It was 2010. We were excited, and we had a successful, enjoyable trip. Now, three years later, mu wife and I are at mid-March, waiting for the weather to change so we can make up for our lapse of three years.
This trip is chronicled on an online site, Crazy Guy on a Bike, that is dedicated to bicycle tours--from day trips to around-the-world odysseys. Our little excursion was for three days with two nights in a tent. Here is the link for the site and the journal narrative:
My wife and I learned a lot from the trip, in addition to having fun. The Crazy Guy on a Bike website is a great source for learning from the experience of others. (That way, you don't have to learn everything the hard way!)
Two overnight bike trip journals were those of Alexandra Greene and of Jackie Sindrich, both bike camping in New York.

I've enjoyed reading journals of all lengths of trips on Crazy Guy on a Bike, from multi-year around-the-world trips to day biking. However, the first-time journals are interesting because as a novice I can learn from others' experiences. For instance, both of the above journals mention to bring bug spray!
