Bringing one pair of pants for example seems a little weird but remember that I will be wearing pants already when I leave (and a tshirt, socks etc) so I'm actually bringing 2 pants with me :)
Also it's clear to see that all this stuff weights alot after cycling and hiking for miles and miles. But the longer I'll be on the road the less it will start to weigh. Food gets eaten, lighters get empty and from time to time I will get rid of stuff.
