Top 3 Adventure Hacks
1) Wear appropriate footwear
Whether it may be a short hike or a long trek, it is best that you wear appropriate footwear. Trail shoes are best for short hikes while hiking boots are best for technical terrain.
2) Keep gear organized
Often enough, it is hard getting everything inside your backpack. Organize your gear with a dry sack.
3) Stay fueled
Bring food with you that will give you energy – energy bar, trail mix, beef jerky, and high sugar snacks.
