lol, thanks NumNuts (never actually called someone that in a friendly manner). Samoht is right. We really don't have to pack that much. You'd also be surprised how much I have packed in there.
Also, that bag she has holds a ton of stuff. She even has a hair dryer and a small curling/straightening iron in there!!! Shoes is the killer usually for women. She finally figured this out and took a pair that folds down to practically nothing, along with a pair of Nike's. Other than that, as previously mentioned, you pretty much wear the same riding gear during the day, so you really just need clothes for dinner. Most of the places we stay at have washer and dryer so we wash a few items every other day.

This isn't exact what I took, but here's a picture of what I can get into that US-20 tank bag when using some eagle-creek packing cubes (KEY element to our trips btw):

In the backpack I have something like this:
