Happy Monday! We are already halfway through summer. Can you believe that? Summer is my favorite season because there is so much to do. I love being outside as much as possible during the summertime. That’s why today I’m sharing my essential gear guide for the beginner backpacker!
We just went on our first real backpacking trip about a month ago. We planned our trip for about a year in advance. We actually intended to go on the trip last summer, until my husband broke his foot and we weren’t able to go. But it worked out. Delaying our trip meant that we were able to do a TON of research on the best essentials for beginner backpackers like us. That means I did all the work in tracking down the best essentials so you don’t have to! Check out my picks below the break!
