I would avoid pitching your tent close to the KYBO’s (port-a-pots for you newbees). While being close may be handy if you have weak bladder control, you’ll be hearing the constant slamming of the KYBO doors through all hours of the night and morning hours as 10,000 other riders relieve themselves. I choose a better’s night’s sleep and a little farther walk to the KYBO over a short walk to the bathroom.
If your plan is to reduce your gear to back pack size, why not rig your bike out with front and back panniers and go self-contained. This year’s route is fairly flat, and hauling that little gear in panniers may be a better way to go then having the hassle of wading through a semi sized pile of luggage. Just my thoughts. Course you may not want to carry the extra weight, but if you’re up to it, it might be the way to go.
