Backpacking Tips

Knowledge saves weight.you can leave the rainwear home (except for a 2-ounce emergency poncho) if you are in the eastern Sierra Nevadas in September. You can just about leave the sleeping bag behind on summer trips in some parts.
Socks, especially if they are thicker, make good water bottle insulators when you want to keep your water cold or hot. This is assuming you use regular plastic soda bottles for water, as I do.
You should also avoid setting up camp at obvious animal watering holes.

Hmmm, are you new to wilderness survival or backpacking? Usually, there is a lot more information posted about this subject than what is here.
