Planning a 3 day trip this year and just getting kit together for as light a load as possible. Got a 3x2m tarp, tiny stove and some lightweight cooking equipments. Along with tools, navigation aids, torches and other bits and bobs the whole lot is very compact with just a small sleeping bag and bivvy bag strapped on the bungee webs on the back of my pack.
What's the most popular options for food? Worth cooking pasta and stuff up before we go for ease but more bulk or are the dehydrated foods a good option?
Any opinions on water purification tablets rather than hoarding up on bottled water at any opportunity when we reach civilisation? We are never going to be too far from decent flowing clear water sources.
Going to do a dry run local soon to see if there's anything huge we've not thought of yet as this will be our fist one with the bikes!
