Recently, I shared my journey from a person who has never camped before to a backpacker. I’ve also shared some tips on how you can prepare for your own backpacking trips (see slides and sketchnotes).
It was a really short trip, and not exactly a full-blown backpacking trip, but we actually packed a lot of things in it — driving, hiking, camping, Reno, Tahoe City — we were satisfied.
We were thrilled to snatch 2-day Sky Campground reservations at Point Reyes National Seashore and enjoyed the beautiful Tomales Point Trail and coast.
So happy — reservation dates were right after Memorial Day, people were going back to work, but we were going backpacking!
Very excited to kick off our journey in backpacking officially with Angel Island State Park!
A small first step to an ambitious goal.
