Road trip cum camping

Postby Alexandoy » Tue Apr 25, 2017 11:32 am

I was once invited by a friend for a road trip on a motorcycle - I would be riding in tandem with him. There were more than 20 riders with him on that long road trip to the northern province. But the plan is to make a stopover every 4 hours of travel to rest and spend the night. Not in a hotel though but in any open space that can pitch a tent. I liked the idea but I didn't feel comfortable riding on a motorcycle for that long period. For sure, my butt will be painful with the long ride.

That sounds exciting but tiring too. I can't imagine sitting without a back support for that long. Although four hourly breaks and rest are okay but it is not really practical to pitch tents every fourth hourly I guess you had meant tents for just sleeping.

I think great friends can make the trip awesome despite all the hardship. I would definitely join such a fun trip. Although I know of someone who had similar trip and had a very bad sunstroke.

When you having the nicest of time on a motor cycle just having a road trip you wouldn't even remember you've been on the ride without a back support. The excitement of the moment has a way of keeping you energetic not feeling tired through the moments. I haven't had a trip of this nature turned into a camping experience, I can imagine it will be another sweet form of a camp too.
