Product Description & Reviews
* Basic camping information followed by activity-specific advice * The only multi-activity camping book available * Covers trip preparation, site and equipment selection, and breaking camp No matter how you plan to enjoy the backcountry -- by foot, water, bike, or skis -- there are some basic steps to creating a home away from home. This manual will help you avoid mishaps and effectively plan the camping component of your trip. Gleaned from the life-time experiences of four Backpacker field experts, this compendium of advice, checklists, suggestions, priorities, rules of thumb, and special considerations presents the best from the best.Whether you're planning a two-week backpack on the Pacific Crest Trail, a week-long canoe trip in Upper Michigan, your first winter weekend in the snow, or a fat-tire tour through fall aspens, you'll want to know the drill. Learn how to select sites, arrange your kitchen, build a port-a-potty, pitch a tent, build a fire, and leave no trace. All the details of starting, making, and breaking camp are not created equal, so read what the experts have to say before leaving home. Hiking, biking, paddling, and skiing share a few common traits when it comes time to make camp. But they also have a number of unique concerns that need to be addressed. The authors of Making Camp--four field experts from Backpacker magazine--have done just that by dedicating a chapter to each pursuit. Steve Howe's backpacking chapter discusses the basics of trip planning with tips on food shopping, acquiring maps, pack essentials, and what items should remain at home. Alan Kesselheim's paddling chapter addresses water-travel specifics such as loading a boat and waterproofing bags. Dennis Coello equips your bike for heavy loads and suggests how to combine the proper saddle, shorts, and personalized seat angle for a comfortable in-saddle experience. Finally, John Harlin tackles the world of snow camping with tips on how to adjust to a world where everything is cold and inhospitable. He teaches you how to survive the elements with a variety of shelters, including a high-wind-proof tent, and how to delicately dig your first snow cave. --Benjamin Tiffany
