The 7 Things You Need to Start Backpacking | Outside

The best way to get started with backpacking is by making sure you’ve packed all the right essentials. Outside contributor Bryan Rogala walks us through the items he brings on every adventure.

Of course, the first supply you need for any backpacking trip is fairly obvious: a backpack. Invest in one that’s sturdy enough to hold up during bad weather or rough conditions. Bryan recommends a 50-60 liter pack– large enough to fit all your essentials without getting too heavy. You’ll also need a two-person tent, 20-degree sleeping back, and sleeping pad to ensure you have a comfortable place to rest. Then, for the smaller (but equally important) items: Pick out a high quality backpacking stove for cooking on the trail, bring some moleskin for blisters, find a comprehensive trail map of the area you’re visiting, and (last but not least) fill a small bottle with whiskey for some post-hiking relaxation.

Epic Backpacking Trail in Papua New Guinea | Trackin’ Dirt

When it boils right down to it, Papua New Guinea (PNG) is one of the most interesting locations I’ve ever travelled to. Although I had an idea of what to expect, like the endless miles of beautiful and challenging terrain, I was blown away by what lay in store for us.

Of all the things to say about PNG, the amazingly rich culture is what really stood out to me. Getting to know the locals, dance with them and celebrate with them, was truly an honor and is something I will remember forever. I am so excited to share my experiences with you in the first episode of our latest series, Trackin’ Dirt!

˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜
It's mid July and I met up with 4 other guys to do a five day tour through Utah's Uinta Mountains. Myself, Tim Watson, Josh Ebersol, Josh Herod and Wasatch Will got together to do a loop through the western section of the High Uintas Wilderness.
The route included starting at the Mirror Lake TH and hiking south toward the West Fork of the Duchesne River. From there we made our way to the north side of Grandaddy Basin, passing by Pinto Lake and Governor Dern Lake. We then worked our way through and past Four Lakes Basin where we climbed over Rocky Sea Pass to do a tour of Rock Creek Basin. Finally we finished the route on the Highline trail back to the car passing by Naturalist Basin.
All in all we ended the trip with nearly 40 miles of trail hiked, and a great experience together as a group of like minded guys enjoying the wild of Utah!

Hobo Stew in 4 Ingredients, Backpacking Food w. Melissa Miller

My Instagram:
Official Site:

Upon finishing my upload i noticed I spelled potatoes as potatos. Oops.

Product Links:

Coleman Party Pail Charcoal Grill:
ROGAN USA Survival Chisel:
FFS Survival Knife:
TC Fire-Resistant Cookware Set:

Hobo Stew:
1 onion
2-3 potatoes
1 summer sausage
1 can Maple Cured bakes beans


*You can also use a pound of ground beef instead of the summer sausage but the summer sausage is great because it is portable and can be carried in your backpack without refrigeration.

1.) Slice potatoes, boil 15-20 minutes until soft
2.) Slice onions and sauté for 5–10 minutes, add salt and pepper
3.) slice sausage, add to onions, cook additional 2 minutes
4.) heat up baked beans, drain potatoes and add all together
5.) Enjoy!

Backpacking the Badlands of SD

This video documents a two day, solo backpacking trip into the Sage Creek Wilderness of the Badlands National Park. There are no established trails. You set your own path and route. And there is no water on the trail that can be safely filtered, so one is required to pack in water. This adds considerable pack weight and limits the range and time one can be out in this beautiful wilderness.
