How to prepare for a hike in the mountains?
To work well, it is important to have a good rest. Trite, but true.
We all relax in different ways: some prefer languidly sipping cocktails and pour in the palms white sands of the Maldives, someone - to enjoy a real German beer in the pub, someone - millions of times to photograph the Eiffel Tower with the most successful angles.
And some prefer outdoor activities and walks in the mountains. How to prepare for a hike in the mountains on foot?
But the mountain mountains strife, and should not be measured by one yardstick, say, the Crimea and the Caucasus.
The more serious the mountains, so seriously and should be training, equipping and fighting spirit, because even the most studied and footworn mountains are full of surprises and unexpected.
I therefore, relying on our own experience, let me give some advice to novice visitors.
Generally hiking - not a cheap hobby, and if you treat it seriously, then it may require you to impressive financial investments.
Backpacks, tents, mats, sleeping bags
What a tourist without a backpack?
Backpack is not just to be, he should be comfortable and sit in what is said, "on a figure.
When buying a backpack must be measured! You can always find cheaper and more expensive options, but:
1) backpack should not leaky;
2) He must be high quality zippers and fastenings;
3) He must have a sufficient number of branches and pockets (so you do not every time they shake out all the contents of the backpack in search of, for example, slippers, ointments from sprains or another pair of socks);
4) backpack should have a good sit on the back, adjusted for height, and also have an adjustable waist fastening.
Backpacks have a different volume (Volume). Girls and women should not choose backpacks larger than 80 liters, so it is unlikely that they will be able to feel comfortable with such a burden on his shoulders. In principle, women's backpack is the optimum volume of 60 liters, and the best male version - 80-100 liters. But if you walk far and long, then you should not buy the best big backpack. First, it will always be present temptation to take anything extra. Secondly, the better you accurately and efficiently upakuete backpack from the bottom to the top of the valve, what you will walk with a half-empty, in which every downhill, uphill jogging cans corned beef will be kicking in the sides of the package of pasta or a removable shoes.
For raw, rainy or snowy weather, you can use special covers, which further protects backpacks and their contents from moisture.
By choosing a tent is addressed seriously and better in this regard to seek assistance from professionals. Particular attention should be given as:
• quality of the material (and awning and inner tent should be waterproof);
• seams (they must be well glued);
• arcs (better if they would be aluminum);
• reliability of lightning, pegs, fixtures;
• presence of vestibules in the tent (they'll come in handy for storing things).
And, of course, the important role played by the weight and number of tents in her township. What you "spare the place, if they still nobody will use? And on the weight and volume of the tent is sure to affect. The most popular two-, three-and four-tent. But for lovers of solitude can be found and solitary.
Mat - the people "scum" - a thing in the campaign virtually irreplaceable. He falls to the bottom of the tent, heat insulation, protects against moisture and often masks the roots, stones and other irregularities of the relief. It is possible to take a nap in the afternoon sun during the lunch halt.
Sleeping to choose on the basis of that, what time of year you're going to mainly use it: in the summer, the off-season, winter. If you do not take account of this - in fact, the main! - Factor, most likely you will have to freeze in winter or start a family sweats in the summer. But, based on my personal experience, I will say that it is better perebdet than nedobdet.
Do not neglect this small but very valuable object. The design is simple: in essence, is a piece of "scum" (mat) with attached eraser, dresses directly to your fifth point, and allows you to touch down virtually anywhere. Pohodniki either do not remove it, or wear on top of the backpack, so at any time "sidushkoy" could take advantage.
You can buy or make myself.
Sometimes they are simply called "Petsl" (from Petzl - the most popular manufacturer). It is difficult to overestimate their importance: to organize a fire, cook food, commonplace to find something in the tent at night - without fanarika course work, but with great difficulty, and perhaps even with the injuries.
First of all, the glasses should protect the eyes from ultraviolet radiation. Good points, especially with a high degree of protection will cost is not cheap, but it is better to abandon the purchase altogether, than to buy cheap glasses without filters anywhere on the market. Harm there will be more than good: in such spectacles pupil expands and ultraviolet light, from which the filters were supposed to protect, penetrates the eye and strikes the retina.
