Holy Moly Dusty,,,,,,,,,, thats really impressive. But with all that gear, how does one decide witch stove,tent, bag, etc, etc, etc, to take with them.

I'm just teasing ofcourse.

Each item designed for the activity. I have to keep it simple for myself.

The things I liked,,,,I\'ve tried em twice!

It's called progress Mel. We didn't come out of the stone age because we ran out of stones and were forced to move on.... We progressed. If God had wanted us to sleep on the ground he would have made it softer, warmer, dryer and would never have let bugs use it as their homes and larger animals as their toilets. :c heesygrin:



In order to have "The great outdoors" we need an indoors to compare it too.

All kidding aside. I have read this entire thread and the way Dusty, CJ and all you other hard core campers have come up with to be able to camp while on a bike are just amazing. And you dedication to camping is very impressive. I wish I wasn't such a woose about sleeping out doors, as for looking at the pictures it must be great to wake up to some of the scenery. Not to mention the buckets of money you save over motels. Keep up the good work.

69yrs old backpacked all my life. Here goes, I lay a tarp down then my pad then my bag, if it rains or snows I just pull the other half of the tarp over , never wet never cold.
I have done a 8k like this planning for my 70th next year a 12k four corner.I stop anywhere if you leave a freeway on the frontage road there will always be a spot.Headlights ,butane lighters etc all great things, ijust like to be on my bke although I have a trialer, so I pack light. Have great times

Born 1941 stole my dads bike,1953,the pain from the crash was not as bad as from my dad inflicted. First bike a 1939 BSA, since then many. I have bought a 2001 wing.All new wing riders should have to do jet fighter training first.Took me 30min to start bike the key was in wrong position. Getting ready for my fantasy 4 corner run this year.

I am doing an almost all winter camp out. Left home
Oct. 12 until Nov. 17.
I spent a total of 6 nights in a real bed.
3 with a friend in N. Carolina.
2 With my nephew in Wichata falls TX at a hotel
& 1 in a hotel because i could not set up my tent in west TX.

I am using a Eureka 3 man tent.
Some days I think its enough but then there are others
when its not. Got caught in 1 day of bad rain and tent leaked threw the floor. It quit long enough I was able to pack up and move to a dryer location.
I can only imagine what it would be like not being able to
go to bed dry.

Cooking.
Most of my food has been dehydrated needs to be boiled. The three man tent is just not big enough to be comfortable
cooking in. I have bought fruit on my trip which helps when
you cant cook.

Heat.
On those rainy days it might get a bit chilled just sitting
around. If I had an electric site I might have thought about
bringing an electric heater along.

Weight.
For this trip I did end up being over weight on all limits
for weight. I had to remove 100lbs to be safe driving. I
have eaten my way through some of my over load. I dumped some in the garbage & have given other stuff away. The bike and trailer are still over weight. I am doing this alone
and took to much along. With two people and the added
weight I'm not sure what I would have left behind to compensate.

Check out my ongoing winter trip.

Do any of you guys carry a "Jetboil" cooker?

Like This:

I've been thinking about getting one for hot coffee in the mornings but $100. just to boil some water is pretty expensive.
I would like to find out more about them before spending the $$$.

Not sure if I saw it mentioned but if you're boiling water for breakfast coffee or tea make some extra, put it in a thermos and have it ready for the mid morning break. Coffee, tea, cup of soup, hot chocolate or ??
