Camping or hoteling?
I realize your looking for an article, not advice. Can't help with the article, but was wandering how you plan to travel. Camp, hotels, cook, eat out, Subway? How you choose to go makes one hell of a difference.
I can go pretty light by doing fast food and things that don't need to be cooked. Small tent, bag, and pad. I never carry anything I can buy on the road. You can always buy batteries or oil on the rad.
