The stillness of the Autumn was preparing for the harsh Winter. The leaves had dropped to ground and formed mulch, ready to protect the soil, the roots.
Even the tumultous river had accepted its fate and ebbed down, ready to freeze. Squirrels had dissappeared; birds were scarce. Walking down the streets, everything is bare.
New seasons and changes; some people say its unsettling, daunting.
Yet, that day, as we sat beneath the once-upon-a-time canopy of trees, gazing in silence at the magical colours of the sky, stillness sunk within. It wasn’t unsettling; it was time to rest before Spring came and life renewed again.
Why solo backpack? Sometimes you just want to score some solitude in the great outdoors. But also mountain weather forecasts can change in an instant and not all of your buddies can reschedule their vacation days last minute. So I guess no breathtaking mountain views for you... or... you can trek that epic wilderness solo!
But wait, your family and friends would never let you hike those treacherous trails by yourself. What if you twist an ankle, run out of food, or get mauled by a ferocious squirrel!
The Spot Gen3 will help you successfully backpack on your own and give family and friends peace of mind that you're safe and sound. Check out my latest blog post. Link is in the bio. You'll be independently hitting the trails in no time.
