KLR650 Camping Trip

I suppose since I write about bug vehicles and bug out locations, I could call a recent motorcycle trip to North Carolina and Tennessee work – or at least research.  But truth is that a short getaway trip to the mountains, camping off my KLR650 was really more of a great way to unwind after a few long weeks of  finishing up the revisions and final details of my latest book – the novel that will be released in July.

I’ve written about the Kawasaki KLR650 here before, and I’m sure many readers have either owned one or know somebody that does.  It’s not a motorcycle that excels at any one thing, but rather one that does everything well enough.  For this trip, that meant everything from surviving the truck traffic on the interstate at 75 mph, to negotiating twisty pavement in the mountains, such as the infamous “Tail of the Dragon” stretch of North Carolina’s Highway 129.  But most importantly, it meant the freedom to explore off-road on gravel forest service roads and beyond.

I went alone on this ride so I wouldn’t have to do much scheduling or planning, and besides,  I needed time to myself anyway.  Mainly, I wanted to revisit some of my favorite areas in the regions, such as the Joyce-Kilmer and Citico Creek wilderness areas, where I’ve embarked upon many a solo backpacking trip in times past.  Hiking this time was limited, but with the KLR I was able to get to some nice, secluded campsite with the bike and all my gear, some of them places few four-wheeled vehicles could reach.

As anyone who’s visited this area knows, the driving (and especially motorcycle riding) is spectacular.  Going in the off-season and during the week makes it easy to avoid the crowds.  One of the most scenic roads is the Cherohala Skyway, which runs through some of the wildest areas of the southern Appalachians, from  Tellico Plains, TN to Robbinsville, NC.

This is a view out into the Citico Creek Wilderness Area, which is described on p. 158 of my book: Bug Out: The Complete Plan for Escaping a Catastrophic Disaster Before It’s Too Late.  A black bear encounter I had one dark night deep in the middle of this wilderness reminds me to choose campsites carefully and take all the precautions to keep a clean camp when in these mountains.  This a place where you can seriously disappear if you have a need to, especially if you don’t mind bushwhacking into the rhododendron thickets in the deep ravines along the drainages.

But as nice as the paved mountain roads like the Cherohala Skyway are, the KLR really comes into its own and proves its worth on the endless miles of gravel forest service roads that lead off the beaten path.

Exploring them leads to all kinds of great places, like this fantastic stream.  One thing these mountains are not short of is water, so carrying a lot of it is not necessary as long as you have a means to purify it.

It’s hard to leave a place like this and ride back home, but after this little escape I’m now planning a longer motorcycle trek out West to some of my favorite hang-outs there, like New Mexico’s Gila National Forest.  I have no doubt that the trusty KLR will get me there and back.

How to Build a Fire for Camping

Article by Jonsky Sicuna

The ability to build a fire is is essential because it can still be an invaluable source of heat and a method of signaling. It can also be used to cook in case something goes wrong with your camping stove or you forgot to bring one (which shouldn’t be the case if you use a camping checklist.) You have to be careful though because not every place allows the building of fires.

To Build a Fire..

You need plenty of dry material like tinder, dead pine leaves, dry leaves, thick sticks or small branches. Use anything you can find that is dry. You also need to collect a lot of wood (especially if you plan to use the fire for a long time) and organize it according to size. You can look for dry wood inside of hollow tree stumps or close to the trunks of trees. Whittle away wet bark to find dry wood which can be shaved into tinder. Get as much tinder as possible.

Use an existing fire ring if you find one. If not, make a fire ring by first clearing up the ground of flammable debris or if you build a fire on a grassy area use your camping knife to cut out turf about a foot in diameter and set it aside to replace later when you’re finished with the fire. Try to find an area that is protected from the wind and surround the fire area with a ring of stones.

Next you place a pile of tinder (or any type of fire starter like paper, petroleum jelly, etc) in the center of the fire ring.

Then build a small teepee using small sticks about the size of a pencil. Start with a sticks that balance easily against each other (like a forked stick) to provide a stable frame for which other sticks can lean on.

If any of the sticks are slightly wet, it will be dried by the heat from the burning tinder before they catch fire. Place three medium sized stones around the outside of the stone which can be used to support your cooking pot. Don’t use stones collected from a river bed as they may have absorbed water which could cause the stones to explode when heated.

Sprinkle some more tinder or other flammable material like pieces of paper or pine needle on the outside to the teepee. Use pine pitch also if it is available as it will make a really good fire starter. Gradually add more sticks to the teepee and use larger sticks this time but ideally the sticks should not be bigger than your thumb. Remember to leave a space at one side so you can reach the tinder to light or add more if necessary.

Once this is all done you can reach into the teepee and light up the tinder. As the fire builds up, you can help by blowing into it. Add small pieces of twigs and sticks one piece at a time. You can add bigger sticks when the fire gets big enough. When the teepee has collapsed you can place the pot on the stones and start cooking.
