Pack sleeping bag, tent, sleeping pad, down jacket via side zipper.
Zip up the hot dog.
Ride away. You just got bonus points with the wife for saving a bunch of cash. Those bonus points can be cashed in for an extra day riding.
Thought you might be making assless rain pants for a second there :)
Nice pack solution ;-)
