This is just way too much stuff--I think some of the responders have done a great job of culling things out. I met a guy on the Pacific Coast route who carried 12-13 pounds--total. And he was camping out. He did however, have to eat in restaurants and fast food places because he carried no stove, utensils or other food stuff--just a few bars. He had no panniers, and carried a light tarp/tent type deal and a modern light sleeping bag. All this was strapped onto a rear rack in a bundle that looked like about like a large sleeping bag cover. that;s a little lighter than I am comfortable with, but it illustrates what's possible. It is a lot more fun to ride along with a very light load, though--almost feels like taking a day ride, day after day. I have found from mountaineering, that you need a lot less than you are tempted to take. The mountain guys I know can go for a week long trip with just 35 pounds or so, and this includes all the food and emergency storm gear, tent etc. They've got it down to a science. On a bike tour, the idea is to carry almost no food, because it can be bought along the way. And, in the event of particularly gnarly weather conditions, you can always get a motel. Fast and light--that's the way I will try to go from now on.
