Janus Halcyon Motorcycle Winter Camping

Richard and Janus’s friend Jesse set off on a winter camping trip on a couple of Halcyons but woke up with a surprise the next morning.

All right hello folks uh it’s a getting a little late in the afternoon here but we are getting ready to take a halcyon 450 with jesse hello and a 250 actually number 68 uh all loaded up out on a winter camping extravaganza so uh we’re loading up uh we’re gonna try and not freeze our butts off uh and we are headed where are we headed jesse uh about 20 minutes

South of here we’ve got a friend with some property along the river just gonna have a fire eat some food and yeah try not to freeze sounds good all right so decided the first thing we’re going to do is get warm by letting this fire and then we’ll finish unloading the bikes here and get our tent set up and start getting some food cooking but first this is

A beautiful little campsite down here we are footsteps from the river over here the elkhart river which uh we’re about five miles upstream of goshen and uh this is a great spot i come up here with uh jesse here and sometimes we bring the dogs we can go swimming let the dogs go in the water oh it’s gorgeous though very peaceful there you go you’re going to

Burn your finger there my hands are cold there you go that’s going well that was better than i expected i don’t think we’re gonna have to do anything else no i think it’s uh gonna be a bonfire in like 15 minutes all right all right so which of this soft cushy ground shall i make well we got some hobo dinners down in the coals finally finally got enough

Calls to rake some out for these hobo dinners what you got in the uh how about dinners jesse oh my on a light bed of cabbage we have some russet potatoes uh some celery some oregano uh let’s see what else some sausage uh how else i put onions garlic peppers sounds lovely oh yes no we’ll be eating like things they’re gonna sit there for a while and we might have

To change the coals out but fire is rolling and go a wine opened and living the life down here what do you think the temperature is uh one sign said 29 one sun said 27 on the way here under freezing so probably probably looking at like 23 22 and dropping nicely oh it doesn’t actually feel that cold out by the fire the real test is going to be when we get into

Sleeping bags and uh have to actually settle down yeah right they’re out here hugging the engines yeah right running the bikes well i mean we do have this we got way more fireworks so getting set up here got a thermarest ground pad wool blanket sleeping bag and a polar fleece sleeping bag liner and we’ll see we’ll see how that does nice frozen hard ground
