I've created a mapset called SUBSET with a mask, a small non-mask region,
and subset of data that takes up much less space.

external disk so I can work on it while I travel without the disk. I'm not
sure how to best do this.

raster map is not exported but natively stored, the current region is not
respected. Hence r.pack stores the entire raster map."

800 locations with the correct projection.

there other files outside of the SUBSET mapset that I need to worry about?

Yes that works but you need also the ASCII files in PERMANENT.
