Biking is mustachian. Camping is mustachian. Put them together and you get a heck of a fun weekend.
On Friday after work, I loaded up the trailer is some bare necessities and my 2.5 year old son, and we rode 2 hours to a county park to go camping. Upon arrival, we set up the tent and had our special snacks (juice and peanut butter cracks for him, an apple and an IPA for me). The next morning, we broke camp early, rode over to a near by railroad museum to see the trains (they weren't open yet so we couldn't go in the cars), and were back home in time for a mid-morning birthday party.
- This was a last minute idea. In the future, to speed up departure, I'll pack up the night before.
- Eating a quick dinner at home before we left meant we didn't have to bring food or cooking equipment for dinner. We packed sandwiches for a cold breakfast.
- My cat food can alcohol stove
worked great for heating up coffee in the morning. I made this stove last year, but this was the first time I got around to using it.
- My two hours of cycling got me to a park right next to an interstate. Great. Next time, I'll go a little further to get away from the all night traffic.
