Other than what BB8 and I brought two of (like the jet-boil), I used everything I brought except the tire-change kit and spare oil. The next big improvement for me would be leaving the Kermit Chair home as I could have gone without it and upgrading my sleeping situation from a Thermarest pad + air pad to just one of those but I really do sleep better with both. Ah hat and do 3 changes of clothes (Undies, Socks, shirt) instead of 6 sets. We did laundry every 3 days. I didn't need as many clothes as I had. So that's really about half of one pannier of less stuff I could leave out. The Anakee 3 tires would have been a much better choice. I really like those even in rough terrain last year when they came on the bike. RE Campgrounds: When people are building decks off their campers, it's no longer a campground. Everyone up there was permanently setup. Edit: damn you packed light.
