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.
The Kelty Blanca 2000 Hydration Fastpack is a really nice choice if you decide to go with one of these. For the cost-conscious Stansport sells the Slick Rock Hydration Back Pack. Frame Packs If you are hiking out into the woods and then camping there over night you will need a larger backpack. This is where frame packs come in. The word frame refers to the fact that there is something inside or on the outside of the pack that helps the pack maintain its shape. There are two types: internal frame and external. Size and Weight You can also get backpacks for smaller people such as the Coyote 4750 Trail Internal Backpack. This pack is hydration-compatible which means that you can add a water bladder whereas the Tornado has it built in. Also there are backpacks made to be very light such as the hydration-compatible Kelty`s Illusion 3500 Ultralight Backpack which is just 3 lbs 7 oz. Brands I have mostly mentioned Kelty backpacks because they are among the best but there are many other brands worth looking at.
Purchase the best survival and adventure gear you can possibly afford. If you are willing to spend months carefully planning your next vacation adventure spending hours getting into great hiking shape take three weeks off from work for you camping experience purchase an airline ticket and so forth - then why are you using the least expensive backpack and hiking boots you can find? A good pair of hiking boots and socks will make all the difference in the world. This applies to all of your camping gear. Whether it`s your GPS unit rafting gear sleeping bag rain gear or dual-fuel portable stove set your budget to carry the best outdoor equipment you can afford - in order to get the most value for your money.
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.
