True North Blog

True North featured in Backpacker

True North is very pleased to share that it is mentioned in the September 2013 issue of Backpacker.

This nationally distributed magazine features a wide array of information and articles focused on wilderness hiking and adventure.  First published in 1973, it has since become one of the leading journals in the outdoors industry.

Erik was interviewed in May, and then again in June, for two articles related to water.  One focused on filtration and purification of water, while the other on finding it using land navigation skills.  You can check out his remarks regarding one of them in the Skills section under Instant Upgrades “Pro Tips” on page 44-45.

But we’ve just so happened to provide a copy of it below!

We certainly would like to thank Backpacker for the shout out, but we especially want to thank all of our friends, partners, and, most definitely our clients, who really made this possible.

After all, True North works very hard to be your source for wilderness skills training.
