Top 3 Adventure Hacks

1) Stay hydrated

You sweat about half to one quart of fluid for every hour you walk in the heat – and around 3 quarts if you walk uphill. Thus it is important to stay hydrated.

2) Filter your water before drinking

Backcountry water must be treated for Glardia Lamblia, a parasite that causes gastrointestinal upset. You can boil water or use a dependable water filter system.

3) Stay fueled

Bring food with you that will give you energy – energy bar, trail mix, beef jerky, and high sugar snacks.
