My business partner, Matt, and I have decided to challenge ourselves to twelve consecutive months of camping at least one weekend per month. Our goal is not to just “car camp” but to explore backcountry trails, fish fresh, natural rivers and lakes, test survival skills, get back to nature and have a good time. Matt and I have grown up camping, but neither of us have any experience in backcountry, dispersed camping. So, in Standard Reliance fashion, we are taking individual responsibility to learn the skills necessary to not only survive, but to thrive on these expeditions. We will put together lists of what we are taking on each trip, review the gear we are using and refine our packs for future trips. We will look to create video tutorials on different survival techniques and gear reviews to help our readers learn from our fortunes and mistakes. Look for updates soon.
