I am about to go on my first non-supported tour. Will do tent camping. It will be about a six day tour, about 400 miles. The tour will be Big Sur area of California in mid--September.
Are there suggested lists of what you might need? About how many pounds, how many panniers do you take. For that short period of time, I think maybe 25 pounds and two panniers, plus sleeping accessories on the rack. My tent is 5 pounds, sleeping bag is 3. There will be five of us on the tour.
