I have been wondering how many of you have heard of this concept? It is what the people at Rivendell call "Sub 24 hours Overnight" rides. It is for when you want to get in a "camping trip" but don't have time to go somewhere for a week. You ride out to somewhere, camp overnight and come back the next morning. I am not an experienced (at least not RECENTLY) camper. and one of the reasons I wanted to get an X is for the possibility of being able to take a few S24O trips. My wife of 32 years dislikes camping intensely, and I can't blame her, she never did any of it as a child. I was part of a fanatic camping family and love it! So at 53 (nearly 54!) I am planning to try a few overnight rides to see how it goes. I am not INEXPERIENCED, and I have a tent, sleeping bags etc. But nothing ultralight! (no, I am not going to buy a new one! I can't see spending $300 on an ultralight tent I use once a year!) my currrent "camping status" is that I get out once a year or so, maybe less. But I have never done a bike camping trip except supported.
