How To Pack Your Backpack

Whether you’re a first-time camper or an old vet, use these tips to properly pack your backpack so you can hike to your destination quickly and comfortably.

Published

on

When you’re about to head out on a camping trip the most important thing you can do is pack your backpack and pack it correctly. When you’re on the trail you will be thanking yourself after you have packed your bag correctly.

But if you have packed a little haphazardly then half way through trekking to your destination your back will hurt and your ears will hurt too from all the pots and pans that you left to clank over and over again with each and every step you take. You don’t want something to poke you in the back, and you don’t want the weight unevenly distributed.

Whether you’re a first-time camper or an old vet, use these tips to properly pack your backpack so you can hike to your destination quickly and comfortably.

BALANCE YOUR WEIGHT

If your backpack is not balanced then your back will start to hurt wherever the majority of the weight lies. Or, even worse, you could fall down a hill when you take an awkward step because when the weight is unevenly distributed it could swing one way and lead to you losing your footing.

Start by putting the heavy items close to your body while making sure that nothing hard or pointy will be jabbing your back all hike long. Think about making a barrier of soft stuff all along the outside of your backpack with the hard stuff in the center.

KEEP TRAIL NEEDS EASILY ACCESSIBLE

If you pack up stuff that you are going to want to use on the trail just make sure you won’t have to completely unpack your entire pack just to get it. Don’t jam your water bottle on the bottom of your backpack underneath your camping stove. You don’t want to have to unpack everything every time you need a drink.

Keep sunscreen, medical supplies, snacks and headlamps in places that you or a friend can get to quickly and easily. Think of everything you might need and keep it in a convenient place so you’re not spending your whole camping trip regretting not being able to get to necessities like your sunscreen.

CHECK THE FORECAST

Before you leave, make sure that you check the forecast so you can properly prepare for your hike ahead. If it’s going to rain halfway through your hike then you’ll want to be able to quickly be able to grab a raincoat. If it’s going to be super hot then you’re going to want to keep your sunscreen close. Knowing the weather will lead you to know how to pack. Knowing how to pack is the best way to pack for a trip successfully.

STORE YOUR FUEL SAFELY

If you are bringing liquid fuel on your trip then make sure it is sealed and it is packed somewhere safely where it will not open up during your hike. The last thing you want is to be covered in liquid fuel on your hike because even if you don’t catch yourself on fire you still will not enjoy the smell. Trust me.

The Best Fall Festivals In The Country

With the coming of Fall comes great Fall festivals all around the country! Check out this list of the best such festivals from around the U.S.

Published

Fall is right around the corner and, I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t be happier about it! I’m definitely ready for some colder weather and more opportunities to wear my favorite sweaters and jackets. But there’s another great thing that comes with Fall… and that’s Fall festivals! I just can’t get enough of the caramel apples, hot cider, and everything pumpkin flavored. So if you’re like me, you have to check out one of these great fall festivals before winter arrives!

NEW HAMPSHIRE PUMPKIN FESTIVAL

If there wasn’t any pumpkin stuff did Fall really even happen? I say no. The New Hampshire Pumpkin Festival takes place in the town of Laconia for a few days in October. It offers amazing live entertainment, plenty of pumpkin-based cook-offs and treats, and, their real claim to fame, over 20,000 carved pumpkins stacked into a 34-foot tall tower!

NATIONAL APPLE HARVEST FESTIVAL

Just like with pumpkins, what would Fall be without some delicious apples! And if you’re an apple lover, head over to Biglerville, Pennsylvania for the annual National Apple Harvest Festival. It happens every year during the first two weekends of October. Aside from all the delicious apple themed treats available, the festival also includes plenty of entertainment options including live dancers and even a petting zoo!

ALBUQUERQUE INTERNATIONAL BALLOON FIESTA

They almost seem like a thing of the past at this point, but I assure you, hot air balloons are alive and well! And the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is one of the best opportunities in the country to catch a glimpse of a bunch of them in the air at once. The Fiesta starts on October 6 and goes till October 14, and aside from all the breathtaking balloons in the sky, there’s also a lot of fun nighttime actives for the whole family.

NORTH CAROLINA PECAN HARVEST FESTIVAL

There’s just something about pecan pie. I just love saying it! And so do the people of North Carolina. In fact, they love pecans so much, that they celebrate them every year at the end of October and into November at the North Carolina Pecan Harvest Festival. It includes a parade, a 5k run, and, of course, a pecan baking contest. Maybe you’ll even get lucky enough to meet the Pecan Queen!

OKTOBERFEST ZINZINNATI

Personally, as a beer-lover, there are few words that get me as excited as “Oktoberfest.” And Cincinnati has one of the best Oktoberfests in the country. It happens every year in the last week of September (I know, I know, but this is technically when it happens in Germany!) and they proudly claim to be the largest Oktoberfest in the U.S. So if you’re a true Oktoberfest-head like myself, then get to Cincinnati at the end of September!

CRANBERRY HARVEST CELEBRATION

Cranberries are definitely down on the list of “Fall stuff” behind pumpkins and apples and pecans. But they’re still a huge part of everything Fall! That’s why the town of Warhead, Massachusetts holds the Cranberry Harvest Celebration every October. There are plenty of delicious treats for sale and cooking demonstrations to take in. And you can even wade out into the cranberry-filled water just like the cranberry farmers do!

SONOMA COUNTY HARVEST FAIR

If you’re a wine-lover on the hunt for a great Fall festival, then look no further than the annual Sonoma County Harvest Fair. It happens during the first weekend in October and has been going for over 44 years. Any event with that much history has got to be good. And once you taste the delicious food and get a little buzzed on all the amazing wine, you’ll know I’m right.

1. Little Pine

Little Pine restaurant was once owned by Moby, and predictably, serves exclusively vegan fare. That doesn’t mean it’s boring though. You won’t find endless variations of raw salads and green juices on the menu here.

Using only the finest produce, and with an impressive selection of natural wine, this laid-back spot is great for a casual brunch or dinner with friends.

4. Alimento

Alimento is a Silver Lake staple serving up some of the most delicious Italian food you’ve ever eaten. Headed up by James Beard-nominated chef Zach Pollack, Alimento is a quaint and cozy little bistro with amazing wines and pasta to die for. It’s one of the pricier options on this list, but we’re sure you’ll find it’s most definitely worth every cent.

5. Ceviche Project

This tiny little restaurant contains an extensive and inspiring menu of Latin American inspired seafood dishes. Critics and everyday patrons alike rave about the amazing flavor combinations and fresh ingredients produced by chef Octavio Olivas. A great choice for an intimate dinner or date night.

Food for the Food Lover
