I've been using bungee cords for 35+ years on my bikes. Never lost a thing. I'm not a "noob". Just don't buy the "el cheapo", ones.

I've worked pretty hard getting my settup right. I don't like to suffer and enjoy cooking a nice healthy meal.

Everything in the pictures below pack nicely on the GSA with some room to spare.

There are a few items that i've made myself as most of the time no one makes what I want for camping.

[IMG][/IMG]

I have a coulple of friends I travel with and combined with what they bring along we always camp in style.

For more pictures check out my Webshots below. Plenty of albums with pictures of how we camp.

And one more of my cooking settup.

Amazed me how you manage to pack that picnic table. I still have a lot to learn.

I've made 4 of those settups now. 1 for me and 3 others for a few have seen my settup. The cooking platform will accommodate two 6 1/2" stove. I use the Coleman 442 which is my primary stove and a Primus as a 2nd.

The grills are from a company up in Washington called Purcell Trench http://www.purcelltrench.com/ they are makers of top notch backpacking grills. I use 2 of the Travelers Grills to help with making it all fold down small. Aerostich use to carry them as I bought both of mine from them online. Now you need to go through Purcell Trench.

Above is the entire settup folded down with the Primus stove. Below shows how it all fits in the lid of one Jesse.

Its also pretty much windproff and as you can see here it works out pretty nice,

Somewhere on Skyline Drive. Or was it the BRP...? By the end of the trip it morphed into a much larger pile on the back.

My setup

Eureka Tent, 1 weeks worth of clothes, wisperlite stove. Sleeping roll with sleeping bag and mat. The big items are the bag, mat, tent. That takes up one saddle bag, and half the trunk bag alone. Put a passenger on and I don't know what I'll do. The tail bag is a corduar type gym bag with 2 side pockets, 2 end pockets. Sprayed with scotchguard. Items packed inside are packed in garbage bags incase of rain. I've had very good luck with this but have orderd an aerostich bag anyway.

Eric


BTW looking for another trip, the last was NC to TX and back, through the mountains (deals gap) Al, Mississippi, AL TX far point being Galveston, and back via New Orleans. 3100miles 8 days.

Interesting way to put the Strom to bed! Do you use the seat for a pillow?
