Let`s dive into some of the specifics on what we covered above: If you plan on camping through your hike- Get a good quality tent. Be sure to consider the size and quality. You will want a good rainfly. Don`t make the mistake I made once and get a tent based on how it looked cool. You want function over fashion any day. You also will want a small tarp to place under the tent to help keep the tent floor dry. You can also use this as a rain cover should you get caught in a storm during your hike. A roll of duct tape and some seam sealer are always good to have should your tent form some leaks or a seam split. I learned that the hard way. For sleeping at night a good sleeping bag and a roll to lay it on is great idea. Be sure to decide on what best fits your needs. Each bag is rated for various temperature conditions. The pad is to roll out under the under the sleeping bag to not only provide some comfort but to create another moisture barrier. If you bag gets wet it almost impossible to dry it out during your hike.
Hiking and Camping Arrangements - Understand that hiking does not typically need reservations but to cover your bases make them in case you decide to stay overnight especially at a hiking park or public campground. The earlier you make your appointment the better because it gives you some choices as to where you can stay. The campground will typically let early birds choose their own spots. So with everything you know about the two and why they go together why are you not packing some food and some clothes and get started on your expedition? Talk with those who will be joining you see how many will jump at the chance to do both.
Rucksacks The principle feature of this type of pack is that it closes with a drawstring at the top. Otherwise it is just like any other small backpack. There are many fashionable rucksacks for everyday use but not so many these days designed for hiking and backpacking. So let us move on. Day Packs This refers to just about any backpack that is too small to use for over-night backpacking. Kids these days often use them to carry their school books in moms use them as diaper bags and I know quite a few software engineers who use them instead of briefcase. They are really quite versatile.
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.
