How To Pack For a Motorcycle Trip: Food & Water, Steripen and Stove


So, this is my hydro-pack and the reason I get this brand too is that it’s BPA-free
and this brand actually makes a regular plastic container like this the cheap one where the
water tastes awful after a little bit. This brand is actually specifically made to keep
all the taste and taste well for a long time, but this just slips right in my backpack or
into my jacket and then I’ll drink all day long. I guess this actually, this clips right
in so that’s kind of nice, here’s the… clips right in there and goes on your back
and come back take a drink, turns off, but that’s how I carry water. Again, it’s
important because I can roll those up where if I was taking a jug, you can’t really
roll that up. These are the clips for the top of it..
Let me show you how this works, you’ll just take the cover off here, you dip this into
a water into a container – it’s got to be a clear container, let me show you the
container I’m bringing, it’s a BPA container – so it doesn’t carry any bacteria. I
also use this for my protein shakes, but you hold this in there about 45 seconds and if
this water had bacteria before after 45 seconds, the light turns green and there is no more
bacteria. This is actually used in many cities to clean your water. So that is very cool.
I don’t drink soda. I don’t really drink anything, so water is super vital to me. You
got this for drinking. Now, the next thing is my backpack. So, I
got this very basic backpack, so if I am walking around the city site-seeing, that simple,
you throw some stuff in here. What this also does is it’s nice and light; it’ll fit
anywhere that is important. When I was looking at backpacks, I wanted a backpack that could
roll up… small like that and so again this is all about weight and size. This right here,
this has a spot for your camelback, now this will hold two liters of water. Again water
is super important so this is how I’m packing water. When I’m not using this, I just roll
it up and put it away. So, what I do with this? I clean this water, dump it in there
and that’s how I make water anywhere I want to go, so I filter it , dump it in there,
get a couple of liters and I’m good to go. That’s cool, right?
And actually on my jacket, I have another camel-back spot, so I bought this smaller
one so while I’m riding I can take a drink and stay hydrated. When you’re riding, you‘re
sweating and everything so much it’s vital to have water. So I can carry about almost
three liters of water which is plenty for a day or probably two days if I needed it.
And my SteriPEN, if I’m stuck up by a creek I can— So, next is pretty simple, how I carry food.
It’s going to be warm in a lot of places and cold in a lot of places so you don’t
want it to freeze and you don’t want it to melt. I don’t carry a lot of food, it’s
not like I’m going to be carrying chicken or eggs or things like that, but basic necessities.
You have, let’s see… I’ll have some protein powders, little packets of nuts and
fruits; just simple. Here’s what’s important too, if you’re travelling on a motorcycle,
you have to realize that it’s going to rain on you occasionally and things are going to
get wet, so my cases are all waterproof, everything’s waterproof. If I have to have anything outside
or something I would really want protected, I’m carrying extra zip-lock bags, quart-size
and sandwich size to put passports, whatever you need in there but these come in very handy,
these beef jerky. A few beef jerky right here, a few Cliff bars and what not, it’ll all
change but it’s just a nice little container to keep all your food in and make sure it
doesn’t melt or freeze. Also, you.. I’ll dump this out and you can see again, the container
it smashes right up, so if I’m not using it, smash it right down to nothing. Again,
size is everything, I’m sure you’ve heard that before.
Okay so, this is my pot that. I figured I can use this as a pan as well; this is the
handle there. And inside there is where my stove goes. The stove actually runs off regular
gas like for my motorcycle. So what is excellent about that is the containers that I’m carrying
for fuel for my stove is also extra fuel for my motorcycle. So, that’s very cool, plus
it’s small enough to fit inside my pot so I can boil water, make my tea in the morning,
I could even put eggs in there, cook that in there or whatever I need. So, this is kind
of my all-in-one tool here but it can’t take that much space. So that spoon goes right
back into the pot, and that’s it, stove, pot… everything right there.
