Why I Love Camping and Hiking

The health benefits of camping are plenteous for both adults and young people. When you’re spending time at home in your usual routine, you may not realize just how much you’re missing away from nature. It is through camping that I learned how to build a campfire, how to cook, bathe, answer nature’s call and sleep the cavemen’s way! And most importantly, the camaraderie that my friends and I built during our camping days that lasted us over 30 years and still counting.   I also learned that during a hike in a dense jungle on an island, we need to be properly attired. You don’t necessarily need to be attired with tactical clothing but  if you have some tactical clothing on, your limbs will be well protected from bites, scratches and superficial injuries should you get cut by twigs, branches and falls during a hike in a jungle.

My first camping trip was when I was 13 years old. That was in December 1986 and the camping spot was at one of the many beautiful secluded islands with pristine waters off Pangkor Island. My classmates and I joined some boys and girls from another school in the trip organized by my patrol leader (girl guides society).  That was one of the best times of my life and I got hooked on camping after my maiden camping trip. After this camping trip, we had several more camping trips organized by the same teacher.  If I could turn back the clock, I would turn it back to the year 1986 and relive that year all over again.

The very first time I went hiking in a jungle, I wore shorts and short sleeves tee and my limbs ended up with kisses from mozzies and scratches from twigs.  We were lost in the jungle and our 13-year old male guide finally brought us down several hours later and it was already super duper dark inside the jungle. That was one of the scariest experiences in my life! Nonetheless, we had SO MUCH fun and drama!  And you know what? I am still Facebook friends with this 13-year old male guide whom I met during my first camping trip until today.  That is why everyone should experience camping and hiking to build friendships that will last a lifetime.

Tactical clothing are built to withstand the elements, and the abuse of wear and tear.  These specially tailor clothing are a solid choice for the adrenaline junkies and adventurous travelers. If you’re into mountain climbing, jungle trekking or hiking, it would be a smart choice to get some tactical clothing and womens or mens tactical boots to stay safe from the elements.
