I'm planning a few long rides...depending on time, money, and how the job search is going, I may make it up to Alaska at a similar time, leaving from the central coast of CA.

For towels I'd highly recommend microfiber towels like these: http://www.mcnett.com/MicroNet-Ultra...tyle-P132.aspx They dry very fast, pack very tight, and it takes work to make them smell moldy. I've used them on deployments and love them.

For underclothes, I like the silky stuff like from Oakley...warm without being bulky. I'm sure someone will pop in and say that if they catch fire they'll melt to your skin or something like that. My advice: don't catch fire. I routinely wear them for winter riding and love them...they help keep me warm, but don't make me feel hot & sweaty when temps do rise.

Just my 2 cents.
