    Thanks for sharing your setups guys, the information is useful for figuring out my own trip logistics.

    To Mark: that seat cover looks awesome! I’ve seen similar covers on alaska leathers (the sheepskin buttpads), but would you be able to share the size/color that you picked up? Also, did you upgrade the seat pad as well? Thanks for your time.

      Hi Phil,
      Our setup changed on the last trip, just haven’t updated the website yet. We all used Giant Loop Great Basin and Kreiga bags which seems to be a better configuration. That sheepskin was just an old off cut that Kev gave me, unfortunately it disintegrated early on in the trip and I was left with a painful butt!. This year I used a Seat Concepts which was much more comfortable.
      Cheers Mark
