I'm Going Backpacking!

Time for an escape! My friend Dawson invited me to go backpacking with him for three days in Riding Mountain National Park (at the end of May). I'm very excited! I've never tried backpacking before; that combined with the fact that I'm completely out of shape and don't have decent boots should make the trip deliciously eventful. I've never quite understood backpackers with their ounce-counting zeal but I look forward to experiencing this slow-moving way of the wilderness. FYI, reserved backcountry campsites are $9 a night per person in the park, not a bad deal really. Stay tuned for a review of the trail (beginning of June) and if you have any backpacking advice, it would be much appreciated!

May Light increase!
