                     Stuff to Pack in your Backpack

     Before you head for a faraway hiking adventure with your backpack, make sure that you take all the things you'll need while on the trail.

Here's a checklist that will make your backpacking adventure a more pleasant and memorable experience.

- Backpack - Obviously, you'll need a backpack! Pick one that's comfortable and fits well. A properly fitted backpack is essential. You are going hiking and the last thing you need is a backpack that gouges into your shoulders. Make sure yours fits properly.

- Quick Drying Towel - Widely available in many stores. You donít want a heavy, damp towel on your backpack, do you?

- Walking Shoes - Pick comfortable shoes. They're going to be with you every step of the way.

- Underwear and socks - These go without saying.

- Long Underwear - This depends on the season and place where you are traveling. You might also wear your long underwear when you stay in hotels that do not have adequate well-heating systems.

- Pillow Case  - Pillow case is an essential thing to keep when you stay in backpacker hotels.

- Sleeping Bag  - Even when you stay in backpacker hotels. Select a lightweight sleeping bag. Down is the best type of sleeping bag. Yes, they do cost a bit more, but the prices is well worth it. Feathers are very light and you can compress a down sleeping bag into a very small package.

- Passport  - Donít even think of leaving the country without it.

- Band Aids - Itís better to be prepared than not at all.
