Choosing good clothing is a must too. Shirts made from synthetic or synthetic-blend fabrics work best for hikers and campers. It allows the perspiration to evaporate and leaves the shirt dry for the comfort of the hikers. Brands like PowerDry Coolmax Apparel and Airtek make good-quality shirts.
Probably one of the first items to consider would be the proper footwear if you are planning on going hiking. The correct fit and comfort are vital for successful hiking trip. Based on the location of the hike you will want to decide the weight durability and if you will need them to be waterproof or not. Remember you will most likely be encountering uneven and rough terrain so boot selection needs serious consideration so do your research. In addition to the boots be sure to bring along extra pairs of good hiking socks. This will not only help avoid you getting blisters but in the event that your socks get wet it will offer you some dry backup options.
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.
