The guy who sits across from me is way cooler than I am, and a total BA, so I had to ask him about all this stuff. He might have lied to me just to make me look dumb. So this is either all true, or none of it is true. So, don't look any of it up.
So, according to this guy people do this thing where they put a bunch of stuff in a bag, put the bag on their back, and walk around for like a couple days or a week or whatever. People call this backpacking. So, anyway, this guy gave me the whole rundown on this whole backpacking thing, and all the gear he likes to take when he goes backpacking.
So this guy says the first thing you need is a pack: the right size pack. Check out a big day hike backpack for a fast and light overnight trip. Multi-day backpacks are the best for when you're taking a little more gear on an overnighter or you're hitting the trails for two to four days. You'll need room for your tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and all your accessories like your stove and some grub. But you want to make sure you're not over packing, because you're gonna have to, you know, carry it. Crazy, huh?
So anyway, we've got tons of backpacking gear, and you should probably wander around and check it out. While you're at it, check out the Moosejaw Companion. That BA I was talking about earlier put together a whole bunch of kits for backpacking, broken down by the length of trip you take. He's really so much cooler than I am.
