Often I get asked similar questions. What to take on a day hike? What’s in my day pack? What do I need to start hiking? Well, I don’t profess to know it all, and I do not consider myself in any way a professional or expert, but I do get out often and make the most of the outdoors. And, so, in this video, I discuss some of these topics, and share what I wear, pack and take with me, as well a few safety tips and advice to help out. I’m sure you all have your own ideas and tips, so please feel free to share them with us in the comments.
