Chris and Greg present hiking tips and discuss essential items they bring while hiking in Jordan. This episode elaborates on communication on the trail, GPS equipment, the importance of tea on the hike, hiking boots and comfort stops.
Stay in Touch - Communication
When you come to Jordan, you can bring your mobile phone - buy a local Sim card very cheaply and have an operational mobile phone before you go into the national parks.
Go to their website and see if you can find some telephone numbers of the rangers, the tourist police -- always useful to have those already plugged in your cell phone before you go into hiking area.
And then of course Chris knowing where you are is the GPS. Absolutely, you might have noticed that Chris and I always wear a GPS in the hiking movies that we have on the internet
With the GPS, we always know where we are.
When you come to Jordan with our hiking book and your GPS, make sure you load up all the e-trails that we share with you. That way, you will never get lost - it is really handy to have, but of course in addition to that what Chris said earlier, the compass -- it's always good to have with you as well.
The compass doesn't run out of batteries -- have plenty of batteries for your GPS, but the compass is a fallback if you know how to you use it. Again, it will help you stop being disorientated and falling into strive.
