I pretty sure none of us are suggesting 7 hours of slab....
We're suggesting 2-5 days of riding as much dirt as you can find along the way,
...and camping where each day ends.
The actual event
is often only a small part of the whole "adventure"
You just haven't caught the "bug" yet....

What if your buddy in charge of carrying the tubes or food or whatever, doesn't pack them on the bike...a million more...
What mdfehrmann said......pack your own emergency stuff.
A self reliance attitude might save your ass one day
