Question Tx-co-tx

Me and a buddy are heading to CO from ATX. This is my first higher milage trip and was curios to wonder what ya'll considered essential supplies? We will be camping along the way too. Help me make a packing list please! including food, water, tools, and whatever a rookie didn't think of. I realize mistakes are all part of the adventure, but i'd like to try to stay ahead of the ball a little! Thank you!

Taking food, water and tools is a good idea.

Ha! sounds like a plan. I was wondering if this inquiry was going to flop. How about I just scrap this and post pictures of my first long distances adventure. Thanks anyway!

You'll never make it! But I'd recommend bringing your bike to a knowledgeable coworker for a top to bottom tune up before you go.

When riding at altitude the most important thing you should take is LOTS OF WATER. You need to keep hydrated at those elevations. Trust me on that.
