Hey whats up everyone? I am new to the forums and new to many of the things that cover Backpacking. I have been hiking a few times and really enjoy it. I grew up in the outdoor such as camping and fishing. I am planning a 44 mile hike next year in Montana, and have started my training process for it. Just want to make sure I dont break down on the first day.

If you have any info on what I can do to get ready, such as: training, gear, food, any ideas will help. Thanks for the help.
