A successful camping or backpacking trip means going prepared. Before you go on a hike or backpacking
trip, ensure you plan and prepare the proper equipment, maps, knowledge, and the required permit.
Here are great tips to ensure a hassle‐free trip:

* Always carry extra water, food, matches or lighter, and foul weather gear.
*Technology is also a helpful tool to make the experience comfortable, however, cell phones or GPS may
not work in some areas.
* Always make sure someone knows your plans – when you are due back and who to call when you are
overdue. Search and rescue can take several days. It is also expensive and you may be charged for it.
* Bring proper clothes, food and gear. Proper clothing usually means polypro, fleece and wool – cloth
that will stay warm when you get wet. Cotton is a bad idea. Also stay away from denims and jeans,
especially when it’s raining.
