GivenName Surname Hiking, 2018-04-27 06:30:36. First try to consider the length of time within which you plan to do with your hiking and where. 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.

Even when hiking over a mountain there is always the risk that a broken chunk of mountainous terrain might fall right on top of you and your helmet will protect your head from damage.

Simpler (in design) camping toilets are generally made of a light metal frame with a seat that has a hole in the middle - they are almost identical to a foldable chair except they have a hole in the middle of the seat. Usually these kind of types require you to also have some bags in which you can capture the feces. One of the main concerns with using these type of toilets is that the bags for containing the poop are made out of plastic which is not nature friendly.

You will find that your mild obsession with football officiating may not be fully understood with your friends and family. Most won‘t truly appreciate your desire to officiate football at the highest levels. People will continually question your desires and dreams. Some may even attempt to discourage you from pursuing those dreams. Camps provide you a unique opportunity to surround yourself with similar motivated people passionate about officiating football. This environment is conducive to learning and improvement. The people you will meet and associations you make will reach beyond the short camp schedule and provide you meaningful relationships in and out of the officiating community.

You realize how long California is when you hike the whole way it took three months and one week to reach Oregon but I never got tired of the continually changing and always beautiful scenery. From Mt. Shasta on we had numerous forest fires causing hazy skies beautiful sunsets and closed trails and detours. For the last month we weren‘t sure we would be able to finish the trail at Manning Park. We did have to skip a section in Oregon due to fires but the final section before the Canadian border reopened just before we got there. Unlike some just ahead of us we were able to finish at the official terminating point and get our pictures at the border monument. That is the through-hiker‘s "summit" moment similar to when a mountaineer reaches the top of the mountain.

If you are sure there will be water at your destination carry just slightly more than sufficient water to last until you arrive. Water is of greater importance than food to your survival. Always filter any water you find along the trail and that you are in need of using - unless the water is from a natural spring. If you can fix a long drinking straw to the water bottle so you can drink as you move the better.
GivenName Surname Hiking, 2018-04-28 01:00:23. 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.
GivenName Surname Hiking, 2018-04-28 01:00:45. Hiking with Friends. The support and motivation obtained from the group will help you in those times when you might think of packing up leaving. Actually even when you are hiking on trail you are used to it does not hurt to bring at least one person along as this is a natural deterrent to anyone along the trail that may be lurking with ill intent.

That is the main reason it has taken me so long to get around to writing this - it seemed like an overwhelming task. So I will mostly hit a few highlights and share some thoughts and feelings.
