Today I started packing my camping equipment, a trial run to see how much I could pack in this bag which will sit across the passenger seat. I'm planning on leaving my top pannier for the laptop, other electronic gear, gloves, hat, lots of small stuff and some space for snacks. The left side pannier will have clothes, towel and rain gear. The right side pannier will have more clothes, flip-flops, sneakers, personal stuff, tire patch kit and other things as I finalize packing.
Below I have my Eureka tent in the middle, it's out of the bag and with all the parts separated, sleeping bag and pillow on the right, sleeping pad below. On the left I have two pots, one is inside the other, the lids, a necessity, I have had bugs fall in the food while I was cooking. The two pots allow cooking on one and use the other for soup or heating water. A cup and a collapsible soup bowl, the orange thingy with the eating utensils inside. I also have the jetboil and fuel, camp soap (green bottle) sugar and creamer in the two white plastic containers and packets of instant coffee, tea and lemonade. A small camp towel and three small rolls of toilet paper.
Here's the final result. Tent, pad, pillow, sleeping bag and cooking pots with cups inside and all the little bags of coffee, tea, lemonade inside the cup and around the pot, all inside the big bag. On the small bag I put the jetboil, fuel, eating utensils, sugar and creamer containers, soap and towel.
I then realized I still had the camp light and head light and these could fit inside the big bag.
With the bag now closed, I put cleaning wipes, extra batteries, a lighter and a couple of plastic bags on the two pockets on the cover. The small bag wouldn't fit inside the big bag so tomorrow I'm going to rearrange everything. Sleeping bag might have to go somewhere else, I want all the camping equipment in the big bag.
I like to pack things that belong together in the same bag. It's easier to locate things and avoids forgetting things when repacking in the morning.
