Getting Away From It All


Mike OBrien has been backpacking for over 20 years. He often spends
up 30 days at a time outdoors. In a recent interview with outdoors magazine, he
offered some expert tips for new backpackers.
OM: Why do you spend so much time in wilderness?
MO: Backpacking and camping are my favorite things to do. It can get
difficulty at times, but I just love getting away from it all.
OM: What do all the beginners need to know?
MO: The two most important things to know are how to dress comfortably and
how to pack your equipment well.
OM: How should people dress for backpacking?
MO: They need to understand the purpose of outdoor clothing. Clothes need to
keep you warm in the cold, block the wind and keep you dry in the rain.
In hot environments, clothes should also protect you from the sun. You
dont have control over the weather or the temperature. So you should
dress in tight layers of clothing. That way, if you are hot, you can take off
the clothes. And if you are cold, you can add clothes.
OM: And how should they pack for a trip?
MO: Access and balance are the keys to packing well. First, access, dont bury
things you need such as extra clothes, food or water at the bottom of
your back pack. Second, balance, remember, you are going to wear your
backpack. It has to be balanced or you could fall over! Dont make your
pack too heavy at the top or bottom. Its best to keep the heaviest items
close to your back.
OM: Any final words?
MO: Yes, have fun. Thats the only reason to do it!
