Heavy Hiking

Walk in nature covering a track is an activity of much pleasure to many peopleHowever, before performing a heavy walk, great physical requirement or with long duration (several days), you need a good physical, psychological and logistic preparation for the activity does not become a torture. Always remember, however, that a little suffering can mean a stimulus to overcome challenges. So, the first motto for those who find themselves in a situation like this is keep the persistence.

Some requirements are important to perform heavy pens. First, local knowledgeis essential. If you do not know the trail that will go, it is essential to be accompanied by an experienced guide. To ensure a good guideline and no one will get lost, especially in hard to reach places, where often the trail is not clearly demarcated, worth the use of GPS, compass and map. Remember: no GPS map does not work (and no batteries!).

 

In addition to being physically prepared, make sure that it is crucial to be right psychologically to withstand the hostility to the free life often presents. Stay twoor three days without showering can be uncomfortable for most women, for example. Load a backpack incorrectly set and heavy more than I have can also be uncomfortable for most people. But, if you’re ready psychologically, not carelessof the physicalhe will make all the difference at the end of a long day!

 

Good equipment is another fundamental requirement. Make sure that you have a waterproof anorak, a good tent, sleeping bag for cold temperatures, thermal insulator, a good boot already softened, flashlight and extra batteries, stove, etc.Also, always try to take the appropriate clothing for every situation. The type of material to be used depends on the location, duration of activity, and temperatures will face. The equipment you will use on a hike in Brazil, in the summer, will be completely different from the one being used on a tour in Patagonia, in the winter, for example. If it is appropriate, then just put the Backpack on the back and a nice trail!

 

Here is the list of basic equipment for those who will face a heavy walk several days:

 

Map and compasslearn to use them before, or will a lot.

 

Tent for two or three people – Share the burden between users is ideal, not burdening anyone. Make sure that she can take if rain precipitation season.

 

Thermal insulator and sleeping bag.
Cargo Bag at least 55 litres.
Backpack attack – With about of 30 litres, to take the minimum necessary if you need to make a short walk or climb a ridge within the course, with return to the camping site.
Stove and cookwareWith enough fuel for all meals. We also suggest split between users in the same tent as well as the food.
Flashlight with extra batteries always good to test the lamp before leaving home to not have unwanted surprises. The LED flashlights are a great option.
Anorak.
Food for every day and one more Take too much is extra weight. Take less hungry. Is balanced. Don’t let missing or left and look for light and energy bringing things like nuts, dried fruit, pasta, soups, etc.
Clothes – take extra parts, hot and dry, packed in plastic bags to keep them away from moisture. Remember that, even though in Brazil, the cold can kill (hypothermia). The temperature in the winter you can easily reach some degrees below zero in some places.
Types of clothes Try the synthetic fabrics such as capilene, dry fit, tactel, suplex and the like. They dry quickly, they turn away the sweat of contact with the body (which allows you to make him feel dry”) and are very light, ideal for any climate. A tip: you want to dry it overnight? Keep it inside the sleeping bag. The warmth of your body will take care of the rest (the same goes for the synthetic material Socks). But don’t try to do this with cotton clothes. In addition to dry, let still an uneasy feeling of moisture during the night.
Hiking bootgood quality, preferably with the high pipe, to protect him from twists (very frequent when we’re tired). Must be softened before a long walk.
Good socksUse a thin underneath and another thicker on top, protecting yourunwanted foot blisters (while a sock farm on another, your feet stay out of conflicts that cause the bubbles). Don’t forget to get her at the end of the day to dry for the next day. Browse to apply a TALC and/or alcohol in gel to clean your feetafter a long day of walking, so get in each camp, getting rid of fungus and bacteria.
Walking canethis is not an essential item, but will especially in places where there are steep hills and decide. Your knees will thank you!
First aid kittake only what you can use and don’t forget that, more important than rescue, is not to worsen the condition of the victim.
Cell phone keep it turned off to not spend the battery and, in case of emergency, have useful numbers. Tell at least one person in family or friends where you’re going, which track do you intend to do and when you want to go back. In the case of rescue, this information is valuable.
