Solo Hiking

Seattlebackpackersmagazine is a site that I hit all the time.  Lots of great info.

Liz Forster wrote the following post 7 Tips for a Successful Solo Trip.  It is a great read.

Hiking and camping can be some of the most peaceful, and often spiritual, activities. It reminds us to open our ears to every rustling leaf and chirping bird, gaze at more than just the ground in front of our boots and return to the core of why we love carrying a heavy backpack through the woods. As simple as walking in the woods can be, though, hiking and camping alone requires an additional self and outer awareness that group members usually supply. Here are some tips for embarking on your first or hundredth solo trip.
