Tim and I went camping in the Ouachita National Forest to put our new gear to the test. We had a newly purchased Nemo tent, air pad mattresses, and a water purifier pump to get down and dirty with. We also wanted to test Tim's never-ending improvements to the way he packs everything onto the bike.
So we headed out with just the gear on the bike, and found the most amazing spot in the mountains complete with a cave and a nearby stream.
While testing our gear, I came up with a short check list that Tim and I should go through while on the road.
