    Hello. Don't confuse 'want' with 'need'. For example, hot food and drinks are pleasant, but if you're touring in a warm climate they might be more of a want than a need. It'd be different if you're touring in a cold climate. Can you avoid packing that stove?

    Hang on, a gentleman from Yorkshire offering to give stuff away?

    Which countries in which parts of the year (eg Spain in summer, Scandinavia in winter)?

    In this place that's a dangerous assumption to make.

    So - where's the tour aiming for?

    I'll be taking a kawasaki vn800, on my own!
    I used to camp a history ago and I'd imagine things have changed immeasurably (hopefully smaller) since then, not one bit of gear at the mo,im not rich but money really isn't a prob.

    All around GB and Europe Verona Paris lublin Seville. So I'd expect the route to change with the weather. Ps if your ever doing the "stoaksley tt" pm me for the b and b price!
