After all the many years of camping and hiking I've done, I had never had a true backcountry overnight until this past summer. Jesse and I had been slowly collecting lightweight gear over time -- gear is expensive! -- and we finally felt like we had enough support to endure our first overnight.
One of the things that makes me the most upset in the outdoor world is finding litter. I can't fathom it and will never be able to wrap my brain around the thought process of someone who carelessly drops their trash on our sacred world.
