This episode was from our LIVE show on our Facebook page. We thought it had good value and wanted to convert it  into our weekly podcast. Our Top 10 Suggestions for New Backpackers was a lot of fun.

Here they are:

  1. Plan and Prepare
  2. Fit your Pack to your Torso (in other words, don’t borrow your backpack)
  3. Learn how to Pack  your Pack
  4. Test your before you go
  5. Know how to filter your water and what system you are going to use
  6. Practice hanging a Food Bag or Bear Bag
  7. Treat your feet before they become blisters
  8. Reduce your weight with a little meditation BEFORE you pack
  9. Clean your Gear
  10. Trust the Trail

Do you have any suggestions for new backpackers? Share them with us. You’re never too old to learn. 🙂
