The thing that I found is that you really don't need all *that* much stuff. Between your carry on and one good checked bag plus a trip to Walmart or whatever, you're set. I brought no cooler, and played it minimal.

with a kid and possibly one on the way, they might need more than a bachelor would

Nah, flying in with just a checked bag and carry-on won't really work for me. I want a comfortable home base, and for me that means things like chairs, a nice fat air mattress, a table for food prep and to lay my crap out, a shade structure that's separate from my sleeping area. All that's without taking the bike factor into account, and we'd have to give up any idea of bringing our traffic signal with us. or any of the other projects we're considering.

And the above is without bringing our daughter along. She brings us into another realm of what's necessary to bring.

Very true.. I didn't read into the context of it. You have a very valid point.

I guess the real issue would be cost for truck vs camper + comfort factor divided by available fundage..
