".... this is the first attempt at camping while cycling, I have done organized rides but never a solo trip. What should I take along on a trip like this?* I know I need a tent, I'm good with the bike and gear..."jfgll - I am aware that you may well have left by now, if so, Godspeed, if not and still researching *what to take (& not + 'how come,' on both counts :- ), the best single source of information I have ever encountered, and from which benefited significantly, is the text available thru ACA CycloSource entitled The Essential Touring Cyclist - A Complete Guide....
At least 40% of what I needed to know when I "converted" from group tours to solo touring was presented to me in that single 'study' text.
Over the last 20 years I have re-read it about every 4 years and am reminded of 'things' that are good about which for me to be reminded.
If you have further interest, for convenience, here is the ACA link:
Best wishes in your current & future expedition(s) !
