Shimazaki,
I know it looks like alot and I can probably leave a few more items at home but...on this trip I packed for 3 weeks solo. I have in the saddle bags tools, tire repair, tube and air pump. Also cook stove and cookware knives plate, coffee pot and 5 days of food. Also 2 liters motor oil and auto fuel for the camp stove attached to the back of the bags.

On top two spare gas cans adding 3 gals or 12 liters. My tent is on the right saddle bag and my sleeping bag, pad, polartech jacket, rain gear hiking boots and shaving gear are in the Blue waterproof bag and the Blue bag is not full. My clothes are right behind me in the Black waterproof bag. 5 underwear, 5 socks, 4 tee shirts, two long sleeved out door shirts and a pair of jeans. Also 2 1/2 liters of water.

I almost forgot. A camp chair so I don't have to sit on the cold wet ground.

Every trip I take I pack smarter and lighter.
Dudley

Well done Dudley!
What I haven't been able to pick up from looking at the pictures is:
1. Where have you packed the kitchen sink; and
2. How do you pack your tuxedo and bowtie?; and
3. Where is the 42" LCD flat screen stored?

Other than that, what you take with you seems perfectly minimalist!

Kind Regards

Dudley you are prepared for everything, nice description,
but I´m wondering if you catch some "nice" bad roads, doesn´t the extra weight becomes a pain in the ass?!

Went out a few days ago, had to take some pics, yet again!

This is nort of the Dellen-lakes, pretty much in the middle of Sweden.


And so is this, and man do I like those T63's.. Going even knobbier in front next time though, hoping for better sand-capabilities aswell as better traction in the wet. But this setup's still outgunning the Metzeler Tourances, no doubt about that!


Ps. Potski - godd*mn you keep taking beautiful shots (even though your wife was responsible for the last one..), maybe I'll get my behind down there one day in the future! Chances are I'll just stop in the first spot with a view and just stare for the rest of the trip

Thanks // Mix

I can answer this: yes, to a point. Gravel and hardpack dirt is not so bad as long as the weight of the load is low and forward. Sand and mud - not so fun.

A couple weeks ago my network server died at work and I was given a replacement by another library who no longer needed it. I went to pick it up thinking it couldn't really be heavier than all my camping gear packed on it. Apparently it's 108 lbs (Dell PowerEdge 2800), lighter than most pillions, but it sure felt heavy.
