There is absolutely nothing more refreshing than leaving behind the rat race of city life and the tedium of a long work week in the office for a weekend adventure in the wilderness. From finding that perfect camping spot on a cliff looking longingly towards the setting sun, lounging lazily by a peaceful river as you wait for the mountain trout to bite your line promising a delectable dinner of smoked fish, or hiking madly through thick forest to burn off all of that extra, pent up energy, getting into the wilderness is soothing for the soul, calming for the mind, and a great way to reconnect with what´s truly important in life.
For those of us who aren´t content to simply hit a day hike before begrudgingly returning to the monotony of our urban existence, backpacking offers the best way to get outdoors and stay outdoors; at least until Monday morning rolls around. To truly enjoy your backpacking adventures, however, you need to have the right gear. A quality sleeping bag and good tent will offer you a home away from home, no matter where you head.
