51OWVbt8I-L._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_Interested in experiencing the outdoors but overwhelmed by everything you need to know to backpack safely?

Do you have a sudden itch to venture out into the wilderness, wake up next to a babbling brook somewhere and watch the sun slowly come over the horizon? Are you ready to escape (albeit temporarily) from the daily grind and a society that prioritizes consumerism over all else?

Backpacking allows us to experience nature in a way that simply isn’t achievable through other means.

The problem for many of us, however, is getting started. Finding a good place to backpack, selecting gear (one trip to the sporting goods store makes this seem like an overwhelming feat by itself) and learning how to survive without the modern amenities we have come to rely on are all daunting tasks for the inexperienced backpacker.
