Instructables
Picture of Camping: On a bike & low budget!
  Frustrated by my employment situation (or lack of), I decided to check out the vast lands and great people of Texas.  With the help of some friends, I scrapped as little gear as possible together, and out the door I went.

Picture of Food Stuffs & Cooking Of
Ramen noodles, tuna, salmon, chicken, summer sausage, & peanut, hazelnut, & almond butter. 

I never had a fire because I camped any where I need to.  This is how I made my meals:
 -Crush the ramen in the bag, place in "cook ware" with water, & simply let it sit. 
 -Add the desired meat, condiments, & stir
 
The peanut, hazelnut, & almond butter I sucked out of the package to cure my horrible sweet tooth.

Step 4: Not Just Trash Bags!

Sleeping Bag
 - As I road toward the end of a day I would collect a box for a bed mat and stuff it in the handlebars till I found my destination.
 -Get in 1st bag and tie the bag to your sides using a belt loop.
 -Poke a hole in the bottom the 2nd bag and put your head through it.
 -Use a shoe for a pillow
 -Depending on the weather, you may need to poke some holes in the bag. (You will cook like a turkey!)

Shower
 -Fill bag with water and tie a knot to close it.
 -Hang from a tree using the knot at 2 branches.
 -Get ready to shower.
 -Use a small stick to poke several holes in the bag and SHOWER!

Crock Pot
 -You can make a large meal for several people using my same cooking methods as mentioned before.

Foul Weather Gear
-Using the same method for the top half of your sleeping bag, makes a killer rain poncho.

assuming multi tool comes with a knife and mini saw? otherwise, I'd include one of those (manual wire based chainsaw very useful for camping/cutting wood)

I camped without fire.
I´m biking across south america and camping on the way. with no $$ Cool to see someone else is rocking it on a bike!! Check the hammock I made from spare pieces of rope, it's super lightweight and cost me 0$ and just one afternoon.

Cheers!!
