Bag Night Challenge: 2021

For a couple of years I have been keeping track of all my ‘bag nights’ and then posting the total at the end of the year on my microBLOG. Last year I’ve decided to try changing things up a bit and kept a running total throughout the year posted on this page and I think it worked out pretty well, so I’m going to continue doing that.

If you are interested in checking out my previous year totals, you can find those below:

This friendly competition of keeping track of ‘bag nights’ started a number of years back on the forum at Backcountry Post, and I follow the very simple ground rules that were set up over there:

There are no official rules, but a bag night here is typically defined by a night out camping in some form. It doesn’t matter if you sleep on a tarp, in a tent, or in the back of your vehicle. It’s more of an attitude thing. If you are outside to enjoy nature, if it’s camping, then it’s a bag night.
