I carry one of those grocery keep it cold / hot plastic bags (surprisingly durable and weighs / folds to nothing.) You've seen them in the store, costs 3 or 4 bucks. Keeps the wind off on the way to camp, slowing thaw. Makes great beer bag and at least some ice lasts overnight if breakfast is too include slab of bacon.

The wood an ice stop was a mile from camp so not to much melting, if I'm not sure where I'm stopping for supplies I take a nice fold down soft side cooler. I can fit a twelve pack easy in the Marsee tank bag when I extend it too.

Last ride was last week of July 2012 from Santa Fe, NM to Idaho Falls, West entrance of Yellowstone down to Grand Tetons NP then Jackson hole.
Then to Rock Springs, WY, Grand Junction, CO to Ouray, CO, Telluride, CO then home.

No Bears some rain..

It's a Mountain Hardware backpacking tent. I forget the model.

It's a two-man tent, but only if you really, really like the other person. My wife and I have used it on many backpacking trips. At less than 5lbs it's perfect for that.

But I'm going to replace it for trips like this on the bike. I want something with more room. We had rain two nights of this trip and sitting in that tiny tent sucks. There is no reason not to be comfortable, I've got room for a bigger tent.

That tent is a Mountain Hardware Pacific Crest Trail II. I have one and like cafe racer says its small. I refer to it as a two lesbian tent. Two smaller people who really like each other. I don't think they make it any more.

Have to get my fish scale out again as the weight changed from when I was on the FZ6 but I think it's around 50 or 60ish lbs counting the luggage itself.
