Camping was never something I yearned to do nor -- but it is necessary to get outdoors.
So camping is a necessary evil? Yes and no.
If you're accustomed to the day-to-day luxuries like running water and electricity, then like myself -- you'll start off finding it quite the struggle.
Okay so you’re new to hiking and you want to make sure you’re equipped, let’s first do a reality check. We’ll also start off by assuming that this is only a day hike. I’ll cover multi-day hikes or backpacking in another post. I've learned a lot the hard way so hopefully I can impart some easy advice to you.
