EF’s Top Ten Packing Tips

  • – Pack your own bag! –

    Don’t let your mom, dad, wife, sister, husband pack for you…it’s important to know how to pack and repack the bag the same way.

     

    – Lay out everything –

    Think of what you’ll need to bring and strategize from there. Don’t pack piecemeal.

     

    – Space out your bag correctly. –

    Get your big items situated first and keep weight low and centred. Shells and outerwear can be stuffed in the front and side pockets. Leave enough room in your bag to fit both your fists inside.

     

    – Place items in your bag strategically. –

    Attach lighter items to the front of your pack with carabiners and balance out each side. Use external loops and straps to secure awkwardly shaped items like tent poles and sleeping pads.

     

    – Pack survival items. –

    Place these items in the brain of the pack, for fast emergency access.

     

    – Pack Towels –

    Quick Dry towels are the way to go. Never bring something that absorbs water (like a normal towel), you want wick materials!

     

    – Pack liquids –

    Place these liquids at the very bottom of a pack in the event of a leak.

     

    – Avoid over-packing –

    Clean and pack everything no more than 24hrs in advanced. This still gives you time to get things you need and less chance of over-packing.

     

    – Reduce the load –

    Look at the amount of clothing you plan to bring, then cut it in half. It’s not a wilderness experience otherwise! I suggest base-layers that can provide both breathability and warmth.

     

    – Create even more space. –

    Roll items instead of folding and use waterproof compression bags to slim down puffy items like sleeping bags, as it will help create more space and protect against a downpour.

     

    – Bonus Tip –

    Deflate your dry food packages with a pin and cover the hole with tape to save more space.

    Ten Ways to Stay in Shape on Vacation

  • – Wake Up Early –

    The most important step in staying in shape while away is to get your butt up early enough to catch the sunrise. This beautiful natural phenomenon will increase endorphins and give you the jumpstart you need to get your day going. After your exercise or activity, recover with a healthy breakfast and be sure to include some protein and nuts for better results.

     

    – Sightseeing Bike Ride –

    One of the best ways to cover a good portion of sightseeing while on vacation is to rent a bike and ride around the more challenging routes. This allows for a good workout while mapping out locations and taking in wonderful landscapes. Be sure to wear your safety helmet!

     

    – Eat Right, Feel Better –

    The key to staying in shape and feeling good, always begins with eating right. When you’re on vacation, it’s no different and feeling good should be a priority. Eat until you’re 75% full, so that you can snack more. This will keep you light on your feet, energized and avoids feeling ‘heavy’. Include healthy proteins, nuts, veggies you can pack and ensure that your breakfast is the largest meal of the day – and preferably after your morning exercise or activity.

     

    – Water Sports –

    Getting in the water is rejuvenating and enhances stress management almost instantly. Participating in sports like swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing and canoeing are great ways to stay in shape while you’re away. It also allows you to try a new sport and challenge yourself functionally, which is great for working smaller muscles you may not use as much. Don’t forget your lifejacket!

     

    – Stairs –

    These are wonderful sources of exercise for anyone on vacation because we can find stairs almost anywhere! Use them. They make for great cardio workouts and allows for a good variation of leg workouts – from single, double, triple step running to step jumping! Perform the stair workouts for approximately 25 minutes and follow with a good stretch.

     

    – Yoga –

    Why not take time to treat your mind, body and soul when you’re away? Yoga in the outdoors overlooking beautiful landscapes brings you to a whole new level of rejuvenation. This refreshing exercise will have you relaxed, recharged and ready to tackle more challenges. Don’ forget your yoga mat!

     

    – Hiking –

    In our opinion, we think hiking is the greatest way to explore sites, wherever you are. The natural terrain and fresh air is great for the body and you can increase the intensity of the activity by changing routes. Start off with a manageable intensity and work your way up to the more difficult hikes as the vacation progresses. If you get a chance, go for a hike up a volcano, mountain trek or uphill climbs that will get the heart pumping. Don’t forget to bring comfortable hiking shoes, we recommend Salomons!

     

    – Local Activities –

    One thing people may not realize is that there are local activities happening in almost every place you visit, as long as it’s inhabited! Things like sports, dancing and heck, even outdoor exercises. So take advantage of these local activities that may be going on and Join right in! You’ll meet new friends, explore new talents and experiences and get your body moving in no time.

     

    – Search for Climbing Sites –

    Take out your map or ask a guide to help you find some good climbing sites. Whether it’s rock, hill or steep trek climbing, it is a great way to work your full body and you’ll thank yourself for doing it. Have an instructor give you the basic techniques to stay safe during climbs and invest into a pair of climbing shoes so when you’re away, you can hit the hills or rocks!

     

    – Use Natural Resources –

    Take a look at your surroundings and use whatever you can to add variation and intensity to an exercise. You may want to invest into bands or TRX tools to use around trees for a great workout. Look for things like tree logs or stumps heavy enough to manage while you’re doing squats and farmers walk. Its a great full body exercise you can apply for 20-30 minutes.

     

    – In-Room Exercise –

    Sometimes, during a down pour or fully packed day, it just makes it easier to get your morning workout done in the room, shower and hit the streets. On those days, here’s a workout that will help:
    Ensure that you conduct each ‘Set’ of exercises in order with no rest in between.
    SET 1:
    A1) Plyo or Fast Press Push-ups – 15 repetitions
    A2) Burpees with 2 quick pushups – 10 repetitions
    A3) Deep Squat Jumps (butt to the ground) – 10 repetitions
    A4) Mountain Climbers – 20 repetitions (10 each side)
    Rest 60 seconds and repeat 5 times (then move on to Set 2)
    SET 2:
    B1) Step Ups (use firm chair or stairs) – 15 repetitions (per leg)
    B2) Alternating Lunge – 30 total
    B3) Side Hops (place object or line on floor and hop over it) – 50 hops total
    Rest 60 seconds and repeat 5 times (and you’re done)
    Total workout time: Approx 30 minutes
