Walking into the wilderness with a pack on your back is an empowering experience—all the more so when that pack on your back isnt weighing you down. Thats where this book comes in. Outdoors expert and celebrated illustrator Mike Clelland offers advanced techniques on how to pack light without sacrificing the essentials or your safety yet staying well fed and comfortable.

* Make your own stuff, and making it out of trash is always the best!

* Its okay to be nerdy.

* Try something new each and every time you go camping.

* Know the difference between wants and needs.
