Me and my fiancee are both in our early 20's and have recently really got into the idea of hiking. We have both camped out before but with the security of having a car to lug it all around.
Would appreciate anyones views on hiking, and I am sure there are some really obvious do's and dont's that we may have missed. We have got our new tent and we have good quality backpacks and in the process of buying the "gadgets".
We intend to go somewhere relatively close to home first as we are fortunate enough to have the wealds on our doorstep.
