Wow - You are pretty good at this adventure stuff!
I like your travel kit. Mine is similar, but I don't have a hard case for my tools, spares and such. I put my camp gear in one wolfman bag, and clothing in the other. My rear duffel has the tent poles, tools, spares and maybe my jacket liner. Not really a good combo. I have my little doodads, extra gloves, camera etc in a tank bag. I like your set-up better. Not sure my tale plate would hold a pelican, though. I'll look into it. Obviously, my Wolfan bags are stuffed alot taller than yours. Sort of clumsy travelling.
Great report. Hope you get to make another trip out there before it gets too hot.
