Backpacking: A Nerd's hack to Novice Backpacking

Availability: Ready to download

Backpacking is an attractive adventure for nearly everyone. After all, everyone needs to embark on a hero’s quest, after all. Braving strange places and people, being one with nature and learning new things is just the thing to satisfy this. Backpacking brings in mind all sorts of epic quests. Perhaps this could be Luke Skywalker’s journey to Alderaan to rescue Princess Le Backpacking is an attractive adventure for nearly everyone. After all, everyone needs to embark on a hero’s quest, after all. Braving strange places and people, being one with nature and learning new things is just the thing to satisfy this. Backpacking brings in mind all sorts of epic quests. Perhaps this could be Luke Skywalker’s journey to Alderaan to rescue Princess Leia, which is a galactic quest but, hey, you can pretend. I won’t judge. Or maybe you’re thinking of Katsa’s journey to Monsea to discover the secret of the strange King Leck. These adventures are struggles, to be sure, but in the end, the hero manages to discover their strengths and uses them to overcome the trials of their journey into the wild, unknown world of nature. Of course, the struggle may be harsher for those of us who have spent most of our lives living out adventures indoors. As a nerd, most of my adventures have been through books, video-games and movies. The riskiest adventure I have ever taken, before my backpacking forays, that is, was through snapchat. But that’s another story. It just so happens that most of us nerds love to worry. Admit it: if you’ve picked this book off the shelf, you’re probably either worried about a coming backpacking expedition or else too worried to get involved in one. It’s a thing that gives us advantage over other people in other fields. Worry helps us plan ahead. It helps us prepare. It drives us to study things to the smallest detail. We worry about not getting everything right and so we check and recheck. And, thus, the scientific process was developed to consider every calculation, and even a tested theory needs to be proven over and over again, you know, just to be sure. One thing that combats worry in our nerdy minds is knowledge. Knowledge helps make the seemingly unpredictable, well, slightly less scary. Knowledge of your options helps you confidently determine your next move. Knowledge that you’re well prepared helps you keep calm in the most stressful of situations. This book offers you that knowledge. Just the kind you need to kickstart your backpacking adventures. By the end, you’ll probably find the same thing that I’ve discovered: that backpacking isn’t as complicated as it appears, despite all its potential hazards. You can run the math yourself and see that the chances of every single hazard occurring during a single trip is low, especially considering all the modern thingamajigs specifically designed to keep us alive in the wilderness. In this book, we’ll run you through all that and more. I hope that by the end of it, you’ll have the confidence to add a bunch of outdoor skills to your arsenal. Perhaps you’ll even find, as I have, that your nerdy-ness is actually a great advantage in the great outdoors.

    Good, not super detailed. This book has some awesome advice and was generally a good read. The only real issue is that it doesn't go into extreme details. I have done a lot of research and most the information in this book can be found online in even more details. I suggest looking up videos and backpacking blogs. Have fun! Good, not super detailed.
