    I went w/ a handlebar harness instead of a bag as I already have a collection of dry bags from kayaking. The front harness would take up to a 20lt bag (if you have the wheel clearance). I also ride w/ flat, or now riser bars, which gives me more available width.

    Motor power or human power?If it is human powered, there are some parts of the middle that lack trees. You might want to take a pad and bivy to go to ground when that was the case. I have hammocked on a motorcycle all the way across a couple of times. The northern route is better for trees and traffic. Check out US Highway 2, especially now that the Canadian border is open.

    CtBruce, you might want to take a look at the date on a post before replying.

    Having said that, sometimes others will make use of old threads and get some useful info.

    I have been exclusively using a hammock on bikepacking trips for the last few (8-ish) years and have had to get creative a few times, but it's always been worth it. Then again I've only done trips east of the Mississippi.

    I carry a Tensa Solo now a days on my bikepacking trips.
    Like others have said, finding one thing to tie to isn't usually that hard and I'm mostly bikepacking the SW desert. I've actually had more trouble w/ getting the "perfect" stakes for the terrain here than finding something to tie one end of the hammock to.
