Grant and I are planning a little adventure for August and are compiling a checklist of things we need to bring along. Take a look and let us know if we've forgotten anything. The trip involves approximately 3,000 riding miles, with 900 of those being on gravel or dirt roads. We'll mostly be camping along the way. All this has to fit on two bikes, only one of which has hard panniers.
