Get comfortable using all of your safety and survival equipment and practice using it the correct way. It is not the time to start learning how to navigate with a compass and map after you are already lost. It`s not the time to learn how to start a fire with a 6 year old flare you`ve been carrying forever in your pack. It`s not time to learn about safe rafting and best survival practices after you`re in danger. Put aside some time to learn about all the features of your camping gear before you head out to your favorite campground. You might be surprised to learn how incredible your GPS really is once you understand how to use the backtrack feature. You will also be mighty thankful when you learn the proper weight distribution for your backpack. Take time to learn about your camping gear - practice around your home before you venture into the great outdoors.
Hiking is an affordable outdoor activity to relax and enjoy. If you have long vacations then you can plan on camping. Camping during hiking will increase your adventure and enjoyment. For camping you need to plan well before leaving. Decide you destination and finalize the checklist of the required items before leaving for hiking and camping.
Personally I have an external frame Jansport pack and I have a friend that owns a pack made by Stansport. I have not had any problems with the Jansport pack although I have read about some models that had shoulder strap problems. Stansport is a cheaper brand but the quality of their products seems good. There are many other manufacturers including Coleman. Too many to mention by name here. Conclusions Some people avoid camping and outdoor activities due to the expense of purchasing such gear. Fortunately there are a wide range of choices in different price ranges. In any case a good backpack will last many seasons and so if you buy the right one it is a nice investment in your own health. Backpacking and hiking are a great way to get into shape and enjoy God`s country.
Purchase the best survival and adventure gear you can possibly afford. If you are willing to spend months carefully planning your next vacation adventure spending hours getting into great hiking shape take three weeks off from work for you camping experience purchase an airline ticket and so forth - then why are you using the least expensive backpack and hiking boots you can find? A good pair of hiking boots and socks will make all the difference in the world. This applies to all of your camping gear. Whether it`s your GPS unit rafting gear sleeping bag rain gear or dual-fuel portable stove set your budget to carry the best outdoor equipment you can afford - in order to get the most value for your money.
