Backpacking Packing Lists and Tips

Backpacking Packing Lists From a Guide

Trying to figure out what to pack can be frustrating and time-consuming.  You start second-guessing your decisions and become paralyzed on what you thought were simple decisions. 

I've taught many new backpackers and led a lot of trips. From my experience, most people just need a good list to get started.  

Even after years of trips, I still use a list every single time I head out. 

To help get new backpackers started, I've created packing lists for each season. I've aimed these lists at recreational backpackers heading out for a weekend trip.

This guide is aimed at explorers backpacking in the southeastern US -- hot, humid summers and winters down to about 10 degrees Fahrenheit with just a couple of inches of snow. 

What's Inside?

The book is broken down by season and includes: 

  • Season Specific Tips
  • A Packing List for each season (this is what I would pack or recommend - you can always modify based on your own preferences)
  • A Clothing List for each season (What to wear hiking, what to sleep in, what you'll need for camp)
  • A worksheet to help streamline your clothing decisions

AND -- you get 4 templates to help get you started creating your own packing list. 

  • 2 Microsoft Word
  • 1 Microsoft Excel
  • 1 Fillable PDF

Why Should You Trust Me?

I started my journey in 2017 so I remember being new and everyone throwing all their knowledge and "musts" at me. But I learned what works for me and that I sometimes have to say no thanks (and do a lot of smiling and nodding). 

For the past three years, I've been an outdoor guide, specializing in beginners and I see them going through the same things. 

I've seen the confusion, the bad decisions, and a few incredibly innovative ideas. 

My goal is for you to have what you need to be safe and have fun. 

Backpacking is an evolution. It's your journey so get out there and explore!
