The underlying message is just get out there with whatever you have and enjoy yourself.

Great picture of the little loop just south of Ejido Erendira and all the new farming fields. Been there a ton of times and wish I was there right now, going south for sure.

A gallon of water, food for a few days ( Bumblebee chicken salads), a sleeping bag, ibuprofen, glock, tourniquet, 3 pairs of socks & oem tool roll under seat. Everything else in the tank bag and backpack strapped down.

No luggage = pack REALLY light.

I learned humping my ass around Afghanland that the less i have, the better. Also, the only thing I need to survive is Water, and fresh socks! :P

DomEod- There's something extra nice about traveling light. The words "Live Simply" was on our Rangers trucker hat.

We just came back from Philmont and I did the ultra light thing this time. It worked like a champ.

Ultra light packing met all of our crews needs for 10 days on the trail. My base weight was 13 lbs which included socks, water capacity, tent, sleep pad/bag, drawers, rain gear, toiletries camp shoes and a small personal first aid kit. The only thing I'll add to the moto version of travel is a tool kit, pump, spoons, and a tube-likely another 10 lbs of stuff.

Thanks for your service

No, really, the mustache means I love you.

this is basically my bug out bag. i like to camp with it and it gets slightly modified once in a while as i figure how to do stuff better. this way i KNOW i can rely on it if i need to.
Do you have a packing list? curious what shelter and sleeping bag you are using.

Here's mine, got so many great ideas from this thread...

This was my first camping trip, and except for a couple things it all worked out really well. I have a Thermarest Basecamp Sleeping pad rolled up with a Big Agnes Summit Park Sleeping Bag in the dark blue sack. A REI Half Dome 2 tent, ground pad and Kelty Noah's Tarp in the orange sack. My chair is in the black sack, and everything else is in the Light Blue sack, clothes, cooking, food, etc.

This was a quick overnighter - I had some new gear I wanted to try out.

Prior to packing -

There is a bridge hammock/tarp and a 1 person tent in there. Missing from the pic are some bike tools and a tire tube that were in the garage.

Loaded up -

Bought that REI chair on the way and strapped it to the top. It fit in the bag on the way home.

Camp set up -

Wouldn't it be better to reduce the load on back by putting helmet on head instead of in a bag on top?
