One tip I recieved and pass on to everyone. Is to wear your grungiest jeans, T-shirst and skivvies. Once they get wet or need a wash you can throw them away. Reach in to your saddlebags or gear for the nicer clothes you may have packed. You can always stop at Wal-mart to buy some new jeans or whatever. I have no room for rain gear. Except some leggings to keep the boots dry. I have an HH ultra light. Now I wish I chose a model that can hold more as I am borderline 200 pounds.

before my one piece suit, i wore my leathers. i carry a rain jcket for driving rain and also around the camp if cool. i do carry old t shirts and throw away. i pack a pair of socks, t shirt, skivies in a gallon baggy squeezed tight--1 for each day. soft cooler is a must for me. come camping time, i get a few colds ones and ice and supper, then go looking for trees.
Darby, MT. WestFest 2010 specifically. I was there last year, too (just Saturday night), and also this year. I tented it as my WBBB just arrived. It would have been fun to have with for both WestFest and the Montana 1000. For those unfamiliar, the MT1000 is 6 days of dual sport riding and camping ride making an approx. 1,000 mile loop around Western Montana mostly on dirt. We organized it to run in conjunction with the WestFest rally since that was in MT these last two years. We'll gauge interest next year to determine if we run the MT1000 again since WestFest will likely be in a different Rocky Mountain State next year.
Some pics from this years MT1000. Just about every camp spot was appropriate for hammocking.
Just heading into the Gravellys halfway through the ride. By the way, yes, I'm a big fan of Wolfman bags. So much so that I ordered more (saddlebags, racks, etc.) for my wife's bike, too.
