Stuff and More Stuff

I have been setting stuff aside to take with me on my cycling trip.  Seeing how I will have some support along the way I really do not need to carry panniers full of supplies.  Plus, I will be riding through towns and will stop and eat my food at restaurants as will as sleeping at hotels.  I was going to try to do the whole camping thing, however, I will save that for a future trip which is over 15-20 days.
