Here you are: determined and ready to embark in your very first backpack adventure. You might be thrilled and captivated by the idea, but you must also know exactly what you are heading towards.
Here are a few tips to help you on the way. One of the reasons people adore leaving for the wild with all they need packed in a backpack are many. On the one hand, it is the best way to live the simple way, and the closest to nature. That comes with being a part of nature with its bad and good.
While you breathe the fresh air and clear your mind of problems, you must also be ready to face storms, winds, snow or an unfriendly terrain. While you can meditate in the peace and quietness of a forest you must also watch out for wild animals and keep the right track if you want to get to a specific point… or find your way back.
While you get a feeling of pride after climbing a high cliff, you must be well prepared for low temperatures and unexpected changes of weather.
And while you are amazed by the landscapes, you must keep an eye on your fellow travel companions, just in case they are not as fit as you are. If you have went through this list already and assumed all its pluses and minuses, you are definitely ready to go.
