I’m headed out this morning for a “practice hike” in preparation for my September overnight hiking trip. Things that I have going for me:
1. lots of snacks
(Also, I’m going to a park I’m relatively familiar with — I’ve done all the hiking before, just never in the same day. It’s a level up for me, but it’s not objectively unlikely that I will succeed. Plus, I mean, snacks!)
Things I am worried about:
(Yeah, that’s just me, though, I am Always Worried About Everything. No reason not to go out and have a good day!)
Just as a semi-practical note, any time I do a new hike I try to plan bail-out points along the way. So if I get part way through the planned route and think ‘nope’ there’s an option to cut things short. I’m sure I saw that on some list of tips at some point, and it has been useful at the most unexpected times!
