There are certain things you can’t ignore when planning a summer vacation. For example, there is no way around it: Hiking & Camping. These activities require a lot of mental and physical fitness alike. Fortunately, outdoor trips offer plenty of opportunities to train yourself for back-to-work, outdoor life — and much more! Hiking & Camping may not be as glamorous as other outdoor experiences like mountaintop rescues or rock climbing, but they’re important enough that you need to know how to prepare yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically for them!
