    Oh so that's the US-Mexican border. I figured a crazy cattle rancher with a strong back built it.

    I like my marmot 2 person tent with large vestibule on each door. Short tent poles and it packs nice and small. Not seen is my Kermit chair which I love when staying more than just a short night.

    I looked hard at the ‘3’, I liked the hexagonal footprint. More than happy with the square ‘4’ though :thumb

    I did look at the 4 but it was just a little too much tent for me.

    Thought I'd ask a question to all you desert campers out there. Do you have any problems with air mattresses, seems like everything out there has thorns. Some are easy to see and get off a tents area, but some are a lot harder to notice until you find yourself on the ground in the morning. I'm planning on using tyvek for a ground sheet, but will it protect from those pesky goatheads and other foot poker'?

    I concur on both counts.

    The joy of an unburdened bike both in the twisties, and in camp packing and unpacking, is worth working toward.
    I encourage everyone, to get home from a trip and put everything you didn't use in a separate box in the garage. Leave it out next time, and continue to remove stuff you didn't use. By the end of the riding season, most of us will have at least a full panniers worth of space and weight left home - - - and most importantly not missed. Most of us will be able to cut our load by at least 30%. Some, even in half.
    The bike will handle wonderfully . . . . you'll have your camp set up in half the time, and you'll be tore down in the morning and packed in a quarter of the time. Your friends will want to be like you. :1drink

    Great looking and very organized kit though! Ride on brother!

    Tyvek is some tough shit.... I wouldn't call it goathead/ thorn proof but definately highly resistant. Probably the best option avalable short of dragging around a roll of kevlar.... Take those heavy assed boots and stomp around in your tent footprint before putting down your tyvek for extra piece of mind but a tough ground cloth + Good mattress are pretty much impervious to desert thorns unless you set up on a bed of prickly pear.

    That,was my thinking exactly. I don't know anything tougher that I was to carry. Plus I have a bug bivy that has a pretty tough floor . Don't want any bed buddies if you know. Would hate to scream like a girl waking up with a snake

    I take back everything I said about traveling lite, and will start looking for an aluminum top case like this. Maybe I'll mount it on mini air shocks to as to be off road worthy.
