    Water purifier, primus stove, dehydrated food, mess kit, self inflating mat, sleeping bag, BUG REPELLANT!, SUN SCREEN!
    Just for starters.
    I havn't done any self supported road touring for several years now, but when I did I used a BOB trailer to haul everything. Works terrific.
    I still have one that I rent out.
