Before setting out on a camping or hiking trip do your homework. Know the area you intend to travel to become familiar with area maps and if possible learn to use a compass. Plan your trip thoroughly let others know where you are going and when you plan to return. Never travel alone there is safety in numbers travel with companions.
Well it`s summertime again and that can only mean that for most of us it is a time to get out and enjoy some fun in the sun. Now while many of you might head to the beach for that annual sunburn most of us would prefer the fun and freedom of hiking and camping the great outdoors. No matter whether it is waking to the sounds of birds chirping on a crisp mountain morning or the being lulled to sleep by crickets on a starry night. Hiking and camping can be one of the nicest ways to really come to understand the wilderness. You might choose to hike in the mountains or valleys visiting waterfalls or other famous landmarks and camp in the woods maybe near a river. Either way just be certain to properly prepare for both and don`t make the same mistakes I have made in the past.
The Kelty Blanca 2000 Hydration Fastpack is a really nice choice if you decide to go with one of these. For the cost-conscious Stansport sells the Slick Rock Hydration Back Pack. Frame Packs If you are hiking out into the woods and then camping there over night you will need a larger backpack. This is where frame packs come in. The word frame refers to the fact that there is something inside or on the outside of the pack that helps the pack maintain its shape. There are two types: internal frame and external. Size and Weight You can also get backpacks for smaller people such as the Coyote 4750 Trail Internal Backpack. This pack is hydration-compatible which means that you can add a water bladder whereas the Tornado has it built in. Also there are backpacks made to be very light such as the hydration-compatible Kelty`s Illusion 3500 Ultralight Backpack which is just 3 lbs 7 oz. Brands I have mostly mentioned Kelty backpacks because they are among the best but there are many other brands worth looking at.
Equally important are hiking and trail boots which protect our feet. These must be chosen with great discretion as the wrong shoes or boots can cause blisters and sores on the feet. Bootbay and Shoe buy have a truly amazing collection of hiking and trail boots which are shipped free to all customers.
