Ah, nothing like the great outdoors! If you are a backpacker, the outdoors is your sanctuary, the place you go for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. There is nothing better than hitting the trails solo or with others to enjoy all that nature has to offer.
I still remember the first trip I took backpacking. I was only 19, was not the least bit in shape, and was completely clueless about what all backpacking entailed. I was hiking in Idaho with a couple friends. Not only did I forget to bring my hiking boots, but between the three of us, we didn’t have nearly the amount of food needed. You know what, though? I had an amazing adventure and became hooked on backpacking after that trip!
Over the years, I have learned a lot about backpacking. I am often asked by those new into the adventure how to pack appropriately, what gear is needed, and the best places to backpack. With that in mind, I started this site. I hope you will follow along to learn more about backpacking this beautiful Earth we call home. I will be sharing from my experiences in backpacking to hopefully give you the best start, and to help you grow to love and appreciate this wonderful adventure.
