Planning Make a list of items you might need or want and give yourself time to get things together rather than attempting to throw everything together at the last minute. Your trip will be much more enjoyable if just take time make a list and plan. Your list should include everything that you need and or want as well as those just in case items. As you pack check each item off of your list to help ensure you`re not overlooking anything. There are many things to consider; sometimes making a list and planning is the only way to make sure you`ve got all of your must-haves to make the more enjoyable. It`s really all about individual desires and what you`ll be doing.
Designed For All Ages - Camping and hiking are perfect for each other because both are designed for children and adults. This is important because families are always looking for ways to spend time together without the television set and other disturbances that take away from family time. In the United States hiking trails come in a variety of difficulty levels. It is possible to find trails just for beginners. These trails are idyllic for the younger children and the elderly.
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.
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.
