How to Pack a Backpack

When it comes to experiencing the outdoors, nothing beats backpacking. But carrying around all that gear on a trail isn’t easy. Here are some ways you can make it easier by packing the right way:

Once you have your pack loaded, adjust the waist belt and shoulder straps so that most of the weight rides on your hips. Don’t try to carry the pack with your muscles. Throughout the day, you can adjust the straps to shift the weight to ease any discomfort.

And leave the frozen chicken at home 🙂
