My best friend and I are going to hike the Appalachian Trail this weekend, but what do we need? In every movie I’ve seen it seems like the main characters have all this outdoorsy equipment just laying around like they live in the mountains and go hiking every day, but lets be honest, I’m a Florida girl and our largest mountain is probably the land fill. Where do people get this hiking stuff? How do they pack it all in one bag? What’s a necessity and what will I regret bringing?

This packing list will consist of hiking boots, raingear, snacks, water, a backpack, sleeping pad, cooking gear, a tent, and so much more! Thankfully all my questions can be answered and resolved by Florida Outdoor Academy. They have all the equipment to rent and advice I will need for day trips to week long ones.
