20 thoughts you’ve definitely had while backcountry camping

I’ve always believed that a backpacking trip is the best way to get to know somebody. You see them at their smelliest, grossest, hungriest, crankiest, and most real. You get the chance to experience pure joy through their eyes, true fear, exhaustion, simple raw emotions.

Its freakin’ great. That’s why this list is so relatable. If you’ve ever been camping in the backcountry, you’ve definitely had these thoughts before…

1. When was the last time I brushed my teeth?
