For Backpackers

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
 

This helpful information for getting started with backpacking was originally authored by a former T777 scout named Devon.

He got most of his information from the following sources:
  • The Backpackers Field Manual by Rick Curtis
  • Outdoor Survival Skills Sixth Edition by Larry Dean Olsen
  • The Fieldbook by the Boy Scouts of America.

Devon summarized portions of these books and highly recommends reading them if you want to learn more!
