Be prepared is a wonderful motto in every aspect of your life. Being unprepared can cause more issues & problems than anyone would want to deal with. Of course, no one is prepared for everything but most of us can do a better job of being prepared for everyday life and our next adventure. Camping and hiking are no different! When that new tent shows up, be sure to set it up at least once before trying to do it after a long hike or in the dark. Is there fresh drinking water available to where you are going to camp? Are there facilities along your hiking trail? Do you have a nature friendly bug repellent? Remember that awesome site you camped at 5 years ago, it may be completely revamped now. Being prepared with quality equipment for your next adventure will save you and your group from unwanted issues. Run through your check list and make sure all your equipment is dependable before heading out. Check out our equipment and xtras at Camping Outdoors LLC to see what else you need to be prepared.
