There are lots of threads about what's a reasonable weight to carry on tour.
But discussions about touring weight really only make sense if the style of touring is understood. What's suitable to carry on a tour lasting a couple of days is different from what's required to live on the road for a couple of years -- and there are a few touring styles in between. Maybe it already exists(?) but it would be handy if the touring community had some agreed terminology and descriptions for each broad style of touring. A few that spring to mind are:
- Multi day
- Credit card
Not a perfect list -- anyone got a better set of words to add to the touring lexicon, and maybe some definitions?
