Well it`s summertime again and that can only mean that for most of us it is a time to get out and enjoy some fun in the sun. Now while many of you might head to the beach for that annual sunburn most of us would prefer the fun and freedom of hiking and camping the great outdoors. No matter whether it is waking to the sounds of birds chirping on a crisp mountain morning or the being lulled to sleep by crickets on a starry night. Hiking and camping can be one of the nicest ways to really come to understand the wilderness. You might choose to hike in the mountains or valleys visiting waterfalls or other famous landmarks and camp in the woods maybe near a river. Either way just be certain to properly prepare for both and don`t make the same mistakes I have made in the past.
Next the list of necessary supplies needed to safely proceed with our trip into the wilderness. Every trip into the outdoors requires us to carry a basic group of items that must be included in every backpack on the trail. These include water extra food a compass and maps first aid kit flashlight pocket knife or multitool waterproof matches and lighter space blanket twine or fishing line and extra clothing and rain gear. These items are for surviving the outing and should be carried every time you go into the wilderness. What I`m trying to say is even though you may not use these items having them and not needing them is much better than needing them and not having them.
Even if you`re on a tight budget a camping trip a day hike a family picnic by the lake or just a visit to your local park does not have to be expensive. Some facilities are free where others might charge a nominal fee that`s normally used to keep the facility more enjoyable. Some facilities are for use only during the daylight hours while others offer everything from day use overnight camping fishing hiking trails nature walks and etc.
Probably one of the first items to consider would be the proper footwear if you are planning on going hiking. The correct fit and comfort are vital for successful hiking trip. Based on the location of the hike you will want to decide the weight durability and if you will need them to be waterproof or not. Remember you will most likely be encountering uneven and rough terrain so boot selection needs serious consideration so do your research. In addition to the boots be sure to bring along extra pairs of good hiking socks. This will not only help avoid you getting blisters but in the event that your socks get wet it will offer you some dry backup options.
