For the most part, planning an upcoming trip is insanely fun. There’s the initial thrill of choosing the destination, followed by a series of Google Images binges during which you drool over the scenery that’s about to be part of your future for five days, and then, yes, the completely necessary online shopping wish list you create in prep for your getaway. But then reality kicks in—and by reality I mean the whole paying for the vacation thing—and a tiny little part of you dies inside. Of course, there are already tons of tried-and-true ways to score cheap deals and travel on a budget, but they still involve you forking over your hard-earned cash to someone else—until now.

No, I’m not talking about robbing your hostel or dining and dashing. I’m talking about hackpacking: (safely) working the system so you make your vacation pay for itself. Here’s how to do it.
