There are several common fears about traveling as a member of a women's travel group: Will I be the oldest? Will I be the slowest? Will everyone else want to spend a lot of time shopping? (Answers: maybe, could be, possibly but not likely). We get asked these alot either before or after women sign up for a trip. But there is another largely unspoken fear and its time to get it out in the open.
Buying a pair of boots for a backpacking trip or a hiking vacation should be done with careful consideration. Pick the wrong pair of boots and you could end up with feet ranging from uncomfortable to physically harmed with blisters or even tendon problems. It is a task that takes an investment of time and money. But hopefully, you will have this pair of boots for many years and it is worth putting a little investment in on the front end to get the best thing for you.
'Ten Tips' is the perfect companion for every female hiker. It offers well-crafted, not-so-obvious tools that hikers of all experience levels can use. From lacing up your boots the first time to thru-hiking a major trail, this piece will make hiking even more enjoyable.
