The Winehiker posted this excellent little article today listing the basic gear necessary for a hike into the backcountry. It’s an excellent primer for someone just getting into wilderness hiking and not really sure what they should be carrying with them. There are some excellent items on the list that you should never hit the trail without, such as sunglasses, a map, and compass, plus quite a bit more.
Once you’ve warmed up with that article, head over to the main site at CaliforniatWineHikes.com to find tons of other fun and interesting stuff, including a comprehensive list of treks that combine two of the best things in the world, namely hiking and wine. Sounds like a great combination to me. 🙂
