heck yah tour on a tandem! if you can't afford to credit card travel and don't want an "anchor" go with full size panniers front and rear. We just finished a cross country tour on two tandems, I had our 8 year old and my wife had the 11 year old. Camping and hoteling when it got really cold or for birthdays etc. no luck loading picks but check it out at crazyguyonabike and type "randomroots" into the search, plenty of photos in the journal. We both had a tent, sleeping bags, thermarests, food and clothing, I also had a stove, cook kit, big pots! and a laptop, along with plenty of tubes tools and a spare tire. have fun!
