DH and I want to get into hiking. We visited a state park and did quite a bit of day hikes and saw a lot more that we want to go do. But these would be overnight hikes (23 miles long). We have started looking into the backpacks that we would need along with sleeping bags for colder weather and wrap up pretty small. But I'm wondering if anyone does a lot of hiking that can give me some tips/tricks to know before we get started on this.
We are thinking of doing more hiking next year so I've got time to "stock up" on supplies and things.
