Backpacking in Golden Ears Park:
You can feel dirty when you go minimalist camping. When you get to your campsite after hiking for a few hours, having to go bushwhacking to find a spot to set up your tent, cleaning your camp, organizing it, collecting and chopping firewood, hanging a bear bag, and so on, you might get a little bit dirty. I love backpacking, kayaking and spending time outdoors and I still like to feel clean and pampered when participating in those activities. But, Nick is also worried about how much gear we are bringing. He doesn’t want me to overload myself by bringing a bunch of non-essential beauty products. So as a happy medium, I have one small toiletry bag that I bring on all of our minimalist camping trips. Moreover, I have created a list of all the items I keep in my toiletry bag. I believe that all these items are essential to feel papered while living in the bush for a few days.
When going for a day hike it is important to bring the proper gear. You never know what may happen, it’s always better to be prepared for anything! Many of us think that we wont get lost or hurt while out on the trail, but there is always a chance it could happen. I believe that if you want to enjoy the outdoors, you have to do it responsibly. I have linked the items that I have from MEC, I trust them and love them! Here is my list of what to bring hiking:
Christmas is just around the corner! I know it can be hard to find the perfect gift for that special someone that loves the outdoors. Especially when looking an outdoor Christmas gift. Well look no further! Here are some interesting suggestions that I have either received (and loved), given, or want! Also to make it easier, I have linked all the items on Amazon. How easy is that! You don’t have to leave your house and you get the perfect gift to give!
This is my overnight backpacking list. These are the clothes I usually bring when we head out on an overnight backpacking trip in the summer. You want to make sure you are ready for any type of weather, no matter what season you are hiking in. So, it is important to have a good, detailed, packing list for backpacking. Even though you may be hiking in 30degree weather, it still gets cold at night. It’s especially cold when you can’t have a fire. Moreover, during the summer months there will likely be a ban on fires in the back country. So, it’s a good idea to bring lots of warm clothes! Here is my packing list for your next backpacking trip:
In the summer 2014 my boyfriend, Nick, and I decided to try out backpacking and set out on our first backpacking adventure. The first overnight backpacking trip I ever accomplished was Greendrop Lake in Chilliwack, BC. We had packed up our gear the night before, making sure we could carry the packs. I remember being worried if I’d actually make it, the pack was almost the same size as me!
