Take A Hike

Take A Hike

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. - John Muir

I have two doctors, my left leg and my right. - G.M. Trevelyan

Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So...get on your way. - Dr. Suess

Backpack Tips

According to an REI article, packing can be broken down into three zones, plus peripheral storage:

Visualize stacking cordwood. You’re laying down rows, not building columns: Fill nooks and crannies until you have a solid, stable load—and be sure weight is equally balanced on each side. Tighten compression straps to streamline your load and prevent it from shifting as you hike.
