Long distance hiking considerations

A start point

So you are thinking about doing a long distance hike that will take you more than two weeks? Once you start hiking and camping for this length of time you have moved beyond what many hikers will ever do and while many of the considerations are the same as for shorter hikes there are some that you may not have thought about. The following is a list of things that I consider for doing hikes longer than two weeks, regardless of the distance travelled. This list is by no means exhaustive and some of the considerations may not even apply to you being designed to suit my requirements. There will also be other things that you may want to add that relate only to your own circumstances. Hopefully this will provide a starting point and help in the planning for your journey. Good luck!
