As for general miscellaneous equipment a compass some light rope a can bottle opener a signal mirror and a first aid kit are very important. Extra batteries are a great idea as well if you have devices that require them. Just be mindful about the added weight. Finally clothing will need to be considered. If you are changing elevations the weather can change quickly as well. What started out in the 70 and 80`s can quickly turn into the 40`s and below especially as the sunsets. Don`t get caught without the proper sweaters or blankets. Likewise in the heat of the day having a good hat and sunscreen can prevent you from getting too much sun or even dehydrated. I also strongly recommend a good pair of sunglasses. Yea you guessed it; I forgot those too. Now that you are armed with these basic hiking and camping tips my hope is that you don`t make the same mistakes that I have made. If you plan appropriately and are well-equipped your experience should be safe and enjoyable. So no more excuses get out there and take on the great outdoors and have a blast doing it.
Get comfortable using all of your safety and survival equipment and practice using it the correct way. It is not the time to start learning how to navigate with a compass and map after you are already lost. It`s not the time to learn how to start a fire with a 6 year old flare you`ve been carrying forever in your pack. It`s not time to learn about safe rafting and best survival practices after you`re in danger. Put aside some time to learn about all the features of your camping gear before you head out to your favorite campground. You might be surprised to learn how incredible your GPS really is once you understand how to use the backtrack feature. You will also be mighty thankful when you learn the proper weight distribution for your backpack. Take time to learn about your camping gear - practice around your home before you venture into the great outdoors.
Camping and Hiking Tips Now once you determine on a specific site and time you are wanting to begin your hike you will want to plan on what you need to take with you how much you will need and probably most important what you don`t need to bring with you. Below are just a few simple tips that should prove very helpful.
Hiking Trails in Campgrounds - As you already know these two activities just seem to work. The major reason behind this is because hiking trails are typically found in campground and state park where people camp out at. The reverse is also true when it comes to them working out together. There are hiking trails in establishments often referred to as hiking parks. These hiking parks often have their own campground site. Experts in both hiking and camping will pair the two without thinking them both a part. This is a sign that both activities just go together like peanut butter and jelly which you can bring on the camping trip.
