Just for fun: If you could travel back in time and give your younger self one really good piece of backpacking related advice based on your experiences over the years, what would it be?
I think I'd tell myself to look at a career path that would allow me work outdoors and become an advocate for protecting all of the magnificent places that we enjoy playing in. Oh and I'd probably warn my 11-year-old (stupid) self about the dangers of falling out of tall trees!
How about you?
