TO INTRODUCE MYSELF
Hello, my name is Lonnie and I would like to welcome you to my website, it is my sincere hope that I can assist you relative to Your BackPacking needs, Before getting into that I would like to relate a little more about myself.
I was born and raised in North Carolina in what’s called the Sandhills, at present though, my Wife and I live in western North Carolina where we have enjoyed living for the most part of seventeen years. This area offers much in the way of trails, some longer and some more of a challenge than others.
My favorite trail to hike has been the Appalachian Trail, I have been able to hike parts of the A.T. in Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia. I look forward to hiking more of it in the future.
A MOMENT IN TIME
I was hiking on the A.T. in Virginia not far from Damascus in Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, it had been snowing and I came upon a fresh Bear track, that’s about as close to seeing a Bear in the wild than ever before, I guess. That was just one of those moments in time in the outdoors that has been etched on my mind. There were other events though that grasp my attention.
One day my Wife and I were picking blueberries, this was in the summer and it was fairly warm, now, this was not while we were hiking this was at one of those places you go and pay so much for so much, anyway, as usual, my wife was busy and enjoying picking blueberries.
It was cloudy and looked as though it might rain, sure enough, it did come to a shower just enough to soak my dear Wife well. It did not take long till she started having chills, I realized what was happening so I quickly got her to the car and removed her wet clothing and turn the heat on to warm her. She was experiencing a mild case of Hypothermia. We made it home, she was OK once she got dried off and her body temperature returns to normal.
Those of us who like the outdoors want also to be safe as possible and to actually enjoy the time we have allotted. In order to achieve that we need to be prepared and outfitted, not necessarily with all the latest and greatest BackPacking equipment but quality gear that will fulfill your needs in the environment and terrain that you chose to hike.
Seeing a Bear in the wild could be either a good thing or a bad thing, one thing for sure though if we are not prepared, for example, Hypothermia, can ruin an excursion are even a short hike if a person is not prepared and knowledgeable about what to do. It is my desire to help you to avoid that as well as other things that could ruin or at the least dampen your trip.
QUALITY BACKPACKING GEAR
I have mentioned one problem so far that has the potential to aggravate or even result in tragedy, that being Hypothermia, however, there are other things that I will bring to your attention in order for your hike to be as worry-free as possible for you to be able to focus on the beautiful outdoors.
It is my goal to direct your attention to BackPacking Gear that will meet your needs. I will also provide some knowledge base that can help you in making your decisions.
