When we were on vacation at the beginning of April I found us places to go walking - or what I thought was just walking. 99% of them turned out to be hiking trails. We were not prepared for this, but decided to give it a try. We liked it. There was one day where we hiked for a total of three hours. Not three hours all at once, but a total of three hours.
During one of our hiking trips we found branches and turned them into our walking sticks. When we got home, we really spruced up the sticks. We used special oil on them to protect them and put leather strips on them for a handle grip. We now take them every time we go hiking.
We do the following when we go hiking: we wear boots instead of just sneakers, we bring water, I have to bring tissues, we bring our walking sticks, and some times we bring our digital camera (as you could tell from the vacation pics). If we're going to be there near lunch time, we will bring a granola bar or something to tide us over, in case we should get the hungy horrors. What else whould we bring? Since we're new to this, I'm sure that there's stuff that we haven't thought of. Any help is greatly appreciated!
We knew of some places to go hiking and went there, but I took it a step further and went online and found tons of places. Now I wonder where we will hike next.
SparkPeople got me hooked on exercising, which in turn got me into an active vacation, which in turn got me hooked on hiking. Thanks SP!!!
