Here's my setup, except I recently replaced the REI chair with a Helinox One Chair.

Nice set up. It looks like you have a good time with your camping. Which REI tent is that? You said in the video but I forgot what it was by the time it was over.

OK, there's that tent: http://www.rei.com/product/810115/rei-passage-2-tent I was hoping the packed legnth would be a little shorter. It indicates 22". Oh well. It was worth checking.

The pack length is due to the pole sections. You can always order a set of custom length poles to get around that. You can get them as short as 13" sections.

Mine from a couple years back....sadly, I haven't been moto-camping since. That will change this spring/summer!

I have made several up-grades to the steed that will make these trips a lot more convenient! I can't wait for spring!!!

Or pack the poles separate from the tent.

They're still 22" long. Won't fit in a lot of bags. Sure, you can always strap the poles on top of your stuff, but then you could just as easily do the same with the whole tent and poles together. I too keep the poles separate, but at 13", the poles easily fit in my saddle bags and I can stuff the tent in a compression sack. 22" poles wouldn't fit in my saddle bag.

Here is my set-up for 10 days of bike camping, including all meals for breakfast and supper.



Then again, at the Viking Settlement near St. Anthony, we saw another option when we bumped into these guys. Make no mistake, they were having the time of their lives. It's all good.

Wow. I'm really not sure what to say to that. Hey, at least they were out there doing it!

Also, I love my Eureka Backcountry 2 tent with it's 14" poles (standard). It's a great tent and it's 15" pack size EASILY fits wherever I want/need it --- in my Giant Loop Great Basin and also my hard saddle bags on my street bike.

This is just an image link, but you can find the "Backcountry 2" at www.campmor.com or also on amazon.com for $189.

I have the Backcountry 1 tent and love it... But if I had to do it over again, I would have bought the Backcountry 2.
