Hiking and Camping Costs - Another reason hiking and camping go together is the costs behind the both of them. Should you want to go camping paying for it as well as the hiking fee... if there is one... can be a way to save money by combining the two activities. Should you make a corollary or rather a reservation at a public setting like a campground park it is likely you will see a hiking trail... which you can do for free. The reverse may also be true. Should you visit a hiking park and it takes you a while to hike it is possible you can stay overnight at the park free of charge. All these activities depend on where you go and what the campground is like can be free. Do some research before embarking on you trip.
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.
Next on the `what to bring list` should be a good backpack. Based on the number of days you intend on hiking will largely determine the size and scope of the pack you will need. If you are camping along your hiking route then you will need a larger pack that can accommodate not only your clothes but also you tent and sleeping bag food and cooking stove/utensils and water and other necessities. If you are this during the colder months you will need to plan for additional winter gear and garments. If it is the rainy season then proper raingear would be a must. Avoid The Same Hiking Mistakes I Made.
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.
