182 Are You Self Reliant?

On this Episode we encourage you NOT to go SOLO backpacking. Well, at least until you’ve mastered a few skill sets. With a desire to get others to explore the benefits of solo backpacking, it’s important we take a step back and FIRST focus on what you need to know in order to get there. How prepared are you when things go wrong? We talk all about what you need to put into practice BEFORE going out alone. It’s not physical, it’s mental preparation that can make all the difference.

by the way…you can always join in on our discussions on our Facebook group page – just go to:

What we talk about:

Driving a car is much like backpacking

Scott quits after his first night

FEAR is reality not day dreaming
