    Here's the equipment list:

    If it was me:

    2 man tent
    WIth a recumbent it can be a big seat to cover, on a regular bike all I need is a small plastic bag to cover the Brooks. You can't tarp the other stuff when you're riding in the rain it needs to be water proof
    15' iCord for hanging food, reinforcing tent in bad weather, clothesline etc (Bear Country)
    Bear Spray
    Advanced First Aid kit, including suture kit (Yes, I know how to use it). Worth carrying the basics a passing med might need to save your life, as in military, O- blood patch though I don't bother myself.

    biodegradable cam soap
    sanitizing gel
    Muskol, or maybe the new Cutter
    Old bottle of Coppertone from the 80s I cover up pretty good
    2 sleeping bags (50 degree rated, ventable for warmer weather)
    Sleeping Pads (closed cell)
    utensil bowl and cup
    2 rain pants, 2 ponchos
    6 water bottles each
    I own more axes than the rest of Bikeforums put together, but one doesn't need one for a bikes trip
    Ti entrenching tool, light weight, might be a good choice for dogs. I carry a lockback and a Cold Steel Spike

    Clothing, Me:
    2 shorts, padded
    Knickers, padded
    2 sets, Tights (not for me wreck the chamy effect)
    3 jersey's
    2 underarmor shirts
    Cold weather fleece, Quarter Zip and windproof shell
    camp shoes (Crocs, really light weight)
    1 pr camp shorts
    4 pr socks (merino wool)
    1 pr touring gloves and
    Sun hat


    Wife: Clothing
    3 shorts
    3 shirts
    2 pr long shell pants, wicking
    4 pr socks (merino wool)
    Crocs
    Fleece and windproof shell
    Reg touring gloves and cold weather as well
    Ear Warmer


    Bikes:
    Schwinn Passage touring bike
    Sun Recumbent trike
    trailer for gear

    Locks
    basic emergency multitool (I always just take the loose wrenches that specifically fit parts of my bike with the correct extentions for torque. I try to sellect components with repairs in the field in ming, like cable nuts that require 2 wrenches.
    4 power links
    chain break tool (I thought that was what the power links are for?)
    extra tubes
    patch kit(including speedy and other patches, quick stick, and roadmorph pump)

    fiber spoke for my bike

    If I need to remove a damaged link to replace it with a power link, won't I need the tool? It's not a lot of weight and cheap insurance!

    Check on the brake cable! Almost forgot! Power links are tiny! I have chain lube as well, one of those things I forgot to write in to the list. Pedro's Ice Wax!

    Coffee is Seattles Best chocolated coffee and I use backpackers filters on a skewer to make it. Don't drink Tequila, but I do have a small bottle of Otard VSOP Cognac we are taking for those little tots in the evening!

    No pic of the trailer, but it's a kid trailer (A decent one!), from Schwinn.

    You are looking at the wife's basic load. Other gear will be trailered. She'll have some in the single pannier on the back, but I'll be pulling the bulk of the weight. Good thing I'm a big horse ogf a Clyde!

    Take the tool. You'll need it. Them durn chain pins are hard to pull out with your teeth, particularly in the dark with cold, freezing, rain coming down.
