Outdoors is Great, If You’re Prepared?

Do you want to know the number one cause of awful camping trips that make every one want to stay at home where it’s nice and safe? It’s just that a lot of novice campers go out there unprepared for nature. Yes, the views are beautiful and the photos you take there will earn you tonnes of followers on Instagram but your camera shouldn’t be the only thing you carry with you when you go camping or on a hiking trip.

If you’ve heard campers complain about how they got bit by various different kinds of insects, got scrapes and bruises all over and nearly fell off of an edge somewhere, it happened because they didn’t know what they were getting themselves into – it’s easier to just blame nature for the bad time they had. If you’re planning a camping trip anytime soon, then heed this advice; you have to go prepared with supplies, gear and some outdoors know-how!

There’s a number of things that you need to bring on a hiking trip and then there’s a whole bunch of things that you should just leave back at home. Yes, they say that you can never be too prepared but remember, when you’re hiking up a steep path, you can be carrying too much weight on your shoulders and be wishing you had brought only the essential stuff you needed. You should always have water, first aid, proper boots and a knife. The best knife for camping and hiking is one that serves as both a tool for cutting as well as a weapon, should you need one.

If you go out there all geared up, then you’ll have an amazing hiking and camping trip that will leave you eager for you next chance to go back out there and explore.
