Beginning bikepacking was easy for me as I already had a settled backpacking rig -- simply a matter of using panniers instead of a pack.  Either back or bike packing, i find that I much prefer a canister stove to a campfire - les impacting and a tad safer.  Additional gear were items for keeping the bike rolling - count on at least a flat tire or two.

Obtaining items today, I would get a bike light that could easily bee used off cycle - perhaps a small solar panel and power pack to keep batteries charged?  ithr that or a bike powered generator....

Looking at your photos, you could save some weight with a smaller tent.  From time to time, you might be camping y the side of the road, and a smaller tent is definitely a good idea....

Best wishes for some great rides!!
