Trekking and backpacking are among my favorite adventures as well. Mountain climbing is also included on my list. I always carry with me all the necessary equipment and tools like kershaw knives, camera, tents and more. I also have a bar of chocolates to combat hypoglycemia on the go.

Simon Greenwhich said...

I also love trekking and backpacking. Camping is also on top my list. I always do camping as part of my recreational outdoor activities after a week of stressful work. As a camper, I always carry with my my survival kit that includes tent, gerber pocket knife, chocolates and sleeping bag.

Walter Fennigan said...

When doing some outdoor activities like hiking and backpacking, I always make sure to carry with me all the important tools and equipment for survival. A cold steel recon 1 is one of the tools I always use most especially when hunting or cutting tough onjects.
