Creating A Powerful Business

If you are like most people, you might have an idea or two about a new business, but wonder what you can actually do to make the wheels start turning. I began focusing more carefully on business a few years ago, and it was really interesting to see the difference that we were able to make. Within a few short months, we were able to completely overhaul our company, and it really helped to make it more powerful in the long run. I wanted to start this blog to help other people to create incredible businesses that can help the world.

Tips For Rainy Weather Hiking

Spending a lot of time outdoors requires the right gear. For many people that have started hiking, rain is one of the biggest worries. Hiking in wet weather can be very rewarding in terms of seeing plant and animal life that isn't active in drier conditions. Staying warm, comfortable, and safe is the key. The following tips can help you kit yourself out for rain properly:

Tip #1: Choose the right amount of rain protection

When it comes to rain gear, you have three primary options – waterproof, water repellent, and quick-drying. In hot weather water resistant or high quality breathable waterproof options are best. This is because non-breathable waterproof clothing will cause you to sweat, which means you will end up just as wet as if you weren't wearing rain gear. Quick drying is also a good option in hot weather, particular for pants and socks. In colder weather, water-resistant clothing can help trap warmth.

Tip #2: Mind the core

Your core is one of the main areas where you want to stay dry, so a good rain jacket should be your first investment. Another option in areas with a lot of rain but not much wind is a hiking umbrella. These clip to your backpack and they keep the rain off as well as the sun in clearer weather. You should also invest in a wide-brimmed at or at least opt for a jacket with a deep hood, or water will end up running down your neck and into the jacket.

Tip #3: Rain pants are optional

If you hike in warmer months only, you may not need rain pants. If you wear quick-drying shorts or a hiking skirt, this and your bare legs will quickly dry once you are out of the rain. If you do want rain pants, opt for a version that zips off into shorts. This way if you are hot, you can easily bare your legs.

Tip #4: Don't overlook your feet

Wet feet are more prone to blisters. Waterproof shoes are a good option for heavy rain and very wet trails. Just bring plenty of extra socks and change them often so your feet are always dry. For moderate rain, a pair of waterproof gaiters that you wear over the top of the shoes, along with changes of socks, is usually sufficient.

Tip #5: Bring dry clothing

Finally, make sure you have something dry to change into at the end of the day. If you are day hiking, you can stash a change of clothing in your car. For overnight hiking and backpacking, make sure you pack a change of clothing to take with you.
