Hello @kimbur96, there are quite a few of us solo backpackers around here. I include myself in that group. I could write a bunch more, but I'll refer you to another discussion we've started here.

http://backcountrypost.com/threads/tips-for-solo-backpacking.762/

Hope you find it helpful!

Beyond that, maybe you have some specific questions we can answer.
