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.
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.
It is extremely important to choose the correct gear. For example a choice exists between daypacks which can either be internal or external-frame packs. External backpacks work best for new hikers and are much cooler than the internal ones. Similarly one can choose between sleeping bags of goose down or synthetic fabric. While goose down is warmer synthetic is less expensive and requires less maintenance than goose down.
Purchase of any gear or equipment should be kept to an affordable budget and fit for your specific needs. Camping Fishing Hiking Boating and Outdoor Recreation is just a few of the activities where you can build your gear and equipment inventory a little at a time. Don`t try to buy it all in one season. In fact you can likely find friends and or family that will share equipment and gear.
