Hiking. Friday , April 27th , 2018 - 22:05:26 PM
When I found out that it went from Mexico to Canada I thought that would be something fun to do someday. In the years that followed I joined an adventure racing club and the outdoor activities progressed to longer harder and more frequent. In the summer of 2002 I went to Peru on a two-week hiking mission trip. That turned into a three-year stint the following year. In 2005 knowing that my term would be up in January of 2006 I started making plans to through-hike the PCT. The timing all came together no job no mortgage or other expenses and some money in the bank from selling my house when I went to Peru.
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.
Apart from your hiking boots there are other forms of equipment needed for you hike. If you plan on embarking on a day hike you will need hiking socks water purifying tablets (if you are not carrying your own water) a back pack walking stick traction devices rescue beacons signaling gear Avalanche probes (if you will be on snow covered hilly terrain) jackets binoculars first aid kit a compass sunscreen and food. For an overnight hike you will require a tent sleeping bag camp stoves rain gear matches a Swiss army knife and a flashlight. Get a map of the route you plan on taking. If you plan to hike alone or with one another person notify your family (or a ranger if you are hiking through a park) on the place where you will be and the time you expect to return. That way someone can come looking for you if you are in trouble or just simply lost.
