#TrekTipTuesday - proper hydration is a key principle for a safe and happy trip. Did you know our bodies are made up of about 60 percent water? Any activity can quickly decrease that percentage so it’s important to stay hydrated. 
How much you need to drink depends on many factors, including your activity intensity, altitude, age, weather and body type. Learn and exercise the fine-tuning of your particular water needs for different treks. Also, keep water available and drink smaller sips often. Pre-hydrating is also a common and well-used principle before a hike. 
In the mountains, we bring enough water along with us and also bring with a water filter so we can refill at lakes and streams.

Bottoms up & cheers! 😎

#TrekTipTuesday – Many of us spend a lot of hours of physical training to get prepared for a trip. Have you considered strengthening your mental strength and endurance just as much? 
Mental training to gain and maintain a positive mindset and a survivor mentality will benefit your outdoor activities. It will help you apply common sense, know your limits, or make a call in changing weather and physical strength conditions. Not training your mental strength and endurance may compromise your physical strength and skills. 
Check out the @bcadvsmart program, too. The B.C. AdventureSmart program was created to provide you with great resources on trip planning, bear safety, communications, cougar safety, gear, health and signaling in the B.C. outdoors. .

#TrekTipTuesday 
Hanging food storage in wildlife country - On our treks, we regularly trek and hike in wildlife habitat. We always do our part before venturing into wildlife habitat and check for reported animal activity on our route. Besides being alert and paying attention to signs of bears and alerting potential bears with our presence by calmly talking or singing, we also store our food and scent attractants appropriately at night. 
On this recent trek in July, we stored our food, toothpaste and other smelly items in a lightweight bag and hung it up between a couple of trees, about 15 feet high and six feet away from tree trunks. This particular method is not meant to deter just bears. A more significant threat to your food is mice, rats, squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, gray jays, and other small animals that reside in the backcountry. 
It is essential to tailor your food storage methods according to wildlife conditions, reports, gear feasibility and potential park regulations. 
Tell us about your food storage hacks in the comments, please.
