It’s my third year of summer moto tripp’n and I’m finally getting this packing thing down. Here’s what I take when getting on the highway. I have links to Amazon or you can always head to REI or Big 5.

1. Clothes

Pants: Two Pairs… I’ve overpacked this a few times. I end up with the same couple of pants the whole trip. I have some Free People Overalls that I had lined with Kevlar. They keep me warm and protected. Dovetail WorkwearMy new favorite are Dovetail work jeans. They are made of heavy-duty denim and are super duper comfortable.

Shirts – Three t-shirts and 1 underlayer. Even though it’s hot during summer days, the nights in high elevations can get chilly. I love my Patagonia Capelines. They are lightweight and amazingly warm.

Swimsuit
Leather Jacket – My Ole’ Trusty Roland Sands Trinity Jacket
Rain Gear
Understuff – I bring extra underwear and cheap ones. Usually, I just throw them away. It keeps your pack lighter and makes room for souvenirs. Socks – really as many as I can fit. I take my nice wool hiking socks.
Flip Flops – for campground showers and lake swims
Bandana/Scarfs

2. Electronics

iPhone
Computer
Camera
GoPro
Tablet – BOOKS!!!
Chargers and chords for all of the above
