Adds a whole new spin to "taking the girlfriend camping"

EDIT - and I notice Turboice and I think alike!

I always carry the same stuff for a week as for a month. Riding two up with my son requires some toys, and some daipers for the night. Kermit chairs, table, sleeping bags and mattresses etc in the duffle-bag, tarp and tent on top.






Our camp.

Here's my setup on the bike getting ready to head out:



Here's my 'bedroom' at the rally. It's a Tenth Wonder Hornet Hammock and an Old Man Winter Tarp with a center pole modification.

Lady friend and her baby in Odessa, Texas..
I ATGATT - the packed helmet is a spare.
Looks like a lot because it is, I have work tools in there, two AR15's + some, an A-Sym Hammock, week worth of clothes, 5 MRE's, etc.

It's an old pic, will get some more taken soon

It is closer to the ground so a bit harder to sit down and stand up, and only has two resting points so you need to balance a bit or lean against a tree if is involved.
The new Big Agnes (USA) catalog just came today ... this chair was listed... looks like it might be very nice:

Get a 25lb (or similar) scale and weigh what you've got to get an idea of the load that's a good start.

I'm not sure what temp. range you are in, but for $100 or less you can get a 40F rated bag that packs down to "football" size and weighs less than three lbs. likewise for less than $100 you can get a nice air mattress that's hardly bigger than a large burrito and weighs about one lb...

Cruise the REI store ... lots of weight and space-saving ideas!
I do own one of the Alite Monarch chairs, they are excellent. Packs down small and lite! I searched long and hard for a compact chair that has lower back support and found nothing else that compares! Plus the balancing feature warns me when i've drank too much!

I like mine.... in sandy or muddy conditions I have to make sure the two feet are on a rock or it sinks in,
but a good solution for the size and weight.

I love to hear thoughts from folks who have owned the Alites and the Kermits, their pack sizes don't look too different from the couple 'how to' videos I've seen, so does it just come down to weight and comfort?

Kermit vs Monarch.

I have both, and speaking as a young senior citizen, the Kermit is alot more older age friendly. The Monarch
is very comfortable but difficult to get out of properly. The Kermit, well is a Kermit and everyone that see's it /sits in it , think's it is the slickest thing since sliced toast. I tend too agree. YMMV. Happy Trails KYSHO
