ok, this is the first of two open questions, I thought I would ask two good friends of mine some opinions of something they are both experienced on with the intention they could respond on their blogs.
First gonna ask my bro in law Jim, on hiking. Jim is a keen walker and lover of many things outdoors. I like camping but I have only been experienced on camping on the normal organised type affairs in places like the New Forest and Yorkshire. I have been asked by a friend to go camping (unsure whether UK or abroad yet) rucksack style (ie no proper toilets and other civilised things) and need a bit of advice.
Rather just use google and go to such and such a link for this, I wanted to ask Jim being a veteran of this genre, what is the ideal way to pack and prepare for this sort of trip.
Some of the things I need to think about is food, stuff thats good for you, tastes good and is easy to carry. I have a reasonable rucksack and lightweight tent but not much else, would need to consider other things like small first aid kit and other things, where as minimising the weight of stuff to carry.
