Dressing appropriately for the occasion is always of vital importance. Is it the office you are attending or is it a date you are planning for the evening? Dressing correctly is what counts.
This is even truer when it comes to having to dress for a day out. Mother Nature can be unpredictable as we all know so we really do need to take all the necessary precautions that are vital. More so for the urban dwellers who are not used to the vagaries of the out doors.
Back-packers and campers who have been unfortunate in getting caught with less gear than needed will tell you their sorry stories. You will come across several stories of people loosing a finger or a toe to hypothermia all because they did not know what to pack for their outdoor camping adventure.
Imagine getting caught in a heavy down pore or in colder conditions like snow for that matter of fact. If you have not packed some thing just that extra for such an eventuality then you will suffer dearly. So if you are planning a trip out doors and are doing so for the first time check out the following we have for you.
In cold weather when you are planning a trip out make sure you have enough warm cover. Layer your clothes to fit you snugly as loose clothing will only be uncomfortable when moving. Especially when you will be carrying a back-pack: If you feel warm during the climb then it will be easy to take off a layer of clothing.
When you stop I can assure you, you will need it. This is because the body warms up while walking, once you stop the body will cool down and you will need that extra layer. So do not step out with just what seems comfortable just then. Think ahead of what it is going to be out doors.
To insure you maintain a constant body temperature make sure you do not go bouncing up the hill as soon as you hit the out doors. This will cause you to break out in a sweat and that then will become a problem. So go easy up the mountain tracks, and insure your breathing remains as normal as possible. This should be your best indication for speed. Never get even the slightest bit out of breath.
