If you want to do a more challenging exercise, hiking is the perfect for you. It is because hiking will give you adrenaline rush. Also, you will be able to discover more places, learn of the nice views you never thought existed, and be able to feel the wonders of nature.
A planning should be carefully done for a quiet dangerous adventure. Experienced hikers always suggest that you go hiking with someone else. You should also prepare the equipment that you will need for your hiking activity. No idea on what these equipment are? You can do online research and go to websites that will give you the information needed for your hiking activity and provide you with the proper equipment you need. Most of the websites now offer this “online reviews” section where you will read other hikers’ experiences and you will learn a lot from it.
Proper equipment are not the only thing you should prepare, remember that you should also have the proper clothing. Choose the clothes that are waterproof, will make you feel warm even being under the sun, insect-proof, and is very comfortable. Get a pair of boots that is comfortable to wear. You don’t know what you may encounter on your hiking, so make sure you have extra socks. If you cannot find these on the stores near you, do online shopping. Items bought online are also delivered door to door. Most of the companies give a free shipping. There have been many online stores so there is really a competition between them. They offer great deals, one company will give a 10% off for a first time shopper, and this company will give freebies if you reach a certain number of items.
Let your family know that you are planning to have a hiking activity. Then choose a trail that is already known. Printing a guide is a good thing, but it is still more recommendable that you go with a group. Aside that it is fun, you can also assist and help each other.
Since hiking requires your body to be physically prepared, you might want to do workouts beforehand and train your legs. You can try going with a treadmill for your legs. Train your back of carrying heavy bag.
Gather the group and plan everything when everyone’s body and equipment are ready. Every person that will go should know every step that you will do. Unexpected things may happen so secure your list of emergency numbers.
Hiking is a quite dangerous thing to do. You should do a really good planning and preparing for it. But no matter how exhausting it can be, it is still gonna be worth it because of the experience, exercise and never-seen-before view you will get.
