Working with a japanese friend now on this.If the 21st is the only weekend but Baird's not available till the 4th, then sounds like it would be difficult to do this as a group.
Sorry. Didn't see your Thursday post about the 21 March option till just now. Either option would work for me. If you have the reservations for the 4th but can't cancel them, then we can go ahead with that, or if you can cancel them and we camp on the 21st, that works too. Just let me know.April 4 is a go.
Love how a ton on money is spent on these places then absolutely nothing on maintenance, cleaning, and basic weed whacking. Good little camping spot but wonder how many cars come through there.
There are definitely a few seldom used mountain roads that have random clearings. I’ll occasionally see families having picnics and stuff.Since I've bough all of the gear (I still have no idea) I think these next few weeks of time off with the coronavirus work from home/time off will be a good chance to go bike packing for me and get out of the house/avoid crowds.
Love the idea of Okutama. Currently checking for guerrilla camping spots on google maps & street view. I reckon I'd take some food with me from a convenience store to save the hassle of cooking, and the weight of cooking gear. I've got the tent, sleeping bag & bike packing bags so about time I put them to use.
