Trail Hiking & Camping Recommendations For Newcomers

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

The hardest part about being a novice hiker is soaking up and synthesizing all the details you will need. Trail hiking and camping along trails is one of those things that needs some know-how and consideration prior to actually starting your trip. In order to make it easy for you, we have created a listing of the main guidelines beginners should become aware of about trail hiking and camping.

Plan in advance

Going hiking on a trail isn’t something you decide to do out of the blue or on a whim unless you are a truly rugged outdoorsman with intimate expertise in hiking and the trails you’re going on. For everyone else, it is wise to plan ahead and know some basics about the area. It is a good idea to have a map and study the routes in advance, to ensure you appreciate how far the trails are and know the place you would like to take a break or setup camp. Planning a route may prevent you from becoming lost or not calculating distances properly.

Do not overwork your body

If you’ve already gone hiking and camping, you presumably know your physical limits. It’s fine to push your body a touch, but don’t overdo it, specifically in areas which are faraway or you are new to. If you ever push yourself too much, fatigue can make you more susceptible to injury and possibly unable to hike out from the area. Anytime you’re walking, make an attempt taking a break every hour to rest and drink plenty of water. Making routine stops and walking at the right speed may prevent you against getting over-worked.

Dress yourself in suitable apparel

Absolutely nothing could make the hike more difficult than being dressed in the wrong clothes. When you plan ahead, make sure you get weather conditions so you know what camping clothes are the best. For instance, if it is going to be chilly, make sure you bring a coat, thermals and multiple layers. In order to avoid getting bug bites or becoming contaminated with poison ivy, always wear long sleeve shirts and pants, even during the summer.

Bring in the appropriate equipment

While you’re on the trail or camping for the night, you should bring the right supplies. Look for a checklist you should follow if you are going camping while on a trail. For anyone who is just going hiking, some of the essentials you must have are great walking footwear that won’t cause harm to your feet, a lot of water and a few snacks to keep you energized. Also, make sure you have a emergency first aid kit, cellphone and compass in the event you wander away from the trail.

Stay intelligent and do not go crazy

As previously written, you shouldn’t overwork yourself or work like an experienced hiker if you are first starting out. For example, novices must not veer away from designated trails. Trails are there to steer hikers around areas, so leaving one could possibly result in becoming lost. Remember to use extreme care and stay wise about all you do on the trail.

Choose the Right Camping Water Filter

Monday, July 5th, 2010

When it comes to being adventurous and camping, you need to pick the right camping water filter. For those that camp day to day in new areas of the world, there isn’t always a way to get clean water. With a water filter that’s portable, it will be easy to make water as you walk. All you need is a water source and something to contain it. Let us give you some good ideas where to get water filters for your camper and portable filters for hiking.

When you travel a long path going to nowhere, it’s always good to have bottled water. However, you should never carry something that’s way to heavy on a hiking trip. That’s where a mobile water filter comes in. You can get a pump filter or battery powered. Once you add the water to the filter, the pump runs the water through a cleaning process that cleans the water to be drinkable.

To find a purifier portable, you need to search the Internet or a local camping shop. However, looking on the Internet you can find many different brands and reviews online. Using the Internet will help you determine the best brand out today and to do this, you should look up some reviews.

Now that you know a bit about portable filters, you should install a water purifier in your camper. Some campers come equipped with water purifiers and make it easy. However, for those older style campers, you need to install one. There are many companies that sell filters that hook to the end of a facet or in the water system.

Once you choose your choice in water filtration, you can be on your way to camping. It can be dangerous if you decide to go out on a hike without some sort of purifier for water. You can always find a river that has running water to drink, but that’s sometimes not their when you need it.

To get the latest news on brand name water purifiers, you can look at some website that shows upcoming brands or equipment. When you go camping, it’s important to find the right equipment before you go out to the wild. If you backpack tent you can carry a portable filter easily in the backpack. The equipment is small and holds a few oz’s of water.

The equipment is easy to clean afterwards and easy to purchase new filters. You may find them anywhere online. Although, you might want to get a popular brand. If you don’t want to buy a filter online, then you should go ahead and make a homemade filter. To make your own you can find guides online.

Remember to always be careful when camping and stay hydrated. Food isn’t the only thing that causes death. Hydration is important, because you can live without food for a few days, but with no water it will be death. When you decide on your type of Camping Water Filter try to keep hydrated.

