Next the list of necessary supplies needed to safely proceed with our trip into the wilderness. Every trip into the outdoors requires us to carry a basic group of items that must be included in every backpack on the trail. These include water extra food a compass and maps first aid kit flashlight pocket knife or multitool waterproof matches and lighter space blanket twine or fishing line and extra clothing and rain gear. These items are for surviving the outing and should be carried every time you go into the wilderness. What I`m trying to say is even though you may not use these items having them and not needing them is much better than needing them and not having them.
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.
Take up camping hiking or fishing and you`ll always have a reason to be outdoors. Camping hiking or fishing is just three of the many available outdoor activities that will take you away from the normal everyday routine of life. Spending quality time outdoors is a great way to enjoy nature with family and or friends and especially the kids. Many people assume that just because they have never been a part of these activities have no equipment or know little to nothing about it they can`t go. That`s far from the truth. Its fun easier and more affordable than you might expect. It`s all about enjoying the outdoors nature and spending time outdoors.
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.
