There has been a lot of discussion on this topic on the Crazy Guy on a Bike forums where some do tours lasting several years.
General consensus is you have to be out more than 24 hours to qualify.
GVBR would be classified as a multi day fully supported tour.
At the other end of the scale there are the unsupported tourers who carry all their requirements with them camping at the end of each day and cooking their own meals and performing their own repairs if anything goes wrong.

But the idea was to leave of an arvo or evening, have a sleepover camping or indoors, then return the next morning - allowing you to do other commitments on the two days involved whether mid-week or weekend.

Well, I can dream can't I?
