Your Guide to Hiking Safely
We all need to consider hike safety and plan in advance a suitable route, clothing, equipment and food for our hiking party. Planning also ensures that we are aware of potential difficulties or hazards and the accepted courses of action when problems arise.
This guide aims to outline key safety steps you can take to ensure you and your hiking party return safely from every hike.
Your Guide to Navigation
Hiking is a relatively safe outdoor adventure but it is only safe if you are prepared. The most basic element of you ‘being prepared’ is knowing where you are and where you are going.
The most common cause of ill fated hiking trips is people getting lost so it is important to know how NOT to get lost and what to do if it does happen.
Your Guide to Hiking Skills
You would think that hiking is as simple as lacing up your boots, throwing on a pack and heading out into the great outdoors. If you can walk you can hike right? Well not quite.
By learning, practicing and refining a few common hiking skills you will become a lot more confident and will get a lot more pleasure from your adventures.
Your Guide to Hiking Gear
What you carry in your pack will depend on your intended destination, length, duration, weather, terrain, time of year, group size and a number of other important factors.
This guide covers the Ten Essentials that should be considered as a standard inclusion in every pack. I also provide an overview of the most common items of gear you will need for both day and overnight adventures.
I am currently in the process of writing this guide. If you are able to contribute or are keen to advertise, please get in touch.
