Newb from Indiana... Solo lady camper

I am going on a 5 day trip without my partner or dogs. I'll be camping alone and having to bring all of my own meals... Am I terrified? Yes. Am I thrilled?? Hell yeah!

Hi @Rebemomma - Welcome to the community! It's amazing to hear that you're heading out on your first solo camping trip!

I am a woman who has camped solo too and am so familiar with the nerves and excitement that comes along with it! 

You have found yourself in a great spot to ask any questions you have leading up to the trip. It would also be great to hear how it went once you are back from it! We're hopeful you'll find some valuable conversations on our camping board, as well as our Women in the Outdoors board. 

Here are some threads that you might fun helpful information in:

Feel free to share any questions you have here or any of the steps you've taken to prepare for your upcoming trip. It would be great to hear and learn from!

Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself. We're happy to have you here!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
