Backpacking is a fantastic activity that immerses us in the outdoors. Here we provide information about why, how, and where to go backpacking.
HOW TO GO BACKPACKING
Backpacking is awesome. It gives us the chance to go off-grid, immerse ourselves in nature, and get away from the world for a night or a week or months. Backpacking is also a technical outventure. We must carry the equipment, food, and water we need for the trip on our backs. We also must know the terrain and comply with the rules for the area we are backpacking. Not so easy when you are 40+, but totally doable.
WHERE TO GO BACKPACKING
On the surface, backpacking offers the freedom to take your equipment and head out into the wilderness, camping wherever the mood strikes. Sounds romantic, right? The reality, however, is many areas place restrictions on disperse camping and the number of backpackers that can enter the backcountry on a given day. To protect the environment, many areas also have specific rules for backcountry use and require permits. It is important to understand where you can backpack and the rules you must follow.
