I am sure like me you will soon discover just how enjoyable camping in the great outdoors can be. It is a relaxing hobby away from the hustle and bustle of the city and the stresses of work and home. You get to enjoy the tranquil of nature, study the stars and much more. It is an experience that is hard to describe there is nothing else like it.
Hiking is another activity that can be just as fun as enjoyable and there is absolutely no reason why you cannot combine the two for the ultimate enjoyable adventure in the great outdoors.
But before you embark on any kind of kind of camping or hiking trip you need to make sure you are prepared and have everything you will need but do not forget whatever you take whilst on a hiking trip you will have to carry on your back so you will need to make sure you go lightweight. If you bring too much, you’ll quickly tire out and you won’t want to continue your hiking journey and you certainly won’t enjoy it..
It is very important that you make a list of the equipment you will need for your camping and hiking trip. You will naturally need a good comfortable set of hiking boots that will get you over rough terrain but will not be uncomfortable if you are wearing them all day (make sure you buy them in advance to break them in). Another important factor is socks. Make sure you have a few pairs of these to avoid blisters as these are not at all pleasant when out hiking and will spoil the great adventure. You might also want to pack some snack foods such as chocolate to keep your energy up and some water to avoid de-hydration especially if the weather is a little warm. Assuming you are planning to camp on your hike you will need a lightweight tent and a sleeping bag along with something to cook on. . There are many other things you can buy, such as portable grills and such, but these won’t make very good camping and hiking equipment ideas because you’ll have to carry all those things around with you and they can get very heavy very quickly.
Camping Equipment Discounts
If you are ona tight budget then why not check the online auctions such as ebay and other online stores as you will often be able to pick up good quality camping gear at a discount. . You can also try to ask your friends and family if they have any old equipment you can maybe buy or that they’ll lend you so that you can have everything you need for your trip.
Do Not forget that because you planning to hike you should onlky take with you equipment you are planning to use and indeed need and nothing more. Luxery items should simply stay at home. So make a list and stick to that list, no matter how tempted you are to buy the latest camping and hiking equipment. If you can’t carry it, you shouldn’t bring it. It’s as simple as that.
