Took the bike for a little overnighter from Rochester, NY to the Carlton Hill Multiple Use Are (state land about an hour southwest of Rochester). Stayed off the highways, had nice weather, and camping was great. I'm riding a Yamaha XT225, so needless to say I try to pack light.
All packed up:
First stop, gas (used just over a gallon for the whole trip!)
Turns out I was camping just a couple miles from the Rolling Hills Asylum (as featured on a few of those ghost hunters shows.) Described as "one of the most haunted places in America," a true 19th century asylum whose residents were in fact called "inmates." So I decided to stop by and see if any ghosts were around. Nope all was quiet.
Loc: Colorado Front Range, US
Nice! Wish I could see the missing pics but no matter. I've been thinking of doing a similar trip sometime soon. The challenge is planning a route that is interesting without being exposed to high-speed auto/truck traffic.
