There are so many reasons to camp alone that it is tough to narrow them all down. The most important thing to remember about solo camping is safety. Start small with a day or two to get accustomed to it. When you do go out, make sure you let your family, friends, or someone know what area you will be hiking and camping in. Another important thing to remember is this: Enjoy! It is anyone’s adventure out there so it’s up to you to make it your own.



Quiet, Quiet, and more Quiet

The wilderness is quiet but when you bring someone along that quiet goes away. When you’re out there by yourself, there is no one to complain about how hot it is or how bad their feet hurt. It’s just you and your surroundings. The only noises you will hear is your own breath, a mountain lion’s breath, or the wind bending trees. Whatever it is, it’s better than a whiny friend gasping for air.
