Camping on a cross country ride?
I am about to embark on a cross country ride from Asheville, NC to Black Rock City, Nevada. Yes I have a specific destination and time table but I hope to enjoy the a few days of riding out west on both sides of my trip. As everybody (well, most people anyways) I am working on a budget and trying to stretch it out as much as possible. My biggest concern is finding a safe place to crash at night. Hotels are expensive, and puts my bike a good distance from me, meaning I have to load and unload everything each night and day. Motels could work, but camping would be ideal.
Is it still possible to camp places like they did in easy rider, or is that a dream long forgotten? Somebody mentioned walmarts, but I think that is only for RVs, not tents. Any advice?
PS: My plan is to document an Iron Butt ride to get out west. If that helps at all.
