Bikerhen....Thanks for sharing photos of your overnighter. Sounds like great fun and a perfect way to 'practice' for a longer trip.
My BF is really into camping; I'm less enthusiastic. (Possibly because I've only done it a handful of times?) After a day of hiking or biking, I crave a hot shower, a comfortable bed, and some assurance that no nocturnal critters will invite themselves into my snooze space!.......Keep us posted on how your future tours go, and what you learn and finetune each time.
