Getting way back into the wilderness can be an adventure that very few people have the good fortune to experience in their lives. I am talking about getting way offroad, back to where you can see for miles, and there is no sign that man ever existed. It is in this arena, that you can truly experience the natural world, and I have personally seen things that I could never describe adequately in words.

First of all, you need to get in top-notch physical condition for the backcountry. Then, to do it right, you need to be safe, you need to travel light, and you need to be comfortable in all types of weather and terrain. There are some great tips here for hiking, backpacking, and camping out in the wilderness.

There is a ton of gear available for success in the backcountry, and we review much of it here. Not only do we review it, but we can provide you with the knowledge you need to use it properly!

Enjoy the material we have gathered here, and come and share a campfire with us in the beautiful backcountry!
