Backpacking Trip Information

Backpacking Trip Information For Home And Abroad. Includes EBook And Audio Information For Great Wilderness Adventures In Hiking And Backpacking.Once you get started, you will wonder why you waited so long to explore this beautiful planet, improve your stamina and physical strength, and experience the beauty and solitude of the wilderness!
I spend at least one weekend a month backpacking and all of my vacations take me to back country, wilderness and/or exotic locales. And it doesn’t cost me much at all!
The truth is that you can see the world for a lot less than you ever imagined!
You just need a little help and information to get you started.
Maybe you think you can’t afford the equipment?
Maybe you think you have to be in great shape, and you can never imagine getting to that point?
Perhaps you have watched friends go off on their own adventures and come back with beautiful photographs and enough great stories to fill a book? Down sleeping bags take up less space and are easier to carry if you are backpacking. They are easy to clean and you can put them in the dryer on warm air and fluff them back to just like new.
Synthetic or nylon sleeping bags are cheaper to purchase.Nylon sleeping bags take wear and tear well and will stay warm even when they are wet.They are the most popular sleeping bags for the weekend camper.The one thing I noticed when camping with a nylon bag is that they tend to be noisy when sleeping and you role over to change positions.I prefer a bag that has a cotton outer lining they are quiet especially if your sleeping on a cot.
Make sure to inspect your sleeping bag before you buy it.Check to see if you like a sleeping bag that has a zipper on the right or left side.Check the length of the bag to make sure it is long enough a short sleeping bag will be uncomfortable to sleep in.

How to survive in the wilderness

Few activities provide anywhere near as much benefit for people. Hiking and backpacking can improve one's life mentally, physically and spiritually.An ordinary trash bag can collect gallons of fresh water for you! (without it raining) So don't leave it out of your survival kit! You will now become one of the few who know this secret!
Large leafy green trees provide 100's of gallons of water per day through a process known as 'transpiration'.We just do not see it because of 'evaporation'!
How To Collect It: Insert a large (green) leafy tree limb inside of the trash bag.
(Be Sure To Leave The Branch Attatched To The Tree, You Would Be Amazed
Then secure the opening of the trash bag tightly to the limb with the leafy branch inside the trash bag. This stops the evaporation process. Now leave it alone throughout the rest of the day and night. (approx.10-14 hrs.) When you remove the trash bag from the limb you will find a tasty treat for your thirst inside!
There are so many nuances to survive a situation, yet all them are so simple to pull off. But if you don't know this stuff...you might be left floundering about in real time wishing you had prepared for the situation you have just found yourself in!This guide stresses the importance of pre-planning for survival.Three Full Survival scenarios are covered.Wilderness,Open Water,Natural Disasters.!

How To Make A Potato Gun

Check out the potato gun site and build one yourself. Promotional sports cannons: Portable pneumatic cannons which run on bottled CO2 are common at large sports games in the U.S. where they are used to project items such as T-shirts or wrapped food into the audience. They tend to be made of higher quality materials than an average pneumatic spudgun but they use the same methods of operation.
Special effects cannons: In film and theatre productions pneumatic cannons are often used as a pyrotechnic-free method of material projection. These can vary from simple ball valve, manually operated models to electronically triggered designs operated from a remote control panel depending on the exact requirements.
