Hiking Checklist - Checklist.com

Posted by 2018 article


Hello, my name is Matt, and I’ve always loved adventure, exploration, and discovery. Recently, I’ve realized that I can experience all three by getting out and hiking. In addition, I’m kind of a planner and always like being prepared, and a good way to do that is to have a hiking checklist. It is quickly becoming a passion of mine. I’m always looking forward to getting out and hiking new trails in my area (Austin, TX).

At the same time I am working to become a freelance web developer so that I can have the freedom to do more of the things I love to do like hiking.

Though I am very much a novice hiker I have some very big goals. My biggest goal is a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail (AT). However, before I can even think about doing that I need to be an established web developer, and a lot of training. To do that I plan on just hiking every day I can.

Following a bottom-up approach, let's begin with your socks. While it may be warm as you begin your hike, always expect it not to last. Remember, the temperature will begin to slip very quickly at altitude, along with an increase in wind. These two elements combined make for chilly conditions if you're not prepared!

Therefore, we recommend light merino wool socks for starters. Merino wool will help keep your feet nice and warm as the temperature decreases and offer moisture management to help combat blisters. Storing a backup pair in your pack for extra layers or replacements for wet conditions is also recommended. As for length, go for a pair that comes part way up your calf, or at least to the top of your hiking boots for optimal comfort. This leads us to your next item to consider, boots.

Please, please, please- for all our sakes, do not go trekking towards a mountain with your favorite pair of tennis or athletic shoes! After spending the summer months guiding guests through the mountains of Nordland Norway, I can tell you that you'll be in for a rough day.
