 Planning will help ensure your trip goes smoothly, and will allow you to account for any dangers that you may face on your adventure.
 
Here are the first things I do before planning any hiking trip.

Gear Considerations:

The gear I choose is directly related to my pre-trip planning. By analyzing what conditions and obstacles I will likely face, I can then start to put together a bag that will compliment my skills, and keep me safe in the face of any potential dangers.

Route Considerations:
 
What water sources are along my planned route? This will tell me how much water I need to carry, how many water bottles I need to pack, and what type of filtration system I should carry.

What are the average temperatures and weather patterns that I can expect along my route? This will tell me what type of clothing, shelter, and weather related gear I need to pack.
