Happy New Year!!
I’ve never been one for New Year’s Resolutions, but I like to at least sit down and think about some of the things I would like to do in the new year. So I put together a list of just a few of my goals for this 2013 backpacking year.
1. Get both my Hammock and Ground backpacking Fall/Spring gear lists below 10 lbs and officially hit Ultralight status for 3 season backpacking! This is something I’m really close to getting. I would have hit it in 2012 but after moving and changing jobs it just didn’t happen, but my list of things I need to make it, is pretty short.
2. Increase the number of day hikes and backpacking trips by at least 50%. This is something I’ve been really unhappy I haven’t been able to achieve in 2012 and I’m putting my foot down this year. I’m the only thing holding me back from this and I will spend more time in the great outdoors!
3. Make even more of my own gear. I have sewn my whole life and I’m pretty handy at making my own gear so it has been something I have wanted to do more of lately.
So there are a few of the things I’d like to accomplish this year. How about you?
