Welcome to Backcountry Basics

This site started out as a way to share my love of the outdoors, and hopefully in some small way encourage others to spend more time there. Check out one of the articles underneath to get started, or if there is a specific topic you'd like to learn more about, click on the activities tab. Thanks for reading!
