I’ve been experimenting with what gear to take, and how to pack it on the bike for this road trip for the last month or so. Being a backpacker for the last 30+ years helped a lot, I already had most of the gear, and am familiar with packing light. But now I don’t need to carry it all up a mountain on my back, the bike can take that burden, so I’ve allowed myself a few extra luxuries.
So there it is all laid out. Believe it or not, all of it fits on the bike and there’s even room for me too! I should really weigh it at a truck weigh station when I have time.
All packed and ready to go. First stop is somewhere in Montana. I’m using a trip planner website called Furkot to roughly plan out where I will need fuel stops, and where some campgrounds are along my route. It’s turned out to be pretty handy.
