Traveling through the forest is not as simple as you think, you should prepare yourself for skills and listening the shared experiences of their predecessors or below.
The first thing is to choose a forest to conquer and explore. Of course to be primary forest. Camping rallying place to a residential area about 15km is the closest fit. Especially where there is water such as rivers and streams. If you go, you should first consult with the Rangers, or the locals. There is a guide as possible.
Secondly, each participant must prepare very good health. Since climbing to the toughness and endurance of the legs. Many people had a muscle strain, cramping but spent the trip. Fitness training should run twenty days earlier.
The preparation paraphernalia!
+ Clothing: You should bring a few clothes lightweight materials against rain, mosquitoes, squeezed; A soft clothes, warm material to wear to bed in the evening. (For very cold night in the woods); Clothing, all (brought many to also replace the wet because when wet, wet clothing can also underwear is impossible to wet); scarves, head cap, glove.
In the summer, wear a T-shirt and a jacket inside out long hand to ensure you will not abraded by scratching trees must also protect you against colds due to sweating and meet forest wind.
+ Shoes: The shoes you should bring very thick, with high friction.
Hats for the bush, I recommend using cloth hats, wide-brimmed soft and instead of caps. Wide-brimmed hats Fabric has many advantages compared to the cap. The siblings see detailed as follows:
Soft, compact, very easy to book neatly into the backpack when not in use
Wide rim, sunshades, rain much better than cap
When underground in the jungle, or dense forests, underground posture always head forward. Hats help protect the head and surface color from the leaves, twigs better pointy cap.
And simple, can be used as a fan to overheat. :))
I think that most people hang out, travel aka Phượt often use a bandana of the South (or Cambodia), loud and long. I never used to like to go scarf forest, as if to coquetry, or keep warm neck when it was too cold, but to field, good health protection, the uncertainty that the bandana Where abide.
Bring a hand towel 1 lux, cotton fabric, length from 40cm -> 60cm is just beautiful. Believe me, brothers and sisters will not regret when bring one face towel good for long trips where it has so many advantages & convenient to use, so I listed also.
Will the washcloth, towel during travel.
In the hot sun, instead of a hat. Let wet washcloths, hooded top, cool steam will help protect you from sunstroke, sunburn great! When dry steam, wet back and put on the next.
When climbing, sit snuggled often very tired, drenched in sweat. I had just a damp cloth to wipe the sweat, yet still nothing more wonderful
You do not use these backpacks Army, really, much should you tell military backpack for big, wide, contain many items. But the fact you have to go the long trips, or themselves to carry his belongings only. Balo military has the advantage of cheap, durable, broad, but equally significant drawback, as it is:
No hugging people when worn, military Balo has manufactured and designed simple, usually wearing this party bucket, bucket rather tight across his back. Wearing so very tired, especially when climbing the cliffs, or on the big ramp.
Wearing a shoulder pain: I swear always, once I military backpack with about 15kg widgets, walk half a day, arriving 2 aching shoulder. The reason is that the backpack strap with a small army, no mattress, it’s as simple as 1 fiber cloth only. When traveling, shoulder strap extremely painful squeeze on (of course, as you villagers, they used to wear then do not say)
Very easy to dropped items: the military Balo outer pockets for storing small items, with cover but tie up, with large clearance. Very vulnerable to dropping the small stuff in the process.
Please buy the backpack & dedicated quality, do not regret money for the backpack owns major brands such as The North Face or Jack Wolfskin (of course should buy genuine and genuine, but fake designer goods This fake brand full of market, price is only a couple of hundred thousand VND 1 huge one). The special-purpose backpack travel for the big brands are usually produced with very high quality, with many advantages:
Backpack very good materials, from fabric, plastic until the lock backpack are durable, long time but still good to use.
Design the container very scientific. They designed small drawers inside, each separated us but can optionally arranging personal items so compact, the best fit.
Strap system, the back of the backpack (the part adjacent to the back) are studied and designed to wear comfortable, breathable …
Etc. Well, see, I can wear cheap clothes, to go grocery forest. But the backpack, I have to use this kind of good quality, but uses replicas, fakes, or inappropriate items are extremely tired when traveling.
+ Tents, ropes (though), sheets, sleeping bags, jungle knives, lighters, candles burning, pots and pans, kettle super.
Some basic medicines like water sterilizing tablets, wind oil, reduce fever, abdominal pain, antibiotics, bandages, red medicine, medical alcohol, anti-mosquito cream, squeeze, … (depending on the number of days to go Forest expects that brings the amount of clothing, medicines for both)
Some food can be stored longer and easier to use, more energy, such as dried shrimp paste, sausage, canned food, dried food, noodles packets, beef jerky, salted roasted peanuts, dry packaged vegetables, biscuits , sweets, chocolate, Sparkling C to strengthen the resistance and especially coffee or a small bottle of wine. Number belongings would be divided among the team members volunteered to carry.
