Carabiners. If you are going on a mountain hiking trip all by yourself then make sure you have carabiners. Carabiners are small metal clips that are usually made of aluminum. You will need carabiners while hiking so you can clip yourself onto the mountainous surface or you can even clip your gear onto them. You can use carabiners for a variety of purposes depending on their shapes and styles. You can even use larger locking carabiners for belaying and for securing the rope to the surface of a mountain. You can use non-locking carabiners for holding other gear and for nonessential clips.
Why would anyone want to spend five months walking from Mexico to Canada? Most through-hikers get asked that question over and over. It‘s like asking a mountain climber why do you climb mountains. For me it started when I was active in the singles group of my church in Manhattan Beach a suburb of Los Angeles. Jason one of the class members started leading monthly hikes for the group usually in the Angeles National Forest in the San Gabriel Mountains just north of Los Angeles.
I started my hike on April 28 at the Mexican border. I was trying to finish in four months and I had already purchased my return ticket to Peru based on that schedule. The first week went well and then I started getting blisters. I was also hiker faster than most of the others so I was passing a lot of people but not spending much time with them and wasn‘t making any friendships with other hikers. After two weeks I had to take a few days off to let the blisters heal. I also realized that I needed to slow down and spend time with other hikers if I wanted to make friendships which was one of my goals for the hike. After leaving Big Bear CA I did slow down and started hiking with four other people. Two of them were section hiking and one had to stop due to injury but I hiked with go-Big the other one most of the way to the Oregon border.
Harness. If you are going on a mountain hiking trip then another important gear you will need is a harness. You can wear a harness just like a pair of pants and it will rest on your hips. While hiking you will need to use the harness for attaching yourself to the belay device or the rope and for carrying gear. A harness will act as a safety net for you while you are hiking over a mountain and make sure you wear it tightly enough so that if you end up flipped upside down you do not slip out of it.
