Backpacking Advice from Joe

I’ve been thinking, and realized today that I haven’t posted anything about lessons or skills that I have acquired since I’ve been on the trail. I just wanted to share two essential tips that every backcountry hiker should follow:

Smilin’ Joe’s backcountry rule #4:

Wear bright colors so you won’t get shot

Smilin’ Joe’s backcountry rule #5

Always, ALWAYS know the numbers to nearby pizza places that deliver to state parks

Following these two simple rules will make yourbackcountry trek more safe and enjoyable. 😛
