I want to start by saying this – solo backpacking isn’t for everyone – it’s mostly for people who are confident and comfortable enough to venture out into the world and experience everything it has to offer without having someone to share that experience with.
I’m sure that if you talked to any hiker, they could tell you the exact hike that led to hiking becoming more than just a hobby. There is almost always one hike that will turn the hobby into a passion and lifestyle.
This time last year I was your average 30-year-old: disillusioned with what I thought would be my dream job, hemorrhaging money to cover food and rent, and trying desperately not to grow up. Sound familiar?
