Two mile test hike in the neighborhood #sierraclub #backpack

In preparation for an overnight Sierra Club backpacking trip, I took a full pack on a two mile walk in the neighborhood. How cool is it to carry everything you need to live outdoors on your back?

The first mile was a loop, because I quickly realized hiking while walking the dog is slow. My second mile loop was thirty minutes, without a dog. It’s slow going with 30 lbs on your back! I kept adjusting the weight and the position of the pack to make it more comfortable. I also did some hula hooping, yoga, and stretching at the end.

What do you think?
