Today on the First 40 Miles, remember that BLM land we talked about in episode 131—we have some exciting news to share! A clean up group in Oregon has scheduled a clean up there—and you’re all invited! Then, we’ll teach you how to get street cred on the trail without having to roll up your pant leg and show any raccoon bite marks. Next on the SUMMIT Gear Review, will the inflatable insanity ever end? And a Backpack Hack that will keep you clean.
Today on the First 40 Miles, everyone needs a favorite backpacking spot—and you know what makes it even better? If it’s a top secret backpacking spot. On today’s top 5 list, we’ll break down our plans to make our off-grid backpacking Shangri-La even better. Then, a collapsible cookware set that takes up about a tenth of the space that a traditional set would. And we’ll answer every backpacker’s burning question about whether or not to bring your Snuggie on your next outdoor adventure. The answer is no. But we’ll give you an equally good option on today’s Backpack Hack of the Week.
