Backpacking Tips

The following are some backpacking reminders:

Emergency Kit
Hiking safety includes the safety page and first aid in more detail. For now, just say that you should have something in the way of first aid and emergency kits. This depends on your experience and the level of risk you're comfortable with. The basic first aid is a list of everything that carried first aid page.

Emergency kit for a few matches and holds some storm-resistant plastic, waterproof fire starter, small container. Also, always have a map and compass can be used as an emergency signal low mirror my compass has aircraft flying.

Unless it is naked day hiking, no article about the basics of hiking in completely without debate hiking clothes. Remember the most important thing is that “cotton kills ". This may seem a little extreme, but cotton is one of the worst insulators and when it is cold and humid. It takes a long time to dry. So it's easy to closed hypothermia, you have the right clothes (when the cold and rainy). There are many fun new materials out there for hiking clothes. So make sure it's no cotton, and everything will be alright.

Don’t forget to eat! Have a lot of high calorie foods with you. Proper nutrition is one of the most important of the basics of backpacking. Aim for about 2-2.5 pounds of food per person per day. A good rule is to choose foods that have at least 100 calories per ounce (ounce is equal to 28 grams). It is clear that some foods have more and some will have less. But, on average, resulting in approximately 3,000 to 4,000 calories per day in a long-distance backpacking trip, you will need much more than that. Common mistake and always take it all the time is to eat too much and not eating enough.

However, if you are not active in daily life, be sure to set up a training regimen to get in shape for your next trip. Not only will this help prevent damage to the trail, but you have a lot more fun if you're in good shape.

Try some cross training, to work the different muscle groups. Make sure that you would like to receive much heart cardiovascular exercise and clamping and strength training. Join a yoga class or hiking at your favorite local path start. Every little bit helps!
