Camping is Not Hard; It’s an Unknown

I talk to people all the time who say they would love to go camping or backpacking but…..”I don’t know how…I don’t have the equipment…it is too hard. This is why I am writing this blog. I hope this becomes the place for people to come and ask the hard questions (the easy ones too).

I have some experince in this area. I worked and owned part of an outdoor store for 11 years, I am an eagle scout, I hiked the entire Appalachain Trail and have hiked in 3 different countries. I also hae been camping since before I could walk.

I want to help get you the reader out into nature and enjoy it. It is not supposed to be hard and it isn’t it is just unknown. I want to give you the tips and triks that make camping and backpacking easier and fun.

Boots are worth their weight in gold!

Unfortunately they often do weight as much as gold and for every ounce of weight on your feet equals 8 lbs. in your backpack. So go as lite as you can for what activity you are doing.
