Are there success stories where past students have been successfully advanced into higher levels? This is a true test of a camp‘s quality and should not go unnoticed during your evaluation. Ask those questions of the camp leadership personnel.

Good boots give you traction and support throughout the hike. A good pair of boots need not be overly expensive even though you should not compromise on quality in the name of lower overall cost. It is advisable that you purchase your boots from a dealer who is conversant with the standards required of outdoor wear. Boots vary from lightweight for light hiking to heavy boots that are more durable and support the feet and ankles. The features you need to look out for when buying your hiking boots include water resistance weight of the boot the price the toe groove for crampons the width of toe box and the gusseted tongue.

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.

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.

Alacoque Dupacrac Camping, 2018-04-28 01:00:41. Will you receive written evaluations of field work? Written critiques should be very helpful to identify some of your strong and weak points. Most often camp instructors will see some small intangible need for you to improve upon that you may not have known. They will also provide excellent insight and advice on what to expect at the higher levels giving you a clear path on what you need to address as you seek advancement.

Unlike the mountaineer who still has to get down the mountain after the summit the hike ended on an emotional high with nowhere to go no descend time to unwind. We spent a couple of days there not wanting to say goodbye and go home. It‘s hard to describe the feeling of watching the mountain peak landmarks pass below on the flight back to L.A five months going by in fast reverse in a couple of hours! And then came trying to go back to a "normal" life when our main concerns for so long were just walking eating and sleeping. Now we were home at least our bodies were but our minds keep wandering back to the trail.
