130 When You Don’t Know – What You Don’t Know

On this Episode we revisit what it means to “Plan Ahead and Prepare”. And what the “blankety-blank” that means?  We break it down even further and DECIPHER THE BASICS of what ACTIONS correlate to this common phrase. This question was asked by one of our very own newer Backpackers who had heard this saying many times before, but didn’t exactly know HOW to even begin knowing whee to start. PLANNING OR PREPARING for the bare basics. We bring to you a very basic 101 on Planning to Prepare when you don’t know what you don’t know.
