I've been thinking about doing an S24O for some time, I just needed to gather a few more items to be comfortable. My most pressing need was a decent tent. I thought about toughing it out by sleeping under a tarp and mosquito netting but changed my mind when I visited Backwoods today. I found a relatively inexpensive two man tent with lots of mesh, its a North Face Rock 22. The only thing I'm lacking now is a stove but I'll get by with some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on my first trip.
I bought these bags about 12 years ago, they've been in storage for most of that time. I laid them out to check for spiders. They both need to be washed.
The blue one is a 15 degree North Face Cat's Meow synthetic filled bag. The other is Kelty 15 degree down filled bag.
My new tent. I haven't figured out the best way to carry this. Should I split things up with the rainfly and poles in one smallish pannier and tent body and footprint in the other? I could just bungee cord it to the top of my basket. It's a bit too wide to fit in the basket and is longer than my rear rack.
I hope to get lots of use out of this tent.
