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.
Valentine Breton Camping, 2017-12-11 09:05:48. 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.

In case of a fall or any untoward accident that may make walking or moving on again difficult this simple piece of hiking gear will be useful to create some rapping noise against rocks or any hard surface to call rescue people or any other passing person‘s attention and get help soon. You can find this clean and simple-looking gear either in the sports stores or by simply rummaging through your backyard.

Keep the soap in a traveling soap dish as well as the toothbrush in a toothbrush holder. It may not come home that way but at least it is a good start. In fact you should probably expect the loss of a few items at the youth camp. Expect it and pack accordingly. Then you won‘t be upset if something doesn‘t return or it is returned in a less than ideal condition.

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.

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.

The weather can change drastically when you are out on a long hike and you need to be prepared for all type of weather conditions. Avoid cotton clothing because it holds moisture for long periods. Use polypropylene and other synthetic materials. Make sure you wear dark clothing because they dry faster. Wear light colored clothing if you‘re hiking in areas known for their tick infestation.

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.
Valentine Breton Camping, 2018-04-28 01:00:59. Summer youth camp is an exciting time for both teens and parents. But along with the excitement there may be some anxiety and fear as well. It is much easier for parents to send a teen off to youth camp that has had the camp experience before. But it may create a lot of fear and anxiety for a younger teen that has never been away from home and has never been apart from his or her parents for so many days. Of course there will also be other teens who can‘t wait for the chance to get away from home for a few days. And most parents can appreciate a little break away from the teens for a few days. Even so a little concern and anxiety on the part of parents is also to be expected. Parents must keep in mind that a well-planned youth camp has great staff and leaders to take care of your youth during their stay.
