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.
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.
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.
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.
