"We will be The Famous Three mum!"

I have been discussing with DS about us camping overnight in the summer. He is beside himself and has proclaimed that we (as the title says!) will be like the Famous Five grin
We will go on our bikes (DH has very kindly offered to drop us off!) ride for the day then pitch a small 2 man tent overnight. In the morning we will head for home smile
Is this sensible do you think? DS will be 9, we will have a dog with us (or we will only be the famous Two) and obviously mobile phones and I have agreed that we will stay at a proper site rather than pitching up on a cliff top somewhere.
I see that the bulk of the carrying will be by me but if we took our time I imagined we could do 10 miles on the first day <optimistic soul>
So do I sound mad?
Any tips?
TIA smile

I think it will be amazing!

How is Timmy the Dog travelling? Only dsis3 ping-ed her kneecap when her dog pulled her over while cycling with dog on lead so I do rather have The Fear with doing that.

"Timmy" will run alongside us as I am intending to ride on the coast path (or similar) rather than roads- just need to find somewhere with no stiles first grin
