Welcome to our online backpacking journal.
Our goal here is to show you backpacking from the perspective of 6 different friends who decided to get into the hobby of backpacking together. We are all rookies to backpacking, but we each bring a little something different to the table in outdoor experience. If you have stumbled across this blog there is a good chance that you are a beginner backpacker yourself.
We found that there was endless amounts of information on the web for getting into backpacking, but many times the information is very scattered and often overwhelming to a point where you may feel there is no way you can take on such an intimidating task.
As a group we decided to really go big or go home. Or first “major” trip will be a 5 day trip to Yosemite Park in California. Because we have no actual experience with backpacking there has been an immense amount of research put into the planning of the trip (something we can cover another day). Posting everything from tips we have found along the way to full detailed trip reports this will hopefully become a valuable source for a group of friends somewhere around the world to decide the same thing we did and just go for it!
