I usually indulge myself in a hearty cooked meal after I hike the whole day, and it is very comforting and fulfilling. However, I sometimes feel that preparing the meal can be inconvenient and time-consuming especially when I am worn out after all day of trekking; hence, I bring foods that do not require cooking on my outdoor adventures.
Even though I eat no cook backpacking meals most of the time during my adventures, I shall say that it feels like I am eating cooked foods because of the satisfaction that my no-cook meals provide. My secret is that I bring the ones that are scrumptious and contain nutrients that give long-lasting energy.
By your imagination and creative thinking, you can come up with numerous no-cook backpacking ideas that will be an additional enjoyment on your trip. In my case, I list my meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that do not require cooking in this article. These suggestions are all perfect for your next backcountry adventure.
I always enjoy outdoor adventures since I was a kid, especially when eating my favorite delicious gluten-free backpacking food. Since spending a lot of time on the trail always makes me feel hungry, I always get ready to experience an another exciting trip together with any of my gluten-free foods.
As a person with gluten intolerance who is enthusiastic with various outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and backpacking, eating foods that are gluten-free has always been a necessity for me as it always assures a more comfortable and stress-free adventure.

When I started doing outdoor activities such as hiking, backpacking, and camping, I had always been using a tent as my outdoor shelter. With my various adventure with it, I can say that I was always satisfied with what it provides me during my trek.
But one time, a friend of mine advised me to try bringing a hammock for my next hike. Since then, I shall say that I was always confused about what to bring for my next outdoor adventure.
If you have the same experience regarding hammock vs. tent, I suggest that you read this writing piece so that you would not get stumped by choosing which backpacking equipment is the best for you to bring.
The 3-season vs. 4-season tent debate has been one of the most interesting topics of many backpackers.
The difference is not complicated, but knowing how one is distinct from the other will surely save you a lot of money and regrets.
Are you planning to buy one but undecided which of these two is the best for you? If yes, keep reading as I have prepared some important points you have to consider before making an order.
If you are an outdoor enthusiast, I know you are aware that getting some sleep is very vital for your adventure. In other words, getting tired and needing to rest are some of the things that you may experience.
Once you do not sleep or ease up yourself in a tent, you may not enjoy your future activities as you might have no energy anymore.
Even though tents are invaluable especially during sudden weather changes, there are instances your reliable tent is leaking while you are taking a rest. Admit it or not, this inevitable matter can be an unpleasant situation especially if you do not know what to do.
It is true that when we go out for a backpacking trip, lots of energy gets vanished, especially with my friends and me. The main question which always keeps coming into my mind is that what I would cook after an adventurous and yet an exhausting day. Thus, the only answer I found to this problem is the best freeze dried food.
You must be wondering that why I am saying so?
Well! For every backpacker like me, a quick meal is very important to get back our lost energy. There are lots of options on the market for the freeze dried food. So, I pick up the one which is comfortable for backpacking and also has a longer shelf life.
Lots of people also have a misconception in their mind that freeze dried foods are not in good in taste.
Many people find venturing in the wild one of the most effective ways to relax and experience calmness and utmost peace of mind. As a person who loves this outdoor activity too, I can say that the said statement is a fact whether you are doing it during the winter season or cold windy night.
While snow and condensation in tent happen even to most experienced campers, hikers, and backpackers, there are a lot of things that you can do to avoid these inconvenient instances
In this article, I have listed several ways on how to stay warm in a tent and enjoy your next outdoor adventure even when there is rain, cold air or freezing temperature.
The zippers of your tent are as important as your tent itself. Fortunately, there are several tents that have durable zippers and that are available in the market. For instance, the best solo tent I have makes use of extra large #8 zippers.
Unfortunately, some have zippers that are, by nature, very delicate and which quickly breaks because of rust, corrosion, or wrong movement.
If this thing happens, do not panic because there are several ways on how to fix a tent zipper which I will explain and discuss further. As you read and come across each step, you will find out that these methods are very effective yet simple and easy-to-do.
The very first thing which I love to do in the holidays is going out for some camping or hiking. I always carry some amazing backpacking cooking appliances along with me.
