    When you travel away from your campsite for whatever reason, such as to gather food. Do you leave your backpack with supplies or do you pack everything up and carry it with you at all times?

    I can understand wanting to take everything with you but I would imagine the extra time needed to pack and unpack would be a waste. Thoughts?

    I forage on the trail before I make camp, no need to leave camp. Wood for the fire is easily collected around the camp area. If it is raining or wet from previous rain, then I forage for dry kindling on the trail before making camp. I would never risk leaving my pack or any other equipment where I could not keep eyes on it.
