o What`s the terrain like? Will you be pitching a tent or using a camper? Will your destination be in the rough or will it be a designated cleared site? o Check the Weather predictions and always be prepared for the unexpected. The first time you don`t will be the time you wish you had.
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.
o Make it a rule pack up any medications and all first aid supplies that you may need. Prescription medications pain relief and vitamins are essentials. Those with allergies should bring along an epi-pen or allergy relief medication. Camping and hiking gear are a must for all hikers and outdoor adventure lovers. Providing safety and comfort and making our adventures possible they are mandatory for hikers.
