The Plan

Every good adventure- big or small has a plan behind it. Whether it’s loosely defined or extremely detailed, a plan helps us connect with others, learn along the way and most importantly, prepare for our upcoming adventures.

Out&Back Outdoors understands that there’s more to planning than just gear (although it is really important), and that’s why we’ve created The Plan. It’s our version of a blog that provides you with additional tidbits for your upcoming outdoor adventures. So whether you’re looking for activity checklists, educational guides, local communities or destination ideas, we’ve got you covered. Happy Adventuring.
