Our #fastfriend Meghan Milligan is no stranger to a moto-camping trip, and she put together a thorough packing list for all of us with all her top recommendations! Get ready to load up your bikes, trucks and trailers and say #overandout as you head off to our first ladies-only event!
Check out the list and definitely chime in on social if you have any other recommendations we may have missed. :)
