Jeeping is one of the best ways to explore the outdoors. It’s fun, can be done in groups, with kids, and even with dogs, and it allows one to see nature in a unique way. Jeeping can also be very exhilarating, going down steep hills and along cliff sides. As a result, it is important to be as prepared as possible before going jeeping. Here are just a few tips to keep in mind before heading out on the trails:
1. Go with a guide and bring maps. These trails can be dangerous if one doesn’t know where they are going. Having a guide as well as maps is very important as a result. Even if one doesn’t go with a guide, getting maps and consulting someone who knows the area beforehand is a good idea.
2. Bring plenty of water. This is especially important in places like Moab, where the summer temperatures can get well over 100 degrees. Drinking water – and having some food – help to keep one’s energy up, and can keep one from getting sick or hurt.
3. Have the proper gear and clothing. This includes things like first aid kits, good shoes, layers or short sleeves depending on the weather, and so on. Choosing the best gear and clothing to fit the situation can be a lot of help, and keep you more comfortable while in the outdoors.
With tips like the above, going jeeping can be a little bit easier and safer for everyone.
