When you are backpacking you are visiting places that are usually not close to home, which requires that you have all the essentials you will need to be carried in a backpack.  Backpacking is an experience that is loaded with fun and excitement in being able to get back in touch with nature.  It will help to guide you beyond the four walls of work or home to venture beyond the box so to speak.

The length of time that you choose to go backpacking is entirely up to yourself, some people choose to go for one day while others go for months.

When you have finally decided where it is that you want to do your backpacking.  You must decide on a date of your departure and when you are going to be returning.  It is really important to keep in mind the time of year you will be traveling as this will effect the type of gear you will be packing in your knapsack.  It is always a good idea to bring extra of everything just to be prepared in case the weather turns nasty.  This is very crucial when you are backpacking, being prepared for the worse is always a smart approach.

Once you have decided where and when you are going you need to decide what mode of transport you are going to use to get to your destination.  Will you travel by plane, train, automobile, ship, you will need to book your tickets if needed as soon as possible.  It is always a good idea to book your hotel ahead of time so that you know you have a place to stay when you get to your destination.  It is much better than standing in a hotel lobby hoping that they can find a room for you.

You can always just book the first night then you can spend the first day scouting for a hotel that is cheaper if you are not happy with the cost of the first hotel.  By booking your tickets well in advance you may have a better chance of getting a better deal on your ticket price.  You should compare the prices and deals being offered for the individual airlines that are going to your destination.  Ask around to find out a good hotel that offers good rates in the area.   Check out the local tourist office this would be a good spot to gather some good information on the area where you want to go backpacking.

If you are driving to your backpacking destination then make sure that your car is in good working order before you head off on your trip.  You can save a lot of money by using public transport as much as possible.  If you have a fixed date for your return then you can also arrange for your transportation when it is time to go home.
