It rains a lot where I live. A lot. First thing out last thing packed is a big tarpaulin. Setting up and tearing down camp underneath a big ol tarp keeps everything that's packable dry. Staying dry while cooking and lounging n the rain makes it all worth it.
Thanks, will keep that in mind. will also be watching the weather forecast.

thanks for everyone's input so far. the ice cooler might be a viable option in the future. will try the perishable "eat first" option and see. I actually love spam, and use it occasionally when I cook. there's so many flavor options. they even have a bacon flavor choice. as far as eggs. will have to figure out a way of transporting them. I didn't realize bacon could stay out of the frig. for a few days. now I have to figure out how to pack stuff onto the bike.
When I was hiking last, I carried my eggs in my oatmeal container, none broke, surrounded by oats. I like to take bacon too as it's a good way of carrying fat. Still ok after 5 hot days. Other hikers thought I was nuts for not carrying expensive pre-made meals from camping stores, but it worked for me, bacon, eggs, and coffee sort of goes with camping.

thanks, I was worried about carrying perishable items. last thing I want would be food poisoning. got it one time, don't want a repeat. you're right about the camping store meals. I've discovered that you can purchase a lot of stuff from your local supermarket that works for camping.

I have a months wait for my Himmy; this was my setup last night on my R NineT. Every time I go I spend some time reducing the kit for next time. I’m down to the ‘wingman of the road’ tent and my side bag. My minimalism helps in areas such as this. I’ll be transferring this to the Himmy when she arrives. I think I’ll be a bet less precious with the Himmy too. It’s gonna get muddy!32423243

are you camping on someone's property? I've never seen woodlands so manicured. is that a bivy tent? doesn't look like you have much headroom.

From the Utube channel of Stuart Fillingham. Check out his channel: loads of vids on RE's. He's got three of them and a Triumph.

That’s the thing. The ‘Wingman of the road’. It’s a great piece of kit. If I sit outside there’s plenty of headroom ;-) not a jot inside though. Incredibly easy to set up and down and gets loads of positive comments; spreading smiles everywhere.
Yes, it is owned land. I’m waiting for the Himmy before I go wild.

Thanks for the videos, will check them out. Good Luck when you get your "Himmy".
