As with everything in the world..."shit is subjective". All I can do is show you what I've got and why I use it. The rest is up to you and your personal preferences. Go ahead and Google "bike touring gear" and fall into the black hole... however; the shear amount of buffoonery is mind-boggling.
Here's the basic list:
- sleeping bag
Want more? Just add whatever else you want. If you're looking for more expert advice, then check out this website: "Tom's Bike Trip". He's been there and done it... and there ain't no reason I (or anyone else for that matter) should bother any further.
Meanwhile I'll try to get some photos of my personal gear as I go through a Spring cleanup and inventory. How's that sound?
