Go to /out/ or google “how to camp light weight”.
Essentially, most of your weight should be food n water. A water filter will cut down weight as well. You don’t need much to sleep in a tent when it’s warm out, too be honest you could get away with a tarp but you’re new. Just remember that most Normies pack waaaay too much shit. The best thing you can do is to practice setting up everything so if you have to do it quick (say, in the rain) you can. Also, get one of those water proof bags for your kit,the drier your kit the better your life.
You don’t need a poop shovel, that’s retarded. And don’t worry about wild animals too much, in general you’re much scarier to them then they are to you. If you do come across a wild animal and it isn’t a cougar or grizzly or skunk, either let it run away or yell and wave your arms and it’lll fuck off.
I’ve had to spook coyotes off of the old rail bed I like to ride on regularly, it ain’t nothing.
