Transcript back to backpacking 10 tips before you begin: 1. Learn some basics of wilderness travel from books, classes or other hikers. 2. Develop a good attitude about the outdoors—the idea is not to conquer the wilderness but rather to co-exist peacefully with nature. 3. Get some good information on how to choose a backpack and how to pack it. 4. Gather what you think are the necessities—and cut the load in half. But do consider these accessories: a camera and lenses, compass, field glasses and maps, including contour maps. 6. Carry resource material. You'll want to identify a tree, name a bird, check historical dates or locate some boundary. Do take your choice lightly- paperbacks over hardbounds and photocopy pages or articles instead of carrying the whole magazine. 7. Read everything you can find on the area you'll be hiking. And maybe carry a book whose mood matches your locale; perhaps one that was written about that area by someone who lived there or hiked it. 8. Work out a way to take field notes on the move. You'll have more ideas and input than you'll want to trust to memory, so catch it as it comes. 9. Be in good physical shape before you hike. Practice rhythmic breathing. Yoga is especially helpful. 10. And this especially—take someone along who knows more than you do!
