Valentine Breton. Hiking. February 26th , 2018.
Many people have commented on it as being "The trip of a lifetime". I understand what they mean but I have a problem with that. There is a common disease that affects many long distance through-hikers. I have the disease and there is no cure. It is only alleviated to some degree by going on another long hike. When and where I don‘t know but I‘m sure it will happen. It‘s been 11 months since I finished the hike and I can still spend hours looking through some of the thousands of photos or watching someone‘s slide show and every time I do I wish I could grab my backpack and head back to the trail. Just writing this and thinking about it causes me to get emotional and longing for the "simple" life on the trail. Of course like most difficult but rewarding experiences it‘s easy to forget the hard times and only remember the good.
Hiking Boots. Among the essentials in any set of hiking gear would definitely be hiking boots. And you will need to choose them carefully based on where you‘re planning on walking. For most purposes a good set of hiking boots should remain waterproof and provide support especially to the ankles which can often twist easily if you‘re going to be hiking for a long day or on rough terrain.
Taking a trip and have an interest in hiking? Whether you choose to hike for one or five days you will be looking out for the best hiking park for the area you travel to and the trails for hiking. There are many hiking trails that you can go on but taking the time to choose the best is probably what you want to get the most enjoyment out of. By taking time out to examine many hiking trials in the area you are traveling to you can then pick and choose that are more favourable to you so that you can be assured that you will enjoy your hike.
Pants. If you‘ve ever found yourself hiking on the trail with the pants chafing between your legs then you‘ll know that getting the right pair of trousers is vital. Polypropylene is the usual material used for hiking trousers because it is comfortable and quick-drying. Aside from being comfortable I like my hiking pants to have plenty of pockets for storing granola bars or almost anything that you need quick access to on the trail.
