Salt Water Filtration for Hiking at the Beach?
The only way to get rid of salt is through distillation. It;s not complicated or particularly expensive on a small scale, but requires a lot of equipment. Your best bet is to find out where you can get fresh water along the way.1. Hiking with a mule or two?I upvoted their answers and your question.Many trails are serviced by a packer, and you can hire the packer to haul in your stuff on a mule and also haul you in on mule or horse, and then haul your stuff and you out at a predetermined time. This is much, much, much less effort than handling the mules yourself, and probably less expensive than owning your own mules.As we got older, my husband and I resorted to packers more (although not exclusively). The packer would haul our stuff to our chosen "base camp", we would hike in, and then we would go on from there (without equines). With this strategy, we avoided carrying the packs on the steepest, longest day of the trip, gained some acclimatization without the burden of packs, and could get to a point where there was ample running water. (Sierras, Rockies.) We did not regress to the point where we had to be hauled in ourselves; at that point, I know that we would have been utterly incapable of managing all the tasks attendant on two mules.Caveat: If you are experienced with horses and mules, the answer could be different, but it does not sound as though you are. And if you are taking a long trip (say, as an estimate, 50 miles or more), the answer could be different. So my advice is: (1) See your doc for a complete physical and get advice on how to get in much better shape, and stay in shape.(2) Get a highly recommended personal trainer and religiously do the exercises your doc and PT recommend. The upkeep of a personal trainer (PT) until you learn how to do the exercises properly is less than the indefinite upkeep of a mule. Return to the PT at intervals to make sure your form is remaining correct. (3) Go on several mule packing trips with a packer -- a packer who will teach you the essentials of mule packing. You may change your mind after wrangling a mule yourself.(4) Consider a llama. See this question and answerFinally, 65 or 70 is not really old, if you are in good health. You can, with religious effort, take years off your effective "hiking age", provided you do not have underlying health issues.2. In spanish, how do you say Trekking or Hiking? - Thanks!!?the phrase: 'Trekking or Hiking' is this: El emigrar o el ir de excursin3. Yosemite early December hiking, need clothing game plan?It relies upon on what island you are vacationing. specifically, shorts and t-shirts are each and all of the clothing you will want as Hawaii is heat & humid all 3 hundred and sixty 5 days. in basic terms purchase a sweatshirt in case you get chilly. you will likely purchase touristy stuff besides, why not a sweatshirt? have relaxing!4. What is the best diet for a teenage girl?You did not say how much you weigh. Are you sure you need to lose any? Do not compare yourself to others. If you want to be at your ideal weight, all you have to do is eat right, lots of whole grains, veggies, lean meats and proteins (nuts, eggs, etc) and fruits. Also make sure you are getting lots of calcium-very important for a teenage girl-by eating dairy and green leafy veggies. Then, exercise of course. Do fun things like swimming, biking, hiking, and going for long walks after you eat. By the way, the best way to get whole grains if you do not like wheat bread and brown rice is to eat lots of whole grain cold cereals and oatmeal. Good luck!5. Splitting up weight hiking as a couple/mixed gender groupSomeone who has overweight is not normally able to carry more, so weight is not as important. The height would be more adequate... Muscle strength is not much important when you go on long hikes... Strength does not translate directly to endurance, often it's the opposite - people with smaller muscles are more endure and are actually able to carry more on greater distances. The most practical solution is not to care about fairness, but of outcome for the group. If someone is doing poorly that day, stays behind etc., take some things from them and give it to the best performing members of the group. As the result, the fastest will go a bit slower, the slowest will go a bit faster and the group as the whole will perform much better
