Since I am fairly new to the ADV bit, my deal is still getting refined. This is packed for DVDaze last year.





This is the "light" version (for when you go off a cliff and someone has to take back your side bags due to your stupidity):



This is it all set up:



This is pretty much how I roll now:





So how things are packed: The sleeping bag goes in a side bag along with the therma rest to make sure I'm dry when I sleep. The tent, ground cloth, and camp chair all are on the back seat because I don't care if they get wet, but also b/c there is no room in the bags. The top box is generally for food and liquor and extra gloves and hats for ease of access. All clothes go in the tank bag and stay clean and dry there accordingly.

It certainly isn't particularly efficient nor is it pro in any way, but I have been dry and prepared on all my trips thus far, so it works.

I've changed this a little, now have Jesse bags and have added a large tarp to my camp setup.

Here is the camping gear I used last year for a 5 day trail ride. That blue sealine 30 bag has a Eureka Solitare tent, Thermarest prolite 4 air matress, and kelty Lightyear sleeping bag. Once setup I stuff my riding gear into the sealine bag and use it as a pillow.

Sealine 50 with sleeping pad, sleeping bag, Eureka Isis solo tent, jet boil. Clothes, and food in a back pack. Sheepskin seat pad serves as pillow.
The black DRZ

Same basic set on the XR but have clothes in a number plate bag.
