A friend and I have decided to go backpacking tomorrow. My dad has 400 acres of river bottom land, half of which is entirely woods. So, we are gathering tents, food and what little necessities we can carry on our backs and journeying 15+ miles into the woods. So far our plans are to start out tomorrow afternoon and walk about 6 miles into nature, as far away from civilization as we can get, set up camp, then cook dinner over an open fire. We're going old school, preparing all of our food on the journey, no freeze dried foods or instant meals. Then we will continue the walk when we wake up the next day, and continue hiking for a couple days. But who knows, we may stay out there for a week. We want to get in touch with nature, smoke some bud, and do a bit of soul searching. Anyone else do this? I find that it is a really good experience to get out and find yourself within natures boundaries.
