TW has 14/47 gearing.

    Great that you can pull the popup with the TW. En tout cas, guess a full size camp trailer would have too much wind resistance on the highway?

    Don't see a hitch on the TW, Fred.
    Expect it was towed with a 4 wheeler.

    Really beautifully located campsite. And I'm a big fan of abandoned urban/rural architecture too.
    Looks like a great time. Enjoy.

    That does look like an idyllic get away. Was teasing about the trailer of course. Very pretty spot.

    I think there is a video on this site of a TW pulling a boat on a trailer.
