I went on an overnight trip to test my camping gear. As always, there were some adventures to have.
Few pics and videos below.

This is a good sign:

I didn't plan to camp here, but couldn't say no to the shelter.

Overall, I was very happy with the bike setup and camping gear.
My personal gear needs an upgrade to be waterproof.
Happy days.

Forgot to mention. I did have a single drop of the bike attempting to jump a log. This is an improvement for me since I stop counting drops at 5 per trip.

Hello, you forgot the video, you mentioned. The pics are great. Nothing beats motorbiking and camping. It used to be my world back in my younger days. Every year for 4 weeks I travelled on my bikes. Every year an other country in Europe. The challenge was the language and all the different currency's. We had no credit cards in those days.

I forgot to mention. Had some fuel anxiety to manage, as well, when the town I was planning to fill up at was shut for summer. I managed my fuel for a couple of hours off road with the 'live' l/km screen on. Ended up at the petrol station with 290km done and potentially another 40 to spare.

Forgot to mention that the pump said 9.7L went in at that point.

Very nice. Looks like a good time!

I had a similar "oh no" fuel moment at the end of November. I had decided to visit a "motorcycle tourist road" (Tail of the Dragon), planning on refueling at the store/inn/gas station at the other end of the stretch of road. Fuel light came on right after I started my run. Okay, I'll be fine. Shop... and gas station, and pretty much the entire area...closed for season and no cellular signal. Uh, oh. A local rider came by and pointed me towards the closest open gas station around 10 miles down the mountain. Got there on fumes. There's a giddy exhilaration with near-misses like that, though I prefer to not test my luck too often, right? ;)

I'm curious about the shelter. Is it meant for camping under? Shelters like that I've encountered around my area are intended for day use only, so I've never given them a second thought.

To be honest, shelters like this are not very common in 'bush' camps in Victoria, Australia. Almost felt like a 'god sent'.
The purpose of these is a shared/common area an dNOT indented for camping under ; - )
