Take up camping hiking or fishing and you`ll always have a reason to be outdoors. Camping hiking or fishing is just three of the many available outdoor activities that will take you away from the normal everyday routine of life. Spending quality time outdoors is a great way to enjoy nature with family and or friends and especially the kids. Many people assume that just because they have never been a part of these activities have no equipment or know little to nothing about it they can`t go. That`s far from the truth. Its fun easier and more affordable than you might expect. It`s all about enjoying the outdoors nature and spending time outdoors.
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.
Next on the `what to bring list` should be a good backpack. Based on the number of days you intend on hiking will largely determine the size and scope of the pack you will need. If you are camping along your hiking route then you will need a larger pack that can accommodate not only your clothes but also you tent and sleeping bag food and cooking stove/utensils and water and other necessities. If you are this during the colder months you will need to plan for additional winter gear and garments. If it is the rainy season then proper raingear would be a must. Avoid The Same Hiking Mistakes I Made.
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.
