Camping With Backpacks: A Dialogue with Nature

Nov 29, 2007
You have so many different options, where camping is concerned. You can go in for a family cabin, which is a part of a resort and has all the amenities you require, like a kitchen with all the modern appliances. If this is not your definition of camping, there are many campsites for you where you can even take your four-wheeled drive, right upto the camping area. Still not satisfied? You might think what is camping without wilderness? If you are such a brave soul who believes in discovering new things by going into the deepest recesses of nature, you need to carry all your food, camping gear and other basic necessities with you. And in order to carry all these, the best bet would be a good backpack. However, before going camping with backpacks, careful thought needs to go into selecting the backpacks.

There are many companies these days, which manufacture backpacks that are ideal for such camping. However you need to keep a few things in mind before selecting the right backpack for this sort of camping. The foremost thing is to buy a backpack, which has a hydration system built into it. When you have a parched throat after trekking for miles to the campsite, with such heavy load on your back, clean and cool water will be like refreshment for both your body and soul. There must also be separate sections in your backpack for emergency items. These include first-aid kits and mobile phones, if there is network in the camping area. Such measures are essential, not because camping with backpacks is not safe, but because one must take all the precautions beforehand. Since you have to carry this backpack on your shoulders, all throughout the trek, there must be a sturdy comfortable strap on the backpack, for your shoulders and back. And if the backpack has a waist strap in addition to these straps, that is an added advantage as a backstrap would ensure minimum movement of the backpack and thus would reduce chaffing.

It is a much better idea to carry a sleeping bag instead of a tent. If however, you do decide to carry a tent with you, one man or two man models are the bet. In case you forgo the tent in favor of the sleeping bag, make sure that your backpack has a strap with which the rolled up sleeping bag can be held securely.

Camping with backpacks is the best way to commune with nature. There are many reasons why people who are experts at this sort of camping, continue going for such trips year after year. Some of them find this an ideal opportunity to be away from the modern amenities and technology and just enjoy their own company. Many others find camping with backpacks a way to truly have a dialogue with nature. One can really experience that feeling of tranquility when one is in the beauty of the wilderness. While camping with backpacks, one can enjoy the freedom of being on one's own, rather than be worried about being disturbed by the loud noises of your neighborhood campers or wait in the long queues for using the facilities at the campsite. While camping with backpacks, one is, in the true sense of the word, "free".
