Before setting out on a camping or hiking trip do your homework. Know the area you intend to travel to become familiar with area maps and if possible learn to use a compass. Plan your trip thoroughly let others know where you are going and when you plan to return. Never travel alone there is safety in numbers travel with companions.
Optimize your time in the back country wilderness. The easiest way to ensure maximum outdoor enjoyment is to get the best possible value from your gear. Let these hints guide you in getting the most out of your outdoor recreational equipment - and your outdoor wilderness experience.
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.
Well it`s summertime again and that can only mean that for most of us it is a time to get out and enjoy some fun in the sun. Now while many of you might head to the beach for that annual sunburn most of us would prefer the fun and freedom of hiking and camping the great outdoors. No matter whether it is waking to the sounds of birds chirping on a crisp mountain morning or the being lulled to sleep by crickets on a starry night. Hiking and camping can be one of the nicest ways to really come to understand the wilderness. You might choose to hike in the mountains or valleys visiting waterfalls or other famous landmarks and camp in the woods maybe near a river. Either way just be certain to properly prepare for both and don`t make the same mistakes I have made in the past.
