Many of us take to the great outdoors to escape the tediousness of our daily lives. It`s a great place to get away from the stresses of our daily routines and can be quite therapeutic under the right circumstances. Under the wrong circumstances however the camping and hiking adventure can quickly become a nightmare. Here are a few pointers and suggestions that will keep your outdoor adventure enjoyable and worry-free.
For cooking food you will need a small camp stove and something to ignite a fire. Generally you want to refrain from starting an open fire as it can be prohibited in many national and state forests. Be sure you have a cooking pot skillet utensils plates and a good knife. Of course some zip-lock bags are great for not only storing food but also rain proofing important items. For the food itself planning out each meal is key. Bringing items like cereal powdered milk granola for breakfast and heat and eat freeze dried meals for lunch and dinners. Remember that weight is an important consideration so bringing a lot of canned foods may tend to weigh you down. Of course you will need plenty of water and a refillable container that you can use along the way. Don`t forget the water purification tablets either again learned that the hard way as well.
Next on the `what to bring list` should be a good backpack. Based on the number of days you intend on hiking will largely determine the size and scope of the pack you will need. If you are camping along your hiking route then you will need a larger pack that can accommodate not only your clothes but also you tent and sleeping bag food and cooking stove/utensils and water and other necessities. If you are this during the colder months you will need to plan for additional winter gear and garments. If it is the rainy season then proper raingear would be a must. Avoid The Same Hiking Mistakes I Made.
