Looking up into the Cascade mountains from my back porch the night before I left for a motorbike camping trip, it still looked a little “wintery” up there… But the next couple of days promised to be sunny and warmer, so I was heading off on an S24O.
One of my goals for 2015 is to go camping at least once a month. So far, we’re right on track. Even if it is just a Sub -24 hour- Overnight, or S24O, it’s nice to just get outside and enjoy the night sky away from the city lights.
Spending the night by a crackling campfire is a great way to keep the rest of the world in perspective.
Another aspect for this trip was to do a gear check for a much longer motorbike camping trip I’m taking later this summer with my pal Dan. We’re going to continue our Washington Backcountry Discovery Route, north from Cashmere WA (where we were turned away by forest fires last year) to the Canadian border.
But more about that in a later episode of the Adventure Journal.
Here is a little movie I made of my trip:
That’s it for now. Thanks for following along.
