Overloaded touring bike

My exercise in overloading a touring bike. It was fine except for the steepest grades. I'm really not carrying any more stuff then usual, I just have it distributed better using the front harness, frame bag, and saddle bag. Not a bad setup really, but I really need to figure out how to lighten my load.