Camping – The Cure For Everything By Linda A. Perry Platinum Quality Author

Sunday, June 6th, 2010
  • Back to Nature:Camping cannot make world peace and it cannot solve the mysteries of cancer. But what camping can do for you, probably no other activity can. It brings you back to nature, and lets you experience peace in your very present moment. That is camping

. If you choose a state park or state forest as your camping location, you will see nature like you have never seen it before. You might see raccoons, all sorts of birds and little animals, chipmunks, rabbits and more. If you are not careful you might have your first bear experience and hopefully, you will come out of it okay. But you will, without a doubt be as close to nature as you ever will be.

My Favorite–Eureka Tents:

First, I have to say, my happiest and best camping days have been while using a Eureka tent. They are just made with the camper in mind. Does your tent have a nice screen window with a plastic flap –for rain? If you choose your tent correctly, you will have an awesome camping experience. A large part of joy in camping is having fun setting up the tent. If you do not enjoy setting your tent up–you simply have the wrong kind of tent. You may have spent just a few dollars for your tent, you might have gotten a bargain but you will know your value as you take it out and set it up. I say this from experience, and from having put up all sorts of tents from solo tents, backpacking tents, individual tents, even family tents. Yes, I have put up a family-size tent, myself–with no assistance, and had fun doing it. And just one company makes this possible. Eureka! I absolutely love the Tetragon series of Eureka tents. You cannot go wrong with this tent. The Tetragon 9 is a beautiful tent that has side windows that are net. And the fly of the tent has plastic inserts that cover the side windows in case of rain. The beauty of a tent is being able to look outdoors from the inside and still be able to be dry in a downpour. Ahh, that special beauty of seeing the forest or the park through your tent windows as the rain is pouring down outside. That is Eureka! It is just a convenient, joyful, easy-to-assemble tent.

Weather Decides Which Tent You Need:

When trying to decide which tent to purchase, the camper needs to first know where he will camp out, the time he will camp out, and the weather circumstances, and a few other things. For beginners, if you do not want to spend a few extra dollars buying a Eureka tent, you can opt for the cheaper versions of small tents just to see how you like camping. Try any tent. But I guarantee you, if you want an awesome experience, even as a beginner, you might do better with a Eureka. Here is an idea, instead of spending big bucks on an expensive tent of some other name, check out eBay or some other used-items stores and purchase your tent used instead of new. This way you can afford Eureka for your first tent and then you can upgrade later if you really insist on having a brand new tent.

Beginners’ Tents:

During my experimentation with many different kinds of tents, I’ve found that the best beginners’ tent is a very inexpensive one that is usually available, in season, at Target stores.The tent is called the Expedition Trail Authority tent. If you purchase this tent ‘off- season” you can pick it up for under nineteen dollars.The tent area on the floor is seven feet by seven feet, so that’s plenty space for one or two people.This tent is easily set up. You don’t need two people to set it up because the tent center height is at a reasonable height. All you do is assemble the shock-corded poles and install them. Stake your tent down. Add the tent fly, and you are ready to go.

When using this tent, I use an inexpensive waterproof tarp under the tent, and another inexpensive waterproof tarp over the tent. Now , I’m set for all kinds of weather camping.

Leave Large Family Tents Home:

I’ve found that if you want to have a pleasant, non-working camping experience, you’ll need to leave the large tents and the family tents back at the house or in the garage. Those larger tents, though they afford more room and more center height, are not fun to put together. And, on a windy day, they are almost impossible for one person to put them together. So, the smaller you go, the better you’ll feel and the best and most carefree camping experience you’ll have. Use two or three smaller tents for the family and you will all have more fun and much nicer trip.

RAIN? Keep Your Camping Reservation:

Here is another camping tip. Never cancel a camping trip just because you hear that it will rain. The weather will probably be fine for at least some of your trip days. So keep your planned trip. Camp in all kinds of weather if you are physically able to do so. You will love the experience. The rain will always stop, and even if it does not, you will learn what camping is really all about. Camping is about bringing yourself out into nature and living there for a short while. You live there with what nature provides, and you take it all, sunshine, rain, storms and whatever other kind of weather happens. You go camping!

The great thing about camping is that this is probably the one place that you can safely “do nothing” , and really enjoy doing that. Just sit outside the tent and take in all the birds, trees and nature all around you. Check out Hither Hills State Park if you like camping at the ocean. This is the most awesome place for going to sleep and waking up with the tide rushing. And this comes from one who does not know how to swim. I loved staying there for the night.

Just a note, if you do camp at Hither Hills, bring ziplocs with you. Put all your money or fragile items, like Ipods etc, inside plastic bags and then put the plastic bags inside a beach bucket. This way everything will be dry in the morning. Just one last note, you need to register at least nine months in advance if you want to camp out at Hither Hills during a weekend or holiday time.
