How Backpacking Works


Backpacking is essential for strengthening your body, mind and outdoor survival skill set.

Bugging out on foot is backpacking under extreme circumstances.

Personally, it has become a new hobby of my family.

It has been a learning experience every step of the way.

Each time we are able to push ourselves further while enjoying the spectacular views of nature.

How Stuff Works website shares a lot of insightful tips and suggestions on how to train, what gear to use and how to plan your trip.
