As you can see I have eventually opted for panniers to drop the weight and it improves handling dramatically. The stuff is arranged as follows:
Pannier 1: Tent, Waterproof clothing and riding accessories
(Pocket: Puncture repair, inner tubes, diary, camera stand)
Pannier 2: Sleeping bag, Mattress, First Aid Kit, Miscellaneous items such as tape, cord, chargers and wires)
(Pocket: Toiletries, Spanish Phrasebook, Hip Flask (filled with Laphroig single malt but will probably hold a number of different spirits around the way).)
Backpack: Clothes, Food and cooking utensils, Duck tape
Top Bar: Energy tablets, gels and Caffiene tablets
I'm glad that is sorted - now just to put my affairs in order.
Precisely 1 week today!
