Don’t let inexperience stop you from taking the trail of a lifetime!

Backpacking is camping to the extreme. It enables you to take the path less traveled and find those once in a lifetime, National Geographic worthy vistas! It’s about finding your inner John Muir and taking only what you need. Backpacking is truly the ultimate adventure.

However, it’s an adventure where preparation could make or break your trip and your back. One of the biggest mistakes rookies make is overpacking. Normally, we take pride in fitting an outstanding amount of objects into our bags, but for backpacking, you have to find a balance. The longer your going to carry your pack, the more important this is. Your pack needs to be light enough to lug for miles and miles, while still having everything you need. As backpacking veterans, we’ve learned through experience how to do just that.

How to find the group:

Join online via our Facebook LIVE event on the BCO Facebook page (

Each week we take a topic, drill down as quick & deep as we can, to get you up to speed and out playing.  We’ll take Q&A after the presentation to help guide everyone into outdoor summer fun mastery.

What will we talk about?

We’re going to get through as many of these essentials as we can plus a Q&A at the end: 

- Food and water needs and options

- Backcountry toilets and beyond

- Building up to carrying your pack

- How to pack your pack – lighter is better

- What you need in your first aid kit

- Filtering water with several different types of filters

- Staying safe around potential predators

- How, where and why to hang your personal effects and food


Join us and you'll also be able to download the free “#10Essentials for Backpacking” that evening - we promise to get you backpacking like the best! Everything you need to know, buy, skip, learn and carry in a single, awesome tip sheet.
