    A weekend tour

    Not right now, but late springs/early summer. I am going to add a twist (at least I think it's a twist). I am going to use my old 3 speed Schwinn. That said, what are others bringing along for an overnight tour? It's like bikepacking but far less involved.

    I bring my tent, sleeping bag , sleeping pad, lightweight stove (made from a venom energy drink bottle) with fuel for morning coffee, coffee obviously, stainless military mug...for coffee, food (my fav overnight food is honey bunches of oats with peanut butter wrapped in a tortilla) ,some extra clothes for night...depending on the conditions and the normal water bottles tools etc. I can keep my overnight gear weight to less than 10 lbs. Enjoy!
