Hiking camping equipments

  1. 1. Camping Equipments.The right camping equipments for hiker2008 West Pass Hunter Campsiteby HOSTMEI R on NOVEMBER 30, 20112008 West Pass Hunter CampsiteVolunteer Robin Vroegop was drawn for the first time for participation in the three-and-a-half day 2008 Sambar Deer Quota Hunt on SVNWR. She carefully planned her foodand gear, attempting to pack lightly and strike a balance between comfort andconvenience, and a back-breaking gear portage over the beach. For the most part, sheaccomplished her goal, but would add the following to the next December Hunt: Morewater; Comfortable waterproof snake boots (instead of waders); and a lightweight 10 X 10tarp. THIS PHOTO HAS SOME DETAILED NOTES.Question by Gothic Martha™: What kind of camping gear, equipment &essentials do I need?I am taking my family camping in a few weeks. What kind of camping equipment do Ineed?I have a small list of what I have so far:1. Tent2. Sleeping bags3. plates and silverware4. food (but what kind?)Best answer:Answer by akninjaFood- Ramen soup or some other easy food like that. Instant rice is easy, or cous-cous (asort of grain/pasta thing, it‟s tasty if you get the flavored kind). Also, oatmeal forbreakfast. Burritos are pretty easy to make, too. Anything that is easy to clean is good(mac and cheese is extraordinarily hard to clean, believe it or not, when you have limitedwater to use).Clothing- non-cotton clothes (no jeans) Nylon is good, as well as polypropylene orpolyester. Go to REI and ask them questions, they should be able to answer most of them.BRING SPARE CLOTHES.

Hiking clothingThe right clothing for hikerClothing stopby HOSTMEI R on NOVEMBER 30, 2011Clothing stopIt warmed up quickly on the trail as we headed up and up and up.Question by luv2drinkcoffee: Best clothes to wear hiking in Montana?Best clothes to wear hiking in Montana? Going there next week. I am not a big hiker so Ihave no clue what to bring!Best answer:Answer by JackMost important thing is your boots. If you don‟t have a good pair of walking boots, you‟regoing to have problems. Also remember you have to break them in, so you‟ll have to wearthem for a few hours a day in advance. If you don‟t, your feet will get destroyed. Whilewe‟re on the feet, walking socks are good, though ski socks (or any really thick socks) willdo. Waterproof socks if you can find any =DOther than that, you‟ll want to make sure you‟ve got some waterproofs (top and bottom).Other than that, normal clothes should be good. Trick is to dress in layers, so if you gettoo hot or cold you can simply adjust it, rather than having a massive jacket so you‟reeither too hot or too cold =DHave fun =PKnow better?

  9. 9. The right cookware for hikingHome sweet homeby HOSTMEI R on NOVEMBER 26, 2011[ EDI T]Home sweet homeWe bought our campervan from Antony at Chester Street Backpackers in Christchurchfor NZ ,550 (approximately US ,970). It‟s a 1988 Toyota Town Ace "Super Extra" withabout 275,000 km (about 170,000 miles) on it and more than a few dents in the sides andfront, which we think give the van character.It‟s fairly common practice for travelers to buy old vehicles here and use them to tour thecountry, then turn around and sell them to a fellow traveler to do the same. We‟ll belooking to sell our van right around the start of summer here, which is apparently the besttime to sell a van because of the high demand. Our hope is that we can at least make backthe money we paid for it. We had to pay cash for the van, so we hung aroundChristchurch for several days withdrawing the daily maximum from the ATM until wecould get enough cash.It didn‟t come with any cooking equipment, so we were told we should go to a place calledthe Super Shed to find what we needed. It was described as the last stop before the dump,a place for people to bring household items that they would otherwise throw away. Manyitems are also salvaged from the trash and cleaned/polished/fixed up. Based on thesedescriptions, I was pretty hesitant to go there to purchase the items we‟d be using toprepare our food. I pictured a huge warehouse with piles of trash that we‟d have to pickthrough. Seth, on the other hand, was thrilled by the prospect of such a place andconvinced me that we should take a look.He was totally right. Although everything needed a thorough scrubbing, we got someincredible bargains and walked out with all of our cutlery and an organizer, two kitchenknives, bowls, plates, cups, mugs, a can opener, a bottle opener, a straw basket, twocamping chairs and a sun umbrella for a grand total of .50. My personal favorite sectionwas the "10 items for " aisle. None of the outdoor furniture had a price on it, so you had tojust find an employee, show them what you had picked up, and they would eyeball aprice. We still had to purchase some camping cookware that we weren‟t able to find at theSuper Shed, but we left that place with huge smiles on our faces.

