Well my goal is touring. I am going to start fairly close to home and fairly short days, but I would like some suggestions on light weight equipment that others might have used effectively. Very comfortable camping and in nature, but also smart enough to not try to reinvent the wheel. Things like light weight shelters, ways to carry a sleeping bag without the bulk taking up all the available space, Any must carry items to be comfortable or things like that would be helpful. One thing is for sure. If you did 40 miles one day, don't sleep that night and have to do another 50 the next day its not going to be fun. Any advise would be appreciated.
