I tend to do a lot of walking. I would rather be jogging, but I need to get rid of some weight before that happens This year I am planning to start walking The Appalacian Trail in pieces.
To walk the trail correctly you have to be prepared. Even if you are only taking a short walk. You will need your camera, some water, an energy bar, your cellphone, a small first aid kit, and whatever else you feel that you need. The concern is where are you going to put all of that. In a backpack? I am not too fond of stuff on my back for a short haul. I prefer pants with lots of pockets. Those kind are called 5.11 Tactical pants. The best place I have found these kind of pants is tacticalpantsusa.com. They have everything you might need, and more. Along with free shipping, and extras with most orders.
You gotta give it a try.
