My central site set up

I offer no apologies for traveling heavy. I have problems sleeping on the road, so I use a go-cot, a big agnes air mattress and bag, two thermarest pillows, a Kermit chair and a tarp. The tarp really comes in handy on those nasty, rainy days. I use a smaller tent and tarp if I'm on the move and setting up a different camp each night.

New bike, pretty much the same set up.
Loaded...


Set up...


The clothing etc, ended up under the tarp after I got done setting things up, but this will give an idea of what it looks like.

There is still space for foot print, camping stove/pots/pans, and quite a few other assorted items like sandals, some tools, small axe, water, rain gear, ...

We use it because it is absolutely solid quality and has enough space for two including motorcycle gear (leave out the boots and helmets, everything else is fine).

Only two downsides: it's not self supported, you need at least 4 pegs and it is freaking expensive. But it'll outlive my desire for camping in the next 20 years ...

I totally love the tent, but if I had to buy all over again, I might get a Hilleberg Tarra instead. Sacrifice a little bit of space (8 inches less width), but get a self supported tent where only the vestibules need pegs. The Keron is large and we totally enjoy the space, but the Tarra might (!!) sometimes be easier to set up.

Thanks for the info.

Simple and minimal camping setup on the TU250. Everything fits in a pair of Ortlieb bicycle panniers.

I feel your pain. Three years now Ive been using a Big Agnes long inflatable pad. Great pad but with my bad back it was not good enough.
Just used the Luxurylite mesh cot last week and love it. Will no longer need the inflato pad.

I would be afraid of being out in the wilderness all alone and not being able to get out of that chair.

Last week I wanted to ride on of my bikes from Socal to Seattle up The Sierras and be able to camp along the way BUT I didn't have any of my camping gear with me! So I went shopping and put together my "EconoCamp," spending less then $71.

Here you go:

Beat that, KLR riders!
