Why I Don't Stress About Base Weight

Base Weight is a topic you'll see backpackers talk about all the time, especially on the internet. While I believe it's important to find ways to cut the weight of my pack, some things are more important to me than being "ultra-light." I hope this video encourages you to find what works for you and helps you avoid feeling pressure to take things out of your pack you really enjoy just for the sake of having a low base weight.

Cold Weather Hiking Clothes

Cold Weather Hiking Clothes As I live and recreate in Oregon, I feel I have learned a lot about dressing right for outdoor fun in the cold fall and winter time. The cold and wet weather lasts for about 8 months in Oregon, so I have a lot of cold weather clothing. Please feel free to comment below if you have any questions.
