Summer Backcountry Camping Gear Checklist

Posted by Scot Mills on Aug 23, 2018 2:26:44 PM

Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned veteran, there are few summertime activities so fulfilling as backcountry camping. After all, what's better than exploring the wilderness with everything you need strapped to your back?

"Backcountry camping" (also known as backpacking) means you'll be hiking deep into the wilderness and spending at least one night with the native flora and fauna. Backpacking requires preparation, since "winging it" in the backcountry can spell disaster. Remember, there aren't any convenience stores or ER's out there!

By outfitting with the right gear, your adventure can be as safe, comfortable, injury-free, and fun as possible. Make sure you check off all of the following items before you head out. Enjoy your trip!

To fully experience the outdoors more than just a day trip, camping is typically your best option. Camping can be as hard or as easy as you want to make it. Some people like to have a full day of hiking into the backcountry to ensure they are far enough away from civilization, while some like to be able to pull their car into a parking space and set up camp just a few feet away. Depending on your style, you may like to rough it as much as possible or have all the modern conveniences just a few feet away. Whichever camping style you identify with, there are a few ways to get the most out of your camping trip.

Okay, I’m all packed and off. Packing is always one of the worst parts of a camping trip. The next is un-packing, not really sure which is worse. Seems like I always forget something.

Labor Day Camping Adventures With Pugs Gear!

Posted by Nathan Miller on Sep 3, 2013 8:49:00 AM

This last weekend I got the opportunity to camp out in the Rockies with some of my good friends for a bachelor party, and it would've been a tough time without my Pugs! Instead of the typical bachelor party antics, my friend Adam wanted to spend his last weekend of bachelorhood out in the wild, hiking through the wilderness and grilling steaks. It was an awesome time getting away from the office and out into the fresh air. Every day brought a new hike and scenery and every evening filled the sky with stars. But it would've been a much tougher weekend if I didn't have a couple important items from Pugs!
