Tips in Backpacking for Beginners
In today’s world, most people do not have the time to do backpacking. However, there are some people who are passionate about exploring the remote destinations in the wild. Some people are living proof of those who actually LOVE backpacking. If you are one of those people, then I am going to share some amazing tips that I have learnt from my years of backpacking.
The first tip is the basics.
In today’s world, we have everything at our disposal, except time. It’s so easy to get hold of stuff, which is good. However, we need to start from zero, to be prepared for some stuff. The same goes for packing. If you don’t know what you are bringing, then it becomes really hard. When I was packing for a backpacking trip, I would always start with the essentials. This means that I start with the clothes I think I will need in the trip, and then I start packing the other stuff which may come in use. I also like to start with a tent, and then the food which I think I might eat in the trip.
Having a tent is really important in a backpacking trip. The advantage of having a tent is that it saves space in the backpack. If you think about it, even in tents there are a lot of important things like sleeping bags, clothes, and some even like medicine. If you think about a backpack, the most important thing in the bag is usually the tent. Since backpacks are also meant to be used for days trips, you can see that having a tent in the bag is really helpful in days trips.
On the other hand, in week long trips the advantage of not having a tent in your bag is really minimal. There is no way you can lose it, and there is no way you can ruin it. However, having a tent in your backpack is useful for trips where you need to sleep at a certain camp location at a certain time of the year. If you take a backpack that has multiple zippers, then it becomes really difficult to have multiple tents in your bag, like in Sierra conditions where all tents need to be zipped before sleeping. Also, the tent really needs to be large to fit in the pack. In the above mentioned conditions, a tent that fits in the small backpack is enough.
What type of tents to use in a backpacking trip
Do-It-Yourself tents are the best if you do not have much experience, and can make it on your own. Since this is your first time to backpacking, your not sure how it should fit in the bag. The best tents do-it-your self tents are tarps, hammocks, and tarp tents. If you do not know how to put it up, you will need to ask someone to help you, and this is the least helpful way to take a trip. As an expert, it’s really easier for you to take the whole trip, and at least you can take the risk on what the tent will fit in. As an expert, you can choose the tent according to the conditions and where you are going. Backpacking trips should be long, without fail. The point of a long trip is to make a lot of things fit in the bag, and be a lot on the move.
For getting to your destination, a tarp tent is the best, as it has the best features of all tents. A tarp tent is a little bit not convenient, but can do the job well. However, in the event of rain, it is a good to bring a spare tent and tarps, since you will loose one tent.
What kind of sleeping bag and what to pack
For all, except the most experienced people, a 7 d pole sleeping bag and a bag of rations is enough. A sleeping bag in the summer is the best, and can get you warm in colder weather. It’s best to take a sleeping bag and food for a trip in a backpack, when you’re far from your hometown. In the event of rain, it is best to take a raincoat and food. For longer trips, it’s better to take a sleeping bag for two, and a small rucksack to keep the bag and clothes clean. It’s best to carry rucksacks that is easy to carry, easy to dry and has a lot of pockets. In the event of a plane crash, you will have few options, so it’s best to take the rucksack with water and a lot of clothes.
Should you go for a day trip, or a longer trip?
If you are going for a day trip, for a shorter trip, one may be enough, a day trip, is much more enjoyable. If you are going to a high destination and low area, it is better to go for a longer trip, that will allow you to see the nature gradually.
How to pay for your trip and where to put your money?
If you are going to a high destination and low area, it’s best to have a credit card. However, it’s best to use your debit card, if you go to a high destination and low area, you’ll be able to avoid late fees. If you are going to a high destination and low area, it’s better to pay by cash and carry if you get cash and check fees. It’s best to pay by cash and carry if you have a lot of money to pay and if there are lot of people in the group. For a night, for a day, for an overnight trip, you’ll have to pay the same way. The amount paid should be decided by the destination and the time. It’s better to pay by credit card than to pay by check if it’s going to be a short trip, it’s better to pay by credit card, if it’s going to be a long trip, you’ll pay the same way regardless of which method you choose.
How to decide the destination?
Your destination can make your trip worth it or ruin your trip. It’s best to know what the destination is and what the weather will be like. With the destination, you should decide the route, the length and the the time. Take note of the customs and rules. Take note of the food, the trains and airports. If you’re going to Japan, consider visiting Kyoto because it has a lot to offer. You should go see the sunset in Hiroshima because it has a lot to offer. If you’re planning to go to the USA, consider visiting the Philadelphia because it has a lot to offer.
Where to sleep?
Sleeping on the train is better than sleeping in hotel. In the hotel, you’ll wake up in the night, which is a pain, even though you’re in a tent. When sleeping in hotel, you can’t have a private room, you’ll have to share with anyone staying in the room. On the train, it’s great, you can have a private room. In the night, the train will stop in every station. If you want privacy, you can choose sleeping in a station.
