I have Beyond Backpacking by Ray Jardine. This book is chock full if info, but what most apeals to me is the concept of stealth camping. When one "stealth camps" you intentionally avoid established sites, with their compacted ground, marauding animals aclimated to human presence, garbage, dust, soot, etc. You do not cook at a stealth site so you won't attract animals. The system of movment involving stealth sites goes a little something like this. Wake up break camp at first light and start moving, when you find a nice place to cook stop and have breakfast, keep going at an easy pace stopping for breaks when wanted. In the late afternoon, stop for dinner by a water source, wash your clothes, you, your dishes, etc before filling up on the water you will need for the evening/night and the following morning before carrying on till near dark, at this point find a stealth site, set up your shelter and go to sleep.
I was curious if anyone has applied a similar technique to cycle touring. Note that this system works best if you snack a lot. I use the NOLS bulk packing system which incorporates a large amount of snacks (no lunch just breakfast dinner and trail food).
Also I'm getting a hennesey hammock soon which I would think would make the system work even better, no need to find a flat or clear space, just 2 tree's the right distance apart. This system apeals to me because it makes the most of day light allowing you to put in a lot of moving time, and not have to muck about in camp at night, just set up shelter (or hammock) and go to sleep.
