When participating on a day tramp it's important to know what you need to bring:-
You will need a Day Pack (10L - 25 L) with the following:
LUNCH: A packed lunch. The food you bring must be substantial. Tramping is strenuous so diet or low calorie food is NOT appropriate.
FLUIDS: Adequate water for the length of the trip. As a guide a minimum of 600ml. More will be required on a hot summers day walk, anything up to 1 - 2 Litres
SNACKS: Allow snack bars or scroggin mixture for a couple of snacks plus extra for emergencies.
FOOTWEAR: Tramping boots (or strong shoes for easy tramps). Also suitable socks to ensure comfort and avoid blisters and injury. DENIM jeans are NOT acceptable. Avoid cotton clothing.
FIRST AID KIT and TORCH: Sun block, sun hat, eg: Band aids, blister blockers.
PERSONAL MEDICATION (please advise trip leader BEFORE departure if you have a medical condition).
A change of clothes and clean shoes for travelling after the tramp. Plus a plastic bag for muddy boots.
