By using those to clean up the loose ends I just by the long straps, don't need any short ones

I am a fan of the rock straps as well - good stuff.

This style strap can also be useful - I found them as a skier. Available in shorter lengths if needed. Very durable.



Priced well at $5.95 from here (and reasonable global availability)

Or a 24" version

Daughter and I headed out on our first camping trip. The Wallyworld dry bags work great.

Eurica Apex 2 Tent and all other gear went into our medium size North Face Base Camp Duffel.

Ever worry about that bike falling on you while you're in the "tent"?

Not a chance. I usually tether with a strap from the bars to a tree, post stake or whatever is around.

Liking my new Wolfman bags.



Not much of a campsite pic but I can carry all I need.

Everything for 2up

Loaded up everything me and the Mrs needed for a two week trip. Gave my wife one pannier, I took the other for me and the tools. Top box has the tent, stove, water filter, cook set, stove fuel, bug jackets and other misc stuff. Green valise on top carried light items like a ground pad, rain gear and some food stuff. Added the blue ground pad as a back rest pad for the Mrs. On top of the panniers were the sleeping bags. Tank bag has snacks, water, spare gloves, camera, bike lock, etc.
