Minimalist camping.

Check this guy out. Watch to the end. This is "minimalist" camping gear, on your bike.

He's "that guy." The one you end up waiting for 45 mins all geared up ready to go, while he's still packing up his camp. Or, he needs 4 dudes to help him pick his bike up. Lol.
I started out like this too. You learn very quickly after a few trips exactly what you don't need. Now, I'm constantly figuring out how to bring less stuff, and only what is necessary.
Minimalist. Lmao.

That lesson comes pretty if you actually have to carry all that crap on your person. Ounces really do equal pounds.

So true, on my last Grand Canyon hike (4 nites) I left the 4 Lb Thermaest behind and took a large (!) 7 Oz air hight-tech mattress. My Gregory packs is only 3 Lbs (les . And the tent for two is about 3 Lbs 7 Oz.

I usually toughed it out when I was younger but hauling all my crap and a squad automatic weapon (SAW), ammo, spare barrel and the stuff I thought would be "nice to have" teaches one priorities in a hurry. Even just in training you start cursing your own stupidity within the first day. Ahhh, good times.

I would expect a year and a half after the publishing of that video he might've revised his kit. what's interesting is not deleting the video or posting an update/revision. since there's nothing posted in the last year... ?

He does display some nice stuff though. Looks like he won a couple large dollar gift certificates and bought the most expensive stuff he found.

I'd rather invite my mother-in-law to ride 2up with me on a 1000 mile all dirt ride than talk to that dipshit for five minutes.

Btw, is there already dedicated minimalist camping thread ?

I'm putting some gear together for the odd nights camping on my KTM 500.
Looking to exchange ideas on the lightest least bulky setup to carry.

Dont want to start another thread if there already is one.

The small bike camping thread is pretty much the same as a minimalist camping thread.

This is not a minimalist camping video. It is a guy showing off all his "cool toys."
