It seems like there are a lot of us hiking to those out of the way caches. And I came across this website today. It has the essentials of hiking safely, making the trek and coming home. It covers the afternoon hikes and the longer several day adventures. Just a reminder that you should bring along your common sense. And a few other things.
Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.
