The first thing you need to remember are the 10 Hiking Essentials. These are necessary things that you need to pack anytime you are going on a day hike or an overnight backpacking trip. It’s a good thing to get into the habit of packing these things no matter where you’re going!

You can’t forget to pack the things you need for your special day, too! Safety is extremely important, so please make sure you’re always prepared and use our lists above to pack in advance. Below, we’re going to list some things you’ll want to consider bringing to your outdoor adventure elopement!
No matter where you’re eloping, you’re always going to want to be prepared for the weather! So, we’ve come up with a few different locations and what you might want to remember to pack.
WATER WATER WATER!!! And a purifier!!!!! If you are overnighting in a desert location you need to know where your water source is. Sun protection is also a must. Protect yourself!
Always be ready for the cold. In some locations, it can be a hot day, but then after the sun goes down, the temperature can drop rapidly. Bring layers and something warm to sleep in. When we were in Grand Tetons National Park in July it was in the 70s during the day, and yet it ended up snowing in the evening. So be prepared no matter what!
Waterproof gear! It rains a lot on the coast so make sure you are ready for it!
