When you talk about going camping more than likely you will also go hiking. The two are pretty much synonymous. Separately both have wonderful activities but together they are the perfect amalgamation. You may be speculating as to why camping and hiking seem to go together. There are numerous reasons why these two go hand in hand. They are both a wonderful way to spend a vacation. Everyone should give camping and hiking a try for the following four reasons.
Different companies provide different types and sizes of hiking gear. Camping and hiking gear mainly includes tents backpacks sleeping bags sleeping pads camp furniture cookware headlamps hiking poles flashlights clothing boots stoves insect repellents coolers and many other things.
Choosing a backpack for use on short hikes and walks is not difficult. Basically you want something that can easily carry the few items you will be taking on your hike along with some kind of water. These days there are backpacks that have built in water bladders or a pouch to add a water bladder. This is a nice idea but keep in mind that water is quite heavy. So if you are not sharing your water with another person you probably do not really need a full 2 liters of water for a one day hike.
For cooking food you will need a small camp stove and something to ignite a fire. Generally you want to refrain from starting an open fire as it can be prohibited in many national and state forests. Be sure you have a cooking pot skillet utensils plates and a good knife. Of course some zip-lock bags are great for not only storing food but also rain proofing important items. For the food itself planning out each meal is key. Bringing items like cereal powdered milk granola for breakfast and heat and eat freeze dried meals for lunch and dinners. Remember that weight is an important consideration so bringing a lot of canned foods may tend to weigh you down. Of course you will need plenty of water and a refillable container that you can use along the way. Don`t forget the water purification tablets either again learned that the hard way as well.
