    I’m an old camper. I’ve been camping since 1979 when I was 11 years old.
    I learned camping in scouting. And at 51, I still camp. Last week for one week. I was in Camp Aquahunga in Ten Mile River Scout Camps in Narrowsburg, New York.
    Of course for a week of camping. I had to pack a lot more. Therefore my pack was heavier.
    A roller bag suit case is not the answer. I thought about it. But a lot more heavier, and harder to manage.
    The pack might be heavy to get it on my back. But once it’s on my back. I’m okay.
    Anywhere in the woods is home.

    I’ll save space by not carrying bear bag and once I find bear we are gonna go and catch some more food together 😁

    You are sexy… but no deodorant :(?

  11. Sam Anderson on December 26, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    A bolt action rifle. An extra box of .270 Win. A pair of woodland camouflage briefs. And a Falkniven S1. That’s all you need.

  12. Kevinism A way of life on December 26, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    How many cooks will I get out of a fuel can like that? I just bought a pocket rocket II
    Thanks Kevin

    My dad and I started backpacking and he told me to watch your video. We just did one on my channel. I hope I get a lot of people like you!

  14. Alec Gentile on December 26, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    I would use these water filters ( my recommendation ) https://thewaterstraw.supply

  15. M. Hernandez on December 26, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    Never understood why so many backpackers use a baseball cap. 1/4 brim, no ear or neck protection. Why?

  16. Nghia Pham bizi on December 26, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    I have never seen this one before! Keep up your good work!

  17. kelsi fasano on December 26, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    Does anyone know what tank top she is wearing?

  18. TheOutdoorsyDude on December 26, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    Fun fact: A pot gripper (like the one she has) is technically called a spondonicle…do with that what you wish.

  19. Jose Rodriguez on December 26, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    A backpacker should know their distance and pack for the time spending outside.

  20. Marie Halle on December 26, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    most informative on youtube for beginners, more Mirands please.

  21. Kenneth Starr on December 26, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    It’s a bad idea to have a windscreen with a canister stove. 💥 🤯

  22. Discover Evolution on December 26, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    I always wonder why birds stay in the same place when they can fly – Check out my last video please..

  23. Robby Natividad on December 26, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    I saw her again! Nice review

  24. Breanna Wilcox on December 26, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Your toiletry bag is the perfect size. Where did you get it?

  25. Brown Body Vlogs on December 26, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    why does toothpaste have to go in the bear cannister

  26. Ding Dong on December 26, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    I really like that rug!!

  27. Errordemn6 on December 26, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Can I take you backpacking?

  28. Insomnia Carrera Nocturna on December 26, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    thanks . Great information

  29. America Amaro on December 26, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Love This

  30. Rock the Park on December 26, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    Great tips!

  31. santibanez91 on December 26, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    your videos are gret!

  32. Outdoor Enthusiast on December 26, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    What size backpack do you use?

  33. Don Atello on December 26, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    What’s a pee rag

  34. Jon Moon on December 26, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    Wow great info!

  35. vpankaj on December 26, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Thank you 😊

  36. Sean Brayton on December 26, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    One thing I think she may have missed or I wasn’t paying attention. What form of water filtration should a beginner have or start with. I’ve seen pump and I’ve seen the squeeze type. Help?!?

  37. Ricky T Rock Climbing on December 26, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    Aww, ur toes are cute, I like turquoise, why u hide them? :/ probably cuz all the PERVS that commented on her poop video!

  38. Alex Alexander on December 26, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    thank you

  39. Monica Z on December 26, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    Tell me more about the pee rag. Do you rinse it with water after every use to prevent it from smelling?

  40. Biaxal Meteor on December 26, 2020 at 10:48 pm

    Gearheads are mechanics. Thats confusing

  41. Marc-André B on December 26, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    Glad to see someone with a realistic weight for their pack.

  42. David Talley on December 26, 2020 at 10:52 pm

    5 things. Food, water, shelter, environmental conditions, in’s & outs. Think like NASA always have a backup in case of failure or something gets lost. I don’t think your hygene kit belongs in the brain since you only use it static (you go to bed and use it, then you wake up and use it). maybe I missed where toilet paper was but I think it’s a bulky, albeit light nessecity. Your kit is always gonna change but with the five fundamentals you can’t go won’t. plan ahead and prepare, take pics leave tracks. LNT.

  43. Steven Torrey on December 26, 2020 at 10:55 pm

    So what size backpack do you actually use? 40L, 60L?

  44. Clark Newsom on December 26, 2020 at 10:55 pm

    What sleeping bag is that?

  45. Rob Crowe on December 26, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    Leave the deodorant at home? 😲

  46. Aleksandar T on December 26, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    I like you to take you in my backpack…

  47. chris metcalf on December 26, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    No where can I find pack weight to body weight ratios. Like a person 175lb may be comfortable at 25lbs but someone, like me, who is 225lbs would feel comfortable with more. Any suggestions?

  48. Why-Phi on December 26, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    She has a back…. 🤔

  49. Zach Fabbian on December 26, 2020 at 11:00 pm

    Im going to be a doing a back-country trip for 6month. Gonna be living out of a backpack for 6Months this was a great video thank you. Is there any tips on how to properly store everything in your bag?

  50. southern country1993 on December 26, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    I prefer a glock 10mm instead of bear spray. Works so far
