It is generally possible to grind up most any road hill given a low enough gear. On the other hand, contrary to popular opinion, walking a hill here and there isn't the end of the world.

Honestly, I havent even left for my trip yet and I've already spent around $2800... but I bought about 80% of my gear from REI.
My GF uses a Cocoon pillow. Takes all of 3 minutes to pack up, weighs 3.5 oz. and is extremely compact.
Unless you are riding long stretches with no services, how much water do you need to carry?Yes. Even when you need to carry extra it typically does not have to fit in a pannier any way. If the pannier has flaps tucking bottles under there works well. Also for rare needs I have stuffed a couple quart bottles in jersey pockets. I wouldn't do it on a regular basis, but it was OK in a pinch.
Sweet thanks a lot guys i'll post again when i've worked out a couple detailsGreat. I look forward to hearing from you as you have questions.
Personally, I see the vestibule as being the overhang that allows you to exit the tent while it is raining and not get water in the tent.
The one vs two door tent is definitely a matter of personal preference.
You don't REALLY need two doors. I backpacked for a decade with a samll tent for two. We coped just fine.+1
