Howdy

I'd like to see a camping sub forum. There are lots of camping web sites but here we can discuss the particular problems and solutions of camping off a bike. I think a lot of guys use the DR this way.

Topics I could see:

Bike friendly camping, hunting and fishing gear.
Packing for trips, making the most of your space.
New products that members find.
Field reports on how a piece of camp gear worked out.
Home brew camping gear and hacks.
Bargains and sales that we stumble across.
Good places to camp that members discover.
Tips and Tricks
And many more!

I know we have Gear Head, but that seems to mostly revolve around riding gear. Adventure Addicts seems more about trip and ride reports. I thought it might be nice to have all camping and camp gear related info and questions in a dedicated Sub Forum under Other Topics.

Thanks

Steve

Thanks for the suggestion Steve! :good: I agree, a camping forum would be a good addition and is in keeping with our desire to categorize our content for ease of reference. My initial thought would be to place such a forum in our main trail section like the pre-96 and motard forums. This request may also have me look at some changes in order of logic for our sub forums. Give us some time to ponder this further. :good:

As always further comments, suggestions, thoughts from other members is welcome and appreciated. :s_yes

A Moto-Camping sub-forum sounds like a great idea to me. I just got back from a 3-day weekend riding and camping on the blue ridge trail in VA. I never take enough pictures for a ride report, but I like hearing what works and doesn't work for other people.

Ok thanks Rob.

RamMan, me too.

I would especially like to hear ideas from our Australian friends. I've seen pictures of setups and gear they use that is likely traditional to them that I don't see other people using.

This can also be a good place to ask camping gear questions if taking a trip to another region.

For example, we live East Coast so we know what critters to watch out for and what size sleeping bag for what time of year, but if going somewhere with different terrain and climate it'd be nice to get the inside word from the guys local to that area.

Cool idea. I really haven't been much of a camper until recently. I'd find a separate board useful.
