Backpacking Essentials

Since the introduction of this blog, we've been asked several times what exactly this blog is about.  These days there are food blogs, craft blogs, design blogs, fashion blogs, travel blogs and pretty much anything else you can think of!  We love to dabble in a little bit of everything, so that's what you'll find here!  The future of Fireweed includes lots of DIY projects, recipes, inspiration, and tips and tricks that we've learned along the way.  If there's anything you'd like to see here, let us know!

To start things off, I (Amy) have made a backpacking essentials list!  I've come to learn that the right gear can make a trip in the backcountry enjoyable and easy.  So whether you've got a winter snowshoeing trip planned, or you're a fair-weather hiker, here's a few things to make sure you take with you:

Osprey pack
Outdoor research Virtuoso jacket
Steri pen
MSR Pocket Rocket
Marmot Limelight Tent
Salomon Quest backpacking boot
North Face Impervious jacket
