A subreddit dedicated to backpacking in the wild places on earth - where people are few, cell signal is nil, and Mother Nature still reigns. Backpacking defined as: Multi-day trips into the wild, unpopulated, areas of the world.
I'm looking to buy a tent that is inexpensive and will help me stay warm during milder winter conditions (~20 degrees) and will be comfortable during the summer. I've just been sleeping in the open air or using a poncho for shelter, and while it's nice for when I'm trying to toughen myself up sometimes I want to be more comfortable. The main criteria I'm looking for is 2 person, under 200$, and durable, I don't mind if it is heavy, as I'd like to become an infantryman in the near future and like carrying heavy equipment to get me used to lugging lots of weight around. I've been looking online a bit but there are a lot of options and it's a bit difficult to narrow the selections down. Thanks in advance!
Hello! I am hiking the Skyline to the Sea trail in 4 weeks and county stopped the shuttle. Does anyone have any tips for getting back to Castle Rock? My original though was to just uber there; however, there is no cell phone reception. I think the nearest phone reception area is Scott's Creek about 5 miles down the road. Does anyone else have experience with this?
So i have 5-6 free days in a row in mid march, and I'm hoping to take a break from some of the cold and snow in Jackson Hole, and was hoping to get down to the desert. Would anyone have recommendations for a 2-3 night trip in either Bears Ears, Grand Staircase-Escalante (Current boundaries or former for both of those :/), or the needles district of canyonlands?
