Episode 47: Backpacking Bootcamp

On this episode we discuss what new backpackers should know and offer you tips on how to get started. In the end we will share with you a practical exercise that will help you plan your next backpacking adventure. New Backpackers often make some common mistakes that we go over them on this podcast.

What we discuss on this Podcast:

  • The History of the 10 Essentials and what are they
  • Break your Trail Shoes in for heaven’s sake
  • Base weight is a range, not a specific weight
  • Do you even like backpacking? Yes, then test your gear
  • Scott – how to visually prepare for a backpacking trip
