Mitch,

Just read your mtb camping story. Great stuff. Very jealous. Amazed you got enough gear on your bikes the way you did to support overnight camping! Need to talk to you about that sometime.

Btw, just adopted a new part of the OT...Courtois section, halfway between Bass and Harmon Springs. Was just down there last Sunday. Very pretty section. I'll be back soon and often.

Jack

Just saw this post. I've been planning something like this for a long time. My idea was to use a hammock to keep weight down. Have been hanging out at http://hammockforums.net/ and learned enough to make a nice DIY hammock, tarp, and bug net. Now I just ordered a Yeti ARC hardtail mountain bike to use as my OT vehicle. Haven't got it yet, but it shuld be a lightweight ride with a mix of SRAM X.0, X.9 and Shimano XLT parts. Also ordered a Freeload http://www.freeload.co.nz/ rack for the rear and a Revelate http://www.revelatedesigns.com/ handlebar bag and pocket for the front. Considering making a frame bag if I need it, and of course I've got a good selection of backpacks if I need them. I'll post up when I get her built and go for the maiden voyage.
