Here are just a few things to consider and think about. o Consider where you`re going what your activities will consist of and how long you plan to stay in order to determine what gear you might need. o Will you be Camping Fishing Hiking Backpacking or maybe you just want to set up camp and chill for the weekend. You can even plan a combination.
Your camping gear isn`t just for outdoor adventure - keep your gear with you and use it as much as possible. It has unlimited uses in your daily life. Never go on a road trip without your outdoor pack. In all likelihood you`ll find an opportunity to use your camping - hiking - survival equipment close to home. It never fails - if you don`t have your camping gear with you you will need it.
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.
When you`re done with your camping gear donate it - and some of your time - to a local scout troop. Your local youth scouting groups are always on the lookout for a helping hand from outdoor enthusiasts. You will feel great satisfaction knowing that your trusty old gear will help benefit others.
