Packing for a day long adventure: I like taking rain pants and a good rain jacket, you need a ballcap and a bandana. I like those wraps you can put around your hair or neck. If my hair is long, I braid it, and bring a brush in my backpack. In my little backpack I carry my phone, handheld gps, wallet, paper map, multitool, dogtreats, one snack, handwipes, handsanitizer, toilet paper, chapstick, bug repellent, and journal. You need a snack bag and a water bottle. You need a leash in case your dog is not following your commands, you need a dog bowl for giving water in case you don’t see water for awhile. I don’t like wearing shorts because the metal close to the footrests can get hot, so I like wearing jeans even in the summer. Trail jogging shoes would be the lightest thing I would choose for footwear, but I really prefer the protection and support of hiking boots.
