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).
So happy — reservation dates were right after Memorial Day, people were going back to work, but we were going backpacking!
The first Saturday of June is National Trails Day in the U.S. This was established by the American Hiking Society (AHS). On this day, thousands of thousands of people volunteer to maintain and project hiking trails.
