Well I am trying to consolidate list of things needed for successful tour currently here ...since I just started composing it so its not complete ...anyway its of no use to you but just for me I no problem ...right? This is my personal site? I can do whatever Smile

My probable backpack stuff for the possible incoming tour! Should be within 7-8 kilos sans cycle spares or tools which I wont carry on backpack! Its just for cycle only as far it goes  Smile

1 plastic or foam mattress...and I am thinking of some good rollable plastic so that can be used as sledge to drag cycle on heavy snow parts easily! or wud invent some fordable or reusable temp clamp sledge for it! U just cant drag it all the way always on snow without such help! Log bagh yahan saale cows ko le ke ja rahe cycle ricksaw mein toh hum apni choti si cycle ko nahin le ja saktey? LOL
