Getting Ready / Re: How much weight to bring?

Very interesting to read about the differences of opinions. So, I have been on the road for three weeks,most of the days being cycling days except for four beach days!
I'm carrying about 1/3 of my weight, and so is my husband. Yes, the hills are hard, but that's also because we are on recumbent trikes.
We have used the chairs only once, mostly because the weather is dry and we don't spend much time in the tent. In two weeks, upon our return, we'll review our equipment list and see what needs to be pared down.

Thanks Tony, the thermarest trekker chair is a good idea. So, if I weigh 130 pounds, I should not carry more than 65 pounds. That does not include the weight of my trike, right?

Thanks for your input, Fred. What about electronic equipment? Does anyone bring GPS's, iPods, iPads? How do you charge these while camping?

Hi! This is my first post in this Forum. The information found here is impressive! As a new cyclo-camper, getting ready to ride about 1800 knm in the Maritime Provinces, I am wondering how much to bring and specifically, how much weight to carry/pull?
I've toured before, but did the B&B route. This time, my husband and I are camping. We both ride recumbent Trikes (mine is a Catrike Pocket) and can ride 70-80 km easily with maybe 25 pounds in our panniers. But for the longer ride, the temptation for us is to bring everything but the kitchen sink!
I tend to prefer riding very light... while my husband wants to bring foldable camping chairs! We have some fundament differences, and I would like some advice!?  ???
