I'm in the same boat. I've got a Trek 3500 and used it for my first overnight trip. I bought a rear rack, some small panniers, loaded it up and took off. When I got back I made the decision that If I was going to use the Trek I was going to have to buy a Bob Yak, (which seems like a great way to go) or buy a touring bike. You'd be surprised how hard it is to get all your stuff on a bike. I decided I needed a Surly Disc Trucker. Since I didn't have $1500 and I really want to know everything I can about my bike I decided to build my own. (great wintertime project) I'm not sure if I've made the right decision or not, but this spring when I get my Trucker finished I'll know for sure.
