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.

The sun cups were one of the biggest problems along with post holing in the soft snow in the afternoons. Almost everyone used trail running shoes except the Europeans who wore mountaineering boots. We had wet feet the whole way through the Sierras from the snow and river crossings and much of Washington from the rain and new snow but surprisingly it wasn‘t much of a problem. We did get tired of the snow and needing to be constantly on the search for the trail. I would like to go back and hike the John Muir Trail (most of which is the same as the PCT) in the fall when you can actually walk on the trail.

We entered the Sierra Nevada on June 11 in a very heavy snow year so we spent about a month hiking through snow sometimes only getting down below snow level in the evening to camp. I had very little experience hiking in deep snow and no experience navigating when the trail was covered with snow most of the day. Mostly we did it with map and compass but we did use a GPS some to pinpoint the trail location and to confirm which was the right pass a few times. I had crampons at the beginning of the Sierras but soon lost them off the back of my pack before I ever used them. One thing we didn‘t have to worry about was water. We got spoiled by only having to carry a liter or two of water. We often drank directly from springs and the snow melt streams without bothering to treat the water.

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.

Camping overnight whether on a hiking trail or hiking park would mean that you will need additional supplies with you such as a camping tent and a sleeping bag among other things. These first few things are considered the basic things to bring if your little adventure requires spending some nights over at a camp or trail. Or if you wish you may also come up with your own checklist for your hiking adventure. Having one especially if it is going to be your first will serve to guide you and make things a lot more convenient.

Valentine Breton Hiking, 2018-04-28 01:00:35. Just after we started the High Sierra we met Swiss Miss and Pang. I hiked together with them the rest of the way to Canada. Along the way I spend varying amounts of time with other hikers as well. A group of 12 of us left Yosemite together - The Dirty Dozen! Half of us were from the U.S. and half were from other countries so it became a very international experience. Each of us had strengths and weakness and we learned to work together as a team and to help and depend on each other. My greatest fear before starting the hike was crossing the rapid flowing icy cold rivers. They turned out to not be as terrible as I had expected. We had a few close calls and some struggles but the teamwork was amazing and we did it together.

Josephe Batard Camping, 2018-04-28 01:00:28. Planning to attend summer camp. The time to really start thinking about summer camp is in fact the middle of winter - say January. If you are looking for an overnight camp this is the time to start looking at camps and mentally preparing for summer camps. While children may be tenuous about spending a week or two weeks at an overnight camp far away from family and friends looking at them early in the year can help prepare all family members for the eventuality. Many camps start filling up with registrations at this time and they begin promotion long before the summer. If you want to be sure to get in to one of these camps (which have limited space always) then you need to register early.
