Wanna try to get out on a hike yourself? Great, then I just have one thing to say to you. Do it!
Hiking must be one of the easiest activities you could devote yourself to. You don’t need any memberships, your body is your tool and the nature is your local. But still you might find it hard to begin, to know where to start. If you enter an outdoor store or search for hiking on the internet, you will shortly hear about of tons of products that you ”have” to have. Terms as Shell jacket, GoreTex, Gaiters, Bivy sacks etc. is used frequently. ”My god, what do they even mean?! And what kind of sleeping pad do I want? What kind of tent? Sleeping bag?” The amount of information can easily be overwhelming and it might seems easier to just forget about it and stay home.
Is it really supposed to be this hard? No it’s not. And it isn’t. That’s why I have put together this site. Here you can find all basic information that you’ll need to get out on a hike, regardless if its a day hike or a longer one.
