048-Choosing a tent for hiking

Show Notes

If you belong to just about any online hiking forum one of the most commonly discussed topics that you will see posted is ‘what sort of tent should I buy?’ Unfortunately there is no one answer to this question and really what you end up choosing will depend on a range of factors that is most cases are unique to you.

This episode discusses the key considerations in choosing a tent for hiking. These include:

  • Tent size
  • What conditions are you using it in?
  • Cost vs. weight vs. durability
  • Features
  • Don’t forget the tent pegs

What is a Podcast?

While many people are familiar with podcasts, to some the term is still an unknown. So what is a podcast? The best way to think of a podcast is as digital radio on demand. You get to listen to a program of your choice at a time of your choosing and through your preferred technology e.g. the computer, a smart phone, or a tablet, etc.

Podcasts have the advantage over other types of electronic media in that you can be doing other activities  such as driving to work or exercising while you listen.
