In this episode Scott and Ariane talk to Casey Rheaume who’s backpacking adventure started out with just some small steps on the trail. Casey shares how she started with just a desire to learn a little about the outdoors and to keep pushing herself a little at a time. Car camping was first, then some Snowshoeing, then it was a Backpacking Adventure of a lifetime.
As a first time backpacker, Casey also explains how important it was to go with people who could help her learn the right way, but also let’s her make mistakes also.
