The weather has been so good and more on the way, broke out the tour equiptment today. Set my tent up...all's good and I've got a week off in a few days. Don't matter if the weather holds or not its so warm out there..... bring on the rain I've got the gear. Any others thinking of short tours...2-3 days, and or longer ones ? Whats your gear been paired down to over your tour history, weights always going to be a factor. About 2yrs ago I rode with another triker, and we went for 5days from Duke Point on Vancouver Island (east side ) to Campbel River then to the Sunshine Coast(Lund) and eventually to Horseshoe Bay. I've done several day trips from Swartz Bay out on several different routes and once an 8hr trip to the Sooke potholes park(1 nighter).

I'm saving my kopecks for one of those :-) Am wondering how they are in snow? Can you power through drifts and such or is it better to take a two-wheeler after a storm? Look like they'd be great on ice.
