So i have only been hiking for a little over a year and I am going on my first solo overnight. I have been wainting to go on a solo hike for sometime and since my girlfriend is having people over well its time, Plus i get to try out my new pack as well. I am looking forward to my solo overnight because I really want to do more then just one night solo, but i guess baby steps r best. I am only planning on doing 10 miles or so but the real test will be at night. This trip is to see how i manage at night. I have never been in the woods by my self at night and when your hiking solo everything changes. I cant wait till this weekend leaving sat morning.
