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.
Your camping gear isn`t just for outdoor adventure - keep your gear with you and use it as much as possible. It has unlimited uses in your daily life. Never go on a road trip without your outdoor pack. In all likelihood you`ll find an opportunity to use your camping - hiking - survival equipment close to home. It never fails - if you don`t have your camping gear with you you will need it.
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.
Hiking and Camping Costs - Another reason hiking and camping go together is the costs behind the both of them. Should you want to go camping paying for it as well as the hiking fee... if there is one... can be a way to save money by combining the two activities. Should you make a corollary or rather a reservation at a public setting like a campground park it is likely you will see a hiking trail... which you can do for free. The reverse may also be true. Should you visit a hiking park and it takes you a while to hike it is possible you can stay overnight at the park free of charge. All these activities depend on where you go and what the campground is like can be free. Do some research before embarking on you trip.
