        We also recommend posting to social media on your first hike and letting people know what you are doing. It is great to have a support team, even if they are only virtual. Make sure to use the hashtag #AAGmarch2022 
        We love to cheer on the participants and feature users on our social media platforms. 

        WHAT HIKE WOULD YOU RECOMMEND FOR MY CHALLENGE?

        Every person is different. We find that most people are limited more by time than any other factor.  Make no mistake; the AAG Hiking Challenge is a serious undertaking.

        WHAT SHOULD I BRING ON MY HIKE? 

        Always be prepared.... 

        You should always have a small first aid kit with you. You never know what will happen, and having a first aid kit can make a scary situation easier or even just ease small discomforts. To avoid injury, you should always have proper footwear. Supportive shoes or boots can help prevent injuries.

        Always bring food and water with you. Bring what you think is enough for the time you are gone, then get a little extra. As long as you bring the type of food that can handle a hike, you won’t have to worry about it going to waste if it is not eaten.

        Even the most experienced hikers can get lost. Having a cell phone or other radio communicator type, if there is no cell signal, is a must. If you intend to venture off the trail or know you are in an unfamiliar place, you should also consider bringing a map or handheld GPS to help you out.

        Plan for the weather. Check the forecast before you go out and bring extra clothing items (or sunscreen) even if there’s a chance you may need it. Along the same lines, the sun can go down very fast, so consider bringing a flashlight or headlamp with you as well. If you are comfortable carrying one, you can bring a pocket knife or other multipurpose tool (like an army knife).

        The challenge lasts for 31 days in March.  How long it will take depends entirely on you, your schedule, and how often you can hike.

        WHAT DO I GET WHEN I COMPLETE MY GOAL?

        Personal satisfaction and everlasting glory! Just kidding.  But seriously, we hope that the challenge will be a life-changing experience and encourages community involvement.  We know it was for us. Completing the challenge can be a source of strength for years to come and improve your life in ways you may never have imagined.
