I carry a small pack of 'baby wipes' and a tube of anti itch cream.  Riding doesn't cause them.  The moist wipes are better than TP and the cream with hydrocortisone 1% stops itch

General Discussion / Loading for touring

I need a better idea on how to load a bike for multi day touring.  I have done many day trips but now find myself starting to camp by bike this year.  How do I successfully load all my gear and get it all balanced out?  Fotos / drawings of a loaded bike appreciated.

I use a cable lock most of the time and take my bar bag with me.  I use a padlock around the crank at night.  A small bell (found at a tackle shop) hooked up to the chain will ring if anyone tries to move the bike at night.

I find a cheap plastic shower curtain makes a good cover.  Thin enough to pack and large enough to cover the whole bike and use as a tablecloth, ground cloth or tent vestibule.
