My Favorite Bushcraft and Backpacking Blogs

Here I’ve put together a list of the blogs that find myself visiting most often. They are not necessarily the “best” blogs out there, but for one reason or another, I end up reading them more often than the others. The reasons I like them vary from high amount of content, to provocative posts, to simply the fact that I respect the opinion of those writers, or a combination of all those factors.

You will notice that my list contains a good amount of lightweight backpacking blogs. I have separated the different kinds of blogs into categories for those who are offended by one approach or the other, but I strongly believe that there is a lot to learn from all the different approaches, if we could just stop being such “purists” for a minute or two.

In the end, these are just sites that I like. I’m sure you have a different list. If you look at the websites list on the right hand side of my blog, you will find even more blogs. I believe they are all good and provide good information. Some of them are no longer active, but still contain a wealth of knowledge. The above list is my selection from them. If you have any good blogs in mind, please let us know.
