As I have mentioned before, several times, we are venturing into the territory of backpacking. You can read more about us Starting New Adventures and see what I am talking about. I have also mentioned that we have beenGearing Up , and two weekends ago brought us one step closer with the purchase of the hubby’s backpack! It was all very exciting. When we bought mine, I got to walk around the store with some weight added to it, so when it came time to buy his, things were done the same way. Let me tell you, it sure made us confident in our purchases having an idea of what to expect once we start packing them for the trails. We are slowly getting where we need to be and having a lot of fun in the process.
We will be packing them up and doing quite a bit of hiking before we venture out into the wilderness. Things are coming along quite nicely. We booked our first primitive camping trip for mid June, so there is a deadline we have to meet. Here in WI we are waiting for winter to let go, and let us get started with some of the physical preparation we need to have in order to make this new hobby safe and enjoyable. Until then, we just hoard and try to prepair as much as possible.
Our first primitive camping experience will be done on Rock Island WI.
