I enjoy hiking alone. For one thing, you don't have to arrange your schedule to fit another person.
I'm basicially a morning person, getting out on the trail at daybreak. But sometimes I have to hike after work. I love walking a river trail, watching the water cascade down rocky bends deep in bear country, alone.
Wearing cargo pants, I can bring a few things like keys and employee I.D. But the most important thing I bring is my Sling. Watch the short video and see what I have in this ultralight survival kit.
