I’m fairly lightly build, so my necessary traveling moto is “Light is right”. I read a book some years ago called Climbing Light, Fast, and High by Mark F. Twight. In this book Mark describes idea like: no need to bring a tent or sleeping back, a torch with spare batteries is lighter.
Traveling in any shape or form is really about being mobile, so traveling light is a real advantage and much more pleasurable.
I once saw a documentary in which a English cyclist was being interviewed on a desert road some were in Mongolia. He’s declared all he had as his luggage was a spanner to mend his bike, a spoon, glassier sunglasses against the dust, and a wob of cash.
I’m sometimes astound to read that some touring cyclists carry 50Kg of luggage or more. Hoe many spare bikes does one need.
