Emerald Coast Bikepacking Tour – Packing List (Final)

About 40 hours to go and here’s as close to final as I’m going to get. (I’m sure I’ll throw something in or drop something out up until the minute I leave the house.)

There’s not a huge difference from the plan last week. I dropped the sleeping bag liner since I don’t think the nights will be warm enough for me to be outside the sleeping bag. The biggest change is I decided not to take my rain jacket in favor of my lightweight, wind jacket. I’m sure we’re going to encounter rain, but it will be warm and I think it will be spotty. In that case, I’d rather just get a bit wet.

I added food to the list since last week. I’m just carrying a few things that I don’t want to go hunting for. For example, one of my favorite snacks on a ride is Hot Tamales. Convenience stores rarely have those so I’ve prepackaged some in small bags. (I also like peanut button Snickers or Reese’s FastBreak, but those are easy to find.) I think my touring partner is planning to carry quite a few meals, but I’m planning to shop daily for dinner and breakfast.

I did a test pack of the panniers last night. I ended up with slightly more than 4 pounds each in the front and 5.5 pounds each in the rear (including the panniers). I’m surprised it came out like that as I put the dense stuff in the front (sleeping bag, stove, fuel, kitchen, food) and the bulky stuff in the back (tent, clothing). I’ll look for candidates to move to the front.
