Preparation for your walking trip
Here are some common sense tips to ensure that you are prepared for your excursion.
- Always pack adequate food and water for your walking trip. Ensure that you eat a good breakfast of slow release carbohydrate such as porridge. Take at least a litre of water with you and sip it regularly to reduce the risk of dehydration. Pack foods such as sunflower seeds, chocolate, bananas and trail mix with nuts and seeds to replace the energy that you are losing through walking.
- Always wear clothing in layers as this helps keep you warm. Outer clothing should be warm, waterproof and windproof. Always pack a hat and gloves, as it can become colder at altitude and if the weather turns colder.
- Wear sensible walking boots. These should have a ridged sole and protect your ankles. Ensure that the laces are tied correctly to reduce tripping.
- Pack a torch with spare bulbs and batteries in case of emergency.
- Pack a whistle and use it in emergencies to warn rescuers of your location.
- Always tell others of your intended route and time of return.
- Take an OS map and compass of the area and refer to it to ensure you are going the right way!
