Their stages for preparing and going on a hike included Planning, in which you can use the Internet, Google Maps, and a variety of other tools to plot your route. From there you, move on to Documenting it with photos and videos, Then later you can Organize your media and then Share it online. They even have a section on Big Trips Made Easy that’s worth a glance as well.
Who knew that hiking could become so complicated. I always figured I found a trail, but on my boots, and went. Guess I need to put ore thought into my next venture.
