o What`s the terrain like? Will you be pitching a tent or using a camper? Will your destination be in the rough or will it be a designated cleared site? o Check the Weather predictions and always be prepared for the unexpected. The first time you don`t will be the time you wish you had.
Internal frame backpacks are the more popular variety. Users often say they are more comfortable than the external frame packs because they conform to the body. This can be a problem though in hot weather. External frame packs tend to allow more air between the user and the pack which can be cooler. The Kelty Tornado 4900 Hydration Backcountry is an internal frame pack that has a breathable back panel thereby attempting to provide the best of both worlds. This is a very nice pack with a 3 liter hydration system.
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.
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.
