HOW TO BACKPACK PART 1: Planning Your TripHave you always wanted to backpack, but never had an opportunity to learn? Well, this is the series for you! Over the next few weeks, I'm going to go from the planning process, through the execution of one of my overnight trips to hopefully give an idea of what sort of things to look out for and expect on your first backpacking trip. As well as how to go about planning your trip! Avoid uncomfortable nights and rookie mistakes by coming along on the adventure! Covered in this video: Choosing a location Awareness of current rules/regulations Safety in planning caltopo.com DISCLAIMER: Backpacking is a dangerous outdoor activity that comes with inherent risks. Due to mother nature's unpredictable nature, it can be impossible to prepare for every circumstance you may encounter outdoors. I take no responsibility for the risks you take on your adventure, they are your own. However, hopefully, this video will aid in smarter decision making to minimize these risks. If you follow, please remember to leave no trace! Take only pictures and leave only footprints.
