I do not think there is a good, better, best solution for what I expect is a 3 day tour. I would select the least expensive approach. It might not be the most convenient for packing as you might be finding unique approaches for attaching things on the rack. But, if the trip works and you expect to do more trips, then I would invest in better designed panniers, racks, fenders and perhaps a bike.

My first camping tour was 1975 on my Jeunet 10 speed. I can;t remember how I loaded my bike but it was about 600 miles round trip. I was too dumb, young, poor and before internet to get help. It was helpful that my riding partner, now my wife, had completed a longer trip the summer before on her Batavis. Enjoy the ride!

For ideas, many people blog on crazyguyonabike. You might want to check that out for equipment, route and other ideas.
