Over in another thread Monk and Sheep were discussing overnight trips with a backpack/panniers.
I've been wanting to do one of these for a while, but don't know where to go or what specific gear is needed. I've got most of the basics, but tend to "OVERPACK" and would like to find out from you guys what works and what doesn't.
I'll probably travel to N GA or WNC mtns as they are the closests. Further West complicates things too much for me as I would most likely drive from FL as flying with gear is a PITA.
I do mostly car camping so a lot of my gear is 'geared' to that. I don't mind buying some necessities.
Also, anyone want to join me?
I'm thinking Late Spring of '05. April or May? Open to suggestions 2 or 3 days?
