A camping list for backpacking is very different from a general camping checklist. These lightweight backpacking essentials are created just for your comfort.
Backpacking camping gear needs to meet all you basic needs AND be carried on your back!
Your needs will include shelter, a warm place to sleep, a "camping kitchen", food, clothing and a first aid kit.Get a copy of Camping Minnesota: A Comprehensive Guide to Public Tent and RV Campgrounds
These solo tents feature a minimalist set up capability when the optional ground cloth is purchased. This creates a shelter using only the rainfly and ground cloth, allowing the adventurer to go light and still be covered.
Double-layered, offset quilted construction means there will be no cold spots.
A sleeping bag with an adjustable contoured hood and chest baffle locks in body heat and a trapezoidal footbox one some tents is ergonomically curved to fit natural foot position.
One of the reasons we love camping in Minnesota, or anywhere, is that camping is life stripped to the most basic of physical provision...and backpacking ups the ante even further.
The focus shifts from possessions to appreciation of nature and its wonders.
Half the challenge, and the fun, is to see how little it takes of what we consider to be the "essentials of life" to supply our basic needs.
