Backpacking with dogsEveryone has their own preference when it comes to backpacking, some people love to go ultralight, some are more in it for comfort, and others want practical. For backpacking with a dog, being prepared without over packing is my main goal. Below, I have my list of items I consider essentials and would never leave the house without when backpacking with my dog Goose. 1.) Dog backpack I am aware not all dogs can carry a backpack either for size or age of the dog, but if your dog is healthy enough then I say take advantage of it!

I am truly thankful for my family this year.   2) Eat as much as you can There is absolutely nothing like home cooking. I think I miss my moms cooking more than anything else from home.

For outdoor enthusiasts, there are endless possibilities when it comes to planning a July 4th celebration. Here are 5 ways you can celebrate America’s birthday outside: White Water Raft.  Many rafting companies all across America have special July 4th trip discounts and package deals that include pre- and/or post-trip music, parades, meals, games, and fireworks. After a day out on the river, you can kick back and celebrate into the night with your fellow rafters! Go to a Music Festival.  There are quite a few festivals scheduled for the July 4th weekend. Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, and High Sierra Music Festival in Quincy, CA are some of the larger ones, but there are always smaller local festivals to check out!