The Digital Photography BookThe Digital Photography Book, Volume 2Question by andrea_459207: Is it a good idea to rent rock climbing shoesfrom sports equipment stores??Do u think it‟s a good idea to rent a pair of rock hiking climbing rope shoes sat sportcheck or mountain co-op?? do they rent out good ones or they rent out old wreck lookingones?? will the rock climbing shoes feel loose since a lot of people have worn them?? doesnormal running shoes work almost the same as rock climbing shoes if I‟m not renting therock climbing shoes?? please help me!!Best answer:Answer by ?You should be able to rent a decent pair of shoes from an outfitter. (if you haven‟t beenclimbing much, you may not noticed a difference anyway). Typically good outfitters selllast years shoes and restock their supply at the end of each season. As for fit, just try on acouple of different sizes, each manufacturer differs slightly in size and fit anyway. No,normal running shoes do not make for good climbing shoes. There is too much sole onthem which will roll out under your foot and edges of the rock. You‟d be better offwearing a heavy hiking boot or work boot. I‟d just go with the rentals you‟ll have morefun.Good luck climb safe and have funWhat do you think?

Tie it off, cut the excess.When you are done climbing stick the baking soda balls inside your shoes.Let them air out! If you put sweat damp shoes in your bag and leave them there, they‟llget funky.I have heard of people giving them a shot of Lysol, but I wouldn‟t try it.

  20. 20. { Comments on this entry are closed }Inside Smarts Mountain Towerby ADMI N on NOVEMBER 29, 2011Inside Smart hiking Mountain TowerQuestion by MRCOOL: Is pet smart good for socializing my 8 month GermanShepherd puppy?So basically when my dog was a younger puppy I could only find small dogs to play withhim but he met sooooo many of my friends and family, short and tall he met them all. Buta week and half of bad weather kept us inside he started to get scared of tall people butwas still okay with small children and friends that were average height but then anothertwo weeks later he started to bark in a low tone but not lunging or growling, nothing toshow signs of aggression. He is trained to the point where he‟ll track with his nose,sit,stayto a certain point, lay down, speak on command and shake paws. Hes very friendly tofriends cautious of big people as was demonstrated at pet smart where he started barkingat everyone. But when a small dog passed by he was waggin his tail and wanted to play.When I signed up for training the trainer told me he just needed to get used to manysituations and even suggested to join her facebook page called (paws on the shore) wherehe would meet many other dogs and situations on a hike. So I‟m wondering does it seemlike a good training plan for my scaredy cat shepherd. If not please tell me of bettertraining place near york region or Toronto, that you have experienced. Thank You.Best answer:Answer by King Les The LoftyThe socialisation period ended when Pup became 13 weeks old, although if well startedbefore that it can continue through 16 weeks old.Although everyone calls it “socialisation”, that is actually a bad term, deluding peoplesuch as yourself into thinking it means playing with people & pups. A more accurate termwould be exposure or familiarisation. The purpose is to (once Pup trusts you) expose it –from a distance PUP considers safe – to every movement, reflection, scent, sight, sound,texture to be found in its environment. It should be done on a 6ft/2m lead where thereare NO dogs running loose, with Pup allowed to try to “explore in all directions at once”except when you need to haul it away from dangerous or disgusting things, or from ascared human. And if Pup wants to sit & think about a new thing, or to hide behind you,you should let it, patiently waiting still & silent until Pup decides to ignore or investigate
  21. 21. this new thing, whereupon you praise it – and, if it is still close enough, give it a rub orpat of encouragement.
