Top 3 Adventure Hacks

1) Stay safe Mini LED Flashlight

Of course, a flashlight, headlamp, and whistle are important must-haves when going for a long hike or overnight camping.

2) Stay warm

Did you know that consuming too little water can aggravate hypothermia? Stay hydrated, dress in layers, carry a hate, and bring rain gear for long treks. Avoid cotton as it can absorb water and keep you cold.

3) Stay informed

A Wilderness Permit must be obtained from the Yosemite Association prior hiking. Moreover, a special stamp is needed to enter the Mount Whitney Zone.
